Amps

A tube amp, is convenient, when you are traveling around performing.  I suppose that certain groups who perform for church activities, would benefit from the  mesa boogie mini rectifier  and be easy to pack for the trips.  Shopping for any musical instrument or unit can be time consuming.  It's easy to go online and shop then have your purchase shipped to your place.  Click on the above link and search for the unit you want.

THE BLUE

Thursday evening the life in and around Dallas, TX, became full of death and fear.  Five police officers lost their lives to one sniper's assault on what he considered the enemy, "Whites".  The five who died were white and he was a black man with many frustration's about the situations in our country, pertaining to "blacks" being shot by "white" cops.  
Many towns have come forward to lead in vigils to honor the fallen and show support to local police who still actively serve their local areas and towns.  
We are finding that more evil has come of the situation, which happened on Thursday.  On Saturday and added threat came to the DPD headquarters, and they were put under lock down most of the afternoon, while "Swat" teams combed the area where a suspect was reported to be.  This is just too much and must stop!  Too much is being heaved on these individuals at this time and needs to cease.  Prayers, are certainly a must as we strive to get through this tragic time.

Musical Instruments

If you've ever played in a band then you are accustomed with the woodwind section.  It takes many instruments to make up beautiful music and woodwinds are a very nice part.  Look into the  wwbw woodwinds brasswinds  link and find what is new in this category.  I can remember metal clarinets, back in my days, and maybe they are finding a need of such instruments once again?

Health

Health, has become a big issue these days, with many people.  I hear that there are many new ways of treating certain problems.  Realizing this has come a long ways, since people relied on God as their healer and waited upon his help in times of need.  It's comes as no surprise that our world has moved beyond the traditions of believing in God, and running to the doctors.  Yet, I wonder if you realize, who gave the doctors the knowledge to make a difference in medical science?  The abilities they have come from the blessings of our God, in the form of knowledge and teachers of the education, plus pioneer discoveries in this area.

Quilt of Life

Before each of us laid our lives like the squares of a quilt in many piles; an angel sat before each of us sewing our quilt squares together into a tapestry that is our life. But as my angel took each piece of cloth off the pile, I noticed how ragged and empty each of my squares was.  They were filled with
giant  holes.  Each square was labeled with a part of my life that had been difficult, the challenges and temptations I was faced with in every day life.  I saw hardships that I endured, which were the largest holes of all.

I glanced around me.  Nobody else had such squares.  Other than a tiny
hole here and  there, the other tapestries were filled with rich color and the bright hues of worldly fortune.  I gazed upon my own life and was disheartened. My angel was sewing the ragged pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like binding air. Finally the time came when each life was to be displayed, held up to the light, the scrutiny of truth.  The others rose; each in  turn, holding up their tapestries.  So filled their lives had been.  My angel looked upon me and nodded for me to rise. My gaze dropped to the ground in shame.  I hadn't had all the earthly fortunes.  I had love in my life and laughter.  But there had also been trials of illness and wealth, and false accusations that took from me my world, as I knew it.  I had to start over many times.  I often struggled with the temptation to quit, only to somehow muster the strength to pick up and begin again.  I spent many nights on my knees in prayer, asking for help and guidance in my life..  I had often been held up to ridicule, which I endured painfully, each time offering it up to the Father in hopes that I would not melt within my skin beneath the judgmental gaze of those who unfairly judged me. And now, I had to face the truth..  My life was what it was, and I had to accept it for what it was. I rose and slowly lifted the combined squares of my life to the light. An awe-filled gasp filled the air.  I gazed around at the others who stared at me with wide eyes. Then, I looked upon the tapestry before me. Light flooded the  many holes, creating an image, the face of Christ.  Then our Lord stood before me, with warmth and love in His eyes.  He said, 'Every time you gave over your life to Me, it became My life, My hardships, and My struggles. Each point of light in your life is when you stepped aside and let Me shine through, until there was more of Me than there was of you.'

May all our quilts be threadbare and worn, allowing Christ to shine through!

I thought this was beautiful and wanted to share it with you as a friend did with me.........

Easter

Today, is what Christain's, consider a celebration of "Easter."  They reflect on the "death and resurrection" of Jesus Christ the Son of God. 
You find this time to be one of which churches can expound upon as being full of worshipers.  They know there are still many who will want to come for services during this particular time.  It's sad that this certain holiday celebration, can be so commercialized.  Yet, if the ladies and little girls didn't have a place to wear their pretty Easter frocks, it would turn into a straight "egg hunt" for fashion.
I'm sure that if one searches further into the truth behind this celebration, they can find the real meaning of the holiday.  Jesus Christ came into the world, gave his life and conquered death, hell and the grave, so that we have the hope of eternal life in him and his father God.

It Is Finished!

What a wonderful video

My Thanks

Have you ever been out somewhere and thought you had left something cooking on the stove?  Well, it's not the first time I've rushed home to find whether or not made such a mistake.
About 5 years ago, I did and there was a big mess to clean when I got back.  Boiled eggs that have blown up all over the place, don't smell too great.  It's takes a few minutes to find all the broken shell parts and get them cleaned up. 
Recently, I found myself driving when the thought came to me that I might have left a pan on the stove and it would be red hot, if I did.  I could see all types of things happening, like the house catching on fire.
I started praying while driving as legally as I could to get back, and thanks to the Lord, he answered prayer.  The pan was cold and the stove was off..........a sigh of relief came across me as I thanked him for his goodness.

Some One I Knew

He was one of the boys who made up a family, my children grew up with.  You don't think about them dying before their parents.  It's not accepted during a parents lifetime.  Yet, for some reason or another, it does happen and still not an easy thing to accept.
It may happen because of bad health, an accident or some other reason, we don't like to talk about.  Yes, the death of a child, is something parents dread living through.  I've faced the possibility several times, during my life.  The mother of five, has given me a glimpse of what might happen during certain circumstances.  I have been fortunate where death is concerned. 
A long time friend, wasn't as lucky.  I feel so bad for her, because she and I are in the senior years of our lives.  All I am able to do is give her my friendship, during this time..........  I know her son, must have suffered and is now in a better place.  It's not fair but life doesn't deal us a fair hand.  My prayers are with her and their family during this time........

So Many

I haven't written any letters in recent months, because there weren't many that I knew close to write to or about.
Suddenly, the bottom fell out of earth.........and cast several souls into eternity........with their deaths.
I remember these as being acquaintances, I met down through the years and they touched my life in various ways.
I think of these people from a distance and yet, there were many times I sat with them and carried on a conversation.  It's sad to think of these people as being gone and that we will no longer be able to talk or visit with them.  I know their families will miss them and wish for another chance to say "I love you".
In the last few weeks I've had the unfortunate chance to hear of at least 3 people, I've known that have passed on.  I can only hope that they got the chance to talk to the Lord, before it all happened.
