        What makes you angry?  Think for a moment about a time you got good and mad.  Are there general categories of things that make you mad?  What are they?  Inconsiderate drivers?  Liars? People who get in the ten-item express lane at the grocery store with twenty items?
        I got mad at a […]

This is a picture of my Jesus. I call him my Jesus because this was the painting that hung on the wall at my grandmother’s house, and now hangs at my parent’s house.

This painting is actually […]
