Wtiness through my writing / art

 I think is best that I witness thru my writing rather that try to be a minister. I feel that is the best path for me to take and I hope. I feel that a minister has to go to school like any other professional. It's not a requirement but have that educational background I believe makes that person a better preacher.

A miracle

 Something incredible happened to me years ago and I shared it with my church brothers and sisters during a Facebook Live session, a Sunday service by Bishop Wade McRae at Union Cathedral Baptist Church in Valdosta, Georgia. Years ago I was homeless. This was 2018. I lived in Valdosta, Georgia. Although I was homeless, I still got a Social Security Check. So one day I caught and Greyhound bus and went to Virginia.

Riots in Minneapolis

We have witnessed another killing of a black man at the hands of the police.  His name was George Floyd and he was arrested for using a counterfeit $20 allegedly at a store.  Police had detained him and he died after an officer  had him on the ground and handcuffed and pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for over 8 minutes.  Floyd was heard in the video telling the officer he could not breathe several times then calling for his mother. Days afterward people mostly black gathered in front of the third precinct which was later burned to the ground. I know this makes us in the Black Community upset, disappointed, and sad but we cannot be violent by no means.  We must remember that this officer is not all police.  Most police dedicated their lives to protecting the community. This death should not have happened and is unexcusable.

Lord I thank you for allowing me to see a new day. You are always there for me and right on time. I ask that you watch over me and my family. I thank you for the home that I am in.
