    Judge, as you would like to be judged

    Tomorrow is not promised

    Too often we remind others that tomorrow is not guaranteed, yet we live our lives as if we have all the time in the world to make that next big decision, or to do right by others. If tomorrow is not guaranteed, neither is your next breath. When our thoughts about life remain philosophy, and […]
