    I have learned to praise the Creator in each and everyone.  I do believe everyone is redeemable, good at their core- perhaps it is just that they have forgotten or have never known love without strings.  Compassion is the key, kindness the ointment- love without rules, religion or comfort zones.  How could anyone truly know God if it weren't through our reaching out and loving them- we are his hands, his heart, his touch.  I praise God by praising my brothers and my sisters.

      "Above all, love one another."  Brother Jesus's blanket rule. 

    To see beauty in the ugly faces is the hardest thing I do- but to look upon hate, despair, sadness and sorrow and reflect to the wearer of those masks a goodness, true beauty- it is though a light, a beaming light has been finally turned on in the darkest room.  Love never fails, love wins.  Period.

    Take care-
