Jordan has never been a big birthday party kid. This year he had two of his good friends Christian and Jake come over and just hang out in the pool. They were water logged from being there all day and came out for food and drinks only. I took them to get snacks and each one of them came out with 2 Liter sodas, beef jerky and candy. Who can drink a 2 Liter of soda in one setting my themselves? Needless to say they were up all night. I can’t believe he is a high school freshman. He has changed so much over the years from my competitive, strong willed and quiet little boy to deep thinking and surprisingly conservative young man. One of my favorite memories of him is as a toddler he would walk around with a bat that weighed more than he did and two pacifiers in his mouth. He had this funny dance he would do and he would sing” I’m shaking my booty” lol. Luckily he has grown out of that. He is so serious that it is fun to remind myself of that silly little boy. Sometimes I have to remind him now that it is okay to still be silly. By the way, he doesn’t read my blog so no one mention that tid bit I included about his booty song. Happy Birthday to my J Mann.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
