Quote of the Day

If you believe you won’t be able to excel or prosper as a person, ministry, church, or business without a “particular individual or entity”, you have placed more faith in that party than God. Thusly, the person or entity has become your God. Jesus said, “apart from me (not your pastor, spouse, child, boss, church, etc.)  you can do nothing  (John 15:5).

Love is essential to life itself. Choose to love the easy targets and those who act unlovable. After all, God loves you when it's easy and when you act unlovable. ~Roline Thomas

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16

Happy INDEPENDENCE Day

Today, I have had the best 4th of July ever! We didn't BBQ. No family came over. We didn't get an invite to other celebrations and gatherings. This year we volunteered to serve with The Impact Zone (TIZ) Ministry for their first ever "FREEDOM FEAST." Partnering with the Salvation Army, TIZ served grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, Roline's baked beans, chips, and punch to the homeless. So many people came through the doors looking for a meal.

There was a man who recognized one of the volunteers and myself. He's a former inmate at one of the prisons we minister to. I was sadden to see him in this place. It really shows the need for better re-entry programs for ex-offenders. This man had payed his debt to society, yet with few options available to him and others who are released from prison, it's no wonder why they end up going back to jail.

Here are a few pics:
