Remember how much God loves you and how far you've come since the first time you acknowledged and received His love. No matter what you're going through, never forget He will always be there for you. He loves you. Stay encouraged and when you're able as much as you can continue to share His love.Read More
Words don't really exist to express how I feel about what I read happened yesterday in Chicago that was broadcast on Facebook Live. Simmering beneath the amber waves of grey, pooling together at the foot of the purple mounted majesties above the fruited plains where God shed His grace the spirit of dissension fueled by centuries of ignorance, a list of ridiculous 'isms' and hate has taken root, festered and with every generation in a new different way opens as a vile ugly thing for all with eyes willing to see a new hatred blooms.Read More
