Be Merry

be merry

Be Merry…Be the Gift. Because of Grace, you can… Be the Comfort.

The good news is you can handle your expectations

Please Remember: This nativity had an object in mind. That object is you and me.

You might be someone’s Christmas miracle

Because you are mine! Your interest, kind comments, and emails are gifts. Thank you!

Because of Grace

If you run out of people to pray for, please pray for our emergency personnel, our soldiers, and those who continue to wait for their Christmas miracle.

Merry Christmas!

Monday Words for the Soul~September 2~Labor Day

papers and glassesThe first Monday of September we celebrate Labor Day.  A day to recognize our American workers’, who keep the nation’s economic train on it’s tracks.  Although, we are all aware this Labor Day our nation has record unemployment and economic uncertainty.
As we gather with family and friends to enjoy this holiday – which may include baseball, picnics, beach or a pool party – lets remember those family members, friends and Americans struggling.
Lastly, of course, many Americans’, who are in the armed forces serving overseas, will be without their families this holiday.  Take a moment and give thanks to the men and women in uniform.  The Americans in uniform and our civilians overseas do ensure our freedom to enjoy this holiday in this great nation of ours.
 Happy Labor Day.

And I would gently add, take a moment to remember so many folks who are not currently part of the labor force, but would like to be and are looking for jobs.  :)

Happy July 4th!

Today, we celebrate the birth of the greatest nation, The United States Of American.  Our leaders in 1776 declared independence from the Kingdom Of Great Britain – thus the birth of America.  236 years of freedom and still going strong.    Our freedom symbol, recognized world wide is our Flag, the Flag of the United States Of America.  Display her proudly and properly. Let our heart and mind know that our men and women in the armed forces protect our country and our flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic. May our country, in dealing with other countries – May she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.  ~By Jim McShane
