~Always the third Monday in January~
~Will be Celebrated on Monday January 18th,
2010 & Monday January 17th, 2011

My parents raised me to believe that I could be anything I wanted to be and do anything I wanted. They also
taught me that the color of a persons skin didn't matter. This may sound very naive to you. But that is always
the way I have felt. We are all created equal in the eyes of the Lord.

Each one of us is God's work of art!!!

We are all His children.

Remember the song from when you were younger

Jesus loves the little children

all the children of the world.......

Red, and yellow, black and white

they are precious in his sight

Jesus loves the little children of the world."

Some people are born "color blind". Oh, that we could raise our children to be "color blind in their heart".
Let us strive to be the kind of people who look at the inside and only see the best in others. As a Christian
I am glad that the Lord loves me unconditionally. He sees my heart and knows the secret thoughts
along with my past BUT He loves us in spite of it all.

"Beloved, let us love one another. For love is of God and anyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.
He that loveth not, knoweth not God for God is Love. So beloved, let us love one another."
~1 John 4: 7 & 8~

Do YOU know your neighbors? God's Word says to "Love your neighbor as yourself". WOW. If we don't even
know our neighbors what does that say about ourselves. A real example of a GOOD Neighbor is the
story of the GOOD Samaritan that Jesus told us. Luke 10:29-37

"But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering said,
'A certain [man] went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his
raiment, and wounded [him], and departed, leaving [him] half dead. And by chance there came down a
certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when
he was at the place, came and looked [on him], and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as
he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion [on him],And went to [him], and
bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and
took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave [them] to the host,
and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay
thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?'
And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, 'Go, and do thou likewise'."

We can learn so very much from the Word of God and from the lessons of Jesus.
So in the words of Jesus
"Go and do likewise".

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

~Information Below is From The World Book Encyclopedia~

In 1929, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia. The black civil rights leader,
minister and Nobel Peace Prize recipient (1964) was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968.

King, Martin Luther, Jr. (1929-1968), an African-American Baptist minister, was the main leader of the civil
rights movement in the United States during the 1950's and 1960's. He had a magnificent speaking ability,
which enabled him to effectively express the demands of African Americans for social justice. King's eloquent
pleas won the support of millions of people--blacks and whites--and made him internationally famous.
He won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize for leading nonviolent civil rights demonstrations.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Day is a United States national holiday honoring the birthday of civil rights leader
Martin Luther King, Jr. The holiday is observed each year on the third Monday in January. King's actual
birthday was Jan. 15, 1929. On Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, most government offices and schools close
for the day, but many private businesses remain open.

A campaign to establish a holiday honoring King began soon after he was assassinated in 1968. In 1983,
Congress made his birthday a federal holiday, first celebrated on Jan. 20, 1986. Today, the holiday
is observed by the federal government and by nearly every state.
