” Pennies”                       Apr 23, 2004

A few months while at work I decided to buy a couple of piggy banks to start saving change. I bought 3  for myself, and decided that I would put one up and use the other two for my quartes, dimes, and nickels.

Yesterday when I went to my room to add change to my banks, I looked over at the “pennies” which was on my night stand, while the quarters, dimes and nickels “sit in a lovely glass piggy bank, on the entertainment stand. I thought to myself, how easy it is for us to discriminate. When I thought about what I didnt like about pennies, and why they were sitting seperate from my other coins, I realized that ‘I felt” they didnt have as much value as the others did. They seem to be a “pess” always on the floor being stepped on, just in the way. But that gives me no right no mistreat them. They are all coins, why should they sit in a corner somewhere?  Would I want someone to do me that way? No!

Its a shame how easy we discriminate. I’m guilty of it just with the change I have. I can even remember one day this week, one fell and I just looked at it, never bending down to pick it up. Had it been a dime, quarter,  or nickel I would have snapped my knees trying to get to it. That ole piggy I put up, Im going to get it out and begin saving pennies.

I love pennies. Now that I think about it you can find a penny  faster than you can find a quarter, dime or nickel. How dare I mistreat a penny and put them on a scale against the other coins.

So my question to you is, what can you think of NOW, that you discriminate against? What are you going to do about it? Has this helped you to be more aware ?

The bible says: James 2

Favoritism Forbidden 

1My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism. 2Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. 3If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” 4have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

5Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? 6But you have insulted the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? 7Are they not the ones who are slandering the noble name of him to whom you belong?
8If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,”[1] you are doing right. 9But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 10For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 11For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,”[2] also said, “Do not murder.”[3] If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.
12Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, 13because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!

Home Invasions…..teens not making it out ALIVE …From the desk of Cree

kid to save

Hey,

This will be my rambling blog.

Went to Red Lobster with my Sisters and God Sisters last Friday, then to a bar for Karaoke. I was feeling good that night never knew I was about to catch a cold. I knew as soon as the weather broke this was going to happen. I knew something was wrong because I kept on having sleeping spells. I’ll get real sleepy and have these sudden “gotta lay down NOW” episodes and will have them all day. That next day… I was sick. OH well its not that bad, because I kept an eye on it. When I get like this.. I hate talking, and being around people. I have to get myself together. I think I become mean, and outspoken…. * not good*  Anyway, this guy sung to me.. omg.. I was so embarrassed. I’m shy, and my sisters took photos of me  while they enjoyed the moment.. I wanted to disappear and be home. LOL I can’t take attention. Its enough my personality is bubbly, but that’s controlled ATTENTION… he caught me totally off guard. He sung the whole song to me, spot light was on and everything, after wards he brought us all a beer. So sweet. 🙂

There are a lot of home invasions going on here in Detroit. People are tired of this, they have license to carry a concealed weapon, not only that BUT THEY ARE POPPIN THESE INTRUDERS left and right. These young men are dying in these peoples home. There was a time when break ins were happening, and the intruders were doing the killing or leaving them for dead. More people are on the look out, and when they hear something strange, they’re not waiting to see what’s going on. They’re pulling the trigger on these young goons. I don’t blame them. I hate that these kids don’t know consequences. Some were never taught, and they’re dying right in their victims homes. These parents are going to LEARN. Quit taking up for your bad kids.

Here’s the story. The part that killed me was when the boy’s God mother spoke…

Stop being so quick to say ” Cant nobody Judge Me”… people are only trying to help you. Trust me LaCrease won’t be knocking on your door setting appointments for me to talk you out of stupid mess. But I will see you in passing and run some sense in your head….. after that… there is nothing I can do to save you. I’ve had this same talk with plenty of people, and they always come back and say…. “I should have listened to you”.

I hope this serve as a lesson to these young teens…. “Aint NOBODY playing no more”.

Be Blessed

Where works of the flesh exists, there is NO joy
