TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION

I can relate to the following. Been dealing with this for many, many years as I speak truth to power. I been lied on, talked about and misunderstood but Grace has kept me.

The following words ain’t nothing but the truth.

When a well-intended exposition that is biblically based and scriptural sound or is just plain ole common sense based upon the facts is misinterpreted and taken as a personal attack or throwing shade (whatever that means), it can produce anger, division, strife, and an unwarranted attack on another person’s character particularly by means of subliminal messages.

Get this! Although truth doesn’t change based upon another person’s misinterpretation of what is said or written, yet their misconception of truth greatly affects their attitude and behavior towards others needlessly.

Here it is! When another person’s FEELINGS doesn’t align with TRUTH, chances are their actions in response to the TRUTH will be erroneous, imprudent, and unwise which is indicative of CONVICTION. The good news is TRUTH doesn’t change based upon one’s interpretation of it or their reaction/response to it. It never has and it never will. Therefore, never water down what you share to appease other but proclaim it, promote it and publish it without compromise and unapologetically.

So back to what I do daily fighting the good fight for the least of them.

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), already under fire for comments made on abortion earlier this week, is under increased scrutiny after it was revealed his medical school yearbook page features racist images.

The photos inside Eastern Virginia Medical School’s 1984 yearbook show a person in a Ku Klux Klan outfit and another in blackface. On Friday night, Northam admitted in a statement that he was one of the two people pictured, but didn’t say whether he was in the KKK robe or blackface. (Read more)

People Showing Their True Colors

🗣I don’t usually post on the matter but when it comes to Politics people can really show their true colors. Whether it be racist, hatred, bigot, etc. Now I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion because I have several and I will voice them at anytime. I love all people whether you are Hispanic, Asian, Caucasian, or African-American because with a open wound we’ll all bleed the same no one is better than the other. As long as you respect my race and I, I will do the same. But it takes only one time for you to show me who you really are no matter your skin color and I can no longer deal. Times have really changed and I’m thankful for my ancestors and the people who fought so hard for me and mines to be able to live today. But I’ll be damned if Politics ain’t showed me who’s for me and who’s against me. #ThisIsNotUpForDebate

Bill Ellis Barbecue closes its doors – Wilson Times

Bill Ellis Barbecue closed Wednesday after nearly 56 years of serving Wilsonians and visitors alike.

“It is with much regret that we have reached a decision to close Bill’s Barbecue,” Tanya Neville said in a written statement. “Against all obstacles, we fought the good fight, but realized it’s time.”

His widow, Tracy Ellis, was left in charge of the operations and the summer after Bill passed, she brought in Chris Earp to lead the restaurant operations. (Read more)
