This past Saturday, 11/14/15, waking up to an autumn day, with a bluebird sky in Georgia, knowing our special niece, Pamela would be marrying her best friend, Joel at 6 p.m. and our two favorite S.E.C. teams, Auburn and Georgia would be battling for a win at 12 noon, the news of the tragic shooting in Paris stopped us in our tracks, as we paused to pray for those directly impacted.

And that idea is liberty.” Tony Blair [/pullquote]While we know that ISIS has claimed responsibility for these terroristic attacks, there are still so many unanswered questions across our world. We shed tears for the people of Paris, have compassion for the families of the victims on the blown up Russian jet, for the countless in many nations who are being killed for what they believe, questions about why so many refugees are being forced to leave their homes and sadness over the number of starving children, both here and abroad.

While there is still time, let us seize the moments.

WE LOVE Paris! WE spent our 20th wedding anniversary there in October 2002. The Louvre Museum, The Eiffel Tower, the many sidewalk cafes, and the French people. [pullquote]Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandi[/pullquote]

Our hearts ache for these residents today.


Change is all around us.

As we pray for Paris and for our entireIMG_5151

world during this season of turmoil,

let’s make today count.

What small changes can you and I

make as we seize the moments?

Let’s start by making sure our loved ones know how much they are cherished.
