I Will Not Forget

September 11, 2001 was a very bad day.  So many lives lost.  Civilian and heroes. September 11, 2001 is a day I also remember as a day of unparalleled courage and love.  Hero first responders courageously went up the stairs to help others flee from danger while thousands fled for their lives.  These heroes knew… Continue reading I Will Not Forget

Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

As we were leaving a Walmart parking lot yesterday, I rolled down my car window and gave a dollar to a homeless man on the corner. He grabbed my hand and genuinely thanked me for the dollar, but asked if I had anything for a headache. It was so hot outside. No wonder he had… Continue reading Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

We the People

This morning I observed a city council meeting that the entire senior and junior classes were invited to listen and to comment. A couple of things caught my attention. 1) It was apparent that many of these kids do not understand what city government can do vs what is the responsibility of other governmental agencies.… Continue reading We the People

#bethelight – Day 103

Today is full of great intentions.  Sometimes intentions are where kindness begins. Today I intend on finding people to serve.  I really don't have any bright ideas.  I am just looking to make someone else's life a little better. Like yesterday... leaving the comfort of my home and the mindless activity of watching the Olympics… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 103

#bethelight – Day 33

Yesterday was about giving the gift of water.  Water to drink and Living water.  My husband and I made a donation to the Humanitarian Fund at church.  I wasn't sure where to take the case of water we bought, so today we are getting the family together to put together little bags with a couple… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 33

#bethelight – Day 32

Sadly, I did not have time to stop at the "giving tree" yesterday.  I will need to do that today.  I was, however, kind to everyone I was in contact with yesterday and I made a kid's day yesterday, that that should count for something. Today, I will work on #LIGHTtheWOLRD again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=HCPgJsI4vrU Jesus taught: … Continue reading #bethelight – Day 32

#bethelight – Day 31

Yesterday I focused on the positive and brought others along for the ride.  I am so proud of the kids that came to callbacks for our next production.  They all put their best foot forward and made choosing SO hard.  I may never be able to sleep!  Seriously.  There are SO many possibilities.  What I… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 31

#bethelight – Day 26

Yesterday we started the home decorating.  The mood is so happy around the house.  We still have more to go.  I'm sure we will get to it later in the week. Today is the Sabbath.  Today, as I reflect on the past 26 days, I am realizing more and more just how profoundly I have… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 26

Be the GOOD!

I've been thinking this for a few days. It is easy to get caught up in believing there is no more good in this world.  All you have to do is to look around a little and you see tragedy and despair from all corners of the globe. There is good! You see.  Last week… Continue reading Be the GOOD!
