Good RED Friday Colonel.


Leaders who focus on themselves aren't much of a leader.


Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. People have many different outlooks and opinions of themselves, but I think many forget to consider how God sees you. Find your identity In Christ and become a better you. Have a blessed day today and always.

Taken from:
