  And above all that he hath been pleased to continue to us the light of gospel truths, and secured to us, in the fullest manner, the rights of conscience in faith and worship.

I see this as one of our most important proclamations, it say's so much in so little words.

To  think Thomas, how men of  August 1784, over 229 years ago, remembered to bring "Thanks" for the blessings we have, both in our home and in our country.  Kneeling down with bowed head, hands clasp, giving thanks for all we have, never fearing what so many might think or do, showed the world what was important to us then.  So, what happened?  Where did the brave hearts who lead our country disappear too?   Can they not see what is taking place when God is absent in the hearts and minds of those who have America's interest in their hands?  What happened that they let  go of what made us who and what we are, but without our faith and without our belief in God's blessings, then we loose the substance of the American spirit, the gift of a God's love. Please read what Thomas gave us to remind us of what is important and what is not.  God Bless, and to all, have a very happy Thanks Giving!    Milt and Val  (If our Washington Leaders could pray then, we can pray now)!

Well done Thomas!  If only today's congress would find it in their hearts and minds to remember how God played such an important part in Americas birth, and the blessings brought to us when we brought him into our lives first, and looked to him for guidance in the days where prayer, and the image of God was always welcomed into the halls of where our laws are made.  As I read the words, even as an old vet, my eyes filled with teas, tears shed whenever the word "God" was uttered in the chambers of "House" or "Senate".  Thanks Thomas, well done!

"Nation Under God Shall Have A New Birth Of Freedom."

I pledge allegiance to the Flag,
of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
One Nation, under God
Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
