Do you ever feel guilty about being blessed? How often do you board the train that takes you on a guilt-trip? For Catholics, guilt comes easy. For an Asian Catholic, guilt comes even more easily. I am an Asian Catholic. It is expected that I will sometimes write about guilt as I did a little…… Continue reading What is your bottom line?
What bothers you about people? Do bad people upset you? I don’t mean criminal bad or pure evil bad. That’s pretty obvious.
