Many TV shows I’ve watched lately have a lot in common: home remodeling, income properties, hoarders, organizing clutter . . . first identify and clear out the old that needs to be removed and then go forward and build!
Examine everything to determine
• what should go in the “trash” bin,
• what should go in the “keep” bin,
• what should go in the “share” bin . . .
Somehow that sounds like a good process . . . starting with the old tapes in my head—
see what needs to be removed, kept, shared, and then go forward!
Jeanne Hicks Barnett thoughts — November 1, 2014
You will make known to me the path of life . . . Psalm 16:11
a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6.
My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)!
I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting!
Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
