For all those who are staying with me through this trip down memory lane... I thank you! It is by far not an easy travel... but it is eye-opening and very, very necessary. Thank you for being here!

Each Friday I have been sharing with you the Friday Prayer Sessions. Each week seems to bring signs of what is to be the subject for that week. This week what has been emphasized is Respect. Respect in all of its forms.
When these prayer sessions were formed I felt compelled to do something for the world. To offer something that would make a difference. In no way did I expect each individual who read the prayer request to join me on that Friday. I have full respect for each of you. I am honored by all who do join in prayer.
In the last few days I have seen so many people disrespecting others. Simply because they are in a hurry to get somewhere and another person is in their way. Simply because someone else has another point of view. Simply because they are different. Simply because they don't care...they are consumed with their own life. They are "surface living"...ignoring everything and everyone around them.
Each individual is special. Each individual has the right to be respected. And each individual has the responsibility to respect others around them.
How can we possibly expect countries to get along out of respect for each other if we, as individuals, don't live that same respect? Let's take that one step further. How can we expect people, in general, to have respect for the Earth if they don't respect other human beings? What of all the creatures on Earth? Do they deserve respect too? They are alive. It seems that we have, to some degree, begun to live in a "throw away world". We live out of convenience...what is best for us right this second. We have no thoughts of what our actions now will bring to this Earth several generations from now.
Not all live this way. Too many still do. I ask you this week to visualize all individuals living with Respect in their hearts for all of Earth's inhabitants, including the Earth herself. Enable them to understand the other person's feelings and even if they don't agree, to still live from a state of respect. Please see each individual understanding the value of every single thing around them. This Earth has blossomed from diversity. In order to preserve the beauty of each individual, respect is necessary.
I am you in another form
each of us a new soul born.
We were equal the day of our birth
why is it now we have a different worth?
I was taught to live by the "Golden Rule"
yet the world is filled with those who are cruel.
Do they not see what their actions bring?
More of the same...the hurt that stings.
We were given free will for a reason you know,
to experience life fully, to love, to grow
into who we were born to be
with respect in our hearts for all to see.
