Always remembering that when they're all mixed together they will work for the good.

WOW. The words are powerful and true. This is especially a need in todays world. On the surface things seem ok, but we as brothers and sisters need to allow the will of God to work in our lives. Love one another. Know who you belong too, not this world but God. Thank you M.O.I. Anthony
