Aqualyn Toi Jones speaks about the : “School of Hard Knocks.” I have a list of pet peeves that seems to grow as I grow older. Number seven on that list is speaking to a customer service rep who cannot answer my question. It’s kind of like an oxymoron.  The whole point of asking a question is to receive a response. It’s impolite to not answer and when a request seems unheard, it’s easy to feel ignored or insignificant, when we go to God in prayer, we go expecting an answer. We desperately want to know that He hears us and that He cares, when we inquire about the deepest issues of our hearts, we need to know that there is an answer and that we will receive it.  Jesus promises that if you ask, you will receive. If you seek, you will find, and if you knock, the door will be open for you. (Matthew 7:7). We have a promise that our prayers will be heard “AND” answered. Read your Bible prayerfully and think.

That includes brunch and a Mission Inn Foundation Walking Tour. I would like to encourage you to take or send a young person this year, so that they may know who Booker T.

Washington was and what he meant to his/her history. There are so many of our young people that have no clue as to what a rich history we have.
