about Heinz Weverink
individual

Do not look at my grey hair as if it were a sign. I post on Deily as a layman not as a leader of any religions. I post inspiration and I ask questions and will continue to do so as long as I’m allowed. I do not have the answers, in fact I tend to ask more questions. But I will ask that you think. I look at the various scriptures from all denominations and faiths as guidance and try to interpret those thoughts and beliefs into practical every day use.
