Recent Shooting in Charlotte

My heart goes out to the family of Keith Scott. Peaceful protest have done some good and its good to see even the national guards giving the citizens of Charlotte warm handshakes and hugs... Then I hear of folks getting shot up in a mall. I pray for a more permanent solution to all this blood shed, violence and pain. The only solution (Matthew 6:9,10)...Come Lord Quickly!

She had type 1 diabetes since she was 21 and her overall health was suddenly declining as though she was giving up on life. She had started drinking and smoking more I guess as a way to cope with… Continue
