I’m Corona positive. What they don’t tell you and what to expect.

I’m Corona positive.  How did it happen?  Who’s to say…the germ found me and invaded.  I’m recovering, thank G-d but I didn’t think it would be like this.  It’s not the horror story of symptoms we’ve been indoctrinated into fearing … Continue reading I’m Corona positive.

Only the Master of the World is there to hear me.  How does one connect … Continue reading The Best Freebie of All: Prayer
