From Pam

I am afraid of very blustery wind-storms. the-princess-and-a-very-winnie-the-pooh-blust-L-LZ8BwYMy ability to be free from hate. I have never had this sense of emotion and I feel it is a great grace God has given to me. (This is not to be confused with anger…which is a feeling that if not addressed can lead to hatred.)

From Anand
