How much we take for granted...I don't even walk to the supermarket, and if I did, I don't have to fear for my safety. Some of these souls have walked across entire countries. Had you been born under different circumstances, the 45th person from the left could have been you.
"There's so much more to life than a career, Time and talent can be used for other purposes rather than gaining attention. Music is an amazing, timeless, intangible gift, Channeling God's power to heal, comfort, inspire and challenge, when used in this way it becomes an act of worship"
Matt 6:33"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
"Michael Ruff is one of THE most gifted musicians and songwriters ever to NOT be famous"

"His playing, his songs, his self effacing manner have a way of opening people to the Holy Spirits voice."
