She Can Sing

People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Luke 18:15-17

I was reminded on this scripture last night when I watched the Kids Rock Choir at First Baptist Church of Brazoria perform their annual Christmas program, “The Present is the Future”.   They shared the true meaning of Christmas sharing the message without Jesus we have no future. Their enthusiasm was contagious, the music upbeat, and choreography flamboyant.

In addition to sharing Jesus the performance held additional sentiment for me. To have the honor of seeing both my daughter and granddaughter use their God-given talent to bring glory and honor to Jesus was the icing on the cake!

Brandi my daughter has such a passion for Jesus and for music. I am so proud of her for dedicating her life to Jesus and sharing her passion for music with the next generation. The children just love her and it is obvious she loves them too.

Seeing Cheyenne, my granddaughter celebrating Jesus through drama and music, made me so excited. Cheyenne and I have sang songs to the radio or CDs  in the car but I have never heard her sing a solo. She grabbed the microphone and sang like a pro! The first thing that went through my mind was…

She Can Sing!!!

God is so good to give Cheyenne a beautiful voice and to allow our family’s passion for music to be carried on to the next generation.

Thank you for allowing me a moment to be Mom and Meme…

Love Lee ♥ 

Cheyenne Got It Started

Traditions are so important to pass on to the next generation but one tradition in our family was started by my Granddaughter. 

We love getting away when we can and the timing was perfect to take a trip in the RV to Lake Texana for my Birthday. One afternoon while we were sitting out under the trees having coffee, the phone rang. It was our precious Cheyenne  and she said, “Hi Meme; where are you?” I told her Papa and I were camping at Lake Texana. Then she asked, “But what about your Birthday? It’s your Birthday and we have to have a party.” I told her Meme’s don’t have Birthday parties we go camping. She responded, “No Meme EVERYONE has to have a Birthday party and we have to have a party for you!”

She was so insistent and would not take no for an answer so I promised her when I returned home we would have a party and celebrate my Birthday. That seemed to pacify her for the time being. But on Sunday as we were traveling home the phone rang again. It was Chey, “Meme are you coming home for your party?”  I assured her again we would have a party.

The pressure was on…I was headed home and my Granddaughter was meeting me at my house to celebrate my Birthday. What on earth could I do quickly? Then it came to me…We will just have a little tea party.

When I arrived home, I pulled out a flowered table-cloth and put it on the table, grabbed some cute dishes I had tucked away in the buffet and filled them with nuts, Cheetos, and M&Ms, made some peanut butter and jelly finger sandwiches, brewed a pot of tea and we were ready to party! The guest list was short…just Cheyenne, Richard and I but we had loads of fun!

That was my very first Birthday Tea and every year since Cheyenne asks, “Hey Meme, what day are we having your Tea Party this year?”

Today we are celebrating the 5th Annual Birthday Tea…”La Tea Dah”.  Though guest list has grown considerably and the menu has gotten much tastier with each passing year I will never forget my first Tea Party with my Granddaughter and how a new tradition got started.

Thank You Cheyenne!
