Do Not Be Afraid

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. —Luke 2:6-7

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” -Luke 2:10

I am going take a break from posting for a few days…will take a little r&r and spend time with loved ones over Christmas. Despite the challenges we face in life, the bible reminds us 365 times to “fear not”. Merry Christmas.

  2. You have to know Mark, that great minds are supporting you from beyond the great divide, including Angels❣️ I think our guiding you, giving strength to you in this battle between light and darkness✨ I have a lot more confidence in the cause of good because of the options you’re taking in the concrete in real world in the legal arena. I, for one, will continue to support you financially. I am not afraid and I am preparing myself for all their efforts to undermine our safety & well being.
