Brothel visit # 2 pics

I really do want to say thank you so much for reading and supporting and encouraging through all of this. All the kind words and prayers are so valuable to me! I am grateful for YOU. Now photos for you..

What's the only place to stop for lunch? Your local gas station/bank/grocery store/restaurant:


Rachel is learning her new toy!

Stopping to play along the way



The little town itself:



Today I received an email with an article suggesting cheating could save your marriage. Wow. Arranged sleeping around with rules? No thank you.
I also read an article about two 16 year old girls who were prostituting girls out that they had recruited from their high school. They were suggesting it was better than with some pimp who would beat them up. I don't think I knew what prostitution was when I was 16, let alone that I could prostitute others. The things I hear from high schoolers I know and stories like this break my heart. Where do they learn this? What makes them do things I never know existed or that I could access? I mean, I get it, everything is accessible, all the cool kids are doing it, etc. I know things are more available and prevalent today than even 10 years ago, but it is sad none the less. I am not sure where this came from.. random ramblings from within I guess!

So, on a positive note:
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith
goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge,
self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to
perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly
kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you
possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will
keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your
knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:5-8

EVERY EFFORT. Are we making every effort in our lives?
