To show gratitude
Philippians 1 reads, “Always in every prayer of mine, for all, making a request for joy.”
There are certain people in our lives who by just thinking about them they bring us joy. These are people who have blessed us in any number of ways. Thanking others and praying for them are ways we can show our gratitude.
There are many people in my life that I am grateful for, and I thank them all. I especially thank these two ladies for making a big impact in my life: Mrs. C.K. May and Mrs. LeVelma Simmons. They were great role models for me in my younger days, and they still are today.
I look back over my life and I say, “What a beautiful world we live in because of people like Mrs. May and Mrs. Simmons.”
Teachers who care and make a difference in students’ lives will always be in my heart, and I will express my gratitude to them as long as the Holy Spirit leads me.
Thank you, Lord, for placing special people in my life to bless me as you also do.
Speaking of gratitude, I would like to honor the greatest doctor of all time, Dr. Runas Powers Jr., who passed away recently. Dr. Powers was named to the best doctors in America from 2001 to 2004 and then again from 2007 to 2012. He retired after 34 years of practice as a successful doctor of internal medicine and rheumatology at Russell Medical Center. He was the first African American doctor to work at Russell Medical Center.
On a personal level, I can surely say that he was the best doctor ever. He took care of my daughter’s lupus for years. She was very special to him, and everyone at the hospital and the doctor’s office knew that.
Dr. Powers once said to me, “You have a sick child, but as long as she does as I say she will be alright.” He was very sincere and very dedicated to her.
I will never forget Dr. Powers’ attendance to my daughter, Janice.
I was sad when I heard the news of his passing. My gratitude to this great doctor will live on forever.
Let’s pray that people are kind to their fur babies during this hot weather. Keep them plenty of water and a cool house.
Let’s pray for calmer weather as God does His work.
Don’t get angry or afraid, just pray.
Happy birthday to my sister Peggy, my niece Anita and to all June babies and to the end-of-May babies, as well.
Spiritual improvement means a constant effort to become more like Jesus in our day-to-day lives. Read Ephesians 4:7-16.
