He was a proud man, a leader in every sense of the word. He wore the burdens of every generation before him; praying for the day when the load would lift, even alittle.
As nights became days, and the sun’s unmerciful rays called him back to the field.. He prayed, that the load would lift, even a little. Every torn that pricked his skin, every blister that formed upon his arms, the labor was far too much, for even a proud man.
The sun moved past twelve, the sun dial said so. He prayed his burden would lift, even alittle. The Good Lord was his saving Grace.. This his momma taught him… “You just gotta keep on doing what the Master’s say!” She would mind him. His momma had so much wisdom.
Then, one day, the most unusual thing happened. He was instructed to grab his things, and flee. There were wars inside the walls of the grand house… And His people risked the chance to gain freedom.
This statue is Mr Gregor, the bravest and most honorable man from Zumberhill Plantation. The missing parts of his body are said to be pieces he left in all that he touched… While the rest were the bare minimum of necessities, in his bag. He never minded giving so much of himself, for the Good Lord promised Streets of Gold… So he prayed, and prayed, for the lighter load.

Fun fact about me: I can’t STAND my feet wet! I can barely stand a bath or shower. When it comes to set sand, wet floors, public splash pads, nope…. I can’t handle it. Additionally, my legs were one of my favorite parts of my body.. until I had kids.
SO… let’s find some pretty, comfortable, dry legs and feet:

I was on TikTok today; and, I came across one particular video that sounded familiar. It was.. Because it was as if I had posted it, except from the male perspective. It referenced a man with a big heart… And how such a heart will contain BIG emotions… all of them will be big.
I didn’t hesitate to share the gift of knowledge with him. I mentioned what I understand was this type of person, and encouraged him to Google.
In actuality, I feel we’re all messangers. Nearly everything is for the purpose of your testimony. What you face, how you overcome, changes you make, ways you heal… It’s all for your story to make an impact on another life… And it will… If you share it.
….. And when you’re done writing your story…. And your book is complete, will people gather around and miss you? Will your children read at your funeral? (Well, you’ll be gone BUT… here’s hypothetically speaking!)
Lisa Marie Presley passed away the exact same way as her father. She’s been laid to rest in Graceland, beside her son, and not far from Elvis. This family has a legacy that’s timeless… One of imperfect people who lived and loved in the spotlight of the Press.
OK well, time to play a game with my Calandra. Have a wonderful evening!
