Fullfilled promises

I wrote yhis poem in 2003. Todays message at Church inspired me to read it again. I want to share it with you.


She was a young girl
With a heart of purity
She lived in Bethlehem
Her name was Mary

She was a poor girl
From a poor part of town
But in the Lord's eyes
She wore a robe and a crown

The Angel Gabriel brought her the news that day
And she said yes
And through her reputation away

Heavy, burdened
With a child in her womb
They searched and searched
But could find no room

So this Princess
Bore the King of Heaven
In a stable
With sheep, hay, and oxen

What she saw
Was so amazing that night
She saw her Saviour
Filled with majesty and light
Being worshiped, by Shepherds and Kings
How amazing, to be the Mother to THE KING

The barn was filled with God's presence
A mark of this young girls life
This lowly, hurting, young women
Witnessed, the birth of JESUS CHRIST

Today the message preached at City Central was about Christmas, but Jerry Fry ended the message with a profound statement. "Christmas isn't just about Jesus being born. It's about fullfilled promises."  How many of you are waiting on fullfilled promises?  I am. My ministry, a HUSBAND!  Ha ha ha.  I love this verse.  It is spoken by Elizabeth, when she sees Mary and John the Baptist leaps in her womb.  Luke 1:45 "Blessed is she who believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"  This is a total woman power moment!! Two annointed sisters, sharing a Holy encouragement moment. How empowering!! I say to all my sistas out there, including me,  "Blessed is she who believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"  God will answer our hearts desires, and bring to fruition our desires, gifting, talents and callings. He fullfills His promises!!

Perfect love cast out fear

I experienced perfect love that casts out fear this past weekend. I am an artist, and I had the wonderful opportunity to display my art by Pollie and Paul at Mousai Studios downtown Tacoma.  This past weekend they hosted a gala in my honor, to show of my art from the past 10 years.  It was a beautiful evening that I will never forget. My family and friends were all in the same place, at the same time. Everyone had fun and danced. I felt so beautiful and honored.  The perefect love that I experienced that night changed me.  I pray that everyone will press into God's good, pleasing, and perfect will, for when you experience it, there is no joy you can find elsewhere.  Perfect love comes from a pure heart, a sincere faith, and a good conscience.
