Stone in love with you.

I followed a story once where someone would collect heart shaped rocks and I loved it. After a 2 day silent retreat of listening to how much God loved me, I finally went outside. With only a few minutes to spare before I needed to catch my ferry, surrounded by pebbles on the Vashon Island shore, I found this perfect heart ♥️ shaped stone. Then and now, I’m reminded that true love is present. It’s an action that delights and shows up when you need to see it most. Especially when you need a reminder of just how special you are to God! Consider yourself reminded!

Black Friends. How many of us have them?

75% Of White people do not have Black friends.

81% of White Evangelicals voted for the current president.

The majority of Black People who did not vote for the current president saw a campaign of racism and continue to wonder “what were White people thinking?”

Many White people are uncomfortable talking about race. When they hear of NFL players kneeling in protest against systemic racism, they say “what are Black people thinking?” In their hearts they feel colorblind. Being called racist is the greatest offense. They are certain they are not racist and do not condone racism.

Their other White friends have to confirm this because…….

75% Of White People do not have Black friends.
