When Dr. Rudolph Hendricks and I attended the 34th Annual Citywide Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at Temple Israel this year, it was a natural setting to remember and pray for friends like you around the world, for PEACE, JUSTICE and WELL BEING. While we may be disturbed with the economic condition of our nation and the world, hunger, unemployment, poverty, diseases, sickness and the like, yet we are comforted with scripture which speaks of a divine child as the source for healing, wholeness and peace. (ISAIAH 9) His name is JESUS, THE CHRIST, GOD’S SON. How we do love and adore HIM!
Everyone at our household is healthy and happy and we wish the same for your household. The three of us enjoy life together. Alexander is a high school senior. He is developing nicely and has been accepted at King’s College where he will matriculate in Computer Science and Para-legal studies. He enjoys his job as a swimming life-guard.
Leila serves as a social work Case Manager with the county. She is a beautiful mother, a protective daughter, goal oriented and purpose-driven.
I continue to enjoy retirement with never a dull moment. I blog, (See http://herronspeaks.blogspot.com) and am very much involved in church ministry for senior citizens.
I said to the keeper of the gates, “give me a light that I may go out and tread the unknown.” He said to me, “Go out young man and put your hand into the hand of God, that shall be better than light and safer than a known way.”
May it be so with you.
