Following the Drum Major, Martin Luther King Jr.

Excerpted from an article by by Tiffany Stuart

Forty years after the death of Martin Luther King Jr., the drumbeat of his life message still resounds.

Embracing the drum major within ourselves is beneficial. It's part of our God-given design. King exhorted believers to pursue greatness by being first—first to love, to make peace, to seek righteousness and to serve. Reverend King gave his life's service to humanity through all of these avenues.
As Reverend King wrapped up his sermon, he thanked God for the opportunities he had to witness changes in the law and in society. He talked about what he wanted to be remembered for, not for his car or education, but rather for his love for others. His words spoken four decades ago still challenge us today to serve:

Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's 'Theory of Relativity' to serve. You don't have to know the Second Theory of Thermal Dynamics in Physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love and you can be that servant.
We can ask ourselves the same Good Samaritan question: If we don't stop to help others
In his final sermon, "I've Been To the Mountaintop," the day before he was gunned down, Dr. King focused on the Good Samaritan's choice:
The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But---the Good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is distinguished as a day to "Remember, Celebrate, Act! A Day On…Not a Day Off. "In honor of his life of compassion and service, volunteers all across America get involved on that day, touching the lives of the incarcerated, the homeless, the illiterate and the brokenhearted. They visit, feed, listen and love those in need around them, what will happen to them Who needs your time, talent, words of encouragement today?

As a member of God's marching band, we can look for ways to honor Dr. King's legacy by loving and serving

 

HOT CHOCOLATE 

 A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups - porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite -telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.  

When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: "Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.  While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you're drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate.  In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups and then you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this:  Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and position in society are the cups.  They are just tools to hold and contain life.  The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us.

God makes the hot chocolate - man chooses the cups.

The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have.  Live simply.  Love generously.  Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And enjoy your hot chocolate!:)


*77 a false e-mail making the rounds again.

There is an email that is being circulated puporting that if one, while driving, is asked to pull over by an unmarked police car one should call *77 on their cell phone to reach the local police dispatcher. This is not true and dialing 911 would be more effective. Proceeding to a public site such as a gas station, shopping center main entrance or a police station before pulling over would be the most prudent


Let's Continue The Campaign


Let's keep the campaign to leave those twinkle lights up until spring when the days are longer and and the light is brighter.You can take down the Christmas decorations but leave the"winter twinkle lights".We need something to brighten up these dingy days . Call your neighbors and community leaders to encourage them to leave the lights up .

Hey Peggy Jo,

I see Birmingham and Royal Oak still have their lights up--Yea for them!!

Hi Peggy Jo,

1ST. LYNETTE'S TIME SOLUTIONS (The Answer To Your Person Assistance including Tender Care
        House Sitting) SUBMITS THIS TIDBIT FOR YOUR READERS:Submitting thoughts on harmful bacteria

Microbiologist Amy Karen of Nelson Labs says nearly all
of the handbags tested were not only high in bacteria, but high in harmful kinds of bacteria. Pseudomonas can cause eye  infections, staphylococcus aurous can cause serious skin infections, and salmonella and e-coli found on the handbags could make people very sick.

Experts say you should think of your handbag the same way you would a pair of shoes.

Lynette.

Dear Lynette and readers,

Peggy Jo,

You asked about the Bucket List movie. I just saw "The Bucket List" this past weekend.
Enjoyed the relationship developing between Jack Nicholson and Morgan
Freeman. Jack was the usual "Jack" and Morgan Freeman continues to
play the best of characters as in all his movies.I thoght the
newspaper critics were way off. Good movie!

Carol C.


Hi Peggy Jo,
 
I saw "The Bucket List" on Friday night.  The movie was a delight!
Too bad Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman didn't team up years ago. 
No doubt, we'd have been entertained.

And don't forget Sean Hayes (from Will and Grace).  Only he
could/would put up working for someone like Jack in the movie.

Happy New Year.

Hey Peggy Jo,
Who ever  wrote to  take their name  off your list because he did not need   that spiritual junk is selfish and a poor soul.   A soul without spirit is like a car without gas.  He was not brave enough to sign his name.  Your beautiful stories and spiritual scripts have been so up lifting.  I am not ashamed to say my name--- Judy Tahfs RN---Pinktulips.   It amazes me how people can be so negative as that what their heart holds---and thats what they wake up to pure negativity and than to be so childish not to sign their name---

Judy.

Thanx Judy You're an inspiration to me. I need to know what the PJSN readers like to see in the newsletter. So I really appreciate your comments. Peace and Blessings and good health in the new year.

Peggy Jo


Dear Peggy jo,

Saw Bucket List last weekend.  Thought it was a really good movie.  Very touching and funny and sad.  Great acting on the part of both men.  And, a good satisfying movie to boot!  Worth the money to see.  By the way, the critics only gave it two stars.  That's usually a sign for me that it will be good! 

N


.Hey readers,

Maybe we should have a dream to do list (like Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freman had) before we kick the bucket. Send me your aspirations and we'll list them here. Maybe we can inspire one another to live without regret.

Peggy Jo

First-ever "Read Me a Story" A milk and cookies experience for adults program Contact Chris at cgzebra@wowway.com

"Remember that special feeling you had as a child when someone read you a story?" "You felt cared for, nurtured, and drawn into the wondrous world of the illustrations and the words. Perhaps those experiences put you in touch with your own creative spirit and so linked you to the Creator. Perhaps they taught you how to receive love and how to pass it on to others. "No doubt about it, being read to as a child has a profound and lasting effect on us all. And let's not forget that most of those stories were just plain fun!"

For the pilot program on January 25, a series of readers who will bring their favorite childhood stories to share. Between stories,the crowd will be asked if they'd like to share any memories of similar stories. Within this whole experience "you'll find spirituality with a small 's' -- a chance to get in touch with the nurturing and the love that was sent our way as children and that, in turn, taught us how to love other people. "I would call this kind of experience part of a wonderful ribbon of grace
