In 1969, I noticed students carrying Bibles around my Jr. High school. These were students I knew were “Hippies, Hoods & Stoners.” I remember being curious and affected by their transformations. 1/5 Image
One girl in particular I watched transform even in the face of persecution and rejection. By the time I was in high school, I was so fascinated by her that I wrote an English paper about what she had that I didn’t have. 2/5
I knew it was God, but I’d never seen a Christian glow like her. When I did receive Jesus on the floor of my bedroom at 19 years old she was the first person I told! 3/5

#Flashbackfriday to last week when I sat beside former president Olusegun Obasanjo on the plane and we had a lengthy discussion.

Of course, I asked him tough questions and he answered them straight, with no sugar coating.

A #Thread
Remember I posted this morning about how you can pray for anything? As soon as I saw President Obasanjo at the airport, I asked God to allow me to speak with him, I went further to pray that I’d be sitting beside him.

As we boarded the flight,
I found that I wasn’t seated beside him, still I asked the white guy beside him if he’d like to swap seats with me, he agreed without fuss.

I knelt beside president Obasanjo as a sign of greeting, I couldn’t see his lips move behind the mask, but I saw his eyes smile.

This hasn’t aged well.

The double standard and unmitigated hypocrisy beggars belief.

No buildings were 🔥 burned.
No policemen 👮🏻‍♂️ were killed.
No looting occurred.

Police opened the doors ffs!😲

Remember, America…

The same people blathering on about #Insurrection are the same ones who tried for FOUR years to convince you that #RussianCollusion was real and #BLM & #Antifa were ‘peacefully’ protesting in 2020.

Lest we forget…

Joshua Hawley is not sure whether women who have hysterectomies are still women.

I’ve seen many pundits eye-roll at his comments—but we need to pay more attention to why he defined a woman specifically as “a mother.”

🧵 Image
A full decade ago, Joshua wrote down his vision for this country.

You can read it all here:…
He believes that American "[g]overnment serves Christ’s kingdom rule; this is its purpose. And Christians’ purpose in politics should be to advance the kingdom of God—to make it more real, more tangible, more present. Or should I say, to immanentize the eschaton."

"By the 1860s, there were lots of things around here for settlers to fight- illness, insects, hardship, Comanche Indians, and starting in 1861, the Yankees." (Images of America: Southlake by Connie Cooley and the Southlake Historical Society) Image

#FBF 🧵: Found my old "Letter to the Editor" submission which was published (heavily edited) in the now defunct Southlake Times. Dated September 8, 2009. #flashbackfriday @Carrollisd #Southlake
@Carrollisd I wrote this piece after learning @Carrollisd would not allow teachers to show @BarackObama's address to students during class. Parents had to remove them from school if they wanted their children to watch it.
@Carrollisd @BarackObama "This decision is less about time constraints and more about the collective closed-mindedness of a community. It is about the fear of exposing children to different ideals than they have heard at home-- that they might actually form opinions according to their own free will."

How about a #FlashbackFriday, also a #FluorideFriday #FluorideFact. Dr Dean did his level best to slow the bandwagon down, to no avail. A very specific, small population mentioned.
That paper is the cornerstone of the theory that adding #fluorine to our diet using our water prevents tooth decay.
The stone is probably fluorite...
Speaking of stone, and #fluoridation, and putting things on pedestals, DYK?

Sorry state of affairs. -|- "Like so many of England’s children today, most if not all will need extracting because of extensive decay. The prospect for the second teeth is not good."
Mustn't be so hard on themselves, 'disgrace' is bit much. After all, this is representative of the facts, such as they are. -|- "This is in spite of the fact that dental decay, or caries, is virtually entirely preventable. It makes the situation a disgrace to our modern society."
Even though the solution is known, the fact it is not being strongly advocated is bothersome. Neglectful even. -|- "The state of dentition there shocked me, especially the state of children’s dentition. It was not the deprivation that caused this; ..."

This was my old truck. 🥲

In 2017, I donated it to @freestore15104 it’s saved 1000’s + 1000’s of pounds of food, merchandise, furniture for those they serve.

At 189,435 miles she gave all that she had to give. 😇💀

If you’re able, their new truck🙏🏻👇…
The new truck is a Ford 2012 with an 8ft bed that would have a long, long life and help feed, clothe and resource local families for a long, long time.

100% of any funds generously donated go to its purchase.

Thank you. 😄
This truck is used multiple times a week for food rescues from Trader Joe’s, Costco, WholeFoods etc.

All of the 1st quality food and personal care items are given at no cost -ever- to families in need.

Flashback Friday.

Coronavirus 2020
...a love story for people who like to boil bunnies but can’t because fur is murder.

March 2020. My first mask. Awww.
Next time say temporary. Always say temporary unless the new reality includes the return of Prince, George Michael, Leonard Cohen and Bowie. They held the fabric of the universe together.
Aww. See it? Our first carrot and stick.

Two weeks to flatten the curve? Nope. Stop the spread. We just didn’t think they’d be...well...power hungry dicks.

It’s funny because we’re so dumb but we put in charge that many Smeegles even dumber than us.

When my label told me i would be singing with @beyonce as the first act of the show Divas, I said “I don't dance." They know I don't dance, right?” My label assured me, there would be no dancing.
I showed up for the first rehearsal and the producer greeted me saying “lets dance!” Folk singers don't dance. As a child I had a recurring nightmare that was basically this exact scenario. Now here I was with the legendary and amazing Beyoncé, and I had no guitar to protect me.
That and my dyslexia and there was no way I’d remember the choreography. How did it work out? It was all due to Beyoncé. She kept simplifying choreography until I could get it. She stayed after our slotted rehearsal time to work with me.
