Dear Family and Friends,

I trust each of you had a wonderful MLK weekend.

Thank you, Rev Wanda, for a wonderful message and reminder that each of our internal songs is eternal.

Dr. King’s song, also known as his dream, has not been reached yet, so that verse shall remain as part of my internal song that I will continue to sing until that dream becomes manifest or my body chooses to leave this plane. And there are a few verses of my internal song that no longer resonate with my heart and soul, so this new year allows me the opportunity to choose that which now brings my heart the utmost joy.

Perhaps some of you are in need of a “new song.” If so, please join me in updating, shifting, and evolving those verses that bring you new growth. If I can be of assistance, please reach out.

I Will Sing a New Song
by Howard Thurman

 The old song of my spirit has wearied itself out.
It has long ago been learned by my heart;
It repeats itself over and over,
bringing no added joy to my days or lift to my spirit.

 I will sing a new song.

 I must learn the new song for the new needs.
I must fashion new words born of all the new growth
of my life – of my mind – of my spirit.
I must prepare for new melodies that have never been mine before,
that all that is within me may lift my voice unto God.
Therefore, I shall rejoice with each new day
and delight my spirit in each fresh unfolding.

I will sing, this day, a new song unto the Lord.



Much Love,
Rev. Staci
