EO_MattersCruiseScreenShotHey friends-

The CRUISE is back!

For those of you that don’t know, we were scheduled on a cruise next February (2016), but the cruise line had to cancel that particular week which sent EO Tours scrambling to re-schedule.  But, the dust has settled and the first Matters of the Heart cruise is ready to set sail!

For more information, here’s the brochure.

Less than an hour before the service yesterday, my phone rang in my pocket.  It was our pastor.  “I was just in a bad accident.  Someone ran a red light and hit our car.  I don’t think I will be able to make it in to the service today.  Can you let my wife know?”  His wife had come in early to rehearse the choir.  Their daughter and granddaughter were in the car, too.  Our associate pastor was out of town with some men on a retreat.  “Dámaris, you’re speaking.” our pastor’s wife said, after praying with the choir, and then she rushed out to help her husband deal with the car and the hospital visit to assure everyone was okay.  They are, thank God, just sore and shaken up.

From one of the most well-known scripture passages, Dámaris shows us how the mighty Lion of Judah is the Great Shepherd, and is also the Lamb of God. Listen in as Dámaris unpacks these six short but deep verses.

Keep Running

In Luke 18:1, Jesus teaches us that we should “… pray and not give up.”  But, what do we do while we are waiting for answers to prayer?  On Mother’s Day, Dámaris gave us some insight on what to do while we wait.

The Voice

04/24/2015

Thank you to all who have prayed for me and to those who have so kindly expressed concern about my voice.  I mentioned in an earlier post the visit to Philly where I met two wonderful doctors.  They discovered what was causing the irritation in my vocal chords.  Would you believe that I’ve suffered (for probably many years) with what they call the “silent” acid reflux (GERD)?  This usually happens when you’re sleeping. I’ve never experienced heartburn during the day and almost never at night, either.  However, when I thought about it I remembered how some nights I would awaken with the most painful chest pains that I thought were spasms.
They prescribed some pretty strong meds that I have been on since early March.  Friends, I can already feel and hear the difference!
I’ve also been working with a speech pathologist and a voice coach who are guiding me through the recovery process with breathing techniques and warm-up exercises.  They’re wonderful!
There are other behavioral patterns I must change and live with like less coffee and no eating three hours before going to bed, but that’s doable and honestly not that hard.  The big wedge that I sleep on now is a little hard to get used to but again, doable.
Having to submit to doctors (honestly, to anybody) is not something that comes naturally to me.  Oh, but the joy that comes when you die to your own will and live to please the One who also said to His Father, “Nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”
May you recognize the true “Voice” of the Lord in any area of your life where changes need to be made.  A willing heart is all you need.  He is the One who is faithful and will do it.
Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Dear Friends:

Greetings in His matchless name! Yesterday, March 11th, Rod and I traveled to Philadelphia to see a very well known and respected ENT doctor. The office walls were lined with photographs of famous patients who had been treated by him and were so grateful for the help they received. Pavarotti was one of them. Need I say more?

How we even found out about this doctor is another precious story as to the way the Lord leads His dear children along. I was in concert (more…)
