My Divine Note: Be strong and take heart – Psalm 31:24

Monday, August 15, 2011
Psalm 31:24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
Strength. I gain my strength from the Lord, from his promises and from his love. Today at dusk upon entering the grocery store, I saw a big, bright summer moon partially hidden behind the tall suburban skyscrapers of my neighborhood. It was huge and red, and it made me smile. J I was amazed at its uniqueness, it took my breath away. I motioned for my favorite store greeter to step out with me to see the vision, and he, along with another passerby, stopped to enjoy the view.
Just like that moon was partially hidden from my sight; I know that while I can’t see God, I can count on his presence and his hope. Perhaps it took a giant red moon for the Lord to get my attention. It was his way of letting me know that he knows the contents of my heart. He is aware of the story of my life, and he will help me hang on when I feel like letting go.
I will enjoy and appreciate the bright reminders that he puts in my path to light my way.

Today we officially approved hospice care for my mother. I wrote this note on Monday night after I realized that she wasn’t looking good. It was God’s way of preparing me for each step of the journey ahead.

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…
