Women at Heart!

Valerie Burton, Columbia  Metropolitan Convention Center, September 20, 2014
Valerie Burton was in Columbia this weekend as the keynote speaker at the Women at Heart event. It was a free heart health forum and exhibition. Valorie is a life coach, author, and motivational speaker. She is also the founder of the Coaching and Positive Psychology Institute (CaPP). Even though we never met, our paths ran parallel because of her family and mine. My mother spoke very highly of Valerie. If Valerie is anything like her mom she is a beautiful person. I would like for you when you have the time to read some of her books and follow her web page.  She is very encouraging and inspirational. Thanks 'DV' for the picture!

Cece Winans - More Than What I Wanted

Thank you!

We see miracles happen everyday but we do not notice them until they affect us or someone close to us.  I want to take the time to say thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Bates for being a miracle.  To God be the glory! God bless you and be with you, always!

Prayer for the Sick

Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, we turn to You in this time of illness. O dearest Comforter of the Troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. Dear God, we place our worries in Your hands. We place our sick under Your care and humbly ask that You restore Your servant to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge your holy will and know that whatsoever You do, You do for the love of us.  Amen
