A VOTE FOR MAYOR TOM REID ON SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017 IS A VOTE TO KEEP PEARLAND, TEXAS MOVING FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE



MAYOR TOM REID CAN KEEP PEARLAND MOVING FORWARD: Make no mistake about it, Mayor Tom Reid appreciates the vote and support of every Pearlander – from every walk of life and ethnicity. It takes a "SPECIAL KIND OF PERSON" to represent a city as diverse as Pearland – and Mayor Tom Reid is that kind of person. A lot of folks are talking about how Pearland, Texas has grown over the years; but you just can’t have a real discussion about the growth, prosperity and vitality of this bustling city without mentioning the name Tom Reid. After all, when Mayor Reid got involved in Pearland it only had about 4,000 residents – over the years this number has ballooned to over 144,100 today. As an ambassador for Pearland for more than 52 years Mayor Tom Reid deserves the right to exit public office (when he decided to do so) under his own terms. That’s why Pearlanders should "HELP HIM SECURE HIS LEGACY" and reward him with another term to continue building upon his successes; secure his legacy; beat back the forces seeking to divide Pearland; and continue to serve as a steady hand that’s able and willing to move Pearland forward into the future. Early voting will begin on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 and end on Tuesday, June 6, 2017. Election Day is on Saturday, June 10, 2017 – A vote for Mayor Reid is a vote to “KEEP PEARLAND MOVING FORWARD!” So don’t forget to vote!



DALIA KASSEB IS THE RIGHT CHOICE IN THE SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017 RUNOFF ELECTION FOR PEARLAND CITY COUNCIL POSITION #7



PEARLANDERS ARE URGED TO PUT PARTY POLITICS ASIDE IN THIS NONPARTISAN RACE: Dalia Kasseb, our choice in the Saturday, June 10, 2017 Runoff Election for Pearland City Council Position #7 is not the “PROHIBITIVE FAVORITE” in this race. Look, many political pundits are simply looking at the election returns from the Saturday, May 6, 2017 General Election and not delving deeper into the “CANVASS REPORTS” for Brazoria County -- this is a common mistake. These reports show Dalia Kasseb perhaps having a little trouble in a “HEAD-TO-HEAD-SHOWDOWN” with a Conservative like Woody Owens in some key areas in a county as conservative as Brazoria County -- where Pearland happens to reside. Make no mistake about it, Dalia Kasseb is going to need a large turnout from "OPENMINDED PEARLANDERS" to win this race. She will need these "OPENMINDED PEARLANDERS" to be willing to put “PARTY POLITICS ASIDE” and “REJECT DIVISIVE RHETORIC” on Saturday, June 10, 2017 to be successful in her bid to make history in Brazoria County. If elected, Pearland, Texas would be getting a "UNIQUELY QUALIFIED BUSINESSWOMAN" as the representative for the newly created Pearland City Council Position #7 seat. And, by electing Dalia Kasseb, Pearlanders would also be sending the world a very strong and clear message that: “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” is truly a "LAND OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY” for all her citizens. Please don’t forget that early voting will last from Tuesday, May 30, 2017 to Tuesday, June 6, 2017. Election Day voting will take place on Saturday, June 10, 2017. Don’t forget to vote!

COLUMN: Forgiving Those Who Hurt And Offend You -- By Dr. Gregg Thomas for Market Place Leaders














































Dr. Gregg's God's Modern Day Millionaires Devotional for Market Place Leaders, A 28 Day Devotional, Fear, Faith and The Blood 


Day 18 of 31 "Forgiving Those Who Hurt and Offend You" 

Sometimes you will experience people who are family and friends that will hurt and offend you. Holding on to un-forgiveness will only hurt you and keep you from getting to the next level. Genesis 13 Abraham was successful in life because he learned how to walk in total forgiveness. The word forgive means "to give up". Forgiveness is not just a dramatic statement or outer act in which you say, "I am sorry," when you know you are not. But when you truly forgive someone it becomes an act of the heart (the soul of man, his mind, will, emotions and intellect). When you have forgiven someone the peace of God will come upon you whenever you see or think of the person that violated your trust or abused your relationship. In Abraham's case, in order to keep peace in his family and between the herdsmen of his nephew Lot, he ended up giving up the fertile and productive land that the Lord had promised him. At the same time he did not allow un-forgiveness, resentment, anger, bitterness, revenge or even hatred to enter into his life. Abraham was at peace. Whenever God blessed him he always acknowledged Him by building an altar. The secret to this Biblical Millionaire was he practiced and believed in obedience and worship.

Did you know that negative emotions like anger, resentment and un-forgiveness that you hold toward someone or toward a situation can block your success or prosperity? Did you know that the negative emotions you hold on to of the present or the past can keep you tied to the person or situation you are attempting to get free from? It's called "Soul Ties". A soul tie is when you are bound to a person or situation emotionally because they violated or abused your trust. Listen I have come to realize that as long as we live we are going to have to deal with violators and abusers of our trust. Often times we become vulnerable in our relationships. I don't know about you, but if someone has become my friend, I practice giving all of myself in the relationship. In other words, I believe in the old saying: "A friend in need is a friend in deed." I am like the Hog and not the Chicken." The Chicken only lays or gives an egg every now and then. However the Hog gives of himself totally. Are you the same way?

The following are Seven Things I had to do in order to move on; 
1. First thing I did was to forgive myself.

2. Forgive the person who hurt and offended you. Do as Jesus taught in the Lord 's Prayer. He taught His disciples to forgive your abuser on your knees daily in case someone might hurt you. Then if you have already forgiven, then when they hurt you, you are able to quickly move on all because you've already forgiven.

3. Don't rehearse the hurt.

4. Don't nurse the pain.

5. Don't cause or allow what happen to you to be repeated over and over again, even into the next generation among your children.

6. Be honest with yourself about your own weakness and areas of vulnerability that allowed you to get hurt in the first place.

7. Then last, Pray without ceasing.

Decree this with me, "Today is the beginning of a brand new day because I choose to walk in forgiveness. I choose to not allow the painful experiences of the past to continue to keep me bound in the past. I forgive those who hurt me and violated my trust. I also ask that You Dear God would forgive me for the pain I may have caused others. Teach me Oh God to Love others the way You love me. I am also sorry for the many times I ask you to forgive me, only to go right back repeating the same offense over and over again. Thanks You for not giving up on me in Jesus Name.
