#TuesdayTreasure Our Heritage

Good Morning Friends!

My scheduled guest was unable to appear today so I'm improvising.

Not that I don't have a LOT to treasure....LOL!

I just don't have a lot of time today to put together the post I want so...One thing I treasure is my heritage and the fact I am part Cherokee. So it was a wonderful experience to visit the Museum of the Cherokee and the Oconaluftee Indian Village, in Cherokee, NC earlier this month.

Here's a slide show of some photos we took while there...



Enjoy and remember....your heritage is always something to treasure.

Hope to see you again, and every week for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts, and Saturday Spotlight.

Until next time, take care and God Bless.

#SaturdaySpotlight is on Pastor Brian Hollins

Hello There and Welcome to the LAST Saturday Spotlight of September!

Today's guest is new and brought to us by Prime Star Publicity.

Pastor Hollins was born in Los Angeles Ca, in 1963. He moved to Shreveport La. as a child where he presently resides.   He was called to ministry in November of 1999.  On August 10, 2002, Pastor Hollins was appointed to the position of Pastor of Emmanuel Church of God in Christ.  On May 23, 2007, Pastor Brian and First Lady Henrietta founded Emmanuel Christian Ministries renamed Abounding Grace in 2013. Pastor Hollins founded “Have Faith in God” Radio Broadcast which is heard mornings at 9:00am CST, on KOKA radio 980AM and www.koka.am and on “The Promise” on 90.7FM at 3:30pm to 4:00pm

He is the author of two books “Don’t Take The Bait” and “Have You Received Since You Believed”. Pastor Hollins also serves as a Volunteer Chaplain for the Shreveport Fire Department. Pastor Hollins served 28 years in the Fire Service and retired March of 2009, holding the position of Chief Training Officer. He has been married for 30 years to his beautiful wife Henrietta.


Now let's enjoy an excerpt from Pastor Hollins's book, Have you Received since you Believed; Quest for the Holy Spirit....

I wrote this book in 2009, a year after receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I’m sharing it with you now because I believe it will help you find and understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit. As a pastor, I am ashamed to say that for the first five years of my ministry I never really preached on the Holy Spirit. Looking back, I realize how uncomfortable I was with the topic, so I just avoided teaching on it altogether.

One day I found myself at the end of my rope, and I was ready to call it quits. I knew something was missing, and I knew it was the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Don’t ask me how I knew, I just knew. I felt that I was laboring on my own. I studied the word of God and taught each message from the Bible, yet I had a great void that was only getting larger by the week. 

On this day I looked at my wife and said, “Baby, I don’t know if I can do this the rest of my life.”

It is my belief that many Christians today are falling away just due to the lack of receiving the Holy Spirit. Jesus made it clear that he would not leave us comfortless, that he would pray to the Father to send another comforter. I began to read everything I could get my hands on about the Holy Spirit. I read so much that some of the information served to confuse me even more. But I realize now how that was all a part of seeking and finding. When we seek on our own in the natural, God makes it super- natural, and things begin to happen that really can’t be explained.

All I know now is that after receiving the Holy Spirit, my life is not the same. I said earlier that I could not see myself being a pastor for the rest of my life. Now I can’t see myself doing anything else but serving God, teaching and preaching his word all my life. I believe you are reading this book because you, too, are seeking to fill a void that can only be filled by the Holy Spirit. You are on the right track and before you know it, you will be sharing your testimony of receiving the Holy Spirit.

*****

Sounds like a very good read.  Have you Received since you Believed; Quest for the Holy Spirit can be purchased at Amazon.

Hope you enjoyed today's spotlight and that you'll stop by weekly for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.

Until next time, take care and God Bless.

#ThursdayThoughts Fall #RomanticTravel with @TinaGayle

Good Morning Friends,

Today I'm pleased to bring you Fall Romantic Travel with the gal who started it all, Ms. Tina Gayle.


Tina is not a newcomer to our blog so I'm not going to take up a lot of your time with chit chat, but let her get right into her idea of romantic travel.....

One of my favorite romantic trips is to Vegas. We had plenty of time to shop, people watch and visit the sites. Also what topped the trip off was taking a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. Having never been up in a helicopter before this along was a treat. The trip to the canyon and back was awesome too.


 CEO’s Widow  - Book 4 of the Executives' Wives' Club series

Genre: Contemporary Romance with strong women fiction elements
Four women...
One fatal car wreck...
                           Everyone's lives changed...


After surviving the grief from her husband’s death, Marianne Clark has built a new life with the help of the other Executive Wives. She plans to enjoy grandchildren and friends until her doctor tells her he found a lump in her breast. Her world turned upside down. She re-evaluates her priorities and decides she grab hold of life with both hands.

Knox Turner lost is first wife to cancer. He’s determined not to let Marianne face this challenge alone. 


Can this couple face the trails ahead and build a future together?

Excerpt:
Incapable of resisting, Marianne set a hand on his chest and absorbed the pleasure of being in this man’s arms again. Too bad the bliss couldn’t last longer. He needed to get back to work. She had errands to run. “Knox, you’re making it harder and harder to resist you.”
“Then don’t. We’ve both had more than enough time to know what we want. Jack and Betty both died almost two years ago. We needed to move on.” He caressed a hand along her back, easing her body even closer to the hard line of his.

Marianne smiled. She’d known him for years as her husband’s boss and respected for all he’d accomplished in the business world. Her hang-up over their age difference grew less and less important as more time passed. “Shouldn’t we at least date a few other people first? Test the water. Make sure we’re not making a mistake by latching onto the first person we’re attracted to.”

“Good, so you admit you find me attractive?” He lowered his head and nuzzled the side of her neck, playfully nipping at her ear.

She sighed. His tantalizing touch and the deep rumble of his voice tempted her into sliding her hand along the back of his neck. Her fingers slid through his silky hair, and she marveled at sensual thrill of being so close to him. For months now, she’d convinced herself her life was full enough with just her kids and grandkids.

Could she be wrong?

The CEO's Widow is available at Amazon Worldwide exclusively.

Tina Gayle loves writing and is currently working on finishing her Family Tree series, a contemporary paranormal suspense series.
