don't leave me
Ed, don't leave me alone. Don't leave me. Don't go. Just don't. Cause I'm so sad you're not here, not with me, neither around me. Ed, love me, please.
If there is among you anyone in need, a member of
your community in any of your towns within the land
that the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hard-
hearted or tight-fisted toward your needy neighbor.
You should rather open your hand, willingly lending
enough to meet the need, whatever it may be.
Generosity is also an act of freedom, a casting off of
the constraints of prudence and self-interest.
Holy God, friend of the poor, help us to see your image
in the face of all who ask for our help, that we might
open wide our hand unto them.

Financial Visions5 Ways To Botch Your Lifetime Income Plan
Financial security in retirement is a concern for many Americans. According to LIMRA, seven out of 10 retirees and pre-retirees name “having enough money to last their lifetime” as a top priority. LIMRA also reports 67% of retirees and pre-retirees say “remaining financially independent” is another retirement objective.
With these expectations, the importance of ensuring sufficient income for retirement can’t be overstated. But even with careful retirement planning, there are a number of pitfalls which could put income security at risk. Here’s a look at some challenges which may disrupt your financial security if they’re neglected.

Message: Find Your Strength Through God
Hello My Friend,
The past couple of weeks in Sunday school we have been discussing the dispensations, which means to administer, as laws to particular cases. It is the sin nature of man that brings us in a direction that has nothing to do with God, and while today we are no longer under the law of works for our salvation, God still deals with sin the same way, and it separates us from Him. God may have had different ways in which He dealt with man over the centuries in regards to reconciliation, but one thing He never changes is His desire for all of His creation to acknowledge and love Him, which is why He sent Jesus. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but... (more)
I try to go to places where I will find Spanish words I don't know. Today, I read passages from the Holy Bible in Spanish. There were a lot of words there that I didn't know. So everything was new to me. The words were like little mysteries I had to solve.
What is this word? What does it mean? Also, there was the satisfaction of finding out and knowing what the words meant. I looked in the Book of Proverbs which is chock full of these mystery words. Two words I really liked were "colinas" and "sabiduria."
Another place you can find new words in Spanish is in menus at restaurants. The meal itself is a mystery, because you don't yet know what the words mean. When you order the food, then you know what the words or phrases meant to say. You can also ask the waiter or waitress to explain the words in the menu. That is a great way to immerse yourself in the language.
