imageLast week was a rather stressful/intense/faith-stretching/scary kind of week. Three situations in particular were quite yucky, and each looked pretty hopeless to me. Each also had the potential to really blow up in some tough ways (yes, my mind went to the worst-case scenario pretty quickly – including police, deportation, violence, feuding,...

imageHere’s the alternate, melodramatic title to this blog: Clouds blocking out the sun.  The winter here in northeast Japan is cloudy.  No, we don’t get a lot of snow and, no, it’s not even super cold (although inside and outside temperatures are about the same…).  But it sure is grey.  I know the sun is...
