IMG_0181A lamp that is always kept on in the room where Bill W was born.  Now I think that’s a little bit creepy, but I love the verse:

My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.

And of course I must love the camel.

Again, this was an amazing experience and I’m glad I got to go.  If you can only go to one place, though, I would recommend Akron over this.

I’m grateful again for all that happened there and for all the people who work to keep it alive and accessible.
