What a wonderful day it was…and I was already blissed out from last nights meditation. I am a major chicken when it comes to driving in the Detroit area…and Joyce was at the Palace of Auburn Hills….a friend asked me a couple of weeks ago if I was going because she knew that I liked her so much and that she would like to go if I did. I told Eric when I got home and he said “Of course you should go!” I’ve been watching her almost every weekday for over 4 years…and I can’t even tell you how much that I’ve gotten from her…she is awesome! I really didn’t think that it would be that much different seeing her in person…in fact I thought watching her on t.v. was probably better because we didn’t have to do all the singing and I could see better on t.v….and have my coffee, etc. Well, it was such a great experience. I actually loved the singing…the band was “Delirious” very good…I was singing and dancing right along with them. It was exciting to see her in person…and Dave, (her husband)…he gave a very inspirational talk about being involved in our country and knowing the Constitution, living up to our responsibilities as an American…and to keep God in our country. I was full of admiration, respect and love for Joyce. She was obviously sick but never missed a beat, she didn’t even mention it, she gave it her all, smiled big and got her (God’s) message across. What really moved me though was the amount of love and warmth that radiated from her…you don’t get from the t.v. What a dynamic person, I feel so blessed that I was able to be there…I’m still buzzing….and I want more….the more I learn about God and experience His presence…the more I want….I just never want to be out of that feeling. The God that I learned about as a child was always waiting for me to mess up…which was all the time…so He could zap me….reading the Bible terrified me…but I now read it with joy and expectation because of people like Joyce, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen and the Copeland’s….and people like them….and what used to terrify me now brings me so much comfort, excitement, peace and exhilaration. The light is on.
