You may write me down in history
With your bitter twisted lies
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still like DUST, I RISE.

While browsing the internet, I came across the statement “God is a great man”. I thought about it for awhile. I think that person is clearly mistaken. I am so glad that God is not a man… If he were anything like man, I’d be completely lost. Thank you God for being more than a MAN… Thank you for being God.

… mistaken…
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.

There’s something about the innocence of children that makes me smile. They have the capability of correcting all of the mistakes that we’ve made and I’m hopeful that they will.

Intuition’s something deep
Let you know what you know, let you find before you seek
Spirit of discernment, pray for it everyday
Let you know who should go and who you should let stay.
