Psalm 119: 32  I run in the path of your commands, O Lord, for you have set my heart free.

I have finished editing my newest cookbook.  I will be selecting the cover, design, etc.  The only problem is that I don’t have a NAME for this new book.  It will contain 250 recipes that I have prepared for my family on Sunday dinners, church pot lucks and regular dinners.  The first book was “Family Favorites”, which is currently sold out.  This book has many of the recipes from Family Favorites, but many new recipes as well.  Let me know your creative titles.  If I choose your Title you will WIN a FREE cookbook when it is published.  Looking for some creative ideas.  Get Ready – Set – Go – Get Creative.

Philippians 4:13  I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.

This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible and so appropriate for this post.

James  5:11  We consider blessed those who have perservered. You have heard of Job’s perserverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about.  The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

Anyone who has been raised in Kentucky has a reverence for today.  The most exciting two minutes in sports, etc. are some of the common comments for today.  I have lived in Ky. most of my adult life.  I have been to the Derby ONCE, even though I live only about an  hours drive. 

The Derby that I attended was Wonderful.  Through my work my husband and I scored Corporate tickets.  That meant we were in a Corporate Box with catered food and drinks for the entire day and we were under shelter from the rain.  (Not this year).  This is the way to go to the Derby.  We did not win big, but really enjoyed the day.

This year we worked in the yard cleaning up flower beds, etc.  After a wonderful warm shower we watched the race on TV.  What an amazing story.  A relatively unknown horse won.  Maybe that is the story of the recovery of this nation.  Relatively unknown businesses and persons can spur this economy to recover.

The Long Shot came in today.  American that should be us.  Let’s all prove to the world that we can overcome.  We can budget.  We can purchase wisely.  We can reinvent ourselves to be more:  economical, wiser, recycle, frugal, entraprenurial, etc.  This is OUR country, not the governments.  Let’s make sure we remember that when we elect officials.  We should hold our elected officials responsible for the bills that they pass and the PORK that they put into the bills they are passing.

Psalm  138:8  The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord endures forever – do not abandon the works of your hands. 

Today was definately a Historic day for our country.  I am not a minority and do not pretend to know what minorites in our country have faced or what this day meant to those groups.   I pray that this is a sign that this country gives people the opportunity to  prosper beyond any other country in the world.

I have really been appauled at the tone of the conservative “talk radio” today.  I did NOT vote for President Obama.  I do not believe that government handouts will solve the problems of the economy.  BUT, I also believe that someone who can inspire the people in this country to come together to support each other, help each other and take an active role in getting our country back on track cannot be bad.

I remember the presidency of John F. Kennedy.  He inspired this country to look beyond themselves and to help each other.  Ronald Regan also inspired us to become one nation.  I pray that this country can come together.  The words that John F. Kennedy spoke, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for this country”, should be our mantra.  Together we can embrace each other, help meet each others needs and propel this country into a new era.
