3 Things (4).

If your audience uses your lectures/sermons/presentations/speeches as an opportunity to 'rest their eyes', you might need to work on your presentation skills.I think about 'Luther', Seasons 1-3 a lot.

Hidden Smile.

I don't know where it came from, The disillusion, hot like the sun. Sometimes it's hard to fathom Our whys and our mission, But I miss being on board With every good thing and not being forlorn.
