While reading my journal, I read this and would like to share it with you: “One of God’s Great Don’ts.”

Fretting means to become vexed or worried. It is one thing to say “Fret not,” but a very different thing to have such a disposition that you find yourself able not to fret. It sounds so easy to talk about “resting in the Lord” and “waiting patiently for Him” until the nest is upset--- until we live, as so many are doing in turmoil and anguish; is it possible then to rest in the Lord? If this “don’t does not work there, it will work nowhere. This “don’t” must work in days of perplexity as well as in days of peace, or it never will work. And if it will not work in your particular case, it will not work in anyone else’s case. Resting in the Lord does not depend on external circumstances at all, but on your relationship to God Himself (Psalm 37:8 (rv).

This past Saturday, The National Council of Negro Women Inc.

Moreno Valley Section celebrated 36 years of recognizing People in the community. This started with a great lady of our yester-years Mary McLeod Bethune. Mrs. Bethune left a great legacy for us to pass on, so let us leave this to our family and others: I leave you love, I leave you hope, I leave you the challenge of developing confidence in one another, I leave a thirst for education, I leave you a respect for the use of power, I leave you faith, I leave you racial dignity, I leave you desire to live harmoniously with your fellow man, I leave you finally, a responsibility to our young people. She said that “The world around us really belongs to youth, for youth will take over its future management. Our children must never lose their zeal for building a better world.

Also Ms. Othetta Glover Co- Convener for Southern California Area NCNW spoke about the sister hood and the Legacy. The mistress of ceremonies was Anita Weatherspoon of Gardena. Mrs. Mattie Grant was in town from Maryland. Teri McHenry wore many hats for the program. Mr. Curtis Gardner, Ms. Waudieur Rucker-Hughes, and Ms. Helen Moore were given awards. A job well done Moreno Valley Section of the National Council of Negro Women Inc.

Pastor and Lady Julio Andujo and the Amos Temple family recently celebrated their Rededication to the Lord with these words Rededicate, Revive, Restore and Repair (Psalm 51:10). Invited to share in the celebration was Bishop Craig W. Johnson and the Cathedral of Praise International Ministries Family, with Patrice Morris of the praise team.

Be Blessed!
