Plan to Talk to Someone Close to You Today

Media_httpwwwtextuall_mgifi

Go ahead. Pick up the phone and spend like 6 minutes. Call someone you love.

How long has it been since you did something like that? What if you called your spouse and ask them how their day is going. Have you spoken to your dad or mom in a while? Do they know what is happening in your world?

We get so busy, right? We all use our cell phones for these short conversations. Many times they are interruptions in our day, many times it involves business or we may even be working our to-do list right during our drive to and from somewhere. Drive, hurry, errand, lunch, work — busy, busy, busy.

So add one more thing. Add something that may just make a difference in your grandmother’s life. Call your daughter. Oh, and have no agenda when you do this. Just tell them you love them and were thinking about them. Well? What are you waiting for??? 😉

Psalm 9:1 (NLT) I will thank you, Lord, with all my heart. I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.

True Freedom — Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jesus Christ

Media_httpuploadwikim_jfcdh

Last year on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, Ginger and I celebrated with the band she sings and plays keyboards in called L-Rey.

I was truly impressed as thousands gathered in the Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco and express their appreciation for what he did for freedom in our nation. Of course, there is still much to do, but in the past 40+ years the landscape has changed for millions of people.

God created us in His image! We must never forget that. And He created us to know Him and to love Him. And that certainly means everyone. So let us take our time, offer a prayer of thanksgiving, to our creator.

Genesis 1:27 (New Living Translation)

So God created human beings in his own image.
      In the image of God he created them;
      male and female he created them.

Along these lines, we also can read on to find much deeper and forever-lasting freedom. That freedom is found in none other than faith in Jesus. We often pray for peace for our neighborhoods, in our families, in our nation, and in our world. But how much more does God long for us to have absolute freedom in our spirits … in our hearts.

John 8:36 (Amplified Bible)

So if the Son liberates you [makes you a free person], then you are really and unquestionably free.

Starbucks Break

I love going to Starbucks. The atmosphere is friendly and today I met a couple of new friends. Joe and Angie were just hanging out for a cup. Angie is a “retired” elementary school teacher and Joe an Iron Worker.

In the blowing rain, it’s nice to come into a warm and inviting place. I even got to share my faith with them a little.

Here is a link to a quick seesmic video I made while hanging out there.
