What Does Free Look Like On You?

Today I claim my freedom and

move forward in my life.  ACIM

What does free look like on you?

When I was living in Gulu.Northern Uganda just close to the border of South Sudan one of the women asked me

What does free look like on you? I smiled. She took that as a cue to repeat the question.slowly

What.does.free.look.like.on.you?

I responded. But I’m free!

So this is what your free looks like Madam Akosua? People pleasing ,playing safe & being afraid to BE?

That does not honor your ancestors or you.

You were born.you did not fight for it. With the opportunity & ability to do anything. Trust.honor & respect that.

What does free look like on you?

May I not forget today the importance of the ground on which I stand

 

Peace
