This May Be My Last Time – I don’t know / So this is for you to KNOW!
I often skim down my timeline and many things that I share here publicly on Facebook, YouTube, Blogger, and surely and other social media network that I have access to. It’s never my intention to do so when my fingers start walking across this keyboard. I always trust it was God’s will that for whatever reason whatever will be coming through from my fingertips will be used for His Glorification at the “End Result”.

Of course it’s not human nature to put yourself out there as the sensitive person that you are if you know that it’s only going to make you even more pathetic than you actually were before… There is a part of me even now thinking… (Dude, you were pretty pathetic) What kid in this century walks around with a big ole granny bible at his side in the TH grade?
