Giving thanks on today is particularly special for most because It’s Thanksgiving.

And not only because it’s Thanksgiving, but because it’s also a time when

family and friends come together near and far to celebrate this joyous occasion and to be thankful for one another.

The Surrender Healing Retreat 2015

Happy Thursday!!!

Get Excited!!! (As one of the women from last years retreat would often say)
This weekend we are about to embark on a momentous, powerful experience with God.
The Surrender Healing Retreat!!!

And just to get you prepared and ready for this weekend I thought I would re-share with you last years experience.
It was more then I would have ever expected. God showed up in ways we would not have imagined.
Enjoy!!!
Whoa, WOW, Whew, re-donk-culous is all I can say about The Surrender Healing Retreat this past weekend hosted by Dr. Celeste Owens Ministries (DCOM)!!!

For me, this was one of, if not the best experiences of the movement of God I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending.

I can’t even begin to explain how thick the anointing of God was. From the first moment I walked into the conference room, I sensed that this was going to be something all together different from the norm, and boy was I right!

From the first stroke of the cord on the keyboard you could since the stirring of the Holy Spirit. And when the worshippers ministered in song you knew then that  this was going to be something you hadn’t expected.

It was like the cloud and weight of His glory was descending on our room and He was simply saying “Welcome to your new beginning.” Even as I write, the tears are trickling down my cheeks. God is simply Amazing!!!

Lady Malinda Chisholm, Joy Briscoe, Karen Ward, Dr. Celeste Owens, Pastor Deborah Evans, Nichole Thomas, and Tyra Lane-Kingsland allowed God to move and speak freely through them. It was simply awe-inspiring to watch. They spoke with authority and unashamed love for our God. They weren’t afraid to veer from what they thought would be important to say in order to fulfill God’s wishes by speaking what the Holy Spirit was giving them to say. And as they spoke what the Spirit had given them to speak, you could feel each level of God’s presence elevating to higher heights and deeper depths, even in our Christian Yoga sessions!

“Give Thanks!”

Give thanks
With a grateful heart
Give thanks
To the Holy One
Give thanks
Because He’s given
Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say
“I am strong”
Let the poor say
“I am rich”
Because of what the Lord
Has done for us
Give thanks

Happy Thursday!!!

Confessions of a (Married) Night Owl

Happy Thursday!!!

So I have a confession to make…I’m a night owl.

Personally I had always been fine with that. I’d stay up into the wee hours of the morning watching movies and then sleep until noon, sometimes 1pm. Upon awakening I would lounge in the bed, eventually get something to eat, do what I needed to do then start the same routine all over again. Ahh the life! Or so I thought.

Fast forward to 2008. God blessed me to marry one of the greatest men in the world. He’s everything I never knew wanted. I say this because I hadn’t planned on being married, but thank God that He sees and knows what is best for us, even when we think we got it all together.
Again he’s a great husband and father. He’s as handsome as can be and he loves the Lord with his whole being. The only issue I have with him is that he’s…a morning person. Ugh!!!!
Yes, he wakes up, opens every blind and even sings and plays music on some mornings. In fact there are times he will start his own personal worship service just three feet away from the bed. It can be a nightmare.

Happy Holidays!
