This Site Index was made because my site has grown so large I felt I needed to find a way to make navigation more easy for my visitors. 

(I am also working as fast as I can to reduce the size of this page to by making smaller index pages of sections.. hopefully that will be soon.. the first ones in progress are Berry's Spiritual Side, Holiday, and Tutorials Pages.. all of these are index of pages.. whew.. lol)

Having page descriptions here helps you decide whether you want to view a page or not. Or help you to find an area you are specifically looking for. It saves you from having to look through pages you may not be interested in.

On this page I will be putting a 'date' if there is a new page or an update somewhere on a page.

This may be the best page to bookmark if you like this site and want to keep up with  what's new.

Ok enough talk.. here are the pages.. the 'fun' stuff.. (smile)

And when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and hamlet, from every state and city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children - black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Catholics and Protestants - will be able to join hands and to sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last, free at last; thank God Almighty, we are free at last."
