Sooooooooooo I decided to try out a VLOG. I'm nervous but I'm posting it. I do want to apologize again for my hair lol. I have it brushed and pinned in the back because I didn't feel like curing it. Lazy! It was an impromptu decision and I ran with it. I may sound throaty because I've had some issues there which caused me to go from a soprano to a high alto smh. Don't know what that's all about but...let me stop being so picky!

Thanking you in advance for viewing my debut! emoticon

I always wanted to be in pictures!!! emoticon

Love & Blessings

Just Wanted To Share A Word From Kenneth Copeland...

Are you looking forward to 2013 with as much anticipation as I am? A few months ago, God told me to tell our Partners and Friends, "This is a great lifting-up time. We're going up!"

He showed me He was talking about His resurrection power to raise us up out of our and now! Raising people up is what God does. It's why Jesus came. It's why God gave us His Holy Spirit. When we regard Paul's words in Ephesians 2:6 as our position--we've been raised up together and seated in heavenly places in Him--we will see things differently. By the power of the Spirit, we can get the absolutely right vantage point on our lives and everything that's going on around us. We will know that
we do not have to be "under the circumstances." No, the circumstances are under us.

Amen! Sparkers, I'm Staying IN My Seat IN CHRIST IN HEAVENLY PLACES!!!
Ephesians 2:6 NIV

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.

I trust you have HIGH HOPES IN CHRIST for a GREATER 2013 In EVERY Area Of Your Lives As I. God IS Faithful! HIS Word Is TRUE! It Will NEVER Return Void!!!

I'm Staying Seated In That VICTORY Seat No Matter What It Looks Like! Everything Is UNDER My FEET!!! I Look DOWN On the enemy!

Have A Beautiful Last Weekend In 2012!!!
Love & Blessings

I had my son take some pictures of me 12/24/12 to show what The Lord Has Done for Me!

I'm Celebrating with Jesus but I won't eat TOO much cake! emoticon

It's NOT worth such GREAT progress as this!

Celebrate Jesus!

He Celebrates Us!

This is worth MORE than ALL the riches in the world to me:


May You ALL Enjoy A Christmas Filled With God's Presence And May His Love Flood Your Hearts As You Remember The Gift He Gave Us In JESUS! I Think He Wants Us To LOVE One Another As HIS Gift!

Much Love To You All!
