Your Courage to be Yourself
Shalom, Lori, I deeply appreciate your courage to be who you naturally are, and to voice your passion to live and speak and act with God's presence always near and within you. Thank you for your encouragement and faith. I also hope that you are generous with our non-human relations, and that you give to environmental groups working to save our last forests. The whole Earth is the Garden of Eden, and we are the stewards. The Earth is God's gift to us. I hope you bring this subject up in future videomessages. Thank you for your being. God continue to bless you and your family. Blessed be and Shalom, Lori Sweet
