8th Day

We are all different. But, we are all the same. If you are a human , you are connected to ever other human being alive. We all go to the bathroom, we all have to bathe, we all have to eat. We have families, we have problems. I believe the biggest weapon that the devil uses against people is to produce prejudice against one another.

Because beneath the color we are the same. My Mother is 1/2 Cherokee, and I have nieces and nephews that are bi-racial. But the beautiful thing is that God made us each so unique. If we can just look beyond the color of one anothers's skin and see inside the heart of our brothers and sisters we will be accomplishing so very much. We are the pieces of each other's puzzle. ~nita~

Dear Nita,
We are all one. We are connected.
Diversity is the beauty, it is what is healthy.
Respect for one another will bring peace and wholeness. It is what is holy.

My first true love was Cherokee Indian
What great people they are
He was killed in a freak accident in 1983
Predudice is unnecessary since we are all are the same but different
God Bless You

I have nieces and nephews that are half black and my kids call their cousins "chocolate cousins". They love their chocolate cousins to bits!!!

Dear Nita, thank you so much for your post. I totally agree with you ! I have grandchildren who are bi-racial. This still isn't so easily excepted in the south but I don't let the feeble thoughts of the close minded steal my joy ! This very thought has been pondering in my mind this past week about how different we all are yet the same. We are all so precious in the sight of God ! I also have a grandson , 10 months, who is half hispanic. I count it a blessing to explore other cultures within our own family. I don't think our children even see color anymore . They just see the heart as you say and love one another deeply.
Have a blessed Lord's Day ! Shelley
