I am a laid-back person, but I am strong in my beliefs. I do not enjoy other people telling me how to believe or implying that everyone should be the exact same in their thinking. Christ died and rose again to take away away our sins and iniquities, not our minds, and he knitted us together in our mother's womb to make a difference in our world. I love people and God, and I can't wait to reach Heaven!
I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Genesis 29:31 - When the LORD saw that Leah washated [unloved], he opened her womb...
Now we need to remember that Leah and Rachel were part of a larger plan in order to produce the twelve tribes of Israel and eventually Christ. Despite the pain that both Leah and Rachel experienced having to share Jacob, there was an end. They could not see it, perhaps, but we could, and God could. And even though they were tricked, and deceived, and Leah was unwanted, God heard them. Even in the midst of bringing about a greater plan of salvation for humanity, God heard Leah's pain and took away her humiliation by giving her sons. He did not leave her a victim of her culture. He took her out of it and gave her joy. He healed her by giving her sons. Her sons would include the founder of the lineage of Israel's priests, including Moses, and Judah, from whose line Christ came.
