My son Kareem Johnson turned 46 last month and continues to be a blessing to me.
Don’t forget Union Square’s Neighborhood Watch meeting is Monday, November 7, at 6 p.m.
Tuesday is the big day to make a difference, to agree and make things happen. Let’s go out and vote on Tuesday, November 8.
Life is beautiful, and we have a choice to embrace it or destroy it. God gives us the opportunity to make a choice in life. He has given us everything. If He doesn’t do anything else, He has done enough for us to praise Him, and I will do just that as long as I have breath in my body. I praise God for all of my blessings.
This picture is my baby, who was born in October 46 years ago, and I am still praising God and smiling like it happened yesterday, and he is also, because God has blessed him with two precious daughters, Deja and Amirah, who are A students. Deja is in grad school working on becoming a doctor, and Amirah is a junior in high school making all As, despite her having a part-time job after school and on weekends.
We have a lot to praise God for and to shout about every day, whether it’s about family or friends’ successful blessings. Sitting on my porch the other day with some pains in my shoulder, my nephew came by talking to me about God’s goodness. I got so happy I was shouting all over the porch. When I finished shouting the pain was finished.
Minutes later out neighbor, Pastor Michael Edwards, stopped by, and I shared my story. He said to me, “Mrs. Ruby, we have something to shout about every day.” The Spirit hit me again, and I shouted more. See, God gives us new mercy every day, and we can shout every day for His grace and mercy. Waking us up each day is God’s doing, not the clock, not the noise, but the Almighty God, the King, the Most High, and our Savior.
We need Him every minute of the day, for we are not perfect. However, we can live a holy life, and the only way to live a holy life is to follow the Lord’s instructions and imitate His perfect example.
Pastor Todd’s column titled “Reflections from tragedy” truly blessed Butch and me.
Let’s pray for our sick loved ones and for Tuesday’s, November 8’s, voting turnout to be God’s will.
Happy birthday to all November babies.
I pray for God to help us to be faithful, regardless of the difficulties we face. Too many are losing hope and their faith in Christ.
