Please pray for our local National Guard soldiers as they leave home to serve their country today. God Bless our National Guardsmen.
I am praying for Peace on Earth. Please say a special prayer for our local National Guard soldiers who are leaving home to go to war on our behalf this morning, from Milan, Tennessee. I pray that God will watch over them as they train for the next two months in preparation for their deployment to Iraq in February, 2010. I am overwhelmed with pride and compassion when I think of all our troops do to serve their country, and because I love them so much for what they are doing, I wish they didn’t have to go to war.

I am so thankful for the wonderful things in my life. Do right, work hard and be of service to others and you will be rewarded. This is a wonderful world and a wonderful life. :)
The key to my success has always been gratitude. I believe the events of my life have proven to me that if you work hard, always maintain gratitude for everything in your life and always seek to be of service to others, then you will be justly rewarded and can look back content in knowing that you lived the right way. I am thankful. I am happy.
Found this Great ‘Cherokee’ story at andwelove.com, who’s author found it on someone’s facebook page. Read it, it is the truth.
Found this quote at andwelove.com, here:
“One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between 2 wolves.
One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Watch Martin Luther King speak: Righteous Indignation, strength, hope, peace, love; a sense of being used up for some greater purpose.
Martin Luther King’s final speech, in Memphis, TN:
“Somewhere I read…”
….Will the ‘God of History,’ one day say, “That was not enough!…I was hungry and ye fed me not?”
