Happy Thanksgiving

The key to thankfulness is not to view God through
the lens of our circumstances, but to view our circumstances
through the lens of God’s love and sovereign purpose” 
(Anne Graham Lotz).



I can escape into God’s presence thankful for all the spiritually engaging people that have contributed to the joys of my life that make me smile a little wider.

You all push me into new paradigms of thinking. You have accepted me with your arms, open wide and uplifted my spirit in so many ways.

Thank you for all the joyous musical moments you have shared with me.  And thank you for all the times that you were a witness to my strengths in action.

When I weigh my mountains on a scale, it is glaringly obvious that you all encourage my mind and help me to chip away at my doubts and fears. You all help me to experience a deep sense of calm and that peaceful feeling is awesome.

I know I can depend on God because he brought you into my life and filled it with love. I now recognize the importance of acknowledging the deep knowing that you play a huge role in my life.

When I sachet my hips back and forth while I am on the stage singing with a smile of humor and frankness even when sometimes, it is with an empty fuel tank of energy, it is because you all push me into a level of self-acceptance. You help me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You leave the amazing impression on me that there is still hope. You are like the kisses that were worth waiting for that give me a tranquil outlook on life. You all are a staple in my life and I thank you so much for being a part of my world.



As I spend the day experiencing joy with my family and celebrating Thanksgiving Day, I hope that you all have good, deep moments in your day. Safe travels to all those moving around to get to their point of celebration. I pray that love fills your day and that the volcano brewing inside bursts into electric joy and blessings. 

Whatever it is that you do, that it may be meaningful and generate for you a smile. That peace of minds may be yours for the taking and the keeping. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Enjoy!
