SERVE... Some of the greatest, most rewarding instances in life occur while serving! FOUR: Mommy, my shoe is untied. THEORY: Don’t worry Mommy, I’ll help brother. This blessed my soul so much! If we could grasp the concept that serving is a high honor, then the better off many of us will be. Thank you #GrayBabies for this moment that started off as just a picture that has such significant messaging. #SiblingLove #ServeFirst
The adorable kids, with the help of their school teacher, came up with a song and dance performance, dedicated to their parents to commemorate their big day.

African American men live an average of 72 years. I’m 46 years old. You do the math. My life has been a journey of self discovery and awakening. God, in His love, sends exactly what you need to become what He intended for you to be in the first place. Throughout this journey I didn’t realize how scorched portions of my heart had become. And the only salve for a scorched heart is love. Not love like on tv. Real love. Love that heals. Love that speaks. Love that breathes. Love that lives in and of itself. A love that resuscitates. A love that expands. A love that fights. 9 years ago I was a recipient of THAT KIND OF LOVE. @iamaventergray, thank you for teaching me what married love is. I love you more each day. I am in love with you in a way I didn’t understand or had the capacity to give at any other point in my life. You are a gift to me. My life is exponentially better in every way because of you. In nine years of being married to you I have seen five versions of myself show up. From the boy who was wounded inside a man trying to grow all the way up to today-who is now a man who knows exactly who he is and what my calling is. You have loved me In each season. And I love you for it. May I be the champion of your dreams in the years I have remaining as you have been for mine. Thank you for our children, our home and this life. You’re more than enough. Thank you for showing me that my understanding of love was not wrong-just incomplete. Now I see. And I see it because of you. May the years I have left reflect that the words I typed match the life I lived. Forever yours. Me. #121110 #GraysAre9
The "Relentless Church" minister followed suit, sharing the same picture with his long stretch of a loving tribute to the "champion of his dreams."
THE MINISTERING PAIR HAVE LIVED THROUGH PAST CRITICISMS
The duo have had quite a number of controversies since establishing their ministery. In the past months, the couple has endured several criticisms from the media and observers as a result of their ministerial practices.
In an earlier controversy, the ministers were criticized for acquiring a 7,247sq.ft Sampsville home worth $1.8 million.
According to Greenville News, the property was bought by the church members, which raised speculations that the pastor was preying on his church members to enrich himself.
Shortly after, another issue arose when the controversial pastor urged his members to contribute $300 each, amounting to $250 thousand, for the renovation of the church's roof, as well as paying off other inherited debts from the immediate past minister, Ron Carpenter.
SURVIVING A NEAR DIVORCE
In January this year, the father of two revealed that he failed his wife as a husband for years. He explained how close they were to getting a divorce severally in the last two years.
Admittedly, no one noticed the rift between them because they both put up a happy face when out in public, to mask the tears and long nights on the couch.
On their wedding anniversary last year, the controversial pastor gifted his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini, as pacification for his years of failing her.
The duo have enjoyed a peaceful union ever since their make up. Happy anniversary to the couple!
