The highlight of this past weekend was our visit to the history of a remarkable, elite, compassionate, educated Lady. The list goes on. My visit to her home was divinely random. I did not plan it. It just came to heart to celebrate her earth day of 151 years ago. I have to say that I appreciate the inclination because there was much about Ms. Walker that truth be told, I see in myself.
Sometimes, God will send us to a place for reconciliation, restoration and healing. And above all, freedom. It's a place of discovery and closure. I hope you enjoy the photos. If you have any questions about the photos, please let us know. If you ever travel to or through Richmond and never seen the neighborhood where Afr. Americans owned businesses and fellowship with notables like the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Maggie Walker's history museum is a great place to start. Black History Museum & Cultural Center is set to open December 2015.
That still small voice inside that says there is more in life to experience, I listen to it. I know exactly who it is from.
