And I share this with you because I can relate to you. For a while I walked around thinking, ‘What will they say? What will they think about me?’ But now I tell you, I don’t live my life for folk.

So I tell you, this child that I carry, God has given me this child, and I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all!
