To kick off our Thanksgiving week, I am posting this Pre-Thanksgiving inspiration from both 1 Corinthians 1:4-5 and Psalm 100:4-5. I also must ask: What are you thankful for? Let me hear from you with your responses. If you are traveling this week, please be extra careful. There are a lot of people who travel during this time and the death toll mounts. Make sure that you are watching out for the other driver as well as yourself. Also check out Jason Nelson’s “Nothing Without You”
1 Corinthians 1:4-5King James Version (KJV) 4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; AND… Psalm 100:4-5King James Version (KJV) 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
One of the most controversial politicians of our time, Marion Barry, is dead. Barry was 78 years old. He was first elected mayor of Washington, DC in 1978. He gained international attention in 1990 when he was videotaped in a FBI sting smoking crack with a female friend in a DC hotel. “That B#$%^ set me up” were Barry’s words that some repeated for years. Despite being caught in the FBI sting, Barry who faced many charges, was only convicted of a single count of drug possession. He was sentenced to six months in jail. This conviction did not stop Marion Barry. Barry later returned to politics where he won a city council seat and ultimately won as mayor… again in 1994.
“Marion Barry changed America with his unmitigated gall to stand up in the ashes of where he had fallen and come back to win,” poet Maya Angelou said in 1999. Condolences go out to the family as they deal with his lost.
In this video below, this lady says a lot. I try not to be judgmental but this woman really articulates a lot of what I’m feeling about this dumbness that is put on in the name of religion. Please listen at what she has to say. Are you kidding me?
This is hilarious. Thanks A. Renae for sending it. One thing about this lady… She was telling the truth. How many times do you hear people in church testilying? Yeah, you heard me correctly… Some of these people get up and testily! Don’t let that be you.
I’ve been slack on posting. Hopefully this will get me back on track. Have a great day.
The KKK is getting a makeover (lol)…… [poor child—must be drunk… or high] according to John Abarr, a member of the Montana Klan, out with the old and in with the new – Klan, that is. He says the organization wants to add more diversity because they aim to build a strong America.
According to the Washington Times, “The new Klan will not focus on race, but rather on reining in the federal government and keeping Capitol Hill from establishing a “new world order” under a unified force.
Abarr has been busy folks. He has apparently got the attention of NAACP rep Jimmy Simmons, who he met last year and apparently convinced that the direction of the “new Klan” might be worth looking into. Simmons commented that if Abarr holds a peace summit next summer, he would “take a strong look” at joining” – this according to USA Today.
There are no words from me…
