Did you know that most sinus infections are caused by viruses (CDC, 2014)? Other causes of sinuses include: allergies, chemicals and other pollutants in the air, and an immune system that is not very strong (CDC, 2014).
To Prevent Sinus Infections:
- Wash your hands often.
- Stay away from people who have colds and remember coughs and sneezes can penetrate an entire room.
- Ask your employer to put practices in place that reduce the spread of infection in the workplace.
- Avoid smoking and second hand smoke.

As I was standing in the kitchen this morning I was talking to God. I was asking God why there seems to be so much turmoil in the lives of people that I love. I told him that I wish that I could help them, but all I can do is pray for them. I waited a few moments and in my thoughts/heart I heard:
Sometimes people live where they should only have visited.
Sometimes people love what they should hate.
Sometimes people go left when they should have gone right.
In short, if people sought me(God) and not their own feelings, lusts, etc. then I would guide their footsteps and they would experience the peace and wholeness that I have predestined for their lives.
Today I weighed in and I am truly excited. My blood pressure was excellent and I have officially lost 69 pounds. The truth is I have not been this small since 7th grade. In 7th grade, my doctor increased my daily dosage of steroids to allow me to breathe, and in so doing, I gained about 50 lbs per year for the next few years. From that point on, I have battled with weight issues. I am so happy that I have moved into a healthy state in my body. Words cannot express my gratitude.
Minister Roslyn Johnson was born & raised in South Central Los Angeles during the tumultuous 1960s (Assassinations of President JFKennedy & Martin Luther King Jr., Watts Riots, etc) . Not just raised in church, she & her family were “the church” in their community, and she dutifully performed all “responsibilities” of religious service. Through a comedy of errors, she realized that she was missing something–A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP W/JESUS CHRIST. Saturated in the Holy Bible and it’s teachings since childhood, she was called to preach at age 19. Her assignment–to preach/teach RELATIONSHIP W/JESUS to the church (people who assume that going/performing in church equals salvation). Her education & accomplishments are too numerous to list.
