I can so relate to deleting the Facebook posts. I didn’t get them all, not even possible, but they are buried behind so many other less offensive ones now. You can surely find them if you look but they are not the church, just the best the Lord had to work with for now. Tells you how hard up He must be if I am the best He has. Is it possible that the entire first and second string are out on injured reserve, must be try because I am in the game.
