Today is a very special day around the world. I remember hearing on the radio, that Martin Luther King Jr. had been shot and killed. I was stunned and sadden by the news. My heart was heavy, because I thought what will happen to us as a people (Black) and as a nation. Martins I Have A Dream speech is known around the world as one of Hope. Each time I hear the speech, I wounder, what Martin would think about the world as it is now. We have made some progress, and yes, there is still much work to do. If you follow the news, as I do some days, it would seem like we are moving in a backward movement. Sometime I wonder, what is going on! My hope, is that all my sisters and brothers, take a step back and look at what is happening in our world, communities, churches and ask them self the question, am I doing all I can to help make the world a better place. Am I uplifting someone everyday. Am I the light, in someones darkness.
As we prepare to move forward in 2015, keep in mind, that we are all here to give of service.
I wish you much Peace, Faith, & Courage!
Today is January 2, 2015. We now have 364 days to plan, hope, dream and look forward to what is in front of us for the new year. Have you made your Creative Invitations for the new year? I thought I would change the worn out phase, New Year Resolutions. I am sure that many of us are working on doing things different than we did in 2014. I know I am. Have you ever really thought, how your life passion could be , if you/we did just one of the things on our list of Things To Do? As we work on our personal plans/goals, let's not forget about those who need our help. By this I mean, lets give of Service this year, like never before. If you have never Volunteered, it will Change your life for ever. Starting out on day two of 2015, let's be kinder, loving and respectfully of each other. Sure, we all think about thing in a different manner, but in the long run, we are all wanting to be loved & respected.
I love quotes: You Can't start the Next Chapter of your Life If you Keep Re-Reading The Last On.
