|Leaving your mark|
How long has it been since you've played with Silly Putty? If you're like me, it's probably been awhile. Maybe you're even wondering if they make it anymore? Well, they do!
Silly putty is a modeling compound which is used for a variety of purposes and pleasures, but the one image that comes to my mind is its transferability. You can "lift" images from newsprint or other textile sources - even those as detailed as a finger print. It's a way to leave an impression or your mark.
Scripture talks about leaving marks. The first is the mark that God put on Cain so his life would be spared (Gen. 4:15). Further in scripture we hear of how Thomas would not believe unless he could see and touch the nail marks of Jesus (John 20:25). These are two very important "impressions" made, as they both signify the saving grace of our Heavenly Father.
What kind of mark or impression do you hope to make this year? As you open your doors this year there will be excitement and enthusiasm in the air by students, parents and teachers. The opportunity to leave the Gospel mark is your number one priority - whether you teach music, art, science or religion. Take every opportunity to share Christ, in all His fullness. That mark is one with eternal blessings!
Joy and peace this school year!

|Wendysue Music Ministry|
| My touring music ministry is back! Three years ago, I traded in my tour bus (OK, it's a mini-van) for an office at my church as full time manager of worship and music. Well, a new season has begun and I am happy to be returning to traveling ministry this fall! I am actually stoked (that implies fired up) to once again sing at a church in my area or enjoy a road trip to another beautiful state in this great country (I've served in 25 states so far).
I am seeking to assist the Church in three main areas:
....WORSHIP (guest worship leader or consultant)
....CONCERTS (family, community, or retreat events)
....EDUCATION (private instruction plus grade school enhancement programs in vocal music and drama)
Would you like to help? Here are a few ways you can:
-PRAY that God will use me and the gifts He's given me to assist His Church and spread the gospel of Jesus.
-VIEW my updated website - see the video on the home page, leave a reply to my blog.
-VISIT AND LIKE ME - on facebook - so, asking people to 'like' you is now acceptable - and encouraged! ;-)
-REFER me to a church and pastor anywhere in the country who may have an interest or need in their music and worship ministries.
Thank you in advance for your support. It is a joy to partner with you in the mission of Christ, as we encourage one another and build each other up.
I look forward to hearing from you!
