Maya Angelou

Dear Maya Angelou, I pray you read this letter from your home in heaven. I wanted to say thank-you for the time that you spent on earth fighting for civil rights, teaching, advocating and speaking for those whom voice was not heard; through poetry, dance, singing and acting.

In my head I tell myself that I don’t want to be that individual that prays when things are only wrong and to not be grateful for the good. Prayers isn’t a ritual and there is no right way to go about it, it’s a simple conversation from the heart. I recently lost my job. I’m still not over it. Yes, yes I did pray to God for another job; who wouldn’t? However I … Continue reading Christian Reflection
