One Love….

(If you want to listen to THIS video---go down and pause the music player on the right column.)

Sometimes we FORGET that we are all connected.

We are all “IN THIS” together.

We are all ONE family.

We are all sisters and brothers.

Everyone's a relative…

Everything is RELATIVE.




I guess there  comes a time in life when you start to see the ELDERS in your family go,

you start to actually SEE the LIFE on your face,


you came to the realization that you CAN’T SLOW IT DOWN.

I have arrived at that point.

I have arrived at a point in my life when “mortality” seems CLOSE TO HOME.

Too close.

My children are growing older…as are my parents…

As am I.

My grandparents are growing older and their health is failing.

It FORCES me to really LOOK at  life .

It reminds me of  1 Tim 5:1-8:

1Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, 2older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.

3Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 4But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 5The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. 6But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. 7Give the people these instructions, too, so that no one may be open to blame. 8If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.


Today I pray that God eases the pain of life for our elders.

May he grant them a SERENE PASSAGE.


May he grant all those who surround them….
