The Love Walk orchestrated by @titusoneilwwe and @davebautista was exactly what the Tampa Bay community needed. Hundreds of people gathered as one body (with #masks of course) unified in hope and love, and peacefully walked through downtown Tampa and crossed the Fortune Taylor Bridge to Julian B. Lane Park to unveil the love wall mural. The @cityoftampa named the bridge after Fortune Taylor, a freed slave who had amassed more than 30 acres near downtown Tampa after the Civil War.

Why continually “Nitpicking” can damage your Marriage 💯
When you live in the intimacy of marriage, personality flaws or bad habits of your husband can get revealed—often much to your annoyance. It's something couples have to deal with when they enter a relationship or get married and it can lead to nitpicking.
Though this kind of fussy fault-finding usually involves petty, inconsequential issues or tasks, if done on a regular basis, the ramifications to your union can be serious—ultimately tearing away at the bond in your relationship.
Marriage brings together two people who most likely have different habits and personalities. It can be easy to pick apart aspects of your husband that you dislike or don't agree with. However, this type of criticism does nothing to help the foundation of your relationship.
When you point out what one another has or hasn't done or how your spouse said or did something wrong, you may be belittling, embarrassing, and demeaning your husband. You're also side-handedly saying that you want the him to change and that he isn't good enough.
Essentially, nitpicking can be a sign that you don't fully respect your mate.
Even if this isn't your intention, it can be received this way. Though it can start small, especially at first, it can be a red flag in your marriage. If you continue to nitpick at your husband, a growing resentment can create a wall between the two of you.

Topic: Walking in Love
Text: 2 Timothy 3:16, James 1:21-25 and 1 Corinthians 13:1-7
Constant forgiving and sacrificial love does not make believers weaklings. Rather, it is a show of strength.
That Jesus washed the feet of the disciples didn't make Him an inch less Jesus, He remained Himself.
Loving like God is not being weak as the world system may portray. It is strength.
It is through walking in love that we can truly be seen as true disciples of Christ.
What then is love?
• Love endures long and is patient and kind.
• Love is never envious or boils over with jealousy or envy. If you really love someone, you will never have problem with the person succeeding.
• Love is not boastful or vain glorious and does not display itself haughty.
• Love is not conceited that is arrogant and inflated with pride
• Love is not rude. It does not act unmannerly.
• Love does not act unbecomingly.
• Love does not insist on it's own rights or it's own way for it is not self-seeking.
• Love is not Touchy or irritating. It is not fretful neither is it resentful.
• Love takes no account of the evil done to it. It pays no attention to suffered wrong.
• Love does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness. It pursues right and truth.
• Love Hope's are faceless. It endures under every circumstances and it endures everything without weakening. #wicm#christchurch#christchurchlagos#love#lovewalk

What to Do About Financial Infidelity in Your Marriage 💯
👉🏾 Don't bury your head in the sand. It's time to have a difficult and serious talk about your finances with your husband.
👉🏾 Tell your husband about any feelings you have about lying or being lied to about your finances. Your concerns, guilt, anger, panic, sense of being betrayed, embarrassment, helplessness, etc. You need to be heard by your husband.
👉🏾 If you are the cheater, admit you made a mistake, stop lying about your finances. Make a decision to be honest, open, and to keep your promises. Accept your responsibility for bringing financial infidelity into your marriage. And sincerely apologize.
👉🏾 Be realistic about what can and can't be done to salvage your financial situation.
👉🏾 Set up separate checking accounts along with a joint account.
👉🏾 Decide together how much you can each deposit in the personal accounts and a joint account. It is important that you both agree that those funds are yours individually to do with what you want.
👉🏾 Have a weekly discussion about the state of your finances. It doesn't have to be long, but make time to check on your accounts together and talk about upcoming bills, issues, goals, hopes, etc.
👉🏾 If these suggestions don't help, seek financial and/or marriage counseling.
Lying, hiding or being secretive about money is a big marriage "no-no." If there is a problem in regard to this, it is time to fix it with respect and integrity.
