Trust Me, You Don’t Want To Lose Someone You Love In This Crisis.

I don’t often pull the “you never know if today may be the last day for someone you love” card.

But I’m going to do it now.

Trust me, you don’t want to be the one who brought it home to your mama, your daddy, your spouse or your child.

    1. Thank you. I am always a little hesitant to take on current events. But those of us who know the devastation death leaves behind are in a position to hopefully caution those who don’t. I would rather spare them our “wisdom”. May the Lord keep you and yours safe as well. ❤
