No Generation Gap Here...or is there...

Never mind!! It doesn't matter...

I was in the kitchen doing the dishes - looking out over the pond and the blue sky - this song came to my mind and I began to sing - not too loud - nobody else could hear me. Randy was outside mowing the grass and Miss O was in her bedroom with the door closed...

I turned the water off just about the time I finished a verse...

...and I hear Olivia begin to belt out "....all I know is I'm not home yet. This is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus. This is not where I belong! When the earth shakes, I wanna be found in You. When the lights fade, I wanna be found in You...."

Tears filled my eyes and my heart smiled as I realized we are both on the same page.

Different decades.

Same message.

No generation gap here.


Train up a child in the way he should go:

and when he is old,

he will not depart from it.

-Proverbs 22:6


In My Father’s house are many mansions;

if it were not so, I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go and prepare a place for you,

I will come again and receive you to Myself;

that where I am, there you may be also.

-John 14:2-3

That brought tears. So beautiful that mother and daughter are worshipping at the same time. I pray you will receive your recovery from all the symptoms of MS. By Hs is finished!
