Five Minute Friday-For this, I share
The topic of mental health is a difficult one, especially in the Christian community. I strongly believe Christians fully accept mental health as an essential dialogue within the church.

With each breath I’m taking in.
Anchored by invisible weights
Chains rattle, and tears fall.

But see nothing here at all.
