Greetings everyone. Boy this year has been something else!!! Almost glad it is almost over. We have had some tough moments early on. In the Spring, our 27yro grandson had not 1 but 2 heart attacks and 2 open heart surgeries. Plus his body was riddled with at least 3 different infections. Good news-God brought him through it all. We still have him. In June I tested positive for the covid-19. I had a mild case and since we had warm weather I spent most of my time on my patio getting as much vitamin D from the sun. Drank lots of liquids, took multivitamin supplements, lots of organic chicken broth and soup and did sage steams. Then the Lord in spite of the pandemic, blessed us financially and God gave me my hearts desire of a particular suite suitable for my own studio so that I can relaunch my Patspraze Gospel Music program. Today is my 70th birthday and I am thankful that I am in relatively good health to continue doing my Father's work. Praying for His leading in the new year. This year the Lord has helped me let go of a lot of spiritual baggage. I was reminded of what's more important in this life and learned to be content and appreciative of what I have in this life.
How has your year been? What are your plans for the coming year? I'm praying for a blessed year for everyone. It is more important then ever before to get the Gospel Message out to a dying and confused world. We must work together to do The Father's will and reach souls with the tools he has given all of us. We cannot afford to neglect the calling He has given all of us. How can we help each other to reach the lost at any cost. Surely we can find ways to help one another to accomplish our callings. Blessing to everyone of you. In Christ, Pat Skinner

Monday Morning song.... wow January is almost half over...did you make resolutions or goals for 2020? How's that going so far. Me? I haven't even started. was sick with whatever was going around during the Holidays and am having trouble getting back on track. One of my favorite songs this time of year is a song originally recorded by Sandi Patty. Here is my version video taped for my Patspraze Gospel Music program several years ago. https://youtu.be/PrF2SwHSKYQ?list=PL8DBE90573A4239A0

Hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving-. It is supposed to be a time of love and gratitude-hospitality-a time of sharing with family and friends. Unfortunately it isn't always a time of celebration. For some it comes at time of loneliness - people who no longer have loved ones close for any number of reasons. Or when the family is dysfunctional such in the case of divorce - addictions - misunderstandings. Steve and I experienced this first hand this year - seeing some of our family members torn apart and rifts within the family. We chose to spend it alone without all the drama. But thanks to our Pastor our thanksgiving day was redeemed when he asked us to take a meal to an elderly person living alone. It made our day to visit with this person-stepping outside of our comfort zone and giving of ourselves to someone else. We were THANK(S)ful that we could do our part by GIVING to someone else. It isn't about us and what we get or don't get. It is about what we can give to others in the way of LOVE.

God Created Music!
Down through the ages God has inspired men and women to write beautiful songs of praise to Him. These songs need a voice, especially today.
I want to use my voice as the instrument to share this message with those who are hurting or feeling lost or lonely; to show them through song the message of God’s love and Salvation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I also want to share with those who have a “melody in their hearts,” but don’t know the words to express their love for their Creator and Savior.

I realize by the calendar that Spring isn't offically here, but today it sure feels like it. I love Spring. Nature revives herself from her winters hybernation and springs forth with new life, new hope for recreation and the smells and colors of new beginnings...the birds return, singing praise for the new day, little buds burst forth on the trees with the promise of new leaves, new fruit. The grass returns from it's brown dormant state and shoots forth blades of green.
Just like Spring, my spirit now springs forth with new hope, regeneration after what seemed like an eternity of cold, dark, winter. Just like the birds my soul wants to burst out with song in praise for the refreshing God has brought into my life. I am ready to go forth into the world (or maybe just outside on my front porch) and breathe in the awesomeness of a new season, full of God's promises and hope for better things to come. "O Lord My God...how great thou art..."
