Now that you have welcomed the Anointed One, Jesus the Lord, into your lives, continue to journey with Him and allow Him to shape your life. Let your roots grow down deeply in Him, and let Him build you up on a firm foundation. Be strong in the faith, just as you were taught, and always spill over with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7 The Voice

When I was a child there were several people who influenced my life and encouraged my becoming a Christian. One of those people was Louise Amelon. She was the choir director in our church in Tulsa. She was a mentor in my childhood and teenage years. She always demanded my best whether I was singing or playing piano or helping with the catering business that our choir ran.

She was also influential by showing me how to live in difficult circumstances and be joyful. I am thankful for her influence and the lessons I learned from her. Those lessons were important to me as I became a mother and as I taught school. It was important to me that my children and students knew that they were precious and cared about by me—even when I demanded their best when they found things difficult. I am thankful for the way she taught me to be attuned to God and to enjoy the way that He placed music in my heart. The words of many songs that are a soundtrack to my life came from her.

My prayer is that any child with whom I interact will know that they are important—will become strong in faith and will experience thankfulness in all of their life circumstances.

When you are filled with the Spirit, you are empowered to speak to each other in the soulful words of pious songs, hymns, and spiritual songs; to sing and make music with your hearts attuned to God; and to give thanks to God the Father every day through the name of our Lord Jesus the Anointed for all He has done. (Ephesians 5:19-20 The Voice)

Living Lord, bless the children of today—rooted in Your truth, Your peace and surrounded by Your love. Amen
