How To Grow Spiritually

I stood at my kitchen window watching the baby magpie. It intrigued me. Each morning, as the sun called forth the day, I watched the mother and baby fly down from the tree to the yard below.  At first, the baby stayed in the same place, not moving around, just watching its mother. The mother […]
