Workin on a building 

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres, that I may build it.”

‭‭Nehemiah‬ ‭2:5‬ ‭KJV‬‬
If You are a student of the Bible you will be familiar with that text. As Nehemiah stood in his daily activity before the king he was of a sad countenance.

When asked why he confessed that it was from a broken heart . His Homeland lay desolate and the walls of the city he once called home were in Shambles… It brought tears

To his eyes. 
An amazing event where the King

Commissioned him to take a crew and rebuild the city of Jerusalem as well as the walls about it.
The text speaks of undying love for his homeland.

That’s as close to Patriotic as I need to get to stir my soul.!

That seems to be a bygone trait today Politically incorrect! You might have heard.

But ol Nehemiah still had feelings for his memorable abode and longed to see it in its glory again.
I worked hard this week on a Honeydo list we have had some fun with this week.

It has me all tuckered out.

But like Nehemiah I’m thankful for what the Lord has blessed me with.

It’s precious to me and my little wife Glenda.

It’s not a castle, but it will do till we get Home!

Our home is yonder on the Hills of glory!

As I sit here letting my achey bones and joints recover from that attempted murder ( heehee) I gaze upon it all and wonder how ol Nehemiah felt as he climbed upon those walls to rebuild and restore his homeland. 

He had his opposition… You know the Devil doesn’t want you to build anything. He wants to tear it all down.
And as I look at my old hammer and the tape measure and the paintbrushes and all…
I fought weary and tired say…
Thank You Lord For Your blessings on Me!

There’s a roof up above me….and it’s called home…

At least till I get Home!
With thankful heart I bid you all a 
Good night.

Honey – do lists

Good evening.
In the middle of my Honey-Do list. I hurt in places I didn’t know existed!

But the list is still about the same.

Can anybody tell me how that can be?

I knew it was going to be a tough week as the work my high school sweetheart and now love of my life had in store was indeed a challenge ( after all I’ve got 2 left feet and I’m all thumbs on both hands,heehee). 

But my effort has been galant!! I ve been up for the count but not sure where I’m at In this menagerie of activity.

I’ve made 4 trips to Home Depot already this week and the Paint guy there now knows me by name rank and serial #! 
He jokingly made a nice comment to me … He said I was a brave soul to put forth so much effort with the limited ability I possessed! 

Lol! How do they know????

We both had a big laugh over it all and I wanted to stay a while longer so I wouldn’t have to go back to the old grind but, he said ” You better get back to the old Grind if you expect to finish this year!” ( Smartalecs!lol)
Somehow I ll get through it all. Praying hard! 

The Bible says:
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬
That’s calming assurance for me. Someone out there just might read this and feel overwhelmed too. 

This will give us both some courage to keep pressing on.

The Lord knows our limitations( though sometimes we don’t).

Take courage my dear fellowlaboror.

As 1Cor15:58 says:

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:58‬ ‭KJV‬‬
I’m going to take this to that Home Depot guy !! Heehee.
Good night.

The Rock of Ages

Good morning.
The Bible says:
“Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭150:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬
The Winds may come and the storms may howl!

But There’s a ROCK we can stand on!

Our knees may shake in under us but the ROCK we stand on never will!

We have assurance!!! The Lord said ” I Will!”,so we have Promises that are steadfast and sure!

No matter what the situation, My GOD CAN!!!

This message comes to you courtesy of The ROCK OF ALL AGES!!

The ROCK I stand steadfast and securely upon!
Take that Devil!!!! 
Have a Heavenly Day!

The Rose of Sharon

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.”

‭‭Song of Solomon‬ ‭2:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Read this last night.

About had me a running fit!!!

What beauty there is within the pages of Gods Holy Word.
You must see the Rocky,dry and parched area of Sharon… In order For you to see the real beauty of Their rose!
How beautiful that is.
It’s when we are overwhelmed,at the

End of our rope, when our hope seems almost gone and the troubles of life leave us in tears….

When sorrow takes us by storm.

Oh how I’ve been there my friend! How I’ve been there!

But just as that precious verse said… It was there that I found Him to be truly “The Lilly of My Valley”!

Oh Hallelujah!!! To My Lord and Savior!!!

Get me a ladder to come down off this cloud!!!!PTL!!
Good night.

Dining with th Master

Good Morning.
Jesus sat down to dine with his disciples.
The Bible says:

“And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭24:27‬ ‭KJV‬‬
He sat down to break bread with them. 

They still could not believe it was him!
And just as those poor disciples. There’s folks today that will have a difficult time believing the Death the burial and the resurrection of the Darling Son of God!
So don’t be surprised when they give you that look.

When they fire all those ???’s at you.

You see when you’ve been saved, born again , when “Your Faith has made you whole”, understanding improves. But we still are captivated by the things of GOD!

So be patient and cut the unbelieving a break…. They only have you and me to teach them!

But somehow, PTL… The Lord will get the message through!

So keep on telling the Good News children.

Someone’s soul depends on it!
Have a Heavenly Day.

Great News

Good Morning.
It’s another fine morning thanks to the Lord above.

Lots in store for the coming week.

Are you ready for it?

My grandees Jordan Anais and Bryson are putting the finishing touches on a school play of “The Wizard of Oz” in which Anais, as she likes to be called now, plays the role of Dorothy.

Sounds exciting. The play opens to the public and old Pawpaw & Mawmaw will get to see the finished product this Friday evening.

Saturday is Glenda’s Birthday!! Uh oh! I’ve got some shopping to do!

And:

Time change is up Sunday.

You roll back the old clock an

Hour and retrieve that hours sleep we lost back in March. ( been waiting for this).

The Singing Echoes Park home of the Beautiful Blue Springs Valley Annual Singing needs a last haircut as the season comes to A close.

Wow ! If I add the “Honey Do ” list Glenda has for me it looks like this is going to be one busy week for ol Pawpaw.
Hope your week goes well.

The Bible Has some great news for us this morning:
“Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭37:3-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Commit thy way …unto the Lord…. That’s the answer to your problems my precious friend.

Today and any other day! Trust also in Him!

What would it be like if the Christlike Born agains would all do that? 

I’m putting myself right at the front of that challenge.

I see that has great benefits in store 

Within that promise.

And he states it with an iron clad promise “he shall bring it to pass”!! 

Wow!! Let’s go children the victory awaits us!!
Have a Heavenly Day.

Thank You

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;”

‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬
If you’ve been reading our posts over the past few years you know we have traveled many a mile singing, preaching and ministering around the country for The Lord.

There have been good times and bad times. 

And we’ve tried to express to you our thankful heart for your prayerful & Faithful support.

We want to thank you for sticking with us.

We may not have mentioned it enough but your prayers, attendance, and encouragement has meant so much to this ragtag gang that we just can’t tell you how important 

you have been , how vital a role you all play in the work we do for our blessed Savior.
The Singing Echoes just left Calvary Baptist In Bonifay, FL

Blessed because his church truly loved him and showed it in a wonderful day at Calvary.

Tributes were made to this cross between a Dr Lee Robinson and a Lester Summerall!

We sang a couple to a brand new audience then He

Took the Word Of God and used the thought ” As For Me”!! 

It’s got to Be settled in you’re mind about your dedication to the Service of The Lord!

From there on the Devil went into shock ! The Spirit was so real the crowd came unglued!!

They broke for chicken and then we came back for an afternoon Celebration!!

What love this church showed their pastor ! 

How good that felt.

It just reminded us of you folks. 

How Faithful you have been to the SE’s.
And we praise God for you!!! 
Now as the Silver Eagle heads for home we take a Moment to remember how much you mean to the cause off Christ. 

We thank God for you all!!

We want to make a good one, so we can reach somebody for Jesus.

Many of these folks we have never met, we want to be a blessing to all today so help us pray for Gods help!
With Waldo and Bartows meetings already in our hearts we carry a river of joy with us to the house this morning and we hope for some to pour on the dry and thirsty souls we meet this morning.

We pray wherever you choose to worship today that it will be Gloryfilled and it will thrill your soul!

The Bible says:
“Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.”

Have a Heavenly Day.

It was a thriller at Dixieland Park Last night in Waldo, FL!!

Some great singing by all made this a night folks will want to remember for ages as the place went into jubilee mode right off the bat!

Debbie Domer ,Wilma Smith 

Opened the night up and got the whole capacity crowd started in what turned out to be … You guessed it… Another Barnburner!! BigTime!!

The crowd was Gospel music fans indeed as they like to have sung the Singing Echoes to death!

On their feet singing along, clapping, tapping feet, and a shoutin time kicked it into high gear for Our Great friends that followed – Karen Peck & New River followed by an exciting group we have seen a few times before and are they ever growing!!! The Browders!! Yahoo!!! It was thrilling for sure!

Even the promoter – Bill Bailey got into the event as he cut loose and went to preachin and the house came down!!!

Glory to God in The Highest!!!

The ol Devil is gonna be askin for Obamacare if this keeps up!!! Heehee!
What a glorious night it was at Waldo!!

It was well after 2am before we got bedded down and got some needed rest. 

What a day what a glorious day!

This morning we give God praise and Glory for what he has done!

Have you praised Him , Lately ?? 

Does the Lord ever get a thank you from you, for all that he’s done for you?

Keeping you safe, 

Feeding you , sending you clothes to wear, giving you the air that you breathe.

Watching over you, keeping you when you were sick! M

Man the Lord sure deserves some applause from all of us. In fact a standing O would be suitable for the one who holds your life in his mighty hands. 

Again, The SE’s are headed for Bartow, to sing tonight at 7pm. 

??? Where are you headed?

The Bible says:

“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:25‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Mile after weary mile down life’s pathway. 

Are you ready ??? We’re nearing the end of the way! 

We’ll step off on that beautiful shore and stay while the ages shall roll!!

Come join us.. 
Have a Heavenly Day.

Ask God

Good evening.
The Bible gives assurance in uncertain times:
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Here’s blessed assurance!! 

There’s not a single soul that’s read this verse that hasn’t found it invaluable to their trial or test and found thru it, Faith and courage to continue on in even the worst of life’s experiences!
Where do they get such strength and determination to get up and keep the faith moving forward in the face of their adversity?
Don’t ask me, Dont ask some Philosopher,  

Ask God…. It’s His promise!
Good night.
