Sad News

Bobby with his granddaughter Lailah
We lost our brother, Robert V. Johnson (Bobby) age 57 -- he passed away Thursday, November 6 at 12:10 am. Life is a series of events, and until we've reached the end of the series, it's hard to know exactly why things are happening. I don't know how we are going to get through this, but I know ultimately we will. God be with us all. My mom is especially my concern these days. She has had to endure a lot and I know that she can rely on her Faith to help her through.

I had signed up for NaBloPoMo(National Blog Posting Month), today is day 7, and already I have not been able to blog each day. The month started off with many challenges. However, I think I might try to still do as much as I can. I enjoy blogging and I know it has peeked my interest in writing. I am encouraged each time I read someones blog. Writing is a good form of release and a great way to express ourselves. I have come across some awesome reads.


I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brain to work.
I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help...
May you rest in peace my brother
We Love you!
