Your Person of the Year

Maybe you saw this too on the news…and at first thought….huh…

They do this every year…maybe you saw it yesterday…Time Magazines 2011 Person of the Year,

 

“The Protestor’

 

The front cover is of a nameless, female protester dressed in a traditional head scarf.  It’s supposed to represent both the men and women around the world — and particularly in the Middle East — who risked their lives to bring about transformational change.

Okay…now it makes sense. 

Wondering what your person of the year would be…

For me its friends.

Several friends got me through the hardest year of my life…also the best…it was one of those years that you get to really live how God promises to turn a pile of ashes into beauty. 

They cured loneliness, held my hand…helped me have a yard sale, pack up my possessions, and loaded my moving van up so I could start over, just me and my kids. 

Maybe you have one of those Person of Year’s in your life this year…I’d put friends on the front cover…

Friendship  is a way we can experience God in action.  The bible says “a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin”

They're Coming Home

So you might have seen in the news yesterday…that the President officially ended the war in Iraq

That means it’s time to welcome our heroes back home. 

Yesterday mentioned how in an effort to show my appreciation for a soldier I rant into at the grocery store, I tried to pay for his groceries, but he wouldn’t let me.  Too proud.  Should have just handed the cashier some money secretly.

Wondering what the best way to show your appreciation…to say thanks and have it stick.
