APIA, Samoa – A massive tsunami hurled by a powerful earthquake flattened Samoan villages and swept cars and people out to sea, killing at least 99 and leaving dozens missing Wednesday. The toll was expected to rise.
The same day, western Indonesia was rocked by a strong underwater temblor, briefly triggering a tsunami alert for countries along the Indian Ocean and sending panicked residents out of their houses. The alert was later canceled.
Survivors of the South Pacific islands tsunami fled the fast-churning water for higher ground and remained huddled there hours after the quake, with a magnitude between 8.0 and 8.3, struck around dawn Tuesday.
The quake was centered about 125 miles (200 kilometers) from Samoa, an island nation of 180,000 people located about halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii. It was about 120 miles (190 kilometers) from neighboring American Samoa, a U.S. territory that is home to 65,000 people.
Four tsunami waves 15 to 20 feet (4 to 6 meters) high roared ashore on American Samoa, reaching up to a mile (1.5 kilometers) inland, Mike Reynolds, superintendent of the National Park of American Samoa, was quoted as saying by a parks service spokeswoman.
Hampered by power and communications outages, officials struggled to determine damage and casualties.
Samoan police commissioner Lilo Maiava told The Associated Press that police there had confirmed 63 deaths but that officials were still searching the devastated areas, so the number of deaths might rise soon.

Trust over Fear!
Today’s Verse: “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe” (Proverbs 29:25, NIV).
Today’s Word: Fear is one of the enemy’s favorite tools to keep us from going forward in our lives. As soon as we make a decision to step out in faith and do what God is telling us to do, immediately the enemy will bring fear. He’ll put thoughts in your mind like, “What if I fail? What will others think? Maybe I don’t have what it takes.” He’ll do his best to use fear to try to convince you to shrink back and just stay right where you are.The Bible tells us that fear is a spirit. It affects your emotions. But when you choose to put your trust in the Lord, no matter how you are feeling, you are combating fear.Today, I encourage you, don’t allow fear to trap you and hold you back. Instead, take a step of faith knowing that God is on your side. He is for you and with you, leading and guiding you in the path of victory all the days of your life!
Prayer for Today: Heavenly Father, I choose to put my trust in You. I choose to press forward and overcome fear. I believe You have my best interest at heart and know that You are leading me in the paths of righteousness all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Three arrested after fight at Knightdale High

Posted: Today at 11:58 a.m. Updated: 1 minute ago
Knightdale, N.C. — Three students were arrested after several fights broke out Wednesday morning at Knightdale High School, according to police.
Lyndon Earl Ore, 16, and Prentise Ja’vaughn Wilkins, 17, were each charged with simple affray and disorderly conduct after police said they started fighting at the school just after 10:30 a.m.
Police said Darren Strawder, 18, was trying to jump into the fight and took a swing at a resource officer who was trying to detain him. He is charged with one count of assault on a government official.
The three remained at the Wake County jail Wednesday afternoon.
About 40 officers descended on the school after a fight broke out in the cafeteria. More than 1,900 students were in the room when the fight started. Officers said several other fights broke out.
Knightdale police contacted other agencies for help. At one point, a Wake County Sheriff's sergeant said up to 40 students were involved in the fights.
School staff cut the lunch period short because of the fights. Some parents picked up their students up early from school because of the incident.
Wake County Public School System spokesman Greg Thomas said classes resumed by noon.

Have you checked your heart out lately? Is your heart beating for the people that you love?
Luke 7:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good”
Heart disease, is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States . The most common form of heart disease is coronary heart disease, also known as coronary artery disease (CAD). Each year, approximately 500,000 Americans die from CAD-related heart attacks.
We all have been hurt some time or another. Things seem to come out of nowhere and touch us right in/on our heart. It could be your husband who hurt you, your wife, your children, your family, co-workers, or even your fellow church brother or sister. When this occurs, remember not to harbor on the fact that you were hurt, but rather on the fact that even though you were hurt, you are going to be healed. When we allow things to stay in our heart, it causes all kinds of pain to our mind, body and soul. There are natural things that occur as a result of the heart not working properly. Look below:
Coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common form of heart disease, is caused by the arteries becoming clogged when it should just be a pathway for oxygen and nutrients. The arteries are there so that fresh air (oxygen) can pass through. When your artery is disturbed or clogged, this can cause a stroke naturally. Spiritually, your heart (love) can get clogged with bitterness if that fresh flow of air (holy spirit) can’t get through.
Congestive heart failure results when the heart muscle becomes weakened and can no longer pump blood efficiently. Have you been hurt so badly that every time someone tries to show love to you, you reject them because of your past experiences? Get healed today. Don’t let the past dictate your future!
Cardiomyopathy occurs when the heart muscle loses its ability to pump blood. How many of us can identify with this one? The moment we get hurt, the world stops and we feel that we can’t go on. We lose the fight in us.
No matter how bad the situation or the circumstance, you can be healed. When the heart becomes too damaged to pump properly, it’s time to get a heart transplant. A time to replace the feeling that was temporary, with something that is permanent; TRUE LOVE. Love is unconditional and should not have any boundaries. Don’t let anything stop or prevent you from loving. God is love. If you don’t have love you don’t have God.
Your day has officially been started!!
Have a great LOVE day!!
Minister Williams
This will be my last inspiration for a while, I am having surgery on Friday keep me in your prayers. Don’t forget you are the one who makes your day great. You can do all things through Christ Jesus.

WSSU - Scarlet Lace - Labor Day 2009

These are the Outfits me and Angie were up until 4am sewing and embroidering....The back read ♥ SCARLET LACE ♥ Weekends in Winston! ..WSSU...
Someone had brightened my day so I just wanted to send something to brightened yours! Stay Blessed!
Acts 16:25-26

But about midnight, as Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the [other] prisoners were listening to them,
26Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the very foundations of the prison were shaken; and at once all the doors were opened and everyone's shackles were unfastened.

This bible passage speaks of two great men of God who wanted to do and stand for what was right. In the midst of that, the enemy rose up against them and put them inside an inner prison (dungeon), but something extraordinary happened. At midnight they prayed and sang praises and it changed everything. It changed their situation. It caused a great earthquake!
An earthquake so powerful that it shook the very foundations of the prison which caused every door to be opened and everyone’s shackles to be loosed and they were free. Today you need to know that God is going to orchestrate a prison break in your life. I know it may feel like midnight. It is dark. You feel like you are alone, and you have never been in this place in your life, but God has not forgotten about you. Don't stop your praying, your believing, or your praising. You be encouraged this morning, that God has plans to set you free. FREE INDEED.
Hold on and stay strong. You are coming out of this and when you come out you are going to bring some people out of the prison with you.

Your day has officially started!

Have a great day (The midnight hour is gone)
Be wonderfully blessed
