God Gave Me a Second Chance After I Wore the “Scarlet D”

ShareTweet I suddenly felt his hand appear on the low of my back. It slid slowly done my spine and rested there gently as we made our way down the frozen food aisle. Just an ordinary day of typical grocery shopping, yet when his warm palm rested in the curve of my spine I felt extraordinary. I felt special, I felt blessed, I felt loved. How in the world a simple gesture like a hand on my back could almost bring me to my knees, I do not know. But…

ShareTweet It’s hard to count the number of times I’ve woken up on Sunday craving Chick-fil-A (because my mind somehow subconsciously knows I can’t have it). I drive up to the empty parking lot assuming I just won the breakfast lottery with NO drive-thru line, only to realize they’re closed. Obviously. Anyone with any sort of love for this one-of-a-kind food chain already knows that the Christian-owned operation closes on Sunday to honor the Sabbath — but every once in a while, Chick-fil-A will open its doors on Sundays to…

Where’s the fairy godmother?

Jeremy Corbyn vowed he would be a different kind of leader and listen to his party’s membership. So what’s the problem? Surely he should just say “sure”, and acquiesce?

Because while Labour MPs and members are overwhelmingly among those who voted Remain, millions of people who had voted Labour put their cross in the Leave…
