MY WORK, BY S. ANGELA BYNUM
I want people to use my work to express their feelings to people who are special to them, while those cherished people are still alive.
I want people to use my inspirational work to encourage, inspire, strengthen, and uplift themselves and others when they are faced wih challenges.
Let it be that Voice Crying in the Wilderness:
YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
GOD IS WITH YOU.
YOU CAN MAKE IT.
