Notice how our President is true to his word? How he reaches out to those of the other side of the table (i.e., Republicans and our Muslim bothers and sisters) in hopes of a peaceful truce? What a good example for our children to emulate. You see, in politics, there are no permanent enemies and no permanent friends – just permanent interests.
Our President can see the bigger picture: In order to move along the proposed stimulus package to help the United States citizens, and our country’s economic stagnation, we must come together for the common good. In Hebrews 10:25, we are encouraged to assemble ourselves together to solve common problems:
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Thank God that we have President who understands and values biblical principles as he works to solve problems and make decisions. Way to go Mr. President!
What a weekend in Washington, DC, celebrating with my fellow Americans, the inauguration of our 44th President of the United States. A born leader and experienced to usher in much needed change, my family and I had a GREAT time walking the national mall, viewing the U.S. Capitol, watching several anchors and reporters conduct interviews on live TV on the mall, participating in community service projects on Dr. King’s Day, visiting the official Obama stores that sell merchandise, and walking down Pennsylvania Avenue along the blue line (parade route). That was during the day. In the evening, we attended one of three scheduled fabulous inaugural balls. We did this TOGETHER.
What have have witnessed over the past year is exactly what God intends – for His people to come TOGETHER and celebrate one another. To experience UNITY vice division as the 43rd President, and his followers, actively promoted for eight years. We were not created to oppose one another, start wars, constantly fight, and underestimate and devalue other’s potential.
This weekend, God lifted up a man who has been chosed to lead America, and the world: To love one another (1 John 4:7-8) as God loves us – His creation. OUr 44th President gets it and always has. Preparation met opportunity and he will walk in it for the next four years. Will you join us to make this WORLD a better place?
God bless you and God bless America! Give God the Glory!
As we come to a close on another year, I want to take the time to wish you a very, very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year in 2009. As we reflect on the old, and look forward to the new, allow God to quiet your spirit and mind for the coming days. Remember, Jesus is the reason for this season….so rest and be still as you make necessary adjustments in your life for 2009.
For example, 2008 was the year of simplicity for the Johnson family. We simplified our lives by getting organized, planned better and took our time to make informative decisions.
In 2009, my prayer for my family will center on financial management due to our dismal economy. Not only will we cut back on unnecessary and worthless expenses, we will better manage what we have. God’s blessings extend into our finances and they must be managed according to His Word. This is my prayer. Please do the same within your family.
God bless you and enjoy God’s blessings in 2009.
Congratulations President-elect Obama. Well done.
Today is a new and exciting day!
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Change is, and was, needed and will inevitably
happen. What we experienced on November 4th was phenominal and God-ordained.
As I’ve stated since last January, President-elect Obama has the favor of God on his
life and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it.
And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his
mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature,
and in favour with God and man.
The global excitement of his election is a clear indication that God Almighty is in the
midst of his campaign, thoughts,ideas and promises.
The voters have spoken loud and clear, Obama is our catalyst for change in the
United States of America. Let’s support his leadership, candor, professionalism,
demeanor, excellence, Godly spirit and attention to detail. Brace yourself for a
tremendous move of God in our midst.
The best is yet to come to unify our world in the years to come.
Are you a fan of literacy? I believe that you are. Statistics show that higher literacy rates lead to higher education and ultimately to a higher quality of life. Isn’t that a great goal to have?
Join me this month in promoting reading and literacy and my many attempts to get groups to read and enjoy great books together. With the release of our new Study Guide, I am encouraging small groups to gather within their local churches, book clubs, libraries, workplaces, organizations and homes.
Will you join me?
This is the day that the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.
This Scripture reminds me daily about how exciting it is to be alive and well. As we remember our loved
ones and colleagues that were lost on this day seven years ago, let’s celebrate their lives in lieu of
mourning their untimely and undeserved deaths. I remember watching that day’s events while in mid-town Manhattan (New York City), from Three Times Square on the 20th floor, in 2001 and how suddenly the events transpired.
Celebrate life today and live it in remembrance of those who were lost on 9-11-2001.
In a couple of weeks from today, we will enter into yet another change in seasons. As the vegetation (plants, trees, grass) as well as the air quality and temperature change to accomodate God’s perfect will, so should we.
We should change and make adjustments in life based our individual growth, development and maturity. Have you grown in 2008? Have you achieved your goals and dreams for this year that you set in January? If so, outstanding! If not, change and adjust today in preparation for the next few months ahead.
Hello all. Well, we just returned from two more dynamic and progessive cities: Miami and Nassau Bahamas. What a joy to meet such wonderful people – that is why I write.

Borders Books, Afro-In Books and Cafe, Community Church of God, 100% Christian BookShop, The Christian BookShop and Bahamas Faith Ministries International treated me as their guest over the past six to seven days. Mr. Baughn Miller, Bahamas office of tourism, Religious Market, was my tour guide in Nassau, the capital of the Islands of the Bahamas. Wonderful trip and thanks to all!
Our July book tour is well underway. Join us next in Miami and the Bahamas Island. View our itinerary page for complete details. In Seattle, July 2-7, we experienced some dynamic events during The Links, Inc. National Assembly, Joy Unlimited Christian Book Store, and Berean Love Fellowship. The people that we met were phenominal.
