Happy Birthday To Me!

Hello Friends!

37 Years Ago Today, I left my mother’s warm confines to confront cold reality. Like literally. I remember.

I have grown a little since then and life has had it’s ups and downs. Living for God has made the difference and I am blessed with a wonderful family, church, house, and job.

During these tough times I would like to impart that life is not a rat race to the top or a fight to aquire the latest toys.

Follow God’s ways and develop relationships with those you love.

That’s all I have for this post. I wish every one of you a blessed Sunday!
