The tears of August: Only love remains

August 31, 2015
The greatest is love
1 Corinthians 13:13 But now faith, hope, and love remain; these three virtues must characterize our lives. The greatest of these is love.
Two loved ones connected to friends and another person bonded to my heart by my ministry finished the circle of life and passed into eternity this month. Certainly when the calendar turned to August 1, 2015, their families never imagined they would be saying good-bye.
We’re never ready to say goodbye.
Death changes everything. The new normal never fits – it’s awkward, it’s painful, it’s stressful and it can bring regrets.  
It is good to love well (1 Peter 4:8), forgive easily, be truly present and let loved ones know they matter.  
Because.
Once death arrives we no longer have a chance to love. We'll either have wonderful memories or deep regrets. 

Choose love.

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…
