Desiring Peace Means Practicing Peace

Holiday Strategies -- Boiling Beans, Burns and Inner Peace
I often say I write this blog mostly for myself. That it seems sometimes to help or encourage others is gratifying, but I need it as much as anyone. Case in point: I got first- and second-degree burns when I spilled a pot of boiling beans a couple days ago....
