Lord, just as there are two sides to every coin I believe people have two sides as well. I do not believe people are inherently good or bad but rather the decisions we make minute to minute either feed our dark sides or our light sides. You’ve seen me at my worst and at my best and the fact that you still love me unconditionally is everything to me. Help me to feed my light side with your word so when the pressure is on end I’m faced with adversity i will be sufficiently prepared. #prayerpause

Lord, this news story made me so sick I almost wasn’t able to post it. The only reason I did was because an innocent child was murdered and we need to speak up and protect our children. This hot mess of a person killed his girlfriend’s three year old daughter because she painted over a picture of him. Let that sink in for a moment. I just finished reading about the Colorado man who faked his wife and children’s missing person report after he had already killed all three of them. Lord, I know vengeance is yours but it’s really hard not to hate these men. Your will be done and I pray for r families who have suffered immeasurable losses. #prayerpause
Lord, with American politics dominating the news media it’s easy to forget we are not the only country on the planet. I want to ask you to help save and reduce the hundreds of thousands of individuals and family affected by this tragic event. Protect them as they put their lives back together and give them aid. When we focus on something greater than ourselves we can see we are all valuable parts of this life and worldwide we share much more in common with other countries. #prayerpause
Lord, help this man out of the terrible situation he’s gotten into. Was he fired from his OSU assistant job? Yes. Did he take an inappropriate photo or two at an inopportune time? Yes. Did he take pictures of him having relations with an OSU staffer? Yes. All things considered, I don’t think this is the worst thing that has happened in the White House this year. #prayerpause
Lord, I have never seen a sycophant as eerily loyal as Paris. I’ll start by saying I respect his right to hold his views and express himself. I watched an interview recently where he states Trump is completely justified revoking security clearances and he hopes more will happen. He then proceeded to argue in his typical “I’m the victim” fashion and accused Philip Mudd of keeping his clearance just to make money. Philip had absolutely had no time for that and he read Paris the riot act which I support. Paris tends to make outrageous claims and acts like people are crazy for disagreeing. I see you Paris, lots of people see you. #prayerpause
Lord, I pray that you will reveal what is true and what is false in the coming months. Emotions run high during times of political unrest but I pray you allow us to sift past that and really take a good look at what’s happening right in front of us. I unfortunately feel like I can no longer trust our nation’s leader and if it wasn’t for the hard-working people in government that we never hear about I’d be worried. We hear a ton about people in leadership roles doing this or that but what I love about America is the fact that underneath all the lies and accusations there are many savvy people who just want to go to work and make this country better. I am trying to work on not jumping to conclusions myself and I pray my future discussions will focus on facts and never attacks. #prayerpause

This is Melvin. He lives in an abandoned wash near the freeway, but he was quick to invite me up to the place he called home, as if I was a close friend. He was grateful that I would bring him food, & he said that he could tell I was on a mission to help people. He told me that his life’s mission was to get his sister off drugs (having overcome addiction himself), and that he wants to paint murals that promote honesty (Check out his tag in the second photo). It’s people like Melvin that inspire me to live life, & moments like this are what make me believe that one day we will reach a point as humans where we can truly live together. You can help Melvin & many others in similar situations by joining the LOV Movement. Help out, donate, & spread the word. ❤️ #LOVmovement
Lord, I honestly regret clicking on the link that showed me what Homer Simpson would look like as a human. Please, I beg you, do not look at Miguel Vasquez’s depiction of Homer Simpson in real life if you want to sleep. Miguel is super talented but this image is best seen in the safe light of day. #prayerpause
Sea Shepherd has been fighting for the sharks on every front: - Removing deadly, illegal fishing gear from oceans around the world, rescuing sharks from nets whenever possible
- Fighting the #shark mitigation policies in #Australia that hurt not only sharks but other endangered species caught in nets (Operation Apex Harmony)
- Assisting in the control, monitoring and arrest of commercial fishing vessels operating illegally in #Africa and SE Asia, often with large populations of sharks killed either on purpose (for their fins or liver) or as accidental by-catch (included undocumented endangered species of sharks) (Operations Albacore, Sola Stella, Jodari, Apex Harmony – Timor Leste)
- Exposing the illegal shipping trade of shark fins in Hong Kong (Operation Apex Harmony)
