Hey! What a beautiful fall it has been! How have you been able to enjoy it with your loved ones?
I have had a wonderful summer of writing and critiquing with my producer, Daron, and we’re excited to release my next CD later this fall! Stay tuned!
One year ago today, Oct. 4th, 2011, I left home for what became a memorable and unforgettable tour. Thank you, Caronport High School, SK; Walkinshaw Place at Boissevain, MB; Boissevain Mennonite Brethren Church, MB; Elm Creek Mennonite Brethren Church, MB; and Bethany College, SK, for your warm welcome. I cannot wait to return to create more awesome memories! For a full photo album of this tour, please visit my Rhonda page on my Facebook link.
I will be busy this month, sharing and performing... Once again I will be returning to The House Coffee Sanctuary, to perform and share. It’s always a fun time at The House – join us sometime! I look forward to sharing an evening with the ladies in Three Hills for their Women’s Fall Event – stay tuned for ticket information. Also, thank you Valleyview Presbyterian Church for your invite to perform at your Fall Fundraiser! And, I look forward to returning to Ambrose University College to share and perform in their morning chapel.
Despite personal struggles these past few months, God has been good, and my faith has been strengthened. “Though he was God, he didn’t think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the highest place of honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:5-11 (NLT). “... humble... a slave... human being... obedience... criminal’s death...” Jesus did all of that for us. Despite our worries, fears, failures, disappointments,... we can rest (yet continue to obey), knowing that God has it under control. Where are you with your relationship with Jesus? Do you trust him? Where is your faith? God sent Jesus “as is”, and used him for his honor and our benefit. Jesus will use you “as is” and lead you a life you never thought possible. Trust me.
Thank you again for your ongoing support and encouragement – you rock! Take care, and I hope to see you soon!
