I am thankful for my nearly lifelong friendship with Denise and that, although we live miles away, we continue our friendship!
so Karen, are also a singer, or play music yourself? I knew a mother whose daughter Karen remained in Brazil after the mother/daddy/ two female siblings returned to the states after a missionary appointment that had been their work. A mother whose life set an example for us gals...I held her in high esteem and frequently think back to "how Barbara would react or act in minute happenings of my day" and am blessed to have known yall in North Carolina...if, in fact, it's U
so, Karen! can you sing/play also? and if so, are you at any place where this Christian music is sung so that you can be a part of worship of our great and mighty God we serve? I
pray so...and, if you , yourself, happen to be the daughter of a couple that saw fit to take their family and spend 25 years in the tremendous effort of witnessing of Christ Jesus to the people who had never met Christ ~ leaving you there to be a
wife, mother, ?doctor when they returned to the states and then retired....why! I heard of you through your parents, my neighbors. For 25 or 30 years I have not seen them, but have continued to pray for their well-being and the dad's health and to practice so many excellent behaviors which I observed in daily life; true mentors of II Timothy 1:7 which is my favorite verse: FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR BUT OF POWER/LOVE/Sound Mind (or self-control some translations have it)
I am very thankful that you guys are still putting out great music! Honestly, I think your last CD is still in the same slot in the CD player of my truck as the day I bought it when it first came out. We listen to it all the time. I have always loved your music and my daughter has grown up listening to you guys. In fact, during those really bad days of the "terrible 2's and 3's" often times your songs playing in my truck is what helped to calm her down . .so a HUGE "thank you". ;o)
I am glad you bring up these points of thankfulness for the little things in life. My addition to these would be the unanswered prayer. I sometimes think God dosent hear my prayers when in fact he does. I get upset at times when my prayer is not answered but than a little voice inside my soul tells me that God made a desicion to not let me get hurt... Pete
I'm so excited for your new album to come out!!! Pretty sure it will be your best one yet!! Just love all the songs I've heard so far and how the show your precious hearts!!
Much love always,
Between all the things I'm grateful for, I am grateful for Point of Grace.. all of your songs and your example of life have meant lots in my life! As a student and someone who dreams about having a family and being a mom, you are like my role models! Love ya gals!!
Karen, from Brazil!
