A Rough Week Ahead

Last week was one of those that I don’t wish on anyone. But thank the Lord, I’m doing much better and am now ready to tackle the upcoming weekend.

This weekend we are having our annual youth weekend, complete with a program and activities for the youth at church. This is the 2nd year and although I’ve done it before, I’m still a little apprehensive about it all going smoothly. I’m kind of a perfectionist when my name is attached to something, aren’t we all…lol.

I Love You, But You Make Me Sick

My adorable little nephew, whom I love dearly and can’t seem to get enough of, has come and infected everyone. Visiting for the weekend, I didn’t think the small amount of time Key was in my presence would affect me that much and his little cold be passed on. I’m happy to say that although I wouldn’t necessarily blame Key for my sickness, he did have a role in the horrible way I’m feeling presently. You see, Key gave that “bug” to NuNu, which in turn she readily made available to me. Thanks a lot, Key. Key sure does have an effect on people.

He’s MY Shepherd

Sabbath Scripture

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
       he leads me beside quiet waters,

 3 he restores my soul.
       He guides me in paths of righteousness
       for his name’s sake.

 4 Even though I walk
       through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
       I will fear no evil,
       for you are with me;
       your rod and your staff,
       they comfort me.

 5 You prepare a table before me
       in the presence of my enemies.
       You anoint my head with oil;
       my cup overflows.

 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
       all the days of my life,
       and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

I don’t usually use this blog for political discussions, but I can’t resist marking and writing about what occurred earlier this week.

Tuesday this great nation elected its first African-American president, Barack Obama. This is a historical moment and many people had various feelings and emotions concerning this milestone. Amidst all the crying and celebrating, some people were left saddened and in a state of shock and disbelief. I can only imagine how those who had hoped for a different outcome must be feeling. I don’t know what they are going through and realize it will take time to get over that fact, but I can say we are all in this together and we must move forward together.


As I sit and think about what lies ahead for President-elect Obama, I’m hopeful and afraid at the same time. I’m hopeful because of the possibilities and afraid because of the pressure that I feel the world will put on this one man’s shoulders. He can’t fix this nation alone and I fear for those who think he can and for those who blame him for when he doesn’t. We are all Americans, and although he will hold the highest office, he’s only human and will need all of us to step up and take responsibility for ourselves while working together as a nation. This is only the first step in a series of steps in getting us back on track and being prosperous. Where we go from here is determined by what we do from here.
