Warrior

20170715_202822

And in his dream he was a boy again, praying,

in a church with stained glass, 

praying to be strong,

to become a warrior

to fight the bullies of this world,

and when he woke up,

searching the ceiling, he said,

“amen…”

as the sun was rising.

A Vision of Hope and Unity

20181017_151012

We each need to feel loved and accepted don’t we? Especially in this time, in this world in which we live,

we need to respond in the opposite spirit of hate.

White Nationalists create fear of the other and hateful rhetoric, even in these United States.

Let us stand together offering acceptance of people,

even those different than ourselves, with a vision of hope and unity.

I’m standing with immigrants, and all victims of violence, in our world.

Amen.

Emergency Personnel

Have you ever been in a car accident? Or had your house on fire, or needed an ambulance? Or been caught in a blizzard?

This is a thank you to all of the emergency personnel that help us in our greatest times of need – thank you! 

You are some of the most amazing people! You are the greatest of all heroes!

So Many Heroes

20170503_164943

When I think of veterans I think of so many heroes in our world today.

I think of both men and women of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. Along with the Coast Guard, and National Guard.

But I also think of others that save our lives, protect our lives every day,

the firefighters, police officers, paramedics,

emergency room doctors and nurses.

So many heroes in our world today,

protecting you and I. 

Thank you to each one!

Even on Christmas Day

police-car-night

In my state, the police have blue lights mostly

but they can mix the blue with red,

and the fire department uses only red

but they usually throw in

some white to be seen.

Thank God they are there 

true heroes of America

the men and women

working,

even on Christmas day.
