Say what you want but for me, Jesus is the reason. I can not tell my story properly without giving thanks to my Lord for keeping me throughout this journey. He sent love my way through many avenues, especially, the Church. For today’s post, I must honor the Greensboro Church fam! Sharpe Road, formerly South English Street, Church of Christ has seen me come and go along the way. I do appreciate the many fellowship gatherings, choir/song group rehearsals, and free meals we shared. 

Now this story actually pre-dates my optometry ventures but it’s a worthy share. Around the summer of 2008, I stood up before the congregation asking if someone could offer temporary housing for Free.99 (LOL). After service, a sweet lady approached me and invited me to visit her home. She said she had an extra room but her husband would need to give the final okay for me to stay. Well, they opened their home to me, fed me, provided a car for my commute, and eventually called me their own. That’s when I discovered that love could exist without fear.

Reflections during this period: 

I’ll just list a few of my favorite scriptures that I reflect on often. Philippians 3:14, 1 John 4:16-21, 1 Thessalonians 5:12-18, Matthew 5:3-12
