Memorial Day Weekend

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

Beloved, this weekend is dedicated to the men and women who serve courageously in the United States Armed Forces.  At this time of the year, I think of my dad’s 20 years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps, 1957 to 1977.  Still alive and well at the tender age of 74, my dad’s encouragement and natural example in our home has helped me to become the man that I am.  This weekend, into Monday, is more than just another weekend, with a day off from work, it is to be a memorable time of reflection, honor, and enjoyable time with family and friends.

Please be assured that on this day you are loved, respected and adored!

Bless you today for being a fantastic mother.

My prayer for you today:

May God bless you today

For all that you’ve done,

May His hand be upon you

For creating a life full of joy and fun.

May we celebrate you well

Throughout this great day,

And may you be blessed

For helping your chidren along the way.

We love you very much

You are awesome and kind,

Without you in our lives

We would be left far behind.

So, this is YOUR day

Sit back, relax, and rest,

For you are God’s choice vessel

You are simply the BEST!

May: The Month of Peace!

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Uncategorized

Today is the first day of another wonderful month. This month is recognized as the month of Peace.

Peace is defined as the absence of inner or outer conflict. The Hebrew word – Shalom – was a common Biblical greeting that meant both the absence of conflict AND God’s highest blessing.  As we enter the beginning of another month, allow these two Scriptures (below) to govern you as we collectively Give God the Glory!:

Lev 26:6 (KJV)

“And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.”

Luke 1:79 (KJV)

“To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Getting, and staying, connected to the Prince of Peace – Jesus – is our ultimate goal!
