Surviving Transitions and My Idiot Yesterdays by Steve Crosby

And He said to her: “What do you wish?“ She said to Him, “Command that in Your kingdom these two sons of mine may sit one on Your right and one on Your left.” But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?” They said to...
