A Way to Pray

Putting my hand's palm to palm, I opened them to form a cup. I prayed, imagining my prayer taking form into my cupped hands. I imagined, God's hand, loving hands, underneath my own, When every word of mine, no longer had a name, when only silence stood between my heart and hands, when my prayer(s) sat heavy in my hands-- I opened them, letting them pour out to the hands underneath. Letting go. Letting be. Trusting that the loving hands underneath my own held my prayer. That is faith, bringing m...

18 Free and Cheap Things to Do in Singapore

Updated: 2/27/2019 | February 27, 2019 Singapore is an expensive place to visit. There’s no way around it. The small city state is priced relative to the United States, which is a lot more expensive than its neighbors! On a small stop-over trip, this isn’t a problem. But on a big trip through the region, a trip into Singapore can elicit sticker shock, and it can turn people away if they’re trying to do the area on the cheap. If you still want to visit this country, though, there are still man...
