NOVEMBER 10th…CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE!! PLEASE JUST ONE!! People will do anything and everything to get your approval, even if what they do is not right.

DEPEND ON GOD!!

NOVEMBER 8th…INDEPENDENT?? NOT ME!! How many of us struggle with being our own person? We were raised to provide for ourselves and not depend on anyone to get us through life.
