Who is Safoine Sassi? He hacked my website. I don't get it. Do you?

Has anyone reading this blog ever experienced something they worked hard for destroyed by someone that they never met?  I experienced that on Thursday, February 17, 2011.

A man known as Safoine Sassi, a hacker for some unknown reason destroyed my website @   His contact email is  

My first reaction was one of tears.  I work so hard for everything I have.  I couldn't understand why this person that I don't even know would do something so mean.  I prayed.  By the grace of God I sent him the Lord's Prayer and told him that I forgave him.  I asked him to restore my site.  I am a single mother of three sons doing a full time ministry and business.  I was laid off of my corporate job last year and this is my sole source of income.  My site is a Christian site that talks about the love of Christ.  I don't single anyone out.  Christianity is a choice. I choose to be a Christian.  

This man has a face book page, so I sent him a friend request so I could send him a private message.  I sent him a message of love and forgiveness.  He responded by saying "In Jesus Christ Name."  I am a Muslim man. ”I sent Him one final message of love and forgiveness, asking him to restore my site.  I don't have any bitterness towards this person.  I truly pray for Him.  I need my site restored so I can continue with the things God has called me to do which is feed the hungry, visit the sick, help the poor and clothe the naked. 

I thank God for the gift of love.  Love truly does cover a multitude of sins.  If it wasn’t' for Jesus love for us, I would not be able to walk in forgiveness and love.  How does one forgive those who hurt us?  Jesus said while dying on the cross “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.” 

What is hacking?  I don’t get it.  Why does this person or their group choose to destroy other people’s hard work?  Is it hatred?  Is it prejudice?  Is it just something people do? 

I don’t get it.  Do you?  Please advise.

Do You Care? Does Anyone?

"Do you care?"  "Does anyone?"  This is so heavy on my heart.

I wonder sometimes if anyone really cares about anything other than their own personal agendas. I woke up this morning asking God out of all of the people in the world why did He give me this mission. I told Him no one seems to care. Everyone is so busy with their own lives; they very seldom have the time to step outside of their boxes to see a bigger picture.

“Why me Lord?” I’m a single mom of three sons, with one getting ready for college and another going back to college. This is not an easy task. I have the whole world on my shoulders; I’m not God.

God has the whole world in His hands. Nothing is too big or too small for God. Back to the question, “why me Lord?” There are so many other people who can do this; people with prestige, fame, fortune, and wealth. “Why me?” I’m an unemployed single mom with a vision to help the world. Yet, the world doesn’t seem to care.

I’ve worked all of my life taking care of my family and serving the ministry in one capacity or another. I’ve never been without employment. This is the first time in twenty-five years I don’t have a corporate job. God gave me a business/ministry while working a job and taking care of three small sons. The job is gone. The business/ministry is in the building stages. God is not opening doors for anything else at the moment. I and my sons are truly in His hands. We trust Him to direct our paths. It truly is a faith walk.

Once again I ask, if anyone cares?

I was with a friend of mind the other day when a homeless man in what appeared to be his late twenties walked into the place where we were eating. The young man asked me if I could help Him. He went on to say, that he lost his job a few months back and hadn’t been able to find any work. He said he was studying welding and needed money to take the test. My desire was to help him; however, before I could say anything, my friend told him to leave. I sat there with this look of concern on my face. My friend asked me what was wrong. I said maybe we should have tried to help him. My friend went on to say, oh the guy was young, no excuse for that and was probably on drugs. I told my friend, if it wasn’t for God’s grace that could be me. We don’t know his story; only God does. I took the hands of my friend and we prayed for the young man. We asked God to meet his needs.

Last year at this time I was working as a corporate supervisor making decent money. One year later, I don’t have a job. My life changed in an instance. We don’t know what the future holds for any of us. Only God knows the future. Nothing is for certain these days, except God. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

My trust is in God; therefore I know by faith that God will take care of me and my sons. He always has. Unfortunately, there are many who don’t know or believe that. Many have given up on life. Everyone on the streets aren’t homeless because they are drug addicts, or don’t want to work. Many of them are just like me or you. They were working, lost their jobs, their families or homes and just gave up. Do we give up on them as well? Will you give up on me? I pray not.

God knows their stories. Who are we to judge? Matthew 25: 37-40 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

If it wasn’t for God’s grace where would I be? Where would you be? God’s mercy endures. His grace is sufficient.

Ask yourself, if you really care? If the answer is yes, please step outside of your box and do something. If the answer is no, well keep on stepping; at least you were honest.

For those that do care and I realize there are many that do, please don’t be offended. I thank God for you; however, there is so much that needs to be done.

Love is the greatest gift.” It will take love and togetherness to keep us from falling if anything tragic ever happens.” Praise God for His mercy and grace each day.
