Advent begins

For these coming "weeks of purple" look to find Christ in all people, in all situations. Christ is calling us, announcing His coming, telling us to be ready for the most glorious time of our lives.
The Lord who we are waiting for is already present in the people we are waiting with.

This day ... Christ the King

Angels, saints, and nations sing:
"Praised be Jesus Christ, our King;
Lord of earth and sky and sea,
King of love on Calvary."

Christ, thou King of truth and might,
Be to us eternal light,
Till in peace each nation rings
With they praises, King of kings.

Dad ...

February 18, 1921 - November 14, 2000

I think of you and I smile ... I remember ... growing up you were the light of my life, you still are.
I was speaking with someone the other day and they mentioned you. They said you were such a nice man, yes you were, you always will be. In my world the word nice is exceptional, plain and simply put but powerful. There aren't many people who are nice ... I had one for my father. My life has been blessed.

I will be at adoration today from 4:00 to 5:00. I picked today, November 14th because it was your day. I only just realized at this moment the timing ... you passed at 4:15pm. I'll be there then, prayers with you.
God bless you.

I love you.

From a friend

I remember reading about the children of Israel who turned from God time and time again, only to realize their mistake and pray for forgiveness. Each time, God would forgive them and they would walk with him for a time. So, I am going to ask you to join me in praying for our nation every day. Please read the email below.

God is in control. May God Have Mercy On America - Protect Our Troops. When I was in Atlanta last week, there were signs in people's yards that said, " America , prayer is our only hope" - with 2 Chronicles 7:14 underneath.. We certainly need God's help! I have no idea who started this, but I certainly agree with this e-mail. I heard a preacher on TV tonight who said if we pray for our nation things will turn around. After a day of contemplation and soul searching, I have decided to reach out to my friends and relatives and ask you to do something that has been troubling me for a long time. Our nation is/has been on the slippery slope for a long time. If you look around you will find corruption, greed, moral decay, and a steady move away from the things that made us great. The principles upon which this nation was founded are no longer our backbone. However, we can reverse this trend. 2 Chronicles. 7:14 ... In God's Word, He states, "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." I am convinced that we must pray for our nation and its leaders and ask for forgiveness. So I ask you to join me in this plea to our Lord. Here's a quote from Ronald Reagan: "If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."I truly believe this is why the United States of America is in the shape it's in today. Most people have forgotten that we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD! Let us stand up and remind people of this. May God Bless you all!
