October 2011   

The leaves are beginning to change color....which I love to see....they begin to fall, I just really don't like to rake them up........this season tells us that the fall is setting in....and of course we are in the last 3 months of the year of our Lord 2011.... ANOTHER YEAR CLOSER TO THE RETURN OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

What a year it has been....wow! And, of course, God has been sooooo faithful to me....He never fails to supply the needs of the Ministry....and that is what He promised when I had my farewell luncheon at the Telephone Company to walk out into full-time Ministry....He has....as the scripture He gave me that day says ....Matthew 6:26....and is what I have held onto these 33 years of full-time Ministry.

Matthew 6:26 - Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them.

The first weekend of the month found me in San Jose, CA....in the church where everything began for me in this Singing Ministry....I was the soloist for a TV Program at Cathedral of Faith with Pastor Kenny Foreman....and it is always so special when I return....what a weekend....Pastor Foreman and I were able to sing the song we sang as a duet when I was there...."Through it All"....here we are at rehearsal. The people loved it....we celebrated his 81st birthday. He and his wife, Shirley, are very special to me.

Psalms 133:1 - Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.

As I drive down my street and if a garage door is up....I see soooooo much "stuff"....so much that the car has to be left on the outside in the driveway....so the "stuff" can be stored in the garage. The folk in my complex look forward to the annual garage sale each year....it begins at 7am and many, many, folk are walking the streets....I try to bring things out that I no longer need, and believe me....it seems that folk will "buy anything"....I feel that God also wants us to regularly ask Him to search our hearts and remove any and everything that is there that should not be....I want His help, so I will not bring more "things into my life"....Don't you feel that way?

Hebrews 12:1 - .....let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

I heard that my long-time friends, Bebe and Cece Winans were in concert near my house....it was a free concert and was jam-packed....at least 5,000 folk....they were in town to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame....they let us know that the person who gave them their start was in the audience....it was Jim Bakker....and his wife Lori....as you might remember....Jim hosted the PTL show....Bebe and Cece were singers there...We see how God has used them to touch the world through their singing....and I was able to connect with Jim and Lori....they are great friends also.

On the 4th Sunday of each month....there is an exciting praise and prayer service at my church....Pastor preaches about prayer....for about 15 minutes....then the praise team comes forward....leads us to the throne with anointed music....Pastor returns and MY! MY! MY! there is an anointed incredible time of intercessory prayer....folk are prostrate before the Lord crying out for mercy....and we know God is hearing us.

I am still speaking/singing for Senior Groups....I was blessed to return to a church where I have ministered for many years....Bethel Church in San Jose....God spoke a good word to them. If you would like to have me come to your Seniors Group....Ladies Function....or even your church....please let me know....and I will be happy to come....We will all be blessed. My phone number is 909-948-2448.

Very soon....I should be able to get my new CD in the mail....You may order from my website....I believe you will be touched as you listen to those familiar songs. A special thanks to those of you who contributed to the production of this project.... if you did not and would like to....it is not too late . I will place your name on the CD insert as a donor....you will receive a complemtary CD plus a tax-deduction for your gift....and God will bless you for being a blessing to me, You can send a check....use Paypal ....or your credit card....Thanks....By supporting this Ministry, you are enabling me to continue to bless the world through Song and the Spoken Word. And, of course....it will be added to your account in Heaven. May God richly bless you. Special thanks to you who give to the Ministry....and, of course you who pray for me and encourage me.

What another great opportunity I had this month....being a small part of the Annual Camp Meeting for Teen Challenge here at "The Castle" in Riverside....During praise and worship time, they have their hands lifted high to praise God....they know He is certainly worthy of all our praise. I love to sing with the choir of the men in the program....whose lives have been changed....we always get to sing "O Happy Day"....They sing with so much gusto ....cause they remember how their lives have been changed....since they have had their "Happy Day" ....when Jesus washed all their sins away.

Tent Camp Meeting at
Teen Challenge - Riverside

2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

My prayer for you is that you will be able to hear the voice of God as He gives you direction for your life. Remember He will never take you where He has not been.

Isaiah 41:10 - Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with My victorious right hand.

See ya next time.....
Happy to be His Handmaiden,
