Wake Up And Pay Attention in 2013

Warning-wake-up-signBahamas as we head into 2013, please be mindful and reminded of this – it’s time now to stop being so selfish and self-centered and start looking at what is happening to your brother, your sister and your country and be the change you want to see.

If that means you must take a stand, by God’s grace STAND. 2013 can be the year the tables turn – if we turn our hearts to God and our ears and eyes toward our homes and neighborhoods and what’s really happening around us everyday that we keep living in denial about. Continue reading
