A Year to Remember

It's a nice crisp day here in Sunny California. The temperature is a smooth 62 Degrees and the sun is out.
I was just in Chicago where it was considered a heat wave for this time of the year - 33 Degrees; chilly for me, but nice, crisp and clean. It was a nice change for a few days.
We celebrated what we were grateful for (we gathered in a circle and each mentioned what family branch we were from, and said two things that we were grateful for) and completed the circle of life by having funeral services for my favorite Great-Uncle JR., the day after Thanksgiving.
My Great-Aunt Birtha called us all to her table. She is the Matriarch of our family, and lives in Chicago. She and Uncle JR. were married for 50 years.
We came from California, Michigan, Ohio, Nevada, Louisiana and Bermuda. All to bid Uncle JR. farewell. We will truly miss Uncle JR.,
and continue to treasure our Great-Aunt Birtha. Life truly is a cycle...

I'm hoping that you and yours get a chance to reflect on what it is that is important to you, and tell those that you love, that they are truly valued.

Then get out of the house and do something fun!

Faith the Size of a Mustard Seed

I feel so thankful to live in a time and age where we as a group of people have decided to work together for a common cause. We have all had a chance to watch the news and look around and see how our country is wavering. We each must have taken a moment to see that our concentration must be that of the business of healing this country. The business of providing jobs for people so that they can have a decent place to live and food on the table. Everyone you see needs food, clothing and shelter. I have to eat and you have to eat. Remember that...

Luke 17: 6 says that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, anything can happen. To say it better, Mark 11:23 "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him."

Barack Obama is living proof of that.

I'm going to say a prayer and get some rest. You do the same, now.

Yes We Can!


Yes, We Can!

Good Morning all of you fellow American citizens! It's November 4th, and it is time for us to take advantage of - you guessed it - the right to vote!

Get up and on it!

Have a great day at the polls.
