International Women's Day

If you appreciate the right to vote, the ability to go to school, freedom to pursue the career of your choice, thank those that have gone before you and remember those that aren’t as fortunate to have won the lottery and live in America.

Today, I went to google something and they had one of their different main images to recognize a holiday…didn’t know it was holiday. Clicked on it and discovered it’s International Women’s Day.  It's a day to commemorate the advancements made in the rights of women all over the world.

I don’t know about you, but when I see stories of what women go through in other countries, fighting to be able to go to school, or even for the right to drive.  I feel blessed, and a little guilty, that I take my freedoms as an American woman for granted.

You know the bible says, if two or more on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you.  (Matthew 18:19)

So maybe you could join me in prayer tonight before dinner and pray for those women that aren’t as as fortunate to have the freedoms that you and I so often take for granted.

Thanks.

“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed.” –Isaiah 61:1

Amazing Grace

I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to understand Grace.  I heard a pastor once describe it as; God’s unmerited favor, his ability to do in you, what you can’t do on your own.

This is the perfect example of that.  It’s a note from Facebook Friend, 

Pam:“I have been clean & sober for 13 years, 3 months & 6 days. I was hopelessly addicted to drugs, my 3 kids & I had lost our home & ended up living in a tent along the creek. I knew I needed help but didn't know who to turn to. I was fooling with the dials on a small radio, trying to find music for my kids and I came across KLOVE and the song, Amazing Grace was playing. Something inside me changed that day. I picked myself up, spent two weeks kicking drugs down by that creek, found work, got another home and now, 13 years later I am the owner of a small, but successful janitorial service. I'm clean & sober, my kids are grown & strong & life is good. I still listen to KLOVE every single day and the music you play continues to inspire me with each song.

Thank you KLOVE, for helping me to find God & through God's love find my strength.”

Now that is truly Amazing Grace.  You made her story of Grace possible if you have supported K-LOVE.  Thank you for supporting a radio station that plays songs that have meaning and change people’s lives.

What a privilege to play these songs.
