We are all professionals at faking our way through life. We smile when we wanna cry or scream or just be.... unentertaining to the individuals that surround us. Sometimes our attemps of good are taken as evil. Sometimes our kindness is swallowed up by the rage that drowns us. But still.... We smile.
Want peace? Lasting and true peace does not come from a bath or money or vacation, it only comes from drawing near to God. He is peace. His presence in your life is peace ❤ let Him in... #hope#love#faith#adoption#fostercare

Since 2010, The White House administration has declared January for the prevention of human trafficking.
Traffickers are looking for someone who will go with them without a fight whether that's a child or someone in a desperate situation in their life. And the less stable someone's life is, the higher the probability that they'll agree to go with someone under false pretenses such as the promise of a job or relationship.
That's why it's so important we continue to empower people around the world and create jobs so they can lift themselves out of poverty and decrease their risk of being trafficked. Job creation and empowering women is at the heart of Jesus' Economy. #endhumantrafficking#endslavery#justice#fairttrade#hope#brightfuture

Very good movie that depicts addiction, enabling addiction, and recovery.
Also how God worked a miracle in her life.
While Player X was getting what he thought was the last laugh, she ended up getting the actual last laugh at the end of the film.
We are addicted to something or someone. Whether it be food, alcohol, sex, gambling, gardening, shopping, controlling others, manipulating others, possessing others, etc... Never underestimate the power of addiction.
The quest to become a better version of yourself often feels like a roller coaster ride. It’s hard. And it’s usually so uneven. You can end in failure. But life is a journey, not a marathon, so you always have another opportunity to restart and improve. 💯 @millionaire_mentor#millionaireworkethic
this is a beautiful #mantaray in the #ocean. Mantaray are the largest rays and are closely related to sharks. These harmless #rays have a short tail and no stinging spine. They are very acrobatic; they can even leap from the water.
Despite it's large size, the relatively docile nature of the manta ray means that it is actually preyed upon by a number of large marine predators. Large species of shark such as the great white shark, killer whales and also humans are known to hunt the manta ray.
#mantas eat microscopic plankton, small fish, and tiny crustaceans. They funnel the food into their mouth while they swim, using two large, flap-like cephalic lobes which extend forward from the eyes.
There 5 manta's swimming surround me. unfortunately i forgot to change the timelapse mode before to go to #freedive and #filming their #dancing .. still #thankful to meet them in their #natur e #habitat ..
#hope to meet them again
One year. I am wearing the the hat I knitted. The Gent is wearing his. The outrage this past year has made each day a struggle. Seeing soon-to-be voters and all those who will follow them has given me the hope that I need.
