    What a great message and a great reminder of the fact that we can touch lives – good and bad – without even knowing it. Thank you for this and all of your messages!

  3. Wow! What a fantastic reminder of how our actions influence others. It’s also an unspoken challenge to be the best you can be because someone is always “looking.”

  4. It is so true, .. Littles see alot, yet say little. God see a lot yet still Loves us unconditional. We walk away, yet he is patience and waits for us to come back. And, we do, he still Loves us the same if not more. Because, know us before, now,and forever. He crys when we cry, and never stops loving us more and more.

    I once know a Man, that fell five floor. They said the Man would surely die. He didn’t! They said the Man would never walk, yet he did! He walks today only by and through the Grace of God. We all fall shot of our mark, yet HE is in control. HE is my God andd I am the man. Praise God for I live to walk another day.

  5. Such a powerful message, sometimes we undergo trials and tribulations and what always comes into our minds is that God isn’t watching, but He is. I thank you Jesus Christ as today am a better man.
