Thank you to everyone who has been praying for Shelby Mundock, the ten year old little girl from my church that had a severe asthma attack and was without oxygen. She went to be with Jesus on Friday evening. Please pray for strength, peace, and comfort for her family.
This song and video makes me think of you. Dance in heaven, sweetie.

Last week, I wrote a song for Shelby's family In Your Hands. I'm no song-writer, but I had to get my feelings out.

My response to the Writing Prompt:
Boy Finds "Moses" Treasure
Article: A small boy in the Middle East is credited with finding an
unbelievable treasure -- Manna from Heaven. On April 1, 2012, Samuel Saleem, age 10, was
exploring his grandfather's attic, when he came across an old trunk containing
an old jar and a note in Hebrew. The note gave instructions that the contents
were to be passed down to future generations to show the awesome power of God. The contents of the jar appeared to be flat white seeds. Grandfather and
son took the jar to the Ministry of Agriculture who referred them to the Museum
of Natural History in Washington, DC, who promptly requested a sample be sent to them.
After analysis, historians and botanists from all over the world have flocked
to Saleem's home because there
is no known record of this type of seed. Could this truly be manna from
Reverend Michael Bloutant says it can.
"The Bible is quite clear that the children of Israel were to pass down
manna to future generations to show what God did for them in the wilderness;
feeding the people with manna that appeared every morning with the dew. Manna was
described as being white, like a seed, and tasting like a honeyed wafer.
Furthermore, God dictated when the manna would be preserved and when it would
rot. If God dictated that some manna be kept for future generations, then this
very well could be the actual manna from Moses' time, during the Exodus from
On-going analysis of the seeds are
still being done.
What I can learn from him -- His willingness to share the truth with people. His willingness to give it all. His love for others.
A quote from the Bible -- "Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling!" Psalm 43:3
How can I apply what I learned from Jesus to my life? -- I can think before I write. Even in my fiction, I can share "truth" via my theme. I can also choose to write more devotions. I can pray more about what I write, asking Jesus to bless my work and inspire me with ideas.
