I am a 45 yr old Associate Pastor. I am white when I first get out of the shower, but that doesn't last long. I have a debilitating disease, but I love to DO stuff. I am outside as much as possible. I love freely, defend friends, and hope for a better tomorrow while working for a brighter today. I believe in fairy tales. I love God's Creations.
