Martin Luther King, Jr.

"All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence."

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."

"Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see."

THANK YOU, Dr. King!

My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountainside,
Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees,
Sweet freedom’s song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our fathers’ God, to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing;
Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King.

Words: Samuel F. Smith, 1832

"I have a dream today...that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."  ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

second anniversary

"The second anniversary of the devastating earthquake must be a call to action."  Cecilia Millan, Country Director in Haiti, Oxfam International

"In Port-au-Prince - still home to 800 tent cities that occupy virtually every public space - many of the earthquake victims are also asking how their government appears to have accomplished so little."  Ingrid Arnesen, Wall Street Journal, 1/12/12

"Back to normal in Haiti. That's an interesting question."  Matthew Moore, Compassion International, 1/12/12

yesterday was the second anniversary of the unimaginable earthquake in Haiti. so many lives changed forever. loved ones have been lost, homes destroyed, the little possessions that they had - gone! i can not fathom the loneliness, exhaustion, and weariness of having so little before and losing so much. there is no "normal" for the Haitian population. there is only the hope of some sense of order back into their individual lives.

please join me and pray for the Haitian people.  prayer is the greatest gift!  and only God truly knows what the Haitian people need. "Earth's troubles fade in the light of heaven's hope."  ~ Billy Graham

"For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it."  Romans 8:24-25

Tim Tebow threw for 316 yards in yesterday's game...
Averaged 31.6 yards per completion...
And 31.6 percent of America was watching as he threw the winning touchdown pass...
