Some of what I’m leaving behind in this season is the need to please everyone. I want to respect all people. I want to learn from all people, most especially people who are different from me and who disagree with me, but pleasing, for me, is over.
What a great chapter to read in this season of America.
Spend 10 minutes on social media and you’ll surely find people disagreeing, bashing, fighting and trying to tell why everyone else is wrong and they are right.

More focus to God and the people we love most. Amen? Amen!
