SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 1, 2013

WE HAVE SWELTERING HEAT HERE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA …….THE KIND OF WEATHER I REMEMBER WHEN I LIVED THOSE 7 YEARS IN ORLANDO FLA…..HOT AND HUMID…COULD IT BE THAT GOD IS LETTING US EXPERIENCE HERE ON EARTH A BIT OF THE INTENSITY OF HELL HEAT?…..WHAT A PLACE IT IS GOING TO BE FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO GO THERE….THAT’S RIGHT “CHOOSE TO GO THERE”…..IT IS REALLY VERY SIMPLE..WE READ IN JOHN 3:16 THAT VERY FAMILIAR SCRIPTURE….FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE SENT HIS ONLY SON TO REDEEM US FROM THE CURSE OF SIN…AND THAT IF WE BELIEVE….WE SHALL NOT PERISH…BUT SHALL HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE……IN HEAVEN WITH HIM….AS JESUS SAID IN JOHN 14:1-2….THAT HE HAS GONE AWAY TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR US…AND WHEN EVERYTHING IS READY…HE WILL COME AGAIN AND TAKE US TO LIVE WITH HIM FOREVER….SO WE NEED ONLY TO BELIEVE WE ARE A SINNER….ASK HIM TO COME TO LIVE IN OUR HEARTS….TO FORGIVE US OF ALL OUR SINS……LIVE A LIFE THAT IS PLEASING TO HIM…..AND WE CAN HAVE ASSURANCE KNOW THAT OUR “HOME” IS IN HEAVEN…INSTEAD OF HELL..I AM SOOOO THANKFUL THAT WHEN I WAS A VERY YOUNG GIRL I WAS ADOPTED INTO THE FAMILY OF GOD AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SPENDING ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS.

I DO LOOK FORWARD TO ATTENDING THE “PAGEANT OF THE MASTERS”….I BELIEVE I HAVE EXPLAINED IT BEFORE…..BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS….I’LL DO IT AGAIN (SMILE)….. THE STAGE IS HUGE…..IN THE PIT THERE IS A 32 PIECE ORCHESTRA……THERE ARE 150 VOLUNTEERS WHO ACTUALLY POSE FOR 2-3 MINUTES AS STATUES OF MARBLE, ETC, OR A PART OF A “MASTERS PAINTING”……AND IT IS AMAZING HOW REAL IT ALL IS…..I AM PROBABLY NOT DESCRIBING IT WELL (SMILE)….BUT YOU CAN GOOGLE IT AND READ MORE….. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO ATTEND….IT IS IN LAGUNA BEACH CA AND IS PRESENTED JULY 1-AUGUST 31 EACH YEAR… YOU WILL NOT REGRET THAT YOU WENT….THIS WAS THE 80TH YEAR. A VERY SPECIAL THING HAPPENED….I WAS SEATED BY A LADY WHO IS ONE OF THE MANY MAKE-UP ARTISTS….IT WAS HER NITE OFF…BUT SHE HAD COME TO WATCH THE SHOW FROM THE AUDIENCE VIEW….AND JUST CASUALLY ASKED IF I WOULD LIKE A BACKSTAGE TOUR?….. …..WELL, I COULDN’T BELIEVE THE OPPORTUINITY…..AND WHAT A TOUR!….TO SEE THE MAKEUP AND COSTUMES ROOMS…AND BE TOLD STEP BY STEP ….THE TIME LINE OF PREPARATIONS FOR THAT IMMENSE PRODUCTIONS….IT WAS MOST INTERESTING..GOD IS THE GIVER OF GOD GIFTS!

I AM SOOO THANKFUL TO GOD THAT BILL GAITHER IS KEEPING THE OLD SONGS ALIVE…..I ATTENDED A WONDERFUL HYMN SING THIS PAST WEEK AND WHAT A BLESSING TO HEAR THEM…..AND SING THEM……THE AUDIENCE LOVE SINGING ALONG WHILE BEING BLESSED…..I WAS ABLE TO SING THAT MOVING OLD HYMN “WONDERFUL PEACE”…..IT IS ON MY LATEST HYMN PROJECT AND IS ALWAYS A BLESSING WHEN I SING IT (CLICK HERE)

JOHN 14:27  –  “PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU….MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU….NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES…LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED…NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID”

I WAS SOOOO BLESSED WHEN I AWAKENED THE MORNING OF WEDNESDAY AUGUST 28TH …..AND REMEMBERED THAT IT WAS 35 YEARS AGO SINCE I “HUNG-UP” ON “MA BELL”…WHEN I WALKED OUT INTO FULL TIME MINISTRY….AND WHAT EXCITING 35 YEARS I HAVE HAD!….TRAVELING THE WORLD…..PROCLAIMING THE GOOD NEWS OF MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. PERHAPS THE MOST EXCITING PART IS THAT GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL TO MEET EACH AND EVERY NEED…..I HAVE NEVER TRULY NEEDED SOMETHING THAT HE DID NOT GIVE ME..HE ONLY ASKS US TO TRUST HIM….OH, I PRAY THAT YOU TRULY DO BELIEVE THIS.

PSALM 145:18  –  “GOD IS NEAR TO ALL WHO CALL UPON HIM…..”

WELL, I’M FINALLY GOING TO DO IT. I’M GOING TO GIVE UP MY FLIP PHONE FOR A SMART ONE (OR I THOUGHT I WAS….UNTIL I SAW THE PRICE OF THEM)…..SO I AM ASKING: IF ANYONE, OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, HAS A SAMSUNG S4 BECAUSE PERHAPS THEY HAVE UPGRADED TO THE S5 (SMILE)….PLEASE LET ME KNOW, SO I CAN BUY IT FROM THEM. THANKS.

MAY GOD BLESS THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE PARTNERED WITH ME TO CARRY OUT THE “ASSIGNMENT” I HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY GOD….I SO APPRECIATE YOUR LOVE AND COMMITMENT TO THIS MINISTRY….I AM ABLE TO GO….BECAUSE YOU GIVE….AND REMEMBER YOU WILL BE SENT A RECEIPT FOR YOUR GIFT AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED IN HEAVEN….IF YOU CANNOT GIVE…PLEASE PRAY, AND THAT IS AWESOME TOO…AND I THANK YOU ALSO (SMILE).

SEE YA NEXT TIME, I LOVE YOU!
