Six year old Tammy Lynn Haynes sits at the feet of her mom building a small tower of blocks, ” Mom, you know I can do near about everything there is to do.” she says.
At 19 years old she says, “Just ask me anything.”
At 41 years old she says, “If it is in my field of work, I know it like the back of my hand.”
At 52 years old, “There is so much knowledge in this great big world that even someone who studies hard can hardly grasp everything there is to know.”
At 71 years old, she says, “You know I have lived a long time and I have come to understand that what I know is small and what I don’t know is very large.”
At 92 years old: ” You know, I have figured out I don’t really know much at all, and I can remember even less than that.”

My wife Denise and I just found out we are going to be grandparents this summer. This has been the best Thanksgiving gift we could have ever received. GOD is great and we can’t wait to see the new little blessing that is on the way.
This is our first one on both sides of the family so I am sure the little one will get an avalanche of spoiling. I am not quite sure I can wait until summertime though! There are so many things running through my mind about what I want to tell, teach, and do with our new grand baby.
Whether it’s a girl, or whether it’s a boy it makes no difference to me. We are supposed to have some sort of a reveal party where that information, I guess is revealed? Something about blue or pink balloons popping out of a box. I know GOD has great things planned for this little one!
Someone asked me what I want to be called? I don’t know, but I have a few months to think about that one. I suppose I’ll be called whatever the grand baby ends up calling me. They say the grand babies end up calling the grand parents whatever the first one starts calling them. That’s what happened with our daughter too. Whatever happens, is fine with me.
We are looking forward to this new adventure in our lives. I am sure it will be a great ride!
“Step in as close as you can so that I can see you! Now you know I can’t really see you with that mask on. You’re going to have to take your mask off so that I can see who you really, really are.”
We all want others to love us and accept us for who we truly are yet we don’t live a life of transparency. The person we are on the inside is not the image we portray on the outside. Aren’t we all guilty of wearing masks to protect our true identity; to protect who we really are? We are afraid of being emotionally uncovered, and so we hide and crouch behind our masks that cover our deepest hurts and darkest thoughts that go rambling through our minds.
I suppose the mask has its proper place in our lives for a time. But I believe also that great day we learn to live without a mask is the day we really live for the very first time. It is in the removing of our masks that we find freedom. We become free and are liberated by learning to love and accept ourselves by honoring who we truly are.
Sometimes people act the way they do because of what is anchored deep behind the mask. We tend to look at the resulting action rather than what or who created the action.
I have received mercy, forgiveness, and kindness along my own life journey, none of which I deserved – but I am so very thankful. Showing love and compassion beyond the borders of the mask is how we can really make a difference in this world, for what we often see on the outside is only a reflection of the mask.
May we all learn in time to remove our masks and to be thankful for others who have extended to us forgiveness, mercy, kindness, and compassion.
This Thanksgiving may we all be able to work on removing our own masks, to truly see those who wear them, and of course to be thankful for others who have helped us to become better along the way.
Squire Rushnell is a former network television CEO of ABC who led Good Morning America to number one. He is also a best-selling author of “When GOD winks at you”. This is just one book in a series he has written about uncanny encounters, situations, and experiences people have had with GOD which he calls “GOD winks.”
In his book Rushnell says “GOD’S overall plan for you and me is so much bigger than our small, simple minds can possibly comprehend. When we demonstrate our faith in him, he provides us with hope, and reassurance, revealing a portion of his plan for us. Hope is a powerful force in life. It’s like going into the kitchen, turning on a faucet and being surprised by the water pressure. You almost jump back, giddy that there’s so much energy pouring out.”
A few days ago I had what I believe is one of those “GOD winks” that Squire Rushnell speaks of in his book. I had tossed and turned the better part of the night worried about things that are happening in my life with regards to family health, and finances, along with things that are happening with the elections and all of the uncertainty that surrounds change.
When I got up in the morning I was in the shower praying and crying out to LORD about what I was going to do and how things were going to work out. I was totally frustrated and was just so uneasy with things that are going on. Then something uncanny happened. In my mind, or in my spirit, I felt something say go to page 59 of the “Jesus Calling” book you have on the kitchen table and read it today. For those of you who are not familiar with “Jesus Calling”, it is a great little devotional written by Sarah Young that has touched the hearts of many. many people across the world. My first thought was – “What?”, “Why would I want to read page 59?” I finished in the shower and decided to read page 59, and this is what page 59 said.
“I am leading you, step by step, through your life. Hold My hand in trusting dependence, letting Me guide your through this day. Your future looks uncertain and feels flimsy even precarious. That is how it should be. Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things. When you try to figure out the future, you are grasping at things that are Mine. This, like all forms of worry is an act of rebellion: doubting My promises to care for you.
Whenever you find yourself worrying about the future, repent and return to Me. I will show you the next step forward, and the one after that, and the one after that. Relax and enjoy the journey in My presence trusting Me to open up the way before you as you go.”
All I can say is “Wow”….. GOD really does hear us when we pray, and he really does care. I do believe it was the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD speaking to me. He knows all about us and all we are going through and it matters a lot to him! I certainly believe he winks at us!
I call, and call his name but he’s not there
Sitting snug in his bright yellow chair
I lay on the cold sheets of my bed and just stare
Tears puddle run down my face
And my dad is just not in his place
Hoping for more time
Why I ask you, is life so unkind
Where is that soft, gentle voice
Why didn’t I get a choice
To keep him here
To keep him near
Washed by the waters of time
Nothing can wash him from this heart of mine
I remember his whispering words that day
As he spoke from a smelly death bed, so they say
Cancer broke him down
As it does in many a town
“I’m proud of you my daughter
For the woman you’ve become
You haven’t climbed life’s ladder just to climb
Rung after Rung
Your purpose was “HIS” purpose
And for that, I’m mighty proud
Proud to call you my daughter
Because you’ve kept him number one”
“Help as many people as you can along the way
And make life a joy for all who stay
Those were his words, not mine”
I still think of him all the time
Washed by the waters of time
Nothing will ever wash him from this heart of mine
