"I am a 43 year old single female, the youngest of three girls from the union of my parents. My beloved Mother passed in 1990, and my father well I am still sassy to him. I am the mother of two children (14) girl and (6) boy. I am an aunt to three nephews from my oldest sister of the same parental union. Later to the halves and the half-nots. We have resided near our hometown of Washington,D.C. for the last 15 years - in the country of Prince Georges' Maryland. (he he ha ha)
I have never been married. I am currently not telling whether or not that I am seeing anyone in the United States. I am a heterosexual female, and I like a man who is sexy and confident, with good hygiene and a good sense of humor.
One of the next questions will be my nationality. While I must admit that religion has changed the way I see my people; and so I struggle to believe we are all God's children. I have been in America for over 500 years, but I am not an honorary member of my tribe. I am a part of the diaspora of many countries, but yet I can't find the twelve tribes of Israel. My people are scattered and we don't know each other.
I am not lost or delusional. I am very aware of my heritage and I refuse to let anyone pencil me in or out of my inheritance.
Last but not least, I am the type of person who has many interestand hobbies, outside of leisure and luxury . For instance, I like to support many worthy causes not limited to the societies that protect the rights of all animals (especially the German Shepherd). I am avid fan of Unity Production Foundations, who is coming in it's own to similarity with the United Peace Federation that supports the Millineum project Goals of the United Nations.
I recently was blessed to meet the people of the vigil for the Ashraf Camp in Iraq that is protected by the US led UN Coalition forces. Also, I hope to donate lots of money as a partner to the program for youth, known as the "Seeds of Peace."
I have also been a benefactor of the Global Peace Festivals, the service project is called 1,000,000 kind acts. I continue to be an avid fan and supporter when possible to all organizations that support peace i.e., financial partner that equips the youth to engage the world in peace.
And last but not least, I love my beautiful black brother, Al Sharpton, and he was in town on the weekend on Saturday, May 16th, 2009 and will march near the white house in commemoration of the Brown v. Board of Education. Therefore, I am an avid supporter of the National Action Network.
I love to promote peace. In my spare time I like to arts and craft shows, wine tasting events, native american festivals, and other community festivals (the weekend of 05/14/2009 to 05/17/09, there was an open Greek Festival for the community at a Greek Orthodox Church).
I love to meet new and exciting people. I hope that being a (international and domestic) human rights activist will lead to a blazing trail. I will never say that my interest is for this person or that person because I want to be redeemed by God, the Earth is the Lord's and the fullness therein. Finally, I hope that people will like to play the UNO's card game, bikeriding and rollerskating."

Before I go into the sermon of the day taken from John 15th, I just wanted to share the word, which can be interpreted as a parable about sharing (Matthew 13: 4-9), Matthew 13:3: Behold a sower went forth to sow; 4) And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the (birds) fowls came and devoured them up: 5) Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth; and forwith they spring up because they had no deepness of earth (depth of soil): 6) And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7) And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8) But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty-fold, some thirtyfold. 9) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 11) Now the Church, like the disciples of Jesus, were given the ability to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven – while you are in the Church (1st Cor. 2:10). In the body of Christ, if you have love for your children and you preserve that bond it shall be given unto you in more abundance. Therefore, Jesus said, “I speak to them in Parables, the ones that were not in the Church of God, surely they don’t see, they don’t hear and neither do they understand.” Yet, Jesus said that all that come unto him heavy laden, will fulfill the Prophey of Esias and you shall hear even though you don’t understand. And that you shall see even though you don’t perceive. Man will testify against you, for he is the watchman and he will go back and tell the men of the nations what thus said the Lord:> The Lord’s Great Victory Over the Nations (Ezekial 38) “The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of[a] Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him 3 and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of[b] Meshek and Tubal. 4 I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. 5 Persia, Cush[c] and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, 6 also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.“
Then and only then, in Jesus name will people understand with their heart and shall be converted unto the body of Christ, in the Church of God and Jesus shall heal them (John 3:5).

The assumption that an earlier version of modernization theory must be modified eventually became a requirement for economic and social development in developed and developing countries. For instance, an earlier version of the modernization theory was too optimistic and simplistic in its initial view of change. However, the proponents of an early version of modernization theory expected developing countries to achieve a smooth and simultaneous economic growth, and greater equality, and democracy, and stability, and an even a greater national autonomy. The modernization theory (Samuel Huntington) noted that there was an error in assuming that even “all good things [could even] go together.” (as cited in Handelman, 2006, page 13).

The Ten Commandments1 And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”
21 The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.
Idols and Altars22 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites this: ‘You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven: 23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
The Parable of the Lost Coin8 “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins[a] and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? 9 And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ 10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

The Disciples of Jesus Christs' Memorial Parsha Shelach
2Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.
3And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the wilderness of Paran: all those men were heads of the children of Israel.
4And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur.
5Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.
6Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
7Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.
8Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.
9Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.
10Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.
11Of the tribe of Joseph, namely, of the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi.
12Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.
13Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.
14Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.
15Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi.
16These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.
17And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them, "Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain:
21So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.
22And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)
23And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.
24The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.
25And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.
26And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land.
27And they told him, and said, "We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
31But the men that went up with him said, "We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we."
32And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
33And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
2And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, "Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!
3And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?"
4And they said one to another, "Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt."
5Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.
6And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:
7And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, "The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.
10But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.
11And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?
20And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:
25(Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.
26And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
27How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.
40And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned.
41And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.
45Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.
2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,
18Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,
33And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.
34And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.
35And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.
36And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.
37And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
38Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:

|Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh|
Jephunneh was of African descent
Caleb was positive throughout the entire trip. He knew that if God was before him then no one could be against him. Unfortunately the other men that went to scout the promise land had a different report, a report that was very unfavorable to God and disheartened the hopes and dreams of the entire Israelite community. Whose report will you believe? It is true that sometimes you can become a part of something that takes up all of your time and you won’t be able to tithe God your treasures like your time, your money, your first fruits etc. You have to believe that God will come first, and you have to trust God and expect the best even in the very worst of crisis.
In Chapter 13, the spies were sent to explore the land of Canaan to see the mountainous land, the people that dewell and to determine of the people to see if they were strong, or week, few or many. Moses wanted to know how the people were living. Most of all when he investigated the life style he said be sure that you are courageous, and then believe that you can bring a sample of fruit (13:17-20).
In Chapter 14, Moses instead got a turn of events. He tried to act as intermediary to the people. He petitioned God, to not destroy the people that gave the evil report. So God obliged his prayer. However God said that there would be grave consequences for giving an evil report. At this time there was only the law - there was not much grace. So the individuals except Caleb that gave an evil report with lack of confidence were sentenced to wonder in the desert one year for each day that they wondered into the promise land and did not believe that God would deliver the Israelite community, just as he said that when the Amorites iniquity was full then they would receive their promise land, as promised to the Descendants of Abraham. Somehow during the forty days of exploring the promised land something went wrong when the explorers gave an ill report to Moses, Aaron and the entire Israelite community (Numbers 13:26).
Unfortunately there probably had been many attempts to flee Egyptian oppression, and probably six figures died in the process and so God lead the new formed nation, the Israelite community. Nevertheless, the rebellious and the ones with little faith decided to go to the promise land on their own, and they were met with opposition because the Ark of the Covenant of God was not with them. Like Joshua, even King David knew the importance of regulation in battle and seizing, doubling your proportion and warfare with the ark of the covenant. The rebellious were smoted and discomfited by the Amalekites and the Canaanites (Numbers 14:44).
The good lesson in this Parsha is that God agrees to keep the covenant with the children of the rebellious people, and God protects the children for forty years, and eventually in the book of Deuteronomy by the fifth chapter, these very same children inherit the promise land.
In Chapter 15, there is a Supplementary Offering Law to be observed because he has already given you the promise land as an inheritance. The supplementary (drink, meal, burnt, or meat) offering can be prepared as burnt, vow, special offering, fellowship offering or a sacrificial offering, much like the Saints drink the symbolical blood of the Lord Jesus Christ with the Bread, the one ordinance to the Church. God encourages the Israelite community to bless Him with their threshing floor, to offer offerings this way there will be no idolatry amongst even the stranger or the sojourners (Numbers 15:1-20).
Lastly, in Chapter 15, God commands Moses to ordain the heave offering unto Jehovah. The Heave offering is not only symbolical but this offering causes healing in the body. You don't have to worry about the giants that give their friends jobs while you idoly sit back and envy the heathen, and the idolater. This offering alone ceremoniously and miraculously cleansed the community from intentional sin ignorantly committed without voluntary knowledge of committing a sin. (Numbers 15:17-30). Then a man gathered sticks on the Sabbath Day, we all know that Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath, but in ancient times a man was stoned to death because he gathered sticks on the Sabbath (Numbers 15:32-37).
Finally, a common icon that you see often are the fringes on the borders of the garments (tallits). Many people kiss the garment and pray before the alters of physical sanctuaries. Hopefully you will follow Gods law to look upon it and follow all of his commandments and do them because if you don't then you will go whoring. Otherwise you will remember all the commandments of God and be Holy to your God, for he is Holy. (Numbers 15:36-41). God is Jehovah, He brought you out of the land of Egypt, He will be your God. Jehovah. (Numbers 15:41).
