I've been asked many times what it means to be spiritual and not religious. I can't speak for other religions, but man has changed Christianity through the years. Corruption throughout history is incomprehensible. *deep breath* That wasn't the direction I wanted to go. I saw this quote, and it felt right for me. Religion is … Continue reading Spirituality Quote
Depths of her soul
From the depths of her soul, inner strength would rise and become her rock foundation. I was shy and unsure of myself when I was young, but as a woman, I blossomed and became strong and independent.
