HEAVEN SERENADE: You Really Love Me

HEAVEN SERENADE: You Really Love Me

  Many of us grew up with poor self-esteem. Most of our lives were spent trying to prove how smart, how pretty, or how valuable we were. All of our personal and career achievements were saying to the world… “You see, I am worth loving and respecting.” Before I knew the Lord, that was my goal to prove… I was somebody. I became popular by singing, dancing, cheerleading, acting, and other things. Then, when I gave my heart to Jesus,…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Your Precious Body

HEAVEN SERENADES: Your Precious Body

  In our Del Webb community, we have a women’s group called, “Enjoying God.” The group was formed by me inviting a group of women together for water aerobics. Eventually, the weather got too cold in our outside pool, and with social distancing, we couldn’t do water aerobics together in our inside lane pool. We didn’t want to leave each other, so the Lord led me to start a fellowship group. My sisters-in-Christ meet once a month to share our…

CELEBRATING THE RESURRECTION 2021

  We Are Risen With Him… Yes, We Are Risen With Him Indeed!    In this glorious season of celebrating the crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord, I want to reflect on the reason for our Lord coming into the earth in the first place… it was for OUR SAKE.       On Easter or Resurrection Sunday, the Orthodox, Catholic, and other liturgical churches greet each other with, “The Lord Is Risen” and the other person responds,…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Holding You Close

(Heaven Serenades are poems to be read or sung, called Psalms)   Our nation is going through such deep sorrow with the loss of so many innocent lives to gun violence… my heart is broken. In the midst of tragedy, grief, and loss, we can feel hopeless. Sometimes the pain is so overwhelming, we can’t even look or think about it.

HEAVEN SERENADES: Yes Father, Here IT Is

  (Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)   We all struggle with something in our lives that we are trying to fix. We have tried all of our resources in fixing this one thing; I know the struggles well. But, I have learned a valuable lesson over the years and that is, whenever I am trying to make something work or trying to attain a particular goal and can’t reach it, or trying to…

HEAVEN SERENADES: I Came For That One

HEAVEN SERENADES: I Came For That One

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)   We are so blessed by our Lord in so many wonderful ways, right? But sometimes, if we aren’t careful, because we are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ, material wealth, such as homes, cars, money, and jobs, we can become insensitive to the needs of those who are less fortunate. It is so easy to forget why Jesus died; to save, heal, and care for broken…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Joshuas in the Land

HEAVEN SERENADES: Joshuas in the Land

(Heaven Serenades are poems to be read or song called Psalms) This blog is written because of a conversation I had with some of my sisters in Christ, who I love and adore. We are concerned about our nation and where we are headed; we are calling, ‘good’ ‘evil’ and ‘evil’ ‘good.’ We also are erasing sexual genders from our vocabulary. Our Father created us Male and Female. And, He ordained the sanctity of marriage to be One Man and…

HEAVEN SERENADES: In This Place There is Grace

  Our outward man is perishing, can you feel it? Our bodies are not holding up like they used to, right? Do you hear the creaks and cracks as you move around or get up in the morning? If you don’t, great. One day you will. As we age, we discover a whole new way of looking at life. Even our conversations about life and death change. As our eyes grow dimmer, it is really a blessing because some of…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Break Forth Light of God

  Have you ever been stuck spiritually? It felt like you weren’t growing in your relationship with God? You were praying, reading, studying, or just going through the motions, and it appeared as if, this is it? But, you wanted more, so much more in your relationship with the Lord but you just couldn’t seem to find the answer to why you were the way you were.  Our brother David felt this way many times and wrote these words in…
