“Energy is neither created nor destroyed. It just changes shape.”
Sheri Reynolds

“Your truth may not look like mine, but that is not what matters. What matters is this: You can look at a scar and see hurt, or you can look at a scar and see healing.”
Sheri Reynolds, A Gracious Plenty

“There's only so much room in one heart. You can fill it up with love or you can fill it with resentment. But every bit of resentment you hold takes space away from the love. And the resentment don't do no good noway, but look what love can do.”
Sheri Reynolds, The Rapture of Canaan

Sheri Reynolds Thank you so much! Yes, I'm finally here -- except I can't figure out how I got friends. But I'm very glad for them. I just hope I didn't spam the whole world by accident when I joined up. Still learning how this all works...
