In mother’s death, the healing power of God delivers

My mom died in an unexpected and tragic way from a preventable complication of back surgery. I was there when it happened. I noticed she wasn’t breathing and initiated first response care. I felt responsible for successfully applying CPR on my mother, and I felt her ribs crack under my hands while I watched her face, looking for signs of response. The memory of it would haunt me later. I prayed for a multitude of things I don’t even remember, and I prayed for His presence.

Lions to host egg hunt

Here is a little history for those who might like to know about the Easter Bunny. Early German writings from the 1500s mention the legend of the Easter Bunny. As the legend goes, the Easter Bunny visited good children and laid colored eggs for them in nests that the children would make out of their hats. As the story of the Easter bunny spread throughout the country, Easter baskets became the tradition. The bunny expanded its edible Easter gifts to children as the decades went by, with candies, chocolates and even small toys becoming popular deliveries.

Donate your out-of-prescription eyeglasses

Donating your old eyeglasses can save someone in a developing nation from unemployment. With the cost of glasses equaling a year’s salary in some countries, donated eyeglasses are the only feasible way to bring sight to many visually impaired. These recycled eyeglasses can be the difference between a blacksmith continuing his work or closing up shop, or the factor that enables a woman to support herself by doing embroidery rather than becoming destitute.

“Statehood”

The shouting is over, but the joy and enthusiasm lingers on! I’m speaking, of course, about Congressional approval of statehood for this great country of ours. It was a memorable occasion for the majority of Alaskans the day the word was flashed instantaneously by the miracle of teletype. After years of struggle, red tape, delay and what-not, the victory was finally ours.
