I was told about a person who was typing on an ancient typewriter and the “e” wasn’t working. She was working on a Sunday School lesson on “love”:

"Though I spak with th tongus of mn and of angls, and hav not charity, I am bcom a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal."

She was really irritated with that machine! Out of 26 letters only one failed to work, but it ruined the entire lesson.

Do you ever think you are not important, that you have little to offer, and if you don’t show up, no one will miss you?

This is the time of year when there will be many new beginnings. We will inaugurate a new president, and state officials will make a new beginning. Here in our county, we have a new superintendent of schools and other elected officials. Make a pledge to yourself to become active in your church, in your family and in your community.

You cast your vote and helped elect these officials. Now, support them by knowing what they do, and why they do it. We have all kinds of governing boards and most of us have no idea what they do. Hospital, library, schools, parks--all have boards that represent us.

Show some interest in what is happening around here.

Remember the old typewriter . . . The next time you think that you can’t make a difference, remember that, though there are many Calhouners, one empty seat . . . YOURS . . . can not be filled by anyone else.

CARE! Help keep our county on the map!

Day Seventy: January 13, 2009.

8 days left until inauguration day.

For President-Elect Barack Obama to make wise and godly choices regarding openings in our nation’s judicial system.

Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right.  --Psalm 106:3.

Mighty God, You alone rule and judge what is right in our world. Even though our systems strive to lift up and exalt individuals, You are our judge, choosing those You want to lift up and bringing down those You want to debase. Thank You, Lord, that You have all authority this day and every day.

Precious God, we pray that in the days to come You will move in President-Elect Barack Obama’s life to help him make wise and intelligent choices in selecting the individuals to serve in our judicial systems. As he chooses men and women who will influence laws and will interpret the Constitution, give him great discernment in these appointments. Let Your purposes be accomplished, O God, in the name of Jesus, amen.
