Ego vs. Soul

Love Is Why

Have you ever had a song come to you seemingly out of the blue that keeps playing in your head? Have you stopped to notice if the song lyrics may bear a message to you about what’s going on in your life? This happens to me quite often, especially first thing in the morning as […]
