Take It Slow

What do you do when you walk into a café one late Sunday afternoon and you notice a beautiful, sexy and confident black woman sitting across from your table, alone and who stares through to your soul?  Remind yourself that you’re already in a relationship and look away?  Do you move to another table where …

Jesus Couldn’t Come Down
