Soccer player Jonathan Moore Jr. holds a trophy he recently received. His team won the final game of their season 3-0, with Jonathan scoring two of the three goals. Congratulations, Jonathan!
People do not do what they do because of the color of their skin. They do what is familiar to them, accessible to them and what vibrates in their soul.
It’s about ancestry. It’s about tradition! It’s about what feels good and what doesn’t, and it’s all okay. Once we begin to understand that we are so much more than color, we can begin to accept our individual differences. We can eat what we want, play what we ant, go where we want, and do what we want, because we choose to.
No one thing is better than the other because of who does it. What makes an activity attractive and available is how it is supported by the people who do it. My 12-year-old great-nephew Jonathan Elliott Moore Jr. does what he does because he likes to do it and not because his color keeps him from doing it.
You have to do it to understand. It’s a soul thing and not a color thing. Jonathan has been playing soccer for six seasons and loving it. On June 17, he and his team won first place for the final game of the season. They won 3-0, and Jonathan scored two of the three goals.
Congratulations to Jonathan and his team. We are very proud of Jonathan’s achievement and being an all-around great student. If you are looking for a great soccer player, my nephew Jonathan is a free agent (smile). He feels so free when playing soccer.
If you are not totally free, ask yourself why, says Stuart Wilde. Some of us are not free because of unforgiveness in our hearts. Everyone has had someone who has done them wrong, and we live with anger and thoughts of revenge.
We want to see them suffer. We want them to know they cannot get away with what they did. But they did get away if your anger keeps you stuck in the situation.
We all make mistakes and create pain for others. Forgiveness frees us from the pain of the past and moves us beyond our mistakes in the future. Luke 6:37 lets us know to “forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
I hope everyone enjoyed the freedom of choice as they celebrated Independence Day on Tuesday and the weekend, as well. I had my great-grandbabies for the weekend and enjoyed watching them enjoy.
I had a bittersweet moment remembering my deceased daughter, Janice, whose birthday is July 2; my brother Scoop, also July 2; and I learned that my nephew Grady Hill died this day. However, I felt free to cry, laugh and to reminisce of the good times.
Happy birthday to Union Square’s Lynne Taylor, who celebrated her birthday with much joy and freedom. Birthday wishes also go to Dakota Hill, Pastor Christopher Todd and to all July babies.
Don’t forget, Union Square’s Neighborhood Watch meeting/eating is Monday, July 10. Come and enjoy our delayed Fourth of July celebration.
We are still praying for our ill loved ones and our country, as well as the Hill family.
