Tonight is National Night Out against crime... Please find one in your local community to support...Everyday someone's family is torn apart by violence. It's really sad and disheartening. I lost my brother to senseless violence years ago and the pain still haunts me. I can relate to every picture of hurt ones in the paper because once upon a time I was that person. I wish we all could come together and change this epidemic within our communities. Praying for peace. Praying for change. Stop the violence. #stoptheviolence#senseless#crimevictims#nightoutagainstcrime#support#nola#followyournola#prayingforpeace#prayingforchange#peace
In the midst of working through this day.... I was on the receiving end of someone else's carelessness of their words. I had cried all morning.... even at work.... my face was red, my eyes swollen... and I was feeling insecure about that. While on lunch someone made a comment about my bloodshot eyes laughing... and pointing saying.... "oh your Halloween makeup is hilarious...." I was stunned.... mortified.... and found myself sinking deep into my chair. I hung my head down as tears streamed from my eyes. I was ashamed that I had grieved while at work. I criticized myself for not being stronger... and I spent the rest of my work day avoiding everyone. I felt defeated.... embarrassed.... and so devastatingly sad.... this day kicked my butt. Tonight I thanked HIM for helping me not respond in anger... instead forgiving the person for their careless words. I now understand how kids can be so cruel 😢💙 #thankfulitsbedtime#prayingforpeace
October 15, is infant loss awareness day. Praying for all my friends who have lost their babies to soon. Our sweet Caroline was 26 weeks when she went to be with Jesus. Ironically it was this month 2 years ago. Absolutely the hardest thing I have ever been through but God! He is a faithful friend and Father. After trying to get pregnant for 6 years we have Harrison our precious miracle. He brings so much joy to our lives. He would have loved his twin sister Caroline. Can’t wait to see them together one day. .
The loss is there but the pain will subside! Joy does come back and with it a testimony that can help others. .
Remind yourself that God is faithful always! He will take care of you and he loves you big. #infantlossawareness#prayingforpeace#godisfaithful
🎶Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!🎶
Today the Anglican Churches of Dartmouth hosted a “One Sky, One World” event for peace. It just so happened that it also allowed me to cross another item off my bucket list…. I really do have the best job.
I was truly surprised at today's staff meeting. I was presented with such a special gift, and my heart is full. My co-worker who presented the certificate indicated she recognized me and my son on the news. We volunteered with other community members to spread the word about speaking up if anyone knew information about a horrible crime which led to the death of a young pregnant woman. I kept thinking what if that was one of my family members. I prayed for that family's justice. It was very important for my children to volunteer also. I don't care how successful they are in life, they need to know the importance of Giving Back. After two years the authorities have arrested a suspect. I commend every individual who stands and fights for justice unapologetically. I pray for their strength each day, and peace for our communities. #standingforjustice#prayingforpeace#takecareofourcommunities

This explains so much! If only everyone understood the damage that is done when you continue to allow enabling behavior. Can people change the color of their skin, or a leopard remove its spots? If they could, then you that do nothing but evil could learn to do what is right. Jeremiah 13:23 #prayingforpeace#prayingforchange
Today, 2yrs ago, we walked out of a hospital with a small, white knit blanket and hat, and a card with little footprints. We didn’t get to see or hold him. In fact, the doctor recommended we didn’t, due to his medical issues. We decided not to bury him. We hated Kansas and would NEVER return to visit him. We decided not to cremate him. We were not emotionally capable of carrying his little urn. We just desperately wanted to make it all disappear.
Thinking back, there are so many things we probably should’ve done differently... Den and I have both grieved a grandparent, but never a child we excepted to cuddle, read to, watch his first steps, kiss, yell at (lol), send off to school, and then off to adulthood... I am thankful and astounded by the community of love we have surrounding us. It takes a special type of patience to effortlessly love grieving parents. I thank you guys!
October is the month of pregnancy and infant loss. Please check on your friends and family who miscarried and loss.
Standing in solidarity with all of those affected by yesterday’s earthquake 🙏🏾#ayiticherie 🇭🇹 #prayingforpeace#protection and for those suffering emotionally and mentally right now with nowhere to turn 😔
