i agree with Anthony on this one. i've found the more transparent i am with men, the more apt they are to share their real issues with me. That's what we try to promote in our small groups at church.

Kudos to whomever is responsible for its selection. Have a great day in the Lord!

Wow! This word speaks to me. The words put it into context as I see it now. I can use this word to bring light to something that was missing in a situation of mine. Thanks again M.O.I. I pray for your continued use in and around the world, I will do my part and share Godly characteristics in what I learn in my daily walk. Thanks for charging the encouraging words daily. Anthony
