The path to such early recognition was taken eagerly, like a runner catapulting from a starting block. Our interview, in exploring her lifea€™s path, revealed a person who, for all her dazzling gifts, is still down-to-earth, quick to say a€?thank youa€? to any accolades a€” and a delight to talk to. As far as influences go, she says a€?It was all over the map,a€? To a listener, ita€™s easy to see that jazz really got in, and got in deep. About her mom and dada€™s rearing skills, she continued: a€?The daring does come from a place of being supported as a child and as an artist. Her grandfather, who was a jazz pianist and a composer, had passed away when Sonya was very young, and had left her mother his grand piano. Wikipedia, in a somewhat dated post, states: a€?As a 10-year-old, she performed at the 1999 Special Olympics World Games in North Carolina. Sonya has said that she developed as a jazz singer through her studies with Sheila Jordan, a renowned vocalist and educator (Jordan initially became known as an interpreter of the music of Charlie a€?Birda€? Parker and later studied with Charles Mingus and Lenny Tristano). Although she had started studying guitar with June Millington (followed later by lessons with Michael Daves), she was, at this point, fronting the band strictly as a singer. Sonya continued to strictly sing out front with the band as back-up until she was forced to start playing guitar with the band.
Her fourth CD, released in 2010, Convict of Conviction, (more of an EP - 7 tracks) is another distinct departure and was, as she says, a€?a collection of music from winter, done with a string quartet.a€? We hear more piano here, as this is where Sonya decided to seriously make use of it.
Sonya got a camera from her father when she was 12 and has been an avid photographer ever since.
The foundation for Sonyaa€™s dream to be a singer was built brick by brick, one teacher after another. In the days prior to the American Revolution, Pennsylvania, which was not only a Quaker, but also a pacifist, colony restricted her residents from crossing over the Susquehanna River and taking up Indian lands. Marylanders had no such compulsion and were more inclined to travel up a river, than to worry about where a rather arbitrary political boundary might cross through the woods. William grew up predominantly in York Co., PA where he met and married Catherine Houts on 27 Oct 1778, on his 21st birthday.
Whether William participated in the Revolutionary War as a soldier, or not, is unknown, but it seems highly likely that he would have.
From subsequent US census records, John, at one point, stated that he was born in Pennsylvania, but in another census, he said he was born in Maryland. In the first US census taken in 1790, William Geery is found with his family in Baltimore Co., Maryland. This last stay in Maryland was of a short duration and they were probably gone in the early 1790a€™s. They must have lived fairly close to one of the original settlements in that state, as Williama€™s oldest son, John Geery, soon met a young girl, by the name of Elizabeth Guthrie, who was about his same age, and who was born there in Madison Co.
In the mean time, William Geery and the rest of his family remained, at least for the most part, in Madison Co., KY.
William remained for the rest of his life in Madison County, KY, passing away there on 14 Jan 1838 outliving his second wife by two years, as Hannah died there on 26 Oct 1835. William Geerya€™s older brother, John Geery, served in the Pennsylvania Militia during the War. By the turn of the century (early 1800a€™s) the threat from the Shawnee Indians had subsided quite a bit in Kentucky, although the Creeks were still giving the settlers in Tennessee a lot of trouble.
For several years they made their home next to his in-laws and seemed happy in this community.
Not too long after the death of little William, this family decided to pull up stakes and move to a new territory. They traveled down the Cumberland River to where it meets the Ohio, and then, just a short distance further, it merges with the Mississippi. After marking off his farm ground, John built a large log cabin next to a perpetual spring of water. In the mean time, after Johna€™s move to Missouri, his younger brother, James Geery, who had still been living with their folks back in Kentucky, packed up his family and in the early 1830a€™s moved to Missouri too.
Robert was born in Williamson County, TN on 1 Dec 1808, and was the second child in the family of John and Elizabeth Guthrie Geery. Life was tough on the frontier for a young man, but his father needed him to help clear the land of most of the trees, and to plow and plant the crops.
In the community near where they lived was another family, who had been their friends in Williamson Co., TN, and who had moved to Missouri with them.
Robert and Sally were married in Ralls County, on 29 Sep 1831 and began building up their own farm ground in Pike County, next to the farm and home of William W. Robert was not only a farmer, but also followed the trade of being the local tanner of hides. No out-right military conflict resulted, but more and more Mormons kept moving into the western counties of the state, north of Jackson County.
In time, the Mormons were expelled from Missouri, and in the cold of winter, 1839, many of them migrated back across northern tier of counties, on their way to Illinois. In 1860, following the election of Abraham Lincoln, from the neighboring state of Illinois, the Civil War broke out and Missouri was referred to as a a€?split statea€? meaning that it was both a a€?slavea€? state, as well as a a€?freea€? state, and the people could chose which way they wanted to be. Coming from Tennessee, the Geerys had southern inclinations, but not so much so that they wanted to kill anyone over it. At this time, Robert Geery was 52 years old when his wife, Sally Parks, became ill and passed away on 23 Oct.
Eventually Robert died on 11 Jan 1899 and in Reading, MO; and his second wife, Catherine passed away some time after 1883. RR Geery, as he usually styled himself, was named after both his maternal Grandfather, Reuben Parks, and after his father, Robert Geery. After an appropriate sweetheart courtship of these teenagers, Reuben and Lucy were married on 25 Feb 1864 in Pike Co., MO. Following the end of the Civil War, there was another huge explosion of the population moving west to occupy almost every piece of land that could be acquired. With the discovery of rich veins of gold, then silver, and then copper in a little known place that soon became the boom town of Butte, Montana, thousands of people from all over the world flocked to the newest strike zone to make themselves wealthy over-night.
Reuben and Fanny had a young family at this time, but they were coming to the conclusion that their Missouri farm was not going to provide them with the life they wanted to live. At least with the railroad, their trip west was much less of a hardship than it had been for earlier travelers. Additionally some of Reubena€™s brothers and sisters came to Montana with him, or shortly thereafter. Reubena€™s mining efforts didna€™t pay off too well, and his farm, although pretty, didna€™t provide all that much either, but his freighting job supplied his family with their basic needs. After his death, Fanny went to live primarily with her married daughter, Mildred Geery Travers, who had married Reuben Travers on 6 Jan 1892.
The second daughter, and third child of Reuben and Fanny Geery was Cora Bell, born 30 Mar 1869 in Pike County, MO. Cora grew up in a loving home where she was very close to her parents and siblings, but most especially to her only sister, Mildred. Sometime between 1881-84 a small group of people arrived from Vankleek Hill, Ontario, Canada. It wasna€™t long before big, tall Jim Fitzpatrick noticed the pretty Cora Bell Geery, and he began to court her. For her 17th birthday in 1886, Fanny Waddle Geery gave her daughter Cora an autograph book. The thoughts of a loving and kindly father, who could see the hand writing on the wall and knew he would soon be giving his daughter away to another man. Jim Fitzpatricka€™s and Cora Bell Geerya€™s wedding was recorded in the new county courthouse located in Butte. The last two were twins, which were named after their mother, and her dear sister, who she sadly left behind near Butte. Cora Geery Fitzpatrick, and her family were very happy in their Montana home, even though she was separated from the rest of her Geery siblings. Soon the family doctor diagnosed her with colon cancer, and there was not much that could be done to help her. Left column is for John (himself), his first wife, Elizabeth Guthrie, and his mother Catherine Houts. Right column has: His Mother, Catherine Houts Geery (entered twice) followed by his Fathera€™s second wife, Hannah, and ending with his father, William Geery. Whether William participated in the Revolutionary War as a soldier, or not, is unknown, but it seems highly likely that he would have.A  His older brother, John, was a soldier, and with the opposing British Army stationed in Philadelphia, a patriotic feeling filled the hearts of most able bodied Pennsylvanians, perhaps more so than from any other colony, outside of Massachusetts.
Reubena€™s mining efforts didna€™t pay off too well, and his farm, although pretty, didna€™t provide all that much either, but his freighting job supplied his family with their basic needs.A  With that being the case, he moved their residence from their Browns Gulch farm to the town of Rocker, about four miles west of Butte, where it was more convenient for him to spend time with his family.
It dips, swoops and flips up into a falsetto at times, not commonly used by women singers a€” like a female version of Al Green. The first album, Words Came Back to Me, released when she was just 16, put her on the aural map, not just locally, but worldwide.
Her parents, both full-time professional artists, had a big impact on their toddler daughter.
Although the family lived in a rural area, it was part of the a€?Happy Valleya€? and home of a€?Five Colleges,a€? including Smith and Amherst.
For four years she has taken part in the Vermont Jazz Center Summer Program with Sheila Jordan, and she has won an a€?outstanding musiciana€? award from the University of Massachusetts High School Jazz Festival and a scholarship to its Jazz in July summer program.
She had always kept a journal, but the events of that day would become more than just a journal entry. By the time she started performing, she had written about three original songs, and filled out her sets with covers of jazz standards. Quoted elsewhere, she said: a€?One of the main things I remember doing when I was young, was driving ridiculous distances, just to sing one song at a jam session here, or a show there. Speaking about her development in general, she said: a€?Everythinga€™s happened almost, because I had to [learn new skills]. A sponsorship deal with Starbucksa€™A® Hear Music label brought the CD into coffee shops around the world.
In an interview with Howard Berkes of NPR, we hear: a€?Once I started writing I couldna€™t stop. One day when you are older and your children have started their own families and have moved to another city or state, or when your friends become elderly and pass away, your wife is the one who will still be right at your side. 1816 a tragedy struck the family when their oldest little boy, ten year old William, suddenly died. 1822 just a copule years after their arrival, much like Roberta€™s mother; and she was raised by her widowed mother, who died about a month after Sally was married.
Waddle (sometimes spelled a€?Waddella€? especially in the earlier generations), as well as his son, George R.
Lost in a reverie, she questions an inner voice that says a€?walk away a€¦ walk away a€¦ walk away.a€? The lover she is contemplating comes with a lot of baggage and the mic shea€™s singing into lets us hear every breathy syllable.
Her newest album, Convict of Conviction, reveals an artist eager to break new ground every time she puts pen to paper or sets her instrument(s) in motion. Ita€™s a wonder that we havena€™t heard stories about her first cries carrying a melody as she emerged from her mothera€™s womb. Their studios were a€?a stonea€™s throwa€? behind the house they lived in and both played recorded music while they worked.
The area is also rich in music and home to many bands, such as Fountains of Wayne, The Nields and Winterpills. That didna€™t happen, she has said, but the lessons have obviously been a huge success in every other regard. She said: a€?I think it was the first time I really understood the worlda€™s suffering and felt really bad about it.
In 2003, an article by Seth Rogovoy, of Berkshire Living Magazine, described 13-year-old Sonya this way: a€?poised and well-spoken a€¦ shea€™s not at all haughty and doesna€™t come across as particularly precocious.
It was made with Grammy-winning producer Malcolm Burn (Daniel Lanois, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris) after her tour with Hancock ended. Geery, that to the best of their knowledge and belief, the names of the heirs of John Geery deceased, and their places of residence are as follows: Robert Geery and Catharine Shotwell formerly Catherine Geery of Pike County and John G.

48: a€?Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me.
Teachers were within reach and, with her mothera€™s help, she eagerly studied with quite a few. Her other vocal coach during this period, Rebecca Parris, is a jazz singer similar to and on a level with Carmen McRae and Sara Vaughan and is known as the First Lady of Boston Jazz.
I felt the need to do something a€” I had the desire to fix it, even though you cana€™t fix the worlda€™s suffering. She just happens to be the youngest performer to have sold out the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton two times in a row. If I dona€™t write a song for a couple of weeks, I feel something pent-up inside of me that needs to come out. The rock band The Slip joined her for the recording sessions and then later accompanied her on tour. Often when it finally comes out, ita€™s not about me, but ita€™s a song and I feel lighter. Sonya saw the gospel choir and thought a€?It was the coolest thing ever,a€? so she asked her mother if she could take voice lessons with Evelyn. I eventually started writing more, then suddenly [the set] was mostly originals and then it was all originals.
Sometimes, her father, Peter Kitchell, a highly regarded abstract painter, would hold infant Sonya in a Snugli against his chest and play bongos along with Latin music.
Ita€™s really important to me that my songs mean something to people and Ia€™m trying to write songs that are universal. I had basic skills, understanding music, but I never considered myself a piano player.a€? That would change many years later. As two or three years went by, I started to live all of those songs and understand them more deeply.
Louis Missouri children and heirs of Mary Copelin formerly Mary Geery, and Jane Geery widow of the deceased.
Sonya got a band together with older students she knew and thus, Sonyaa€™s performing career was launched.
Most of the people there have maybe never played with a band before and I never played solo before. This word means to assign, to designate, to allocate, orA to intentionally give something to someone.
It refers to a calculated decision to show attention, awareness,or consideration to someone else.
I had this wonderful sermon today on resurrection but I am changing it due to something in this morninga€™s paper. In this case, it refers to a man purposefully showing attention to and consideration for his wife. Because Peter uses the Greek wordA aponemo (a€?givinga€?), this strongly suggests that the husbanda€™s attention, awareness, and consideration dona€™t occur accidentally. Our daughter who is also in the Army was in special training for 3 A? months and Oma and I took care of Alan at our home. He tells husbands that they are to give honor unto the wife as unto the a€?weaker vessel.a€?A The word a€?weakera€? does not mean inferior or substandard. At the local daycare, Alan met his friend Noah and they played together for the duration of this time. This is the Greek word asthenes, which actually carries the idea ofA something that is fragile and of great value, like a priceless, beautiful, hand-painted porcelain vase that must be treated with supreme care. She is to be given a place of high honor in his life, as if she were a fragile and priceless vessel.

When you and your wife approach a door, open the door for her and let her goA through the door first.
If you step through the door first and then let the door slamA in your wifea€™s face as she follows behind you, you give her the impression that sheA is of little value to you. I am asking all of my readers, please pray to our Lord for his healing, that his parents get the much needed monies, and that everyonea€™s faith shall increase as they see the Glory of God do a miracle.
When your wife walks up or down the stairs or when she gets in or out of the car,A show enough consideration for her to reach out and take her by the hand and helpA her. Instead of spending all the extra money on yourself, on your fishing trip, or on yourA personal pleasures, why not sacrifice a few of your own desires and give her thatA extra money to go do something for herself?
When you give her a check or cashA and tell her to go buy something for herself, it will probably shock her! Help me boldly claim my full capacity for your use.a€? ------------- Donna Givlera€”quoting Katie Brazelton of Saddleback Church in her devotional book titled a€?Praying for Purpose, for Womena€?.
But as sheA realizes that you are making a sacrifice of your own desires to bless her, it will sendA a gigantic signal that you love her and want to bless her.A 4.
SheA works hard to be beautiful for you, and it is only right that you acknowledge itA when she looks pretty. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never die.a€?1 Corinthians Chapter 15, vs. 42: Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. If you have sons, you are also providingA a good example to them of the way they should honor their own future wives.A 6. 27: For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your Holy one to rot in the grave. When you give her time that is completelyA undistracted, it lets her know that you want to be with her. 2: The leaders were very disturbed that Peter and John were teaching the people that through Jesus there was a resurrection of the dead. When you are at work, remember to pick up the telephone to call her during the day,A just to let her know you are thinking about her. It doesna€™t take long for you to makeA a quick phone call, but that moment of consideration means a lot to your wifebecause it communicates to her how much you value her. 11: I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or the other I will experience the resurrection from the dead.
It proved that he was God and that He had power even over His own death and Satana€™s dominion. If you always have time to be with everyone else butA never have time with her, you are sending her the message that she is the lowest priorityA in your life. So take a few minutesA every so often to write a little note or card and leave it for your wife to find. HowA much time and effort does it take for you to pick up an ink pen and a piece of paperA and write two or three sentences of appreciation to your wife?
Ita€™s a small investmentA of time and creativity that speaks volumes to your wife about your love for her.A 10. God can resurrect our lives, our dreams, and our visions if we ask him to or if it is His will for us.
Always remember special dates, such as your wifea€™s birthday or your weddingA anniversary.
Men tend to forget these things, but these are special memories to aA wife and it means so much to her when these times are celebrated with her husband.A Also, dona€™t forget to buy her a gift for these occasions. If we have a dream or vision and we lose sight of it we can gain our sight back if we ask Him in prayer. If you do any of theseA eleven things, you are sending a wrong signal to your wife, for none of theseA actions will make her feel cherished and treasured by you. She continued her life style and left her son with babysitters while she partied and enjoyed life (she thought). One day, depressed of how her life was going, she drove past our church and stopped in on a whim. Even if she smiles and laughs, trying to shrug off your verbal jabs,A this kind of behavior on your part is deeply hurtful to your wife. If there is a conflict between you, wait until you get homeA where you can talk about it privately, but never make fun of her or put her downA in front of others.
We sponsored her that Christmas and had much joy running around buying her son Jared presents. And I must ask you again, do you want her to point outA all your flaws in front of other people? Over the next two years we connected a couple more times and gave her encouragement when we seen her. You would prefer that she speak to you privatelyA about such matters, so show her the same courtesy.A A 3. Last year we gave her a gift card for a restaurant so that she and Jared could have a nice meal out together. Never tell your wife there isna€™t enough money in the budget for her to buy a new outfitA a€” and then turn right around and spend a lot of money on yourself, your fishingA trip, your hobbies, grills, tv's etc. When she sees you do this, it communicates to her that youA love yourself more than you love her. She now has a good full time job with benefits, her son is doing fantastic in school, and she is looking exceptionally healthy and emotionally stable now. When you consistently make time for everyone in your life except yourA wife, you are making a very big mistake. If needed, cancel something in your scheduleA so you can give attention to this most important relationship in your life.A A 5. For she took the courage in her slow death of life and laid all her hope at the foot of the cross. Too often men act as if they are racing when they walk,A usually leaving their wives to walk five to fifteen feet behind them.
Now, I understandA that you may think your wife walks too slowly, but what is the use of racing in frontA of her if you must then stop, turn around, and wait for her to catch up with you? ItA takes the same amount of time to get to your destination, whether you walk alongsideA your wife or you walk ahead and then wait for her. My wife and I thank God that he let us participate, even if it was very little, in her re-birth. She wants to be the one and onlyA woman in your life, so comparing her to other women is not wise and shows greatA disrespect. Shortly after the dream, we were visiting YWAM in Lebanon and they were showing us their prayer tent that they use in Lancaster and Cape Cod. This was with the hope that someone would step up to the plate and donate a space to erect it. Your sexual relationship is a time ofA intimacy that is to be shared only between the two of you. Therefore, when youA make jokes about it or talk about it in front of others, you are humiliating your wifeA and making her feel cheap.
This is certainly not a way to cherish her or to treat herA like a treasure!A 8.Never lie to your wife or tell a half-truth to cover your tracks. If you violate her trust by lying to her and she discovers it,A your act of deception will affect her ability to trust you in the future.
It may be difficult for her to hear what you have to say, but at least she will know you are being honest with her. If she discovers you have been lying to her, this will result in a far greater hurt than if you honestly admit to her what you have done wrong.A 9. However, recently the pastors of the Gathering Place (a project to help people with Aids) asked us to help bring CAP some clothes this winter. Men who consistently forget these twoimportant dates and yet expect their marriage relationship to stay healthy are either ignorant or stupid. As noted earlier, the word a€?givea€? describesA a calculated decision to show attention, awareness, or consideration to someone else.
This pictures a purposeful and premeditated action by a husband to intentionally showattention and demonstrate consideration for his wife.A If these kinds of thoughtful acts dona€™t come naturally to you, ita€™s time for you to learn how to doA them.


Just open your mouth and ask.a€?A a€?Even though your promise may be postdated, remember whose signature is on the checka€? Pastor Pop-Pop 11-8--09. The truth is that you showA kindness and consideration to other people, so youA can do the same for your wife as well. What started out as something to just help pastor my children, has turned into something that may be helping lots of people. After you talk to the Lord,A it is also important that you humble yourself and ask your wife to forgive you as well.
According to Yahoo my host, I have an average of 50 hits a week on the Pastor Pop Pop site. Let the Holy Spirit teach you, correct you, and show you how to becomeA more sensitive to the woman you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with.
I accept responsibilityA for the role I have played in wounding her and making her feel unimportant. As I follow Your leading in this area, please heal my wifea€™s heart andA bring tenderness back into our relationship once more.
I accept Your challenge to purposefullyA show the honor, attention, respect, and tenderness she deserves.
This weekend at a prayer tent at a local flea market, I seen a leg grow that was shorter than the other one. My wife feels loved, respected, esteemed, andA special because I do the things that communicate value to her. Every week from now on there will be two tabs to the right of the Home Page that will be new. When is the last time you did something really extra special for your wife toA show her how much you love and care for her?A 2. Have you been guilty of jesting about your wife in front of others or of puttingA her down in front of the children? We will address both today and you may click on the Tab in future weeks to experience the Altar Call again. A Christian artist once said that when she was in another country and away from her Church, she would sit and pray alone and have communion by herself to remind her of her faith.
That inspired my wife and me to do it occasionally by ourselves and with some of our Amish friends.
It can be about your body, mind, soul, family, friends, healing needed, finances, challenges, or anything that you wish. Turn away from your former self, study in the Word (the Bible) and find yourself a good Christian Church that will support you and help you grow in your faith. The Son being Jesus Christ who died on the cross at Calvary and shed his blood for our sins. I believe that since I now accept Him as my Lord and Savior that I have been washed clean of my sins and guilt by his blood.
Jesus, I love you.a€? A If you prayed this simple prayer, you are saved and re-born in Him.
We are going to drown!a€? He replied, a€?You of little faith, why are you afraid?a€? Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The eyes of the Lord are upon those who love him; he is their mighty shield and strong support, a shelter from the heat, a shade from the noonday sun, a guard against stumbling, a help against falling.
Although I own and study from many various different Bible translations, I personally normally use the NAB version.
Occasionally I like to read some of the a€?missing books of the Biblea€? sometimes called the Apocrypha. They include the books of the books of Baruch, Judith, both Maccabees, Sirach, Tobit and the book of Wisdom.
If youa€™re Amish (I do have some Amish readers), you may find these books in an earlier version of the King James printing.
Any way, I was reading the book of Sirach and through some of the verses it was put on my heart that I treated this person somewhat wrongly and it could have been done through ambition or pride of mine. I immediately broke down and confessed this sin to Jesus and asked for Goda€™s forgiveness.
However, I will declare that the Lord has closed a door but he will surely open a new and better one. I choose to believe this truth and not the news media and evil spirits who would much rather us to believe that this bad economy, unemployment, and world affairs will defeat us. He was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. The Scriptures say, a€?People do not live by bread alone.a€™a€? Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
12: For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. It is good for us to know the Scriptures and write some down to pray and declare a€?in Jesusa€™ namea€™ when we are being attacked.
When you are in the battles of life, say a verse or two out loud and declare it over your life in Jesusa€™ name. Tell Satan to, a€?Get out of my life, body, mind, and soul and leave me alone in Jesusa€™ namea€? And use the arrows against him. Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping.
He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me.
I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. My enemies retreated; they staggered and died when you appeared.Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Dona€™t let my enemies gloat, saying, a€?We have defeated him!a€? Dona€™t let them rejoice at my downfall.Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.
Protect my life from my enemiesa€™ threats.But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down.
Pray and think on this thing called freedom, which we take for granted but is being eroded away. 37-40: Then He said to him (a Pharisee), a€?Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
21: The one who pursues righteousness and faithful love will find life righteousness, and faithful love.
Many relatives were coming to our home to partake in the golden turkey and all the other foods and treats my wife prepared.
So I will not be spending Thanksgiving having dinner around a table with my family like you are going to. If people like you would not patronize this store on holidays and make sure that you have all your stuff the day before, it would be unlikely that they would stay open.
It also made me think about all the other stores that are open on these days and the countless others that have to work those days and cannot have an enjoyable time like some of the rest of us. And dona€™t forget to thank them for being there if you just cannot bear not to go to the store for that a€?emergencya€? item. 37-38: On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, a€?Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! For the Scriptures declare, a€?Rivers of living water will flow from his hearta€™.a€?Matthew Chapter 11, vs.
On one day before his memorial service when we were all there at his home, his daughter went out in the backyard by her self. She was walking around in the back yard and my other brother and I decided to go out and comfort her. She said that she looked up in the sky (it was blue and full of clouds that day) and, a€?I saw a very large white hand that seemed to reach down to mea€?. She stated that she felt it was her daddya€™s hand and because of this she felt better knowing that he was still watching over her. We may go through many troubles and trials in our lives but God will always be with us and never forsake us.
12-13: If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go and search of the stray?
And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation.
When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need. So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine.
