I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Greetings -

Millions are in love with stars and celebrities, and some even worship them.  I love an assortment of stars and celebrities but I am not IN love with any of them.  As do we all, they have feet of clay. For certain, none of us walk on water. 

We observe, hear and read often about Hollywood stars and celebrities.  The media regularly reports on the 
so-called A-listers, the red carpet premieres, the award shows - how many are there now?! - and the worship of the famous.  Some folks are desperate for autographs.  Years ago, I went to an event where there was an author present who was selling his book.  I was interested in the book and purchased a copy.  The author asked me if I wanted him to sign the book.  I politely said, "No."  He looked surprised.  Though I admire the skills and talents of others and have even written letters of commendation to those that I admire, I am not inclined for autographs.  What does it say when the autograph of another human is our desire?  Does it indicate that they possess some importance above other people?  To me, that seems to be the indication.  No thank you - autographs are not for me.  I am a writer, and believe that the Lord will allow books of mine to be published.  I do not desire autographs nor will I ever submit my autograph if, per chance, I am ever requested to do so.  Now - I will write "JESUS"  in any books that I may be asked to sign.  Note: In no way do I judge those who are inclined to autographs. 

Sadly, more frequently, reports surface about the alcohol and drug addiction problems experienced by those in celebrity communities.  Then there is the anguish of infidelity in so many celebrity lives.  Are these people truly stars?  I venture to say - not.  It is a certainty that a number of them do not feel like stars even though much of the public considers them as such.  Some of them, in their private moments, seek various forms of escape from their unfulfilled existences.  Are they famous? - yes.  What price, though, do they pay for their fame?   There is one famous celebrity that is often in the news.  She is famous also for her fashion savvy. Her fashions boldly "make a statement," but with rare exception, whenever I look into her eyes, I see "sad."

I love my share of famous people and the pleasure of their artistry at work.  It is good, through entertainment, to enjoy respite from the routine tasks in life. Clearly, there is appreciation for the varied contributions of famous people.

There is no reasonable argument as to whether celebrities help to enrich our lives.  The same is true for people who are not famous.  I offer this "story" from the other extreme of people:  Some years ago I experienced major anguish relative to the end of a relationship.  Some of the most enriching encouragement and compassion came to me from a neighbor (I'll call him Don) who was a
crack-addicted backslidden Christian.  Don was smoking rock, but the ROCK, Lord JESUS used him to deeply impact my fragile vulnerable state.  Don's compassion was of such comfort to me.  I will never forget how GOD used him to "minister" to my sorrowful soul.  

Some may say, "A crack addict?!"  Yes - a crack addict who backslid from JESUS.  I am convinced that the Spirit of the living GOD worked from the heart place of Don!  In truth, I was comforted by others, family members included, but no one had the impact as did Don.  Why? - I don't know except to express that GOD uses whoever and however He pleases.   Glory to His righteous name!

People of value are found in every corner of our vast planet.  No rocks though.  I'm in love with a ROCK STAR - JESUS the ROCK of salvation. He does walk on water.  His shed red blood trumps the red carpet any day of the week.  He is the triple
A-lister PLUS.  His listing has no end.  He IS the award show with rewards for His faithful.  Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy you have nothing that comes close to ROCK JESUS!   Award attendees you are invited to sup with the Savior.  Come as you are - friendship with Him assures that you will not stay as You are - He guarantees the best - for sure! 

True worshippers of GOD are addicted to love and the truth of the full gospel.  We are produced and directed by Christ - the ROCK STAR!  We have featured roles in His kingdom drama - no understudy action allowed - we all, daily, play ourselves in the roles of our lives.     

I'm in love with a ROCK STAR.

My prayer is that more HollyWOULD characters, and others get their places in the ROCK.

Scriptures from the King James Bible

Matthew 7:24
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.

Matthew 7:25
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not; for it was founded upon a rock.

Matthew 16:18
...and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

1 Corinthians 10:4
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.


  1. Hi Sandra,

    The unfolding drama of our life all begins with the intro:

    "...While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8, NIV)

    I'm thankful that my life story isn't halted because it is unfunded and over budget.

    Praise God for producing a masterpiece.

    Blessings and peace.


  2. Hi MTJ -

    Thank you for visiting and for your comment.

    The masterpiece that you speak of is?

  3. This post was well-spoken, my friend! I, too, am in love with a Rock Star!! He is the only One who is worthy of praise and adoration!

    Here's my list of rock "stars"- and how Jesus is different:

    "The Doors" - Jesus is the Door to Life.
    "The Rolling Stones" - The stone was rolled away from His grave - death could not contain Him.
    "The Who" - He is the great "I AM."
    "Pearl Jam" - Jesus is the Pearl of great price.
    "Electric Light Orchestra" - He is the Light who shines to a dark and lost world.
    "The Eagles" - He hides me in His shadow, and lets me mount up on wings like eagles.
    "Black Sabbath" - He is the Risen Lord, whose "Black Friday" led to a glorious Resurrection Sunday!
    "Grand Funk Railroad" - Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life - the Road to an eternity in the Presence of God.

    Just a few "puns" that contain the Truth - that Jesus is the ONLY Rock worth building my life upon!


    (p.s. I keep wondering what would happen if one of these Hollywood A-listers actually came to saving faith in Jesus? Wouldn't that be awesome? I'm not holding my breath - but I won't limit God!)

  4. Hi Sharon -

    I love your list - great...! You are right, "..Jesus is the ONLY Rock worth building..."

    Note: I believe that there are some A-listers who already have accepted Christ as Savior but I believe that more will come. You are right we cannot limit GOD for with Him all things are possible.

  5. Now there's a Rock Star to follow! Enjoyed this very much. Have said a prayer for Don, too. May he return to the Rock of Salvation, the firm foundation.

  6. I've got to say. I'm in Love with the same Rock Star you are. Jesus is the Rock... My Rock!

  7. Greetings -

    Thank you for ROCKING with the ROCK friends, and for loving Him joyously!

    It is a sad commentary on our society that we think that famous people are somehow better than others. This apparent need to know every detail about their lives, and the way that the tabloids exploit them by making up stories about celebrities, and now the way that celebrities are stalked by paparazzi - all of this is showing us how much people need to worship a god. That they choose famous people to worship instead of God is very sad indeed.
