You are

I listen to this song in the car almost every day.  It's one of my favorite from Hillsong.  I know it's not new, but every time I hear it, I am ushered quickly right into the presence of God and I hear Him clearly many times as I enter in..  I listen to it several times on my way to the Omni for the meetings/retreat this past weekend.  What a joy that the worship leader for the retreat, Rebecca McInnis, led this song in worship!  I don't think I've ever heard anyone else lead it.  It was like a personal "present" to me at the retreat.    

I am getting ready this morning for an amazing day of worship, the Word, fellowship and life changes in the place I love to be most...

You are my light and salvation
Whom shall I fear
You are the strength of all my days
And whom shall I be afraid
Though war may rise against me
Of this will I be sure

That I will bless the Lord forever
I'll bless Your holy name
Yes I will bless the Lord forever
I'll bless Your holy name

Lord it is You I desire
It's You that I seek
To live with You in Your house forever
Beholding Your beauty
And in the time of trouble
Of this will I be sure

You ask me who do I
Say that You are and I
Say that You are the Christ
Son of the Living God

Hmmm what a beautiful song! I have never heard it before and I think it is most definitely going to be on of my favorites!

I find it interesting that such a "spiritual" woman as yourself has not had any time to blog about the crisis in Haiti. What's up with that?

We are launching our new church in 12 days and I have about 30 things on my to do list each day, not counting my other job as a career coach. However, I'm very touched by what's going on in Haiti, in fact Larry and I discussed it and felt very strongly we should talk about it on Sunday and take an offering to help financially over there, which we did. And we have been in intercessory prayer, of course.

Anyone who truly knows me (for you to ask this question indicates you don't know me personally) knows I have a true heart for the nations and in fact consider Africa my second home.

I haven't blogged about it for the simple reason, however that I don't have anything to say about it that is particularly noteworthy. Other newscasters and bloggers are doing just fine reporting what they know about it first hand. Many of my missionary friends are speaking first hand from their experience being there. I do not have to speak to every subject, as I may not be the best one to do it. I also need not announce what we are giving or doing in response on my blog, but to answer your question I am very much financially and with my prayers supporting Haiti as well as leading our church to do so, although I have not made a public announcement on my blog.

I am gathering by your comment that you have already posted a blog on this subject. Please post a link here to your blog and I'll be glad to direct people to it, if you have a fresh word about Haiti.

Well said, Deanna!!

Anonymous,

I always am surprised that bloggers allow critical comments from those unwilling to sign their name. If you were willing to research Deanna and her work in and out of the "ministry" you WOULD KNOW that she DOES have a heart for all missions. There are so many areas all over the world in equal to or greater than the crisis in Haiti. Just yesterday, our governor brought 59 orphans from Haiti to PA to be adopted. This is wonderful and I am happy for those children. But do you know that there are already over 20,000 children awaiting adoption in the PA foster care system? We know because we adopted two several years ago. What about those children? They need homes and families to beling to just like the children in Haiti. So Anonymous, if you have been given a burden by God for Haiti, act on it!! But my question to you is...What are you doing for those in need in your town or city?
