The Children of the Light

Walk while you have the light,
lest darkness come upon you,
for he that walks in darkness
knows not where he goes.

While you have light,
believe in the light
that you may be the
children of the light.

~John 12: 35-36

Of Note: What if a million people saw the light at the exact same minute. Wonder if 10 million did? What would it take to turn the world from a place where hatred prevailed to one where love predominated? A multi-faith movement called "A Million Minutes for Peace" plans to mobilize the power of prayer and put this question to the test on the UN International Day of Peace, September 21st. Check out and sign up to participate in one minute of prayer next Tuesday at noon. The requirements are simply to pray for peace for one minute in whatever way is comfortable and from whatever faith is observed. It's FREE, it's SIMPLE and it's GLOBAL.

Today's Weather Report: What do you know? I mentioned that we had not seen rain for a few days, and it returned pronto. Yesterday was just about perfect with temperatures in the upper 50's, a light rain in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon. With some painting to do, I'm hoping for the same pattern today. Misty's leg continues to heal, and she no longer limps but now she has a strange rash. Seems that there is something always going on with these two dogs ever since they graced our door. Our grandson, Noah, was born yesterday morning and weighed over 8 pounds. My son sent a precious picture of the newborn being held by his two smiling brothers, who sported tee shirts that read "The Bigger Brother" and "The Biggest Brother." Somehow, even 9 months pregnant, Cheryl managed to pull off coordinating the clothing of her older sons for the big day.
