March reflection – Heritage and Tradition

By Priscilla Penny

What is our Heritage? Something that comes to us by reason of birth. We can inherit land or a portion of the land. Our Heritage is the environment into which we are born and raised.

As I stood engrossed, I felt God whisper powerful truth to me: “That’s you, Claire.” Literally, I was the human equivalent of a drained geyser: I was running on empty. Burnt out. Done.
