CHILDREN TALK ABOUT WHAT THANKSGIVING MEANS TO THEM

A 12 YEAR OLD REFLECTS ON THANKSGIVING by Daniella (Danni) Whyte

THANKS—A SENSE OF PRAISE

Thanks, to me, is a sense of praise; something that you look at and say, “Thank you Lord.” We have thousands of things to be thankful for. Many human souls are not as blessed as we are, but yet we complain of all our problems. Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks — a time for giving thanks to God.

I thank God for so many things: a home, a family, food, health and life. As I look around, I see so many homeless people who stand on the street corner. Do you know that these people are some of the most grateful people in America? And we, the fortunate, say I have nothing to thank God for. Don’t look at others with their wealth and gold, but look up and remember that Jesus said:

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” —John 14:1-4

When Thanksgiving time comes around, it is a time to give the ultimate thanks to God—just plainly thanking Him for allowing me to see another day. Thanksgiving is also a time to spend with your family—to have a big feast of Thanksgiving food. Thanksgiving is a relaxed time, a moment to recognize the year is coming to its end; a period of time has past. It is a time to look and see all the accomplishments we have completed and all the failures we have overcome. It is a time to look back with tears of joy and a bounty of laughter and say, “Oh, boy, I can’t believe I did that,” and, “I sure won’t do that again.” It is a time to plan for the New Year so that on New Year’s Day we can say, “What a great year this is going to be! What a new day!” with all thanks to God and Jesus Christ.

May the joy of Thanksgiving be around you and yours this new Thanksgiving.

Thank you for joining us for this episode of Whyte House Family stories. You may purchase a copy of this novel and any other Christian fiction books read on this podcast from Amazon.com.

Now, dear listener, please know that God—the divine Author of all things—wants to write a great story with your life as well. But first you must give Him the pen by trusting Him with the life He gave you and surrendering your heart to Jesus Christ as Savior. Here is how:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “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.”

6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

May God bless you until next time.

Friendship-West Church’s ‘100 Days of Buying Black’ focuses on creating new wealth (BCNN1 11.30.21)

This is the Black Christian News Network One podcast. Here are the top stories you need to know about today.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Texas, a state with the largest Black population and Black spending power, is a natural place to promote Black-owned businesses, says a Dallas megachurch pastor behind ongoing and new efforts to create Black wealth. The Rev. Frederick D. Haynes, pastor of Friendship-West Baptist Church, has challenged the Dallas church’s 12,000 parishioners and others to “100 Days of Buying Black.” The campaign started Sept. 23 and runs through the end of this year as part of the 100th commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre. The goal of the challenge is to continue the legacy of Black Wall Street by strengthening the economic base of the Black community nationwide, Haynes said. While the concept to support Black businesses isn’t new, Haynes said it’s one he believes is important to continue to introduce and expand as wages and spending power rise. Black buying power in Texas led the states with $148 billion in 2020, followed by New York and Georgia, according to the University of Georgia’s Selig Center for Economic Growth annual report. Last year “African American economic clout energized the U.S. consumer market as never before,” rising 14% to $1.6 trillion, the report said. That represents 9% of U.S. consumer buying power. So far, 1,500 people have registered on Friendship-West’s website to log in more than $300,000 in spending. “That doesn’t account for all of us,” Haynes said. He’s not of the generation to rush to the computer, but knows that word of the challenge is spreading and others across the country are consciously making it a habit to spend at Black businesses. “For me, it’s just an economic habit, part of my routine,” he said, and he recited a folk saying: “We’re not new to this. We’re true to this.”

According to the Daily Mail and the New York Times, Virgil Abloh, who made history as Louis Vuitton’s first black artistic director, is dead at age 41 following a years-long secret battle with cancer. ‘We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a fiercely devoted father, husband, son, brother, and friend,’ a message posted on the designer’s Instagram account stated. ‘He is survived by his loving wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh, and numerous dear friends and colleagues.’ According to the statement, Virgil ‘chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture.’ “Everything I do is for the 17-year-old version of myself,” his wife quoted him as saying in the Instagram post. He believed deeply, she wrote, “in the power of art to inspire future generations.” “We are all shocked after this terrible news. Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom,” Bernard Arnault, the chairman of LVMH, said in a statement. “The LVMH family joins me in this moment of great sorrow, and we are all thinking of his loved ones after the passing of their husband, their father, their brother or their friend.”

According to USA Today, A magnitude 7.5 earthquake rocked northern Peru on Sunday, collapsing a 16th-century Catholic church tower although no deaths or serious injuries were immediately reported. Peru’s civil defense chief Carlos Yañez, said at least four people were injured and 220 homes seriously damaged or destroyed. Yañez also said some roads and other infrastructure were damaged. The quake struck at the sparsely populated region at 5:52 local time, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The quake was deep, about 70 miles below the Earth’s surface, a factor that can sometimes reduce damage to buildings and infrastructure. The epicenter was 25 miles northwest of Barranca, a coastal city of 63,000 people, USGS said. “We have four injuries that are very minor, but they are being treated in medical centers,” Yañez told RPP Noticias.

According to NBC New York, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has declared a state of emergency ahead of potential COVID-19 spikes this winter due to the already-circulating Delta and newly-identified Omicron variants of coronavirus. The declaration, which goes into effect on Dec. 3, will allow the state to acquire pandemic-fighting supplies, increase hospital capacity and fight potential staffing shortages. It would also allow the state Health Department to limit non-essential and non-urgent procedures at hospitals. “We continue to see warning signs of spikes this upcoming winter, and while the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it’s coming,” Hochul said. The move comes hours after the governor said her office was closely monitoring the new variant, which was first sequenced in South Africa earlier this week.

According to the Daily Mail, An Oakland security guard, a grandfather of three, died after he was shot while protecting a TV crew reporting on scourge of smash-and-grab looting in Bay Area. Kevin Nishita, a former police officer, was on assignment to guard the KRON4 team as they reported on the latest robbery in California on Wednesday when a robber targeted the TV crew for their cameras. Nishita confronted one of 12 masked robbers to protect the reporters, and the thief shot him in the lower abdomen. He was rushed to Highland Hospital to undergo surgery, but died on Saturday morning.

According to the Daily Mail, Jussie Smollett’s hoax attack trial begins this week, nearly three years after he told police he was beaten in the street by two MAGA hat wearing, light-skinned men who turned out to be a pair of Nigerian brothers who claim the actor paid them to stage the beating. Smollett, 39, was charged with six counts of felony disorderly conduct in February 2020, a year after the incident. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of three years, but it’s likely he would be sentenced to probation if found guilty. Smollett was accused of orchestrating the attack by hiring brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo to punch him and put a noose around his neck, in what police said was an effort to raise his celebrity profile. He was charged first with 16 counts of lying to police, but the charges were dropped by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who had connections to the actor’s family. He was re-charged in 2020 by a special prosecutor, and that is the case that is now going to trial. Smollett, who is black and openly gay, has always maintained his innocence and says he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. He doesn’t deny that it was the brothers who were involved, but he says he did not lie to police in his version of events.

According to CNN, Lee Elder, who was the first Black golfer to play at the Masters, has died at the age of 87, the PGA Tour confirmed on Monday. Elder broke through Augusta’s race barrier at the 1975 edition of the famous competition. He was honored at the 2021 Masters, joining Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player as an honorary starter in the ceremonial first tee shot to begin the tournament. Elder told CNN in 2015 that making his Masters debut in Augusta, Georgia, was a “very nerve-racking” experience. “I was shaking so badly, I did not know if I was even going to be able to tee up the ball,” he said. “How I got through it I do not know, just with the help of the Almighty I got there and was able to put my ball on the tee.”

In closing, remember, God loves you. He always has and He always will. John 3:16, “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.” If you don’t know Jesus as your Saviour, today is a good day to get to know Him. Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose from the dead for you. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart and He will. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Thanks so much for listening and may God bless your day!

28-year-old woman is charged with murder of 80-year-old NYC man who was found dead with ‘I touch little girls’ written on his chest

Rene Ayarde (pictured), 28, has been charged with murdering an 80-year-old man who was found beaten to death in his home with ‘I touch little girls’ scrawled on his chest

A live-in aide has been charged with the murder of an 80-year-old man who was found beaten to death in his home with ‘I touch little girls’ scrawled on his chest.

Rene Ayarde, 28, was charged Monday with murder, manslaughter and assault, months after the July killing of Robert Raynor in his Staten Island apartment.

She and her daughter lived with Raynor who was discovered dead in a pair of pants in the first floor hallway of a multi-family home in Tompkinsville with several injuries.

Police have refused to give a motive for Ayarde, who was arrested for child abuse hours after the killing, but has only now been charged with murder.

Just six hours after police discovered Raynor lying shirtless with cuts to his forehead and two black eyes, Ayarde was arrested for allegedly assaulting her three-year-old daughter.

Ayarde and her daughter lived with victim Robert Raynor (pictured) who was discovered dead in the first floor hallway of a multi-family home in Tompkinsville with several injuries

She threw her daughter onto the concrete ground and dragged her along a street before throwing a bottle of water on the girl’s face, police said.

A passerby is said to have seen the alleged assault and while Ayarde was screaming at her crying daughter, the woman called the police.

But Ayarde then took the phone out of the woman’s hands and knocked her to the ground, leaving her with bruises and scratches on her body, prosecutors allege.

‘Are you calling the police? Give me your phone,’ Ayarde shouted at the woman according to court documents reported by Daily News.

The three-year-old was rushed to hospital with bruises to her neck when emergency services arrived.

At the hospital, investigators found other injuries on the girl’s knees, face and cheek which were in various states of healing, according to the court documents.

‘I was outside and Mommy threw me on the floor,’ the girl told police, according to the court papers.

At the time, Ayarde was ruled out as a suspect in the murder probe into Raynor’s death.

But four months later, she has now been charged.

The disturbing message found on Raynor’s chest do not seem to be backed up by the 80-year-old’s extensive rap sheet.

He had 24 prior arrests to his name, but no record of pedophilia and his name does not appear in the state’s online registry of known sex offenders.
