I read this once in one of my many poem books. “The True Thanksgiving.” Many people entertain only vague notions about Thanksgiving, just as they do about faith. They confuse faith with optimism, will power, presumption, imagination, and all sorts of other things.

A doctor tells his patient that, but for his faith, he never would have come through his illness. Somehow the patient was “just sure” he would recover. A smiling mother encourages her married daughter to “have faith and everything will turn out alright.” But faith is simply believing, and faith in God is believing God; believing what He has said. Faith is based on the written Word of God. Look at Romans 10:17.


Moreno Valley the Wright’s Community Business Development Corporation seminar by owner Ms. Linda D. Wright was a top of the line seminar for churches, non-profits, grants and other organizations. This Seminar was educational and it gave a lot of information to take home with you. If you missed it you missed a lot of information to help your different programs. Job well done Linda.

After eleven years Moreno Valley’s public library service division manager Becky Guillan announced that she will retire from her position effective December 25, 2009. She was hired as a librarian in 1998 when the City assumed library operations from Riverside County. Guillan has moved up through the ranks to retire as Library Services Division Manager. She stated that it has been a distinct pleasure to serve the City of Moreno Valley for the past eleven years. “As I start this new chapter in my life I am proud to have worked with such dedicated staff members and volunteers,” she stated. The City of Moreno Valley wishes her the best.

I pray that this Thanksgiving is the best you have ever have; that you help someone in need of your love and your understanding. It will always come back in some kind of form. Let me leave you with this. There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore… and who always will. So don’t worry about people from your past, there is a reason why they didn’t make it into your future.
