Hope: Do you ever feel alone, Like no one knows you are there, or Like you don’t have the help you need for what your are facing?
Well, You are not alone and you are not going unnoticed. You have a place to go that offers shelter, protection, comfort, resources and assurance. You have the ultimate safe place. From a loving, caring, God – Who knows every detail of your life. You do have to do something though. I’ve found that you have to be willing to stop trying to control the situations and circumstances around you, and you have turn to Him when everything around you seems unsteady. Remember what the ministry says often, God Hears and He answers.
“O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings!” ~ Psalm 61:1-4
Praying for Bowen Matthew… His father is the lead singer for Sanctus Real – Meet his mom Sarah, his two sisters in this beautiful story
Yesterday morning’s update: The doctors told us this morning that they believe Bowen is strong enough to start weaning him off life support today. They don’t know for certain that it’ll work until they try, but the worst case scenario (for today) is that he’ll have to stay on it for a while longer. All of the doctors seem very optimistic about his condition in light of what he’s been through. They’re going to start the process at 10am this morning, and we should know how it’s going by this evening.
Unemployed? Employees, job-seekers to meet at job fair Today from 10a-2pat the Pitzer Garrison Civic Center in Lufkin, TX! More than 20 employers will be available Thursday at “Job Fair 2010” to offer local job-seekers information on employment opportunities. There are employment opportunities in retail, the medical field, and manufacturing. Sandra Hopson, business services specialist at WorkForce Solutions, said many of the organizations have several openings.
Sandra Hopkins went on to say, “The fair is a good way for people to meet different employers, and it’s a good way for employers to find people who match their openings,” Hopson said. There are many different variables.” Anyone who plans on showing up for the job fair should have copies of their resume to give to prospective employers. They should also dress appropriately and be prepared to ask questions to potential employers. Rather than become frustrated at the amount of competition or lack of success during a job fair, Hopson encouraged job seekers to attend one of WorkForce Solutions’ workshops to brush up on their skills. Hopkins said, “It’s all about keeping a positive attitude and projecting that to the employer.” ~ (Lufkin Daily)

The 1.1 million light-up rings were part of a promotional offering between April 2009 and June of this year or were offered during parent-teacher association conventions. They came in blue, green, purple, yellow and pink. The 120,000 toy glasses, shaped like stars, were part of birthday packages. http://bit.ly/caSznm
