A Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving

I had such a wonderful day yesterday.  I've anticipated this day for a year now and was so looking forward to volunteering with the Bea Gaddy Foundation to serve Thanksgiving to the disadvantaged in the City.

The Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving tradition started by Ms. Bea Gaddy in the 1980's.  She was a single mother of 5 and fell on hard times.  One day she bought a 50 cents lottery ticket and won about $300. She used the money she had, cooked and fed her family and distributed food to her neighbors; this act of selflessness began a long tradition and has grown by leaps and bounds over the years with many corporations, businesses and individuals donating food, money and time to keep this tradition alive on Thanksgiving Day.

Bea Gaddy died in 1991 from breast cancer, however her daughters have kept the tradition alive.

Yesterday my Mom and I had the privilege of volunteering at the Annual Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving and we had a blast.  The event was held at a community center in the heart…

Battle Gear: Camouflage

Christian Solders! How are you doing in the battlefield of life?  Remember there are more with you than against you.....God's Army.

This weeks Battle Ready post is on Camouflage!

Camouflage is achieved by hiding/covering or "dressing" things or uptodeceiveanenemy.  This is achieved bypaintingand color coding people and clothingsothattheyarelosttoview or difficult to noticewhen operating in certain environments.

In the battlefield, camouflage uniforms are worn with a combination of brown and green which are suppose to make solders harder to be detected by the enemy.

Weapons of Mass Destruction

Hi Friends!!  How was your weekend? My weekend was great. How are you enjoying the series so far?

Today's Battle Ready post is about Weapons of Mass Destruction. 

Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) are defined as:

-any destructive device (i.e. explosive device);

- any weapon that is designed or intended to cause death or serious bodily injury through the release, dissemination, or impact of toxic or poisonous chemicals, or their precursors;

- any weapon involving a biological agent, toxin, or vector

- any weapon that is designed to release radiation or radioactivity at a level dangerous to human life.”

The following is a sample list of Weapons of Mass destruction (WMD) used in warfare: Landmines,Nuclear Bombs, Missiles, Smart Bombs just to name a few.

Spiritual Weapons of Mass Destruction Distraction

Just like the various weapons of mass destruction listed above that are used in physical warfare, there are also various weapons of mass destruction distraction used in spiritual warfare.

Battlefield

Continuing with our Battle Ready series, in the previous post, we talked about the two structured Spiritual Armies that are fighting. Good vs. Evil or Dark vs. Light.  We discussed the fact that both Armies have a General in command of subordinate forces and both Armies have a distinct mission. 

I'm encouraged to know that the Good/Light Army has an extensive comprehensive Mission, which is to Save, Deliver and Protect us from evil and the eternal consequences of sin.  In addition, to eternally destroy all evil and darkness from existence.

Today we are going to talk about the battlefield where this war is taking place.

First, let us define the term Battle.  Battle, often used interchangeably with War, is a violent fight in which Military forces use weapons in order to gain control of something.

A battlefield by extension can be described as the place where this violent fight takes place; it's an unsafe area of conflict. 

I have never been in a physical battlefield of war be…

Mission: Save_Protect_Destroy

In September I introduced a new series Battle Ready.  I apologize for the lag time between introduction and launch.  Without further delay....let's begin.

The purpose of this series is to heighten our awareness, preparedness, alertness and defenses for Spiritual battles.

Every Nation/Country has a Governmental led Military designed to defend and protect their territory and people. Some have several branches with distinct overall missions.  

In the Unites States for example, the Military comprises of the Army, Navy and Air Force. Each branch and affiliated sub-branches have a distinct operational mission as it pertains to defending and protecting the Country's territory and people.  The general mission of the United States Army is "to fight and win our Nation’s wars by providing prompt, sustained land dominance across the full range of military operations and spectrum of conflict in support of combatant commanders."

It is also important to note that all military for…
