Trail Of Tears

“Jesus wept.” And since he did then and still does now, it means he weeps with you in all your lonely distresses. It means he weeps with every scared shitless soldier in the killing fields of Ukraine. It means he weeps with all the women who have been treated like

“Do you really mean that?”

In January 2018 I wondered how the heck I ended up in a failure cycle for nearly 25 years. Wondering can be painful. It was then. Of course I wasn’t failing at everything through those years. I kept a career, raised a family, built a marriage. But I did have
