Featured Spiritual Story:
Learning to Accept Miracles

Yesterday, I realized I have accustomed myself to living a life of austerity. I noticed this as I found a gorgeous steel-string guitar at a local thrift shop for only $35 that I almost walked away from, thinking surely someone else needed it more than I did.

The ultimate question he has to answer, and it's one that we all must answer every single day is...

What does it to finally break the cycle of the day that never ends?
