Weekly Calendar

 All I want for Christmas…

 All of us may have developed a list of things we want for Christmas.  I have been thinking through what to place on my list.  Here goes…

 I look forward to celebrating ten years of marriage with Sara in 2015.  Relationships require a lot of work, patience, persistence, and commitment.  I am grateful that God brought us together and that we are a blessing to each other.  I pray the Lord will give us good health and a long time to enjoy each other, make a difference in our church and community, and see our grandchildren grow and mature.  

 I welcome seeing our sons (and daughters) respected as African American men and allowed to raise their children in an environment where they will not be judged, but free to grow and thrive, exist and live, support their families, and enjoy the bounty of God’s good earth.
