    heart to that someone you love Trust is a big thing and when its not there it can be hard Trust is an earned thing Every part of a partnership requires work In relationships there are times when grace is needed sometimes in abundance Realize that there are two imperfect people in a relationship and that goes a long way in establishing a foundation for the future Oct 29 2013 9 notes nerd corner Meals Memories Coming And Going I hate it when a favorite place to eat closes Many places where I loved to eat have come and gone over the years A friend of mine had to close her lunch spot recently There s word today that another Chattanooga area spot my wife and I enjoy is apparently closing too The ice cream and hamburger place where my wife and I had our first date closed a few years ago Owning and operating a restaurant is not for the feint of heart For those who keep things going I salute them There are good memories of places I wish I could have one more meal I am a sentimental person there are great memories of many places that have come and gone Oct 29 2013 3 notes chattanooga food restaurants The Importance of Remembering It s been one year since Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast of the United States It devastated parts of New Jersey and New York The storm impacted people whose lives were forever changed Soon it will be over a year since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary ended lives of children and their teachers along with the gunman for the survivors they will never be the same again Not too long ago we remembered the twelfth anniversary of 9 11 2001 when bad men flew planes into buildings and killed thousands Individuals have important events that have special meaning Births anniversaries deaths and other life events are all things that should be marked and recognized There is pain in remembering some events like breakups job losses and the like It s important to remember these sorts of things For the survivors its important for us to remember Anytime there is a tragedy or loss knowing someone remembers and is still concerned is a comfort When someone passes away remembering them fondly helps us grieve Personal items can keep their memory in our minds Remembering loved ones can help keep them with us in our hearts Remembering hopefully will inspire us to make our world better so events like Sandy Hook will not happen again Situations like Superstorm Sandy are out of our control but we need to remember what we went through so we can manage future situations better People deal with things differently They have coping mechanisms that are uniquely theirs Some people who experience such a devastating loss want to forget or put it out of their minds and their wishes must be respected One of my favorite songs says Don

    it We live in a world where bullies are getting away with that sort of thing in real life and online so we need to be different Calling someone names is so elementary school Nov 29 2013 7 notes Ideas For Teaching Christmas To Kids A fellow blogger was asking how to throw a Christmas celebration for some young folks at her church Having been a young and old person during the holidays here is the advice I gave her 1 The Crismon Tree In most churches that decorates their worship space they have a tree with ornaments that are called crismons Those crismons have different meanings and are symbols for Christ 2 Nativity Scene Have kids dress up as the Holy Family Shepherds and animals that might have been there in Bethlehem We know the story to be different in reality but it gives the kids a kind of an idea of what it was like 3 Incorporate Santa Santa Claus is taken from an actual saint of the church Saint Nicholas Learning more about who he was and his ministry would be informative for kids 4 Giving Canned Goods Many food banks are in need year round but kids could learn the act of giving as God gave us Jesus Food is a way to spread the love to those in need 5 Celebrate Advent The season prior to Christmas is a great way to teach about the coming of the Christ Child Its a good time for reflection and centering oneself for the real meaning of the holiday I am not a holiday expert but these might be good for you to use in planning a spiritually centered Christmas holiday season Nov 29 2013 3 notes Christmas Advent Celebration Holidays Church Christianity Nov 29 2013 7 notes diabetes Happy Black Friday Or Something Like That Right now millions of shoppers are out at the malls and big box stores fighting to get some great deals Many have camped outside retailers for days in anticipation of this morning They are shopping for electronics toys clothes and the like In yesterdays newspaper there were ads with all sorts of door busting deals just for the taking You have to time it out to be there for the best shot of a bargain I hope there will be safety in the chaos and that no one will get into a fight over a TV or a tablet Today is one of the busiest shopping days of the year so it isn t for the feint of heart In the past there have been reports of injuries of people rushing into a store Today I will be at home and glad not to be in all that mess Best wishes to those who are Nov 29 2013 6 notes black friday shopping christmas gifts Nov 28 2013 6 notes me selfie mypictures Greetings to my newest followers Thank you for your interest in my little blog Nov 28 2013 Nov 28
