Can We Agree For A West Pullman "Security & Shade" Community?!

Spiritually the west is associated with security & shade!
There are major security & SHADY issues dominating our neighborhoods;along with gloom,as if a vail of doubtful honesty!
That can be CHANGED,by The Right Spirit,to a distinguishing retreat & shield
of protection(=Psalm 91!)!
Being armed with the LIGHT of this awarness in such knowledge can fuel the change!
If only a few with the same spirit-mind of FAITH & vision will build such a hedge TOGETHER,
Security & Shade will make our WEST better!
Contact me for our connecting consistantly!
