God’s Love is revealed within us, when it is expressed for all people.
It is the power of God’s Love that links us together. The strength of his love dwelling within our spirits binds us together in times of disasters, despair, heartaches and tragedies and forms a chain of power as one people.
Within this chain for opportunity is to choose to love God, and the choice to choose to love those who he has created. Therefore, it is impossible to love God and choose who we love and hate.
God is Love, and to Love God, is to Love rather than hate. Hate close opportunities to have peace with others and establish a meaningful relationship.
To become stronger than the things that weakens our character, and breed a generation of people filled with hate for others who disregards all human rights and dignity; committing violent acts against others while showing no remorse will only produce other generations of aggressiveness far more harmful to the human race than previous generations, we must become better people.
In this day and time disrespect for the rights of others, have become a worldwide problem. Women rights to have their bodies respected are being violated by men who commit sexual assault and battery against them.
*We are not defined by belief or by faith nor religion. We are the family of God.

“The greatest discovery is to find a hero within oneself that will choose life over death; and fight for hope through despair to possess the will to live.”― Ellen J. Barrier
People who have fought against the darkness of an evil force filled with mental anguish, hate, and suicidal thoughts and voices of evil, telling them to kill themselves and take the lives of others, won when they searched for hope. Instead, they persevered and snatched their life from within that dark world, and became respectful citizens living in society and making a difference in the lives of others, who they themselves were once like, have saved the lives of many others, by telling their stories. They are among the greatest heroes.
“Evil imaginations causes harm to others.
Such things do not dwell in the mind of a righteous person.”
― Ellen J. Barrier
Goodreads quotes @ https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/21899691-ellen-barrier?page=4
True Love is steadfast and supportive, one that is never failing, a love that is willing to forgive, a love that never fears. It is a Love that is pure; and will always be clear. It is guaranteed to keep passion in a relationship, because it possesses the souls and the hearts of two people and will not depart.
When a challenge confronts the relationship; True Love will defend its position in the hearts of two people that beats as one. The power of True Love cannot be broken. The relationship will never be open.
Broken hearts mends slowly; while a few never mends. And because of broken hearts, many relationships end. Not True Love, because it defends the hearts of two people who will never be apart. True Love never breaks a heart.

At 5:00 a.m., I was awakened by a horrible storm. Tornadoes were said to be wrapped in rain and air traffic was halted. People were reportedly stranded in airports. The streets and highways were not suitable for traffic, according to a weather report.
My plans for my trip would take a miracle for me to get to my destination.
This trip is one of importance; it is our annual extravaganza. I am the sponsor and speaker. This is a 4 day event of fun and excitement: Fashion & Talent show, Musical, Items for sale, door prizes, Games, and lots of food and drinks.
Today is Thursday. My plans were to leave at 5:00 a. m. I have several vans packed with equipment and other things needed for this event that is scheduled in the great state of Texas! My family is asking, “Shall we start unpacking?” They believe it is hopeless. “The storms are not going to allow us to travel.”
I am not ready to give up. So, my decision was to wait until 8:00 a. m., and see if it is possible for us to leave. While we are waiting I am praying for a miracle. The rain stopped completely at 9:00 a.m., the weather report informed of scattered thundershowers ahead.
We left Kansas at 10:00 a.m. There were some lightning and thunderstorms along our journey. We arrived in Texas in the very late evening; thankful to God for a safe trip, a nice hotel and good Texas food to eat before retiring for the night, and looking forward to a great event with family and friends, and meeting lots of new people and old friends.
My Speech: The Storms of Life
On the first night of this event, I opened with a prayer and testimony. Everyone has a story to tell. I want to hear their stories. Many of their stories were very sad ones. My purpose is to listen, and to determine how best I can help each person. After listening to their stories, I chose to speak about The Storms of Life.
Storms will come and there is nothing we can do to prevent them. However, we can pray and patiently wait for God to get us safely through the storms. Just as the weather related storms cause disasters and harm and will halt our plans. So does the things that occur in our lives; such things as sickness, accidents, loss of financial income, divorce, problems in relationships, family problems and other reasons for unhappiness. We have a choice; give up or endure.
Hope comes from prayer. It gives us strength to endure and to persevere.
“He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increase strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
With wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Isaiah 40: 29-31 (King James Bible)
