My mom, step dad Booker and their 3 boys Devon, Teshawn and Diondre along with my niece Aja drove from Kansas to visit us in our new home. That is a 22 hour drive. Of course this does not include bathroom breaks, meal times and stretch your leg cause you’ve got cramps times. It was a long drive but they all made it safe and in good spirits. It was wonderful having them all visit. I love having my mom near and chatting with her during quiet times. Sitting next to each other, just being in her presence. The kids had an amazing time hanging out with cousins. We had a Mandatory Family Fun Movie Night were we watched Narnia….again. Lots of pool time, adventures in downtown Channel side and eating whole, fresh, football size avocados purchased from a food stand provided for some great moments of fun and yumm! Poor Booker spent his time recuperating from the drive. The next few blogs will be of their visit with us.

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
