Psalm 61

New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 61

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

Hear my cry, O God;
    listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to you,
    I call as my heart grows faint;
    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge,
    a strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in your tent forever
    and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

Graduation TEN in Texas

The Two Year Journey - TEN

My two year journey in The Eagle Network (TEN) has been an amazing one meeting great people and learning so many useful, inspiring, and anointed messages from Dr. Pamela Hardy's curriculum that I have been blessed. Coordinated by the inspiring Pastor Sumaya White from MA, this is a fantastic program.

My first year was in Long Island and the second year in Morristown NJ under Eagle Pamela Osborne. I have had the privilege of going to 3 summits, 2 of them while studying with the TEN. I have grown from it. Many times confirming things God has already taught me so I can stand on firm ground. I now understand the treasure that was already in me and has been stirred in me. I am ready to lead as a servant of the Most High God.

I graduated at the Summit in Texas and look forward to the local graduation in Morristown this Saturday with the other TEN since they did not join me in Texas.

I look forward to what God has for me to learn, experience, and teach others.

The Catalyst for Seasons of Purpose

Over 12 Years ago when I was with Dance for Joy Ministries, I was still using my marketing and publicity skills acquired from years working as an arts administrator.  All the company members worked very hard on that concert in many different ways. Marketing and publicity was my contribution which is why we were able to get this article from the New York Times.  As I read through this review and saw my name mentioned I was emotionally blown away. I think it took this article for me to realize that God had gifted me with something, and it was high time that I identify what those gifts are and pass them down before it is too late. Therefore, by that summer, I was given the vision for Seasons of Purpose. About a year later I met "somebody" who later became my husband. He became a part of the Seasons of Purpose vision. Reading this again I realize that 3 of the other dancers mentioned in the article were in my wedding party.  They are really gifted teachers, choreographers, and blessed to be their friend. And blessed to have a mentor like Ms. Iris Cloud who let me discover what God had put inside of me decades earlier but I had buried for such a long time. And thanks to my Boston friends who always believed in me...they weren't shocked by the article at all..I however, couldn't stop crying. Now I (we) need to stoke that fire of inspiration, gifting, and anointing and move forward. Look out's a new season and we are destined to fulfill our purpose to communicate the gospel through text, movement, and cultural development.

We Are Champions - The Team is only as Good as its Coach

I am blessed another year to serve at Primitive Christian Church.  My husband and I are able to minister on the outside and serve others because of the great training, encouragement, and faith-building we experience at PCC. We are able to explore a lot of things creatively that we later take outside the 4 walls when we travel as Seasons of Purpose. Many thanks to all of you who have prayed and supported us in so many ways.

This year's Superbowl service ended with the boys (tall to tallest) doing a flag piece. Just ignore I'm in it. I was only there for moral support...this is a male flag dance. YEAH! Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Marcos Rivera gives the closing remarks. We do it all for Coach Jesus. Glory to God!
