Praying Ahead - January 2, 2020 

"Two things I ask of you, O Lord... keep falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.  Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you, or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God."  Proverbs 30:7-9 

These few verses in Proverbs 30 were spoken by some guy named Agur, who was the son of some other guy named Jakeh.  I don't know much about either of them, but I sure like Agur's words and heart.  Like Solomon who asked God for…

So why am I here? - August 23, 2018  

Do you ever ask yourself why you are here?   What purpose you have? 

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared in advance, that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10 

God made us uniquely to bring himself joy and He has things He's prepared for us to do. 

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another; as good stewards of God's varied grace"  I Peter 4:10 

We get to use our gifts to serve others and glorify God!  And I so LOVE that we were ALL…

Ash White Wednesday - March 1, 2017 

These last weeks in February we had temps in the 50's and the birds were chirping from tree tops, singing songs of spring!  Then Ash Wednesday arrived.

We began the season of Lent, a six-week time of preparing for Easter.  All over the world, Christians go to church and place ashes on their foreheads (in the shape of a cross) as a symbol of repentance.  They are reminded of their sin and mortality, spending moments in sadness; darkness; Black.   And on that day,  March 1, the snow began falling - after all…Read more

BOLD SILENCE - November 16, 2016 

It seems cruel at first glance.  Within two weeks of receiving my newest CD "Bold" - with all these fun new arrangements and great songs that I can't wait to share - an unwelcome visitor named STREP arrives - and my voice departs!  

My passion of singing is on hold and I can hardly speak.  To make matters worse,  I'm forced to drink TEA, which I despise, and I'm going days without exercise - one of my favorite daily gifts that bring me a healthy emotional balance (affording me the indulgence of chocolate!)…Read more

Moving Forward - June 22, 2016 

It's summer and that means green is surrounding us, representing growth and new life as God moves us forward!   Speaking of moving forward... 

-My fifth CD is nearing completion and should be available for pre-order by August 1.  It's been an interesting adventure, as always.  God actually surprised me with a new ballad last month, written for my teens, but applicable to anyone who needs to let go of someone, and cut the strings holding them. This new ballad STRINGS will end up replacing the lent song I…
