I Have Always Loved People

One of the main reasons I became a pastor was because of the fact that I have always loved people. I was much more conservative than I was now. Some would even say that I love people more than God but this simply is not true. For those who did not read any of my stories; my dear niece committed suicide on June 3, 2010. I think I put this date wrong on another post.  

My niece Candy not her real name taught me something please accept people for who they are and not for who they are not. She wanted to be a lesbian and with my religious background it would not fit at that time. But today I have a new way of looking at things. I look at what we can gain from one another. Lord knows I am not perfect and struggle with flesh issues just like you do but together we can help each other.  We can begin by loving ourselves and each other. We cannot love another person if we are not first loving ourselves. 

I have many fans and friends and the list keeps  growing. People have been kind here to me and I seek to understand what you are going through. Some of our struggles are how we are raised or other experiences we have gone through. I am not here to judge your experiences but to use them to grow and to help you grow. But love is always the common denominator. Some here are just wanting to learn to be better people and to enhance their marriages and families. Some here are for dating and to share experiences that most of us would rather not experience. But I really feel there is good in all people, for some it is just a little harder to find.  I will not turn away anyone who wants to be my friend!
