For any woman in Christ, she is now a new creation. Her spirit is now awakened and has started her new journey as a spiritual mother in training being led by the Holy Spirit Himself, guiding her on the straight path of righteousness. A House of Mercy mom depends on the father above and puts him first above all things as she prepares to go through this wonderful and beautiful life that God created for her. What do the letters ‘M O M’ stand for you ask? – Mother on a Mission. And that mission is to let Christ shine so bright through her that others see nothing, but the power of Jesus Christ’s love pours out of her soul, overflowing with compassion and love. Who would have ever thought God would pick a little tiny town by the name of Olney, Texas to be the light on a hill for the city to see, but it doesn’t stop there. Now, these hand-picked moms are spreading their wings like eagles to carry that Light of Christ to destinations that are endless. So, therefore my House of Mercy moms, I say to you, God bless.
In this moment, the world is spinning along its usual path in a universe so gigantic that we can’t even really conceive of its magnificence. Earth is just one small dot on a grid of millions of heavenly bodies of different kinds. Yet, here we are, special creation, made in the image of God, bent under the weight of incredible sin, grieving over wars that are raging as I write, powerless to control what cannot be controlled. Worried. Terrified. Wondering how it all turns out okay in the end.
The smell of charcoal burning in a barbeque pit, the aroma of ribs and hamburgers smoking on a grill, and the gathering of friends and family in our backyards with the American flag waving in the distance. For many of us Americans these are symbols of Memorial Day, but we tend to lose sight of the real importance behind this holiday. Did you know that Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day? On May 5, 1868, the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), constituted Decoration Day as a time for our nation to adorn the graves of those lost in battle with flowers. The name “Memorial Day” became more common after World War II with the name being federally adopted in 1967 by the U.S. government. Traditionally, today, people visit cemeteries and memorials in memory of those men and women.
KC: “Life for me has not changed much. I still have all my responsibilities at work. All the city employees are still working hard to keep this city running smoothly during this time of crisis and they are doing a great job. Even though we are a public entity, we are doing our best to practice social distancing with our customers to keep them and us as safe as possible.
I have always been into computers and gaming online since around the age of 12 or 13. I guess it started with messing around with our family’s Ti-99/4a. A personal home computer released around 1981. I use to get computer magazines and back then they would publish codes to program games. It was pain stacking and took hours upon hours but in the end, you had a cool game to play.
