BLACK HISTORY MONTH: PLEASE SHOW SANITATION PROFESSIONALS SOME LOVE…

During the COVID-19 pandemic many well-deserving workers have been recognized as heroes and essential. From medical professionals to shipping and logistics to retail workers and educators — many workers have consistently receive recognition and honor.

However, one group of essential professionals are consistently forgotten or ignored. — Sanitation Professionals . ( I made it a proper noun on purpose). In most cases, these hard-working professionals are Black.

One of the reasons the bubonic plague was so devastating is because of waste. It doesn’t take long for our waste to accumulate in our homes and on our streets if it isn’t quickly and properly disposed of.


As much as many people missed their sports, favorite restaurants and entertainment during shut-down days, Sanitation Professionals have continued working through the pandemic and many of them got sick. Hardly no one talks about that. What would you have missed first? March Madness? The NBA Finals? The Super Bowl? or your garbage being taken away?


Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was gunned down while in Memphis TN as he came to fight for the rights, and dignity of Sanitation Professionals. The fact that these heroes have been ignored proves some things never change. The workers pictured above are in a suburb of Memphis.

If you happen to be around when your Sanitation Professionals are doing their job, tell them they are appreciated. Shout them out on social media. Show them some love.

And please thank God for them and mention them in your prayers…

Ephesians 1:16 (NKJV)

16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:

THE BLESSING IN LOSING HER MIND (FROM MY ARCHIVES)…

WHAT’ IS THOUGHT TO BE A CURSE OF OLD AGE IS A BLESSING TO SOME…

Years ago I used to do nursing home ministry. I would visit two nursing homes, once each month. As I walked down through the halls I would see the same faces. There were some residents who had regular visits from family and friends, but unfortunately, there too many who never got a visitor…ever.

There were also varying levels of mental health. One lady in particular at one of the nursing homes would say the same thing during every visit. She would sit in her wheelchair in the entrance to her room as I walked by…smile and say, “I’m going home today”. No, she wasn’t going home. She was one of the residents who never had visitors, and her family had moved on with their lives. At first I felt sorry for her because her situation seemed so hopeless…but then God gave me an awesome revelation.

In her hopeless situation…her dementia was a blessing!

Blessing? How was her dementia a blessing?

In reality, she woke up every morning WITHOUT hope of going home.

But through her dementia, she woke up every morning WITH hope of going home.

God gave her a reason to smile EVERY DAY.

God gave her something to look forward to EVERY DAY.

God gave her HOPE in a HOPELESS situation.

She spent her last days with HOPE.

What many may think of as a CURSE, was actually a BLESSING to her.

God’s wisdom is amazing!

He can can pull HOPE out of HOPEless…

FORTUNE our of unFORTUNALTE…

Stop and give God praise for His unfathomable wisdom. Paul was right in Romans 11…

Romans 11: 33-36
33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! 34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has become His counselor?”
35 “Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”
36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
