Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


It is December 11, 2021...
By now most have put up a tree...
Many have installed lights on their houses...
Big blowups are in front yards...
Office parties are planned...
Gifts are hidden...
Bikes are in neighbors garages...

People are looking for special gifts to buy...
Gifts that their special people desire...
People are upset because things are out of stock...
Ships are in the ocean waiting to unload...
Right now this seems so important...

Now let’s take a moment to think...
Do we think the people who...
Who were hit by the tornadoes last night...
Are worried about those things...
The tornadoes came and...
Many families lost members...
Mothers, Fathers, children, parents, siblings...
Families changed forever...
Many friends are gone...

Homes, businesses, jobs, and Christmas tree...
Think about it...
Look at the devastation...
Feel their pain...
Dreams blown away...

Now maybe looking at the devastation...
Thinking about the losses...
Maybe there are more important things...
Things to think about than out of stock items
this Christmas season...

If you still have a complete family...
If you still have a home and a tree...
If you still have a job...
How about clothes and a vehicle...
Maybe this would be a good time to pray...
Thank God first...
Then pray for the people who were devastated...
Sometimes we just have to look at the news...
Turn on the TV...
There is more on the TV than adds...

Tonight she realized how blessed she is...
She has her family...
Her home is still standing...
Her tree is lit...
Her world is warm and safe...
Her clothes are clean and in place...

She looks at the News and prays...
Her pretty tree...
Her nativity set...
Gave her a warm heart...
But the news made her heart cry...

Think folks...
Do you need to pray a “THANK YOU”

More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
