Sisters…

February 23, 2015 — Leave a comment

I love all kinds of music…don’t you?  It gives me joy, hope, strength and convicts me.  God speaks to me through song.

My love of music grew through my mother and her sisters.  Mom is the oldest of 5 girls.  Aunt Irene; plays the piano and sings tenor, Aunt Kathey sings Alto…she a mover and shaker, Aunt Barbara sings a powerful Alto,  Aunt Fran sings…..whatever she feels like at the moment and my mom, the lone soprano.

I remember those Saturday afternoon when we would all pack in my Nanny and Grandaddy’s 10×12 living room to sing.

Every Aunt, Uncle, cousin, sibling, spouse and neighbor would be there once they heard the “Floyd Sister’s” were singing.

As my mom and her sisters begin to sing and lift praises to the Lord; she would motion for me to stand beside her.  Little did they know that those wonderful afternoons they were being used of God to prepare me for this season of my life; with Love Heart Ministries.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” (Galatians 6:9, NIV)

These ladies are up in years but they are still serving.  Next month they are having a sister’s weekend and are scheduled to sing at local nursing homes.

I can’t imagine a time when these ladies won’t be willing to sing for the Lord.  We are called to be examples and to serve. God’s word doesn’t mention an age limit.

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.  We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God” (2 Corinthians 5:20, NIV)

We are commanded to Tell the Story of Jesus. ~Debra
