Sharon Frame wrote: THE EYES OF TRUE LOVE. As I read what Sharon had written it touched my heart deeply. I looked in the mirror yesterday and focused on what needed fixing. I did admire my disarming smile. But far more time was spent bemoaning my dreary, droopy eyes caused by another hard day’s work. Can you relate? Funny how God sees something different when He gazes at me. I am not quite sure we realize just how crazy God is about us. In Isaiah 49:16, He says “I have inscribed you in the palms of my hands.” Only someone who is madly in love with you would take the trouble to tattoo your name in the palm of his hand! If that was not enough. “Keep me as the apple of your eye…” when you look into the pupil of someone’s eyes, what do you see? A small refection of yourself! Look closely next time. You will look back at you. Read your Bible prayerfully.

(Continued from last week) A PRIVATE’S SECRET: Fred Hampton, who belongs to a Buffalo Soldier performing unit in New Mexico, spoke of the disguise that Cathey “was hospitalized several times but was not discovered. Later her illness was so severe they gave her a thorough exam. She went in [wearing] trousers and came out in a dress.”
Military medical examinations were not always administered in the 19th century and when they did occur they were often superficial. The army prohibited females from serving in the military. Historian Rosieleetta Abram posits that Williams gender was in fact, discovered, and she was discharged because of it.
“The Army wouldn’t admit they had made a mistake. Moreno Valley: I found this information while reading about “African American History.” One of our graduates from Moreno Valley High School was the first African American woman to die in combat in the Persian Gulf War. Her name was Adrienne Mitchell. In the City of Moreno Valley, there is a beautiful park named in her honor in the Edgemont area. If you have time go by and see it. The Continental Congress accepted the enlistment of free Negroes in 1776. Congress passed the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery in 1865.
