As a child growing up in the Stony Fork community of Deep Gap, NC me and my 3 brothers played outside a lot. On Lawrence Greene Road, we were all family. So when we went outside to play, Mom would always say, just tell us where you are going. In later years, the same was told to us as teenagers, “Tell us where you are going!”
Today in my memories I can still hear Mom and Dad saying that so clearly. Yet right now, those words take on a new meaning for me and those that believe. In our life’s journey, we need to TELL IT TO A FEW CLOSE FRIENDS sharing the good news to those who are searching for something this world just can’t provide. It is time for us to RISE AND SHINE.
JOURNEY is a collection of songs that shares hope, JOY FOR THE JOURNEY, peace, forgiveness and destination. It is my prayer you will find strength and be SATISIFED as he is GUIDING ALL THE WAY. In those times of struggle, you will be able to pray JESUS TAKE A HOLD and with confidence knowing NOW MORE THAN EVER SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY will overtake you. When you can’t find the strength to make it, you can know HERE COMES JESUS and HE WILL ROLL YOU OVER THE TIDE! Yes, there is ONE MORE RIVER TO CROSS but you won’t CROSS JORDAN ALONE.

The Best Day of My Life
Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever!
There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did! And because I did I'm going to celebrate! Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.
I will go through this day with my head held high, and a happy heart. I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds.
Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice. Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people. I'll make someone smile. I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know.
Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for her and how much she means to me.
Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me. I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.
Tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.
As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow, I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life. And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child, excited with expectation because I know tomorrow is going to be the best day of my life, ever!
