November 29th, 2007 · 2 Comments

It Happened Again

November 21st, 2007 · 1 Comment

The first time was a few weeks ago. I had just picked up my new phone that doubles as a sweet mp3 player. I was trying it out as I took the elevator down from our 18th floor apartment. I was fiddling with the controls and decided on “Your Grace is Enough” by Chris Tomlin. […]
