  1. This would be against the law in America. We are forbidden to say “God bless you.” or mention our Lord in military cemetaries. However, witches may now have pentagons on their gravestones.

    I am glad to see that people somewhere in the world are allowed to experience His Passion. They are truly blessed to be free in their expression of their love for Christ Jesus.

  5. When you are centered in oneness, your path becomes clear and

    your life flows in peace and harmony. When you are not centered, then the mind becomes confused in

    endless thoughts and choices and the many potential paths of action. – Lord Krishna
