I was thumbing through old entries of revelation the Lord had opened my eyes to as I read His word. Eagerly, I had been jotting down on looseleaf since January of this year and realized this could be my Kingdom work. I'm unburying "My Mina" My Talent for my greatest desire is to hear "Well, done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of thy Lord."

And so here is my humble offerings.

May God bless you, encourage you, and give you peace.
