A Testament to Love
My family is the best. Although we have our hard times, I would rather be "at home" than anywhere else in the world because of the love I find there.
A Friendship Poem for a Lifetime
"Make new friends, but keep the old
One is Silver and the other Gold
A Ring is round, it has no end
That's how long I want to be your friend."
A Special Thanks
To all of my friends who put up with me and encourage me to the best I can be, thank you for your love and friendship, especially you Gilligan.
I believe the presence of an amazing God is irrefutable in the face of the amazing creation in this world; nature convicts me of a higher being. I believe God has given us a love greater than any human, and a spirit to guides us if we will seek it. Spiritual discovery has been a journey for me these last few years. It is a journey I believe everyone must take no matter how frustrating or long because you cannot blindly believe. You must believe with your whole being.
