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....

HAPPY Birthday

at the National Arboretum
in Washington, DC

Greetings -

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Tomorrow is my birthday.  Here is a bit of info about me:

- Birth weight - 9 lb. 12 oz.

- Sandra - derived from Alexander - means "defending men" - to defend, help/protector

- Middle name - Renee - derived from Renatus - means "born again," reborn

- Mother's name - Helen - means "torch"

- Great grandfather was a Cuban

- Blackfoot Indian in family "tree" 

Yesterday, our Lord gave me, from His Word, the theme word "HAPPY" as pertains to my birthday this year.

Here I share the "HAPPY" scriptures that He provided:

The Acts 26:2
I think myself happy,...

James 5:11
Behold, we count them happy which endure....

Psalm 144:15
Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord. 

Psalm 128:2
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

Psalm 146:5
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.

Proverbs 16:20
He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.

John 13:17
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

1 Peter 3:14
But and if ye suffer for righteousness sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror neither be troubled;

1 Peter 4:14
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 

Prayer for April 30th birthday folks:

Thank You, Lord, for your precious gift of another birthday.  My wish is that I become increasingly holy in accordance with 2 Corinthians 7:1, which states, "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."  

Most high GOD, please save us from sinful habits, and from being earth focused.  Please teach us how to set our affections on things above where Christ sits on Your right hand - Colossians 3:1,2.  Teach us how to love and to cheerfully share.  Help us to yield to You in all of our affairs so that we can successfully stand against the wiles of the devil - Ephesians 6.  We need to steadfastly use the shield of faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  Teach us, please, how to walk in the Spirit - Galatians 5:16 - so that we can please You, and enter Your kingdom to hear You say, "...Well done, thou good and faithful servant:...enter thou into the joy of thy lord." - Matthew 25:21  

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Note: For those who are inclined, please share your birthday month and day.  I would love to wish you a HAPPY Birthday!  Thank you.

  8. Happy Birthday Sandra!

    You were created unique and special.

    Psalm 139:13-18

    13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
    14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
    16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
    17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
    18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.

    I love Psalm 139 and I sure like to quote it for birthdays. I hope you have a very special day!

    Blessings dear sister,

  9. Well, Happy Birthday! Grace & Peace be upon you!
