The same intricate worldbuilding that enthralls one reader will spark an outburst by another bemoaning the novel’s insufferable pace. Further, the task of composing a best of list is extra tricky when applied to the fantasy novel as the lines between that genre and sci-fi have become so blurred in recent years that many curators metaphorically throw up their hands and lump the zany tales together.

Love is a risk every single time. A worthy one. One I have by His grace been able to go all-in on. When we love, we jump. We risk it all for the hope, the promise, the forever.

To me, it reveals God’s grace, his mercy, his healing, and the tenacity He created me with. I have been told many times that I have a gift of love. There’s a reserve within me with which only He could have gifted me.

Maybe even some new inspiration for my fitness goals and plans for the year to help through the dark winter months of COVID-19. (INCLUDES SPOILERS)

This tea, like all breakfast blends I’ve tried, is a bold, dark, rich black tea. The flavor is slightly reminiscent of a cross between Billy Tea – the trail brew of Aussie ranchers – and English Breakfast.
