Running Out My Miracle

A year ago, I weighed 112, pounds and the doctors gave me a few months to live. Then God did a miracle. Today, I completed my 500th mile this year. Next up, 1,000 miles. We serve an amazing Savior. ~OC

With all the news about the upcoming elections, the economy and COVID19, let’s not forget the millions of victims of human trafficking. ~OC

A Sad Day

I wake up a little sad this morning. I also wake up this morning with one less friend. No, my friend did not pass away. Sadly, my friend disagreed with something I shared in a group last night. Instead of talking about it in person, this friend decided to question my faith and character in a text. This friend decided their opinions were more important than a friendship.

That is really why I am sad today. When did it become okay to kick a friend to the curb when you have different opinions? Unfortunately, I am hearing more and more stories like mine these days. I remember a time when two friends with opposing views, could have a wonderful conversation and still walk away friends. Most of the time better friends. Sadly, those days appear to be slipping away. Today, it has become Them vs. US. Guess what? There is only US. If we continue to walk in a Them vs. US mentality, we will continue live in a divided world.

For me, I will continue to love everyone; even when their opinion differs from mine. I will continue to embrace dialogue. I will continue to embrace different opinions. I will continue to embrace diversity. I promise, I will not kick you to the curb when we disagree. ~OC

Not a Elephant or Donkey

Good morning everyone! This week, I received an email that basically called into question my faith based on someone’s assumptions about my political views. I have never actually had a conversation with this person about my political views, but I guess they decided I did not show enough support for their candidate. I am basically apolitical. I do not belong to a political party. Before each election, I take the time to educate myself on each of the candidates and issues. Then I vote my conscience. I could care less if you support a elephant or donkey. I would rather know about you, your family and how I can help/pray for you. I have chosen not to respond to the email at this time. I will pray about it and see if it is actually worth my time and effort. Thanks for letting me share. ~OC

*True friends stand by you.
*True friends reach out to you.

*True friends love you.
*True friends dance through the storms with you.

Obviously, this is just a small sample. Feel free to share your own list. ~OC

A Prayer for Healthcare Workers

Dear Jesus, you are the giver and sustainer of life. Thank you for all the healthcare workers as they start a new week caring for patients. Keep them safe as they walk through the halls of hospitals this week. Dear Jesus, give them wisdom to know how to care for the patients you have placed in front of them. Especially those emergency cases. Dear Jesus, keep their hearts grounded in your truth. Dear Jesus, never let them lose hope on any patient that you have entrusted to their care. Dear Jesus, at the end of the day give them rest. Thank you Jesus. ~OC
