Spanish Ministries!

So one day I happen to go into our Sunday morning Spanish service because the preacher that was preaching in the English service was extremely long winded. That sadly is the honest truth. (okay so I'm a heathen! lol) What I didn't expect was for me to actually like it and to want to come back the next Sunday but I did. For the last couple of weeks I have continued to go to the Spanish services and I have been so blessed. God had started to give me such a burden for Spanish ministries. I was never really a fan of Spanish music either but one of the Brothers in our church gave me this CD of Marcela Gandara and Jesus Adrian Romero and I am hooked! I found myself almost crying in my car the first time I heard it because God was ministering to me through that music. So next Sunday I am going to sing in the Spanish service! I'm really excited about what God is going to do! Ohh and our Spanish choir just got asked to sing at the Spanish General Conference in Denver, Colorado in June! I have never been to Colorado or to a Spanish conference like this so I am totally psyched!! God is soo Good!

Thankful for God's Protection

So tonight on my way home from shopping at Kohl's I had a tire blow out. I was on the I-10 and if you don't live in Tucson you probably don't know that there is a stretch of freeway that is under construction where you are not able to get off. There are about 6 exits that are closed and sadly I was in the middle of them. I was in the right lane when I heard something pop. I didn't pay much attention to it until I felt the right back tire dragging. I knew it had blown but there was nothing I could do but keep driving. After almost 11 years of having my car I don't think I have ever had to use the emergency lights so I had no clue where they were. I slowed down a bit as cars and semi's drove pasted me. I finally got off the 1-19 exit and pulled over. After calling my mom I realized that no one would be able to get to me unless they went all the way around the freeway. The closet exit was Ajo Way and since I had already driven my car with my tire practically gone I figured I could keep going. I pulled into the nearest gas station remembering that my cousin Yvonne lived in the area. My mom was coming to pick me up because my brother and dad were at play practice at the church across town. I was alone and it was already dark. It wasn't the nicest place in town to be so I called my cousin to see if I could leave my car at her house. She said it was fine so I tried to make my way back on to the road. The only thing was I got lost trying to find the house. I had been there times before but I was in such a panic I had to call her again to ask for directions. My mom beat me to her house and said she could hear the loud clunking noise from down the street. After getting off the car I went around and was shocked to see I had been driving on my rim. After getting in my mom's car and feeling safe again I knew that it was by the Grace of God that nothing happened to me. I was on the freeway with no way out. I could have lost controlled and killed myself or someone else. I got home safe and even though its going to hurt my wallet to get it fixed, everything will be fine!

Remembering David

Sunday March 10th, 1996 was the day that my 19 year old cousin was suddenly taken from the world. I was 15 years old and up until that point no one close to me had ever died. His death involved a gunshot and a drug deal gone bad. The entire ordeal took place blocks from my house and after that our lives were never the same. I loved him just like any girl would love her older cousin and although it has been 13 years since that day, I still can't help but wonder what his life could have been. Our lives are only but a vapor!

I Thank You Lord

You are the reason why I wake up every morning.
You are the reason that I can carry on.
Because without your love and mercy
There is no hope in this life for me.
That's why I'm thankful
Thankful that you died for me

You are the reason why I can walk calmly through the valley.
The reason that I can sleep at night
For without your hand holding mine
I would have no peace of mind
Thats why I'm thankful.
Thankful that you love me.

I thank you Lord
I thank you Lord.
There arent enough words to say
How great you are
Or how much I appreciate
That you would go so far
To die on Calvary
Just for me
Just for me
I thank you Lord
