1/4/2024
They’re not scary when you use even a little of the wisdom and discernment your Creator is willing to give you. I’m talking about health headlines.

Sacred geometry and smoke and mirrored imagery

Fires burn down beautiful places. Volcanoes erupt and destroy communities. Hurricanes blast entire cities. Tornadoes uproot even the heartiest of trees.

Abortion ban is certainly NOT in the can

8/14/2023
I wonder how many teenagers realize they’re walking, ticking timebombs.
