Gentleness (Audio Message)

Sunday, May 22nd, 2005

[audio:http://www.asliceoflifetogo.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09/05-Gentleness.mp3] When you think of “gentle”, what comes to mind? Someone who is weak? A doormat? A pushover?

I’m at a Jamba Juice in Mesa, Arizona waiting for my Berry Lime Sublime smoothie when I notice a lady staring at my America West Arena name badge. “Is Swea City, Iowa your home town?” I tell her it sure is. And how impressed I am that she pronounced it correctly. Swea City’s a small […]
