1. I receive 'stuff' in my spirit.

Funny, usually when I'm near h2o. The laundry room or the kitchen sink.

Last evening this 'very' phrase came to me!

I take it as a message of expectation. Not one of 'fear'.

America appears to be in reverse. Backwards. Standing strong for the ideals that have kept the way is not easy, but necessary.

To all my sisters and brothers: strength, wisdom and well-being.

3. FYI he also wrote several novels under his real name Oliver Bleek. They are just as good.

He was the best.
And FYI, FOOLS is one of his best, all time.
Let me know what you think of it.
