The Blessedness of Believing
A Devotional Journey of Life’s Lessons and God’s Promises
Celebrating the opportunity to visit with my high school friend, David and his family was an unforgettable treasure! The memories, great fish fry, the surprise appearance of our Bennett High School yearbook and laughter were an elixir! Friends the opportunity to reconnect with a dear friend and his precious loved ones really blessed our souls. They were so gracious and kind. It felt like a family reunion. David reminded me that we last time we visited each other was in 1979. I was on my way to grad school, he’d be starting college. Soon his career was being jumpstarted in news and broadcasting. It’s 2009, this is certainly evident that time is fleeting! I’ll surely have to share a post about the importance of staying connected and reaching out to those that have impacted our life for the better. We can celebrate God’s faithfulness over our life’s journey.
Friends, I contend it’s a must do in our lives. Consider reaching out to some positive friends from the past, you’ll be surprised at how revived you feel. David and I shared that it’s probable that there are more days behind us, then ahead. But, indeed we’ve got lots of living yet to do.

“On July 2, 1829 the Oblate Sisters of Providence was founded by Mother Mary Lange, OSP, and Rev. James Nicholas Joubert, SS as the first congregation of women religious of African descent. This was the beginning of a legacy that has thrived over the past 179 years in 25 cities in the United States, Cuba, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and most recently Africa. ”

Finally, meet this remarkable order of The Oblate Sisters Of Providence. They are a unique order of nuns that are of African descent. They’ve unselfishly dedicated their lives to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, providing solid educational opportunities and enriching the lives of those in impoverished communities in the United States and abroad for over 179 years.
From My Heart to Yours!
