Bishop Eddie Long: Where does this leave our...
Most if not all of us have heard about the alleged sex scandal involving Bishop Eddie Long and three young men who have come forward. If you’ve not seen or heard the whole story it’s all over Youtube and any other video/news/gossip site. Those who frequent my blog know that I am a woman of faith in Jesus Christ. This scandal didn’t necessarily surprise me because things like...

That's what I like about him.
A dear friend of mine texted me last night and it was a sweet surprise.

There is a measure of depression that lives in it. There is a measure of fear that stiffens it. There is a measure of hopelessness that weighs it down. There is a measure of uncertainty that holds it back. I know. From the...
