How have you been enjoying the summer? Has it been hot enough for you?. Maybe it’s been nice and cool where you are at. It’s been hot here.
I’d like to thank you for the birthday greetings. Many people posted birthday greetings out on my facebook page. It’s very well appreciated. I had a great birthday. I went to a place called Californo’s to listen to the jazz band. Afterwards I met with some of the players of the sax section. I asked very humbly if I can sit in some time, their response was sure why not!. These guys are incredible players so sitting in with them will be an education and a treat. I’m looking forward to it.
This week is the 4th of July and it’s a time we celebrate our freedom. We should also take the time to remember the cost of that freedom and the ones who have and are currently sacrificing themselves for our freedom. This past Sunday we had a wonderful patriotic service honoring our service men and women. One gentlemen is 97 years old and is WW2 vet. Still walking and smiling. So remember to thank a vet.

Do you feel HOPELESS ?
All are HOPELESS…
Not a very encouraging thought is it? I recently heard a pastor talk about his youngest son who served in Iraq and was exposed to toxic chemicals. At 21 this young man came down with cancer that eventually took his life. Very sad. He went through cancer treatments and chemo therapy which only gave him some extra months to live. When the father talked with the doctor, the doctor told the boy’s father that there was never any hope for recovery. Not very good news and a very hopeless situation. The father felt hopeless and frustrated and then started seeking God and asking for God’s wisdom.
The father (pastor) then shared what God revealed to him. God, who created all people and considers all people his children also felt hopeless and frustrated for us. So God, (the loving father), then sent his son Jesus on earth to be a sacrifice for us so that God, (The loving father), can spend all eternity with us. He loves that much that he sacrificed the most precious thing he had, (his son), so we all can have hope.
What about your life? What is your purpose? Who do you follow?
A life without God is a Hopeless life. God sent Jesus to earth to die/sacrifice himself so we All can have hope now and an abundant life after we die. Find out what your purpose is and fulfill it.
Thanks for your support and please take care and keep the emails coming. Also remember to pray for leaders and our schools.
