Hope my son is one day worthy of a girl like this:— ~Dannah Gresh, Author of “Get Lost”
“A girl needs to be so lost in God that a guy has to seek HIM to find her.
This is our family’s second time reading the Bible through in a year. It is a time where we grow closer emotionally and spiritually. I would recommend taking the time to do this for your family as a way to grow closer.
Happy 15th Birthday to my Firstborn Son, Kobe Slamans!!
He went to be with The Lord only 5 hours after he was born. That day changed my life forever. His life and death rocked my world. But it made me a stronger mother, more compassionate woman and closer to Christ than had it not happened. I can’t wait until the day we are reunited in Heaven. Happy Birthday, Kobe! We love you!
— CeeCee Winans - “Everlasting Love”
Where there is grief, there will be hope
And if ever a hand is in need, know that I’ll be holdin’ on
Know that the peace that comes from above
Is the same everlasting love
Remember me whenever you’re all alone
And if it helps you to sleep know that I’ll be looking on
Know that the peace that you dream of
Is the same everlasting love
You know I’ve watched you carry all this weight upon your shoulders
As if no one understands what you go through
But with all the might in you, believe what I say is true
When I say that I will never ever leave you or forsake you
So you just reach out as far as you can
Should the whole world just stare in disbelief
Know that I’ll take hold of your hand
What your heart feels is what you sing of
Is the same everlasting love, everlasting love, everlasting love
When the darkness filled the earth and sky
And the tears welled up in the corners of my eyes
And the sun wouldn’t shine on the pourin’ rain
Wondered if I’d ever see the light again
When the stars protest at the moon’s refrain
And I told myself I’d surely go insane
And the Earth kept turnin’ at an alarmin’ pace
And I couldn’t talk my heart out of joinin’ the race
I remember a time I couldn’t close my eyes
I would lie awake dispairin’, don’t know how many nights
Afraid of death that my chest would give way to the fear
Pulled the covers over my head and I closed my ears
In attempt to escape the deafening sounds of silence
In attempt to escape these constant visions of violence
And with death as close as it could possibly get
Heard a voice in the distance sayin’, “Cece not yet”
Then suddenly the darkness gave away to the light
And I threw off the covers as I closed my eyes
Just in time to feel your spirit grab my body like a glove
And I knew in that moment that it was your
That it was your everlasting, lasting love
I said it was your everlasting love, yesterday and today
Forever more it will remain, even now it’s still the same
‘Cause my love will never change, know that the peace
That comes from above is that same everlasting love
what i never
from my mother
just because someone desires you.
not mean they value you.
desire is the kind of thing that
leaves you starving.

I need to read this over and over until I truly understand what the words mean.
Freedom of speech does not mean that there will not be repercussions. He can say whatever he wishes without any legal action, but if he is saying things that are detrimental to the business he is working for, they have every right to fire him because of that. The fact that everyone is so disturbed that he was fired, yet no one is saying anything about the fact that one can get fired in 29 states for being gay, is rather disgusting. So yes, freedom of speech, but use your brain, please.— ryanisbaking
You can’t have it both ways. Now anyone can get fired for saying anything that hurts someone else’s feelings. But it depends on whom. We have become a soft nation. He’s being fired not for what he said about Black people though. I find that rather interesting…he’s free to insult black people? Either accept free speech or don’t. I don’t care what he said about blacks because he has a right too and our country has disrespected blacks for hundreds of years. Get fired because being gay? How about don’t even GET hired because you’re black…
