Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Clear Channel Outdoor in Fort Smith, AR produced this billboard to support
the family’s continued efforts to find Morgan Nick.
Today's focus is to help encourage another family of the missing. One way they remember their loved one is the annual "Fireflies for Morgan" on June 9th. If the fireflies are out in your area, will you spend time admiring them. If you can, take a picture and post it to Facebook or other social media and mention the hope we have to bring Morgan and all our missing home. Special prayers and hugs to Morgan's family, friends, and community today.
Will you share this blog on your Facebook page. They are hoping to reach more people than they did last year. Each photo has a link. The episode of Home Makeover for Morgan's family is included also. You can leave the family a message here or visit their Facebook page - thank you in advance for remembering, praying, and sharing for Morgan today. May she and all our missing come home. Fireflies of hope today.
Julia (friend of the family) writes on the "Butterflies for Morgan" Facebook page:
"19 years ago on June 9th, a beautiful little girl, Morgan Nick, was abducted from a Little League playground while she was catching fireflies. Morgan is still missing. Her mother, Colleen Nick , is a very dear friend of mine and a strong advocate for the missing. We ask everyone to honor Morgan by catching 19 fireflies and taking a picture of them to commemorate the moment of HOPE. I hope you will join me in catching the fireflies and post your picture on Facebook or send it to me.
We would love to let Morgan's family know how many people around the world are thinking of Morgan and sending positive thoughts of HOPE to help bring Morgan home. If there are no fireflies in your area, please spend a moment to think of Morgan and her family light a candle if you are able. To find out more about Morgan and see the amazing good work Morgan's mother does every day, please visit http://www.morgannickfoundation.com/
This year I am sending out the invitations a bit earlier to see if we can top our previous years attendance- please invite your friends and family to take part as well- let's get this going world-wide! What if the person you invite is the one who has the information to bring Morgan home??
Please take some time to speak with the children in your life about safety. Education is key to combating crimes against children. You can find helpful publications on this at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s website: www.missingkids.com. Consider enrolling your kids in a self-defense/empowerment course so they have knowledge about how to protect themselves, no matter what their age. Catching fireflies is such an iconic childhood pleasure- let’s work together to keep all children safe and joyful!
Thank you my friends!!
To those of you who participated in this event last year- Thank You!! Your thoughts, prayers, best wishes and pictures meant more to this family than words can say."
