The events of the past week regarding the historic hurricane that the Lord sent has sent many shock waves around the world. There are many who have lost everything, and have no resources to even attain the basics needs (Sirach 29:21). The media has focused their attention on the weathy and the destruction that occurred in major communities in the northeast United States, Cuba and arts of Haiti, and Caribbean countries which were hit hard as well. In fact, many of our fellow kinsmen have been living in these very same conditions for many years based on greed of the governments that conquered them and now through the judgement of the Most.
Apocrypha: The Book of Sirach Chapter 2 vs 1-5 My son, if thou come to serve the Lord, prepare thy soul for temptation. Set thy heart aright, and constantly endure, and make not haste in time of trouble. Cleave unto him, and depart not away, that thou mayest be increased at thy last end.

My husband and I have date night at home on occasion since he’s a big movie buff with old and newer movies and would like to share our choices with you from time to time. He is forever the film critic so pass the buttered popcorn please! This weeks choice is the movie ‘The Wiz’ featuring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson.

It had singing, dancing,.
Nehemiah 8 vs. 10 “The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Sisters, our people are spiritually and physically SICK. We need help and healing from the Lord. The only medicine that is going to help us is the Bible. To be prescribed and taken daily as per the direct orders from the Heavenly Father.
