Getting Ready

I am amazed at the press for Hurricane Irene.  One news reporter stated that she could not imagine anyone on the street, then she paused, except the homeless.  Hello.... the homeless. No one appears to be concerned about the everyday life of the homeless.  We get excited only on special occasions - you know at Thanksgiving - when we feed them, at Christmas when they may get a blanket. I guess what I am saying is  that we have so many of our priorities socially backwards. 

Think about it.  I am going to prepare for Irene.  Pray and then wait.  type to you later

Our area just experienced a 5.8 earthquake. Wow!  It has caused quite a bit of stir in the D.C. area as earthquakes are not normal. It is very interesting that everyone is talking about it; yet we experience earthquake monumental experiences in our lives and we don't want to talk about it. With this earthquake people are checking for cracks and other stress issues to buildings, bridges, and rightfully so. What about the stress issues we face in our lives and do not get any type of help because we do not reach out?   How can we get help if we don't call out. And how can we help others if we can't recognize the stress signals?
We have been so stressed that what is abnormal appears normal.  Take a deep breath and try to listen.  Examine the earthquake level issues in your lives, and get help. type to you later

Rock Steady

Whew!  Navigating the waters of life can be difficult.  If your moral, ethical, spiritual compass is not functioning it can be brutal.  You see, it is always something and it can come in so many ways at one time.  How on earth can you make it?  Glad you asked (as F.G. Sampson II used to say).  Learn to listen for God's directions.  Watch what is going on.  Do not react to everything.  You see, many things are just a distraction on the way to your destiny.  Stay focused!  Rock steady.  type to you later.

Day to day occurrences should be somewhat a teaching moment, an experience. It should not be so overwhelming that we cannot make it. Life is what it says-life-alive with possibilities. Enjoy yours. type to you later.

A friend's grandson committed suicide. That was devastating as there are so many questions, so much pondering. And the comments have been "rest in peace." I am beginning to wonder "is that all we got?" No! There is more. When we,as a community of believers can embrace, can support one another, then that 'one anothering' that loving one another will result in more "living in peace." I bless you with looking out for your sister, your brother. Live in peace! type to you later.
