I want to pay tribute to wonderful people I have known, the wonderful country in which I live, the communities in which I have lived, the churches who have claimed me as their own, the God who sends shivers down my back when I really give him a portion of my time—well, maybe not shivers but tears flow easily in some of those most priceless times.

oh your words speak of are both power and humility.
Thank you Oneta!!
I so hope I achieve my purpose – to show blessings of a Godly heritage to this generation and reach families with Christian members to know it is worth it! When God directs your path, He will walk you through it. Thank you, Dear Friend.
You don’t know how much I appreciate you Oneta!!
God doesn’t differentiate between the standers and the sitters. He loves all of us. Thankfully, because I prefer sitting in church too.
LOL. I can think of God better when my feet don’t hurt!
So good to read, Oneta. 🙂
Sweet words. Thank you, dear Encourager.
You didn’t mention your major in college.
It has been my experience that “new and improved” should be labeled “different and not necessarily better.” Never thought of that happening in churches as well.
My degrees: BA Education and Sociology, Adams State College, Alamosa Co: MA: Education, Bethany Nazarene College Specialist: Reading also from BNC; Doctorate of Ministry, American Christian College and Seminary (private college, no longer in existence because of lack of funds) It was nationally accredited by the Department of Education and Christian Higher Education Assoc. at the time I got my degree. I do not have a Master of Divinity Degree which is sometimes requited before receiving the D.M.
WOW! Thanks for sharing you major(s). What a committment to your faith. Were you married while you were in college or wait until afterward?
Long after. We spent the first years putting Sammy through while I worked as a Secretary to the Supervisor of Services for the Blind (most of that time, some at Tinker Air Force Base. I didn’t get my BA until I was thirty-one. Got the DMin when I was seventy-one. My, you are pulling out the memories.
INTERESTING! Thank you. As I struggle in 2021 to remember and write my memoirs – about God in my life and discoveries …..I am poignantly reminded of how separated as a teen in many ways I was, yet how very different our two lives actually were.
Yet, how in Christ, they are today. the same.
It took me more than 18 years to discover and KNOW for myself WHO God really is. this journey of discovery took me to many uncertain and darker places spiritually. Finding the LIGHT and KNOWING Who the LIGHT is, is the reason why I am penning what I write this year. Shafts of Gold will be, if I finish it, a God story of discovering Him for myself after asking as a six year old “Who are you really?… Please show me.? I value so much the insight into your journey you have penned. Blessings!
Faye, God would only need one of us if we were alike. I’m glad He needs us both right here on planet earth right now. Smilin’ at you.
