Normally the kids have their piano recital at USFs school of music. They sit on stage and play on a beautiful grande piano. This year we did zoom recitals. Amanda, their piano teacher came by a few days early to give Natalie her 5 year award. It was a sad moment when Kobe ran out of the house to greet her and then screeched to a halt when he remembered he could not give hugs. On a positive we were crazy proud of both of the kids dedication this year. The last few years had been difficult for Kobe. Getting him to practice was like pulling teeth and every week he wanted to quit. He finally seems to be over the hump and having a good time on the keys again. I think playing percussion in band this year has helped. Here is to more years of music and mayhem.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
