three – back to zero

(offtopic) chaffinch starts his song at 06:43 in the morning. ——————————————————————————– i chose Christ, not because i feared to die, but rather because He did not; i walk with Him not because of religion, but of companionship, call it love. i do not know who loved whom first – i in my finite predisposition, or He […]
