This is my personal blog. My heart, my thoughts, my passions so that anyone may get to know me.Yes, It is the hope of most of us isn't it? To know and to be known and loved is our hope. I want to inspire and encourage as many people as I can to give their lives and make a difference in the lives of others. What else do I have to give and leave behind but words of life, hope and purpose? So here I am, like me, love me or whatever...her I am.

2012 and the Promises to Come
I am excited about 2012. There are so many promise of a bright new day. I'm not a doomsdayer. I look at people and the world and I see great promise. I believe great things are ahead, not a doomsday scenario. Don't get me wrong, I am aware that there are many challenges in the world. But these challenges are meant to be overcome. We as the people who dwell on this earth need to begin to see the beauty and greatness in each other. We should begin to see the potential for our land that God has blessed us with. We have a responsibility to take care of our environment and one another. None of us can live like islands in and of ourselves. We need each other and we need to stop acting like we don't. It's important that we stop pushing the weak people aside. Stop overlooking the poor and needy. We need to stop oppressing people in our society and begin to value each person as they are. If we were to encourage our students in school to succeed and graduate, we wouldn't have such a high dropout rate. If we were to buildup our men in the family they would not make a choice to leave their families. If we were to embrace the immigrants and the men and women who return from combat and prison, we wouldn't have to worry about strains on our social services. If only we could see the possibilities beyond our political, economic and social affiliations and see people through the eyes of a loving God who loves and cares for us all. We are all a little blind at times, but 2012 gives us an opportunity to see life as fresh and new when we believe that 2012 has awesome promises to come.
