When Life Gives You Lemons... But You're Allergic To Them

It was a normal Sunday morning with the exception of a 10 mile run in preparation for the TCS NYC Marathon.

I walked into church a few minutes after the music had started and saw my husband leading worship on the stage. I’ve been seeing this sight since I was 13 or 14 in the church we grew up together in.
