I woke up this morning happy.  Don't know why, but I just felt unspeakable joy.  Every now and then that happens...happiness so overflowing that I feel like I could explode.  No circumstances to make me feel any different...just a gift from above that day.  Anyway I was just reveling in it when we went to church and a little girl named Rhema Marvanne got up on stage to perform.

When she opened her mouth to sing I was transported.  It was astonishing.  This itty bitty thing (7 years old) was so full of God's gift of song I could hardly believe it.  I got covered in goosebumps.  I watched her through blurry eyes...trying to hold back the tears.  She really touched my heart.  Come to find out her momma was a gospel singer and died of ovarian cancer in 2008.  She is carrying on that incredible gift and talent for her momma and her love for the Lord.  It was something.

I found this footage with her story...so you can be covered in goosebumps too.  If you like that sort of thing;)

Have a blessed day.

***Oh and sidenote...many of you have asked me if I still love my hair.  Honey said to me just this morning and I quote, "I hate to admit this, but I really like your hair.  It even looks good when you just roll out of bed."  So YES I love it!!!  And now that I mentioned it maybe that's why I'm so happy today...HA;)  It's just easy.  I get up and brush my hair and voila...ready to go.  Gotta love that!
Pin It!


  1. Oh, what a sweet light for the Lord! She looks just like her beautiful mama.

  2. You give the impression of someone who is always happy and grateful. Strange that you should see it as strange. Still if you are feeling somewhat "different" - maybe it's cause of the full moon... It always makes me feel kind of romantic... Makes me wonder if I'm a werewolf sometimes ;)

    Keep the happiness going. And good on you for finding pleasure in, well, everything - even hair!

  3. okay. crying before I finish my first cup of coffee..

    got goosebumps with you!

    God is good..praying for her and her dad this morning...that God overwhelms them with his love and peace and continued comfort.

  4. Wow, what an amazing little girl. Wise and full of God's wisdom far beyond her 7 years.

    P.S. Note to self: don't watch at work...it's hard to stop the tears after seeing that video. :)

  5. What a beautiful little girl with a beautiful voice and soul! Thank you for sharing.

    I am so glad that you still love your hair but I have to ask because my hubby says the same thing, why do they 'hate to admit it'?? :)

  6. I LOVE stories like that.
    And I love that you're loving your hair and when the hubby does - that is quite cool!!

  7. Adore this little girl! Thanks for sharing.

  8. This is even
    more goose-bump
    creating when
    you know Rhema's
    story. Fact
    trumps fiction
    anytime in my book!
    What a special girl.
    Hope you keep that
    happy feeling all
    xx Suzanne
    PS: Glad you've
    adjusted to your
    new hair!!

  20. what a beautiful child with a powerful testimony behind her gift!

    i love that you are having a joyful happy day &yes,your hair looks fabulous
    i'm so jealous
    i just colored mine AGAIN and had my teenager cut it. i just cant stand to pay...i don't think my hair is worthy of big bucks. but maybe if i knew it would look like yours i'd go for it!!

  21. What a gift from God this little angel has!
    I have no doubt that her mother is smiling down from Heaven.

  22. I have seen her videos before! I think that is so cool you got to hear her live.

    And I would love to have hair I could just brush-and-go, and have it look that good to boot!

  23. i love days that are so full of JOY! definitely a gift from above! wow... what a beautiful beautiful gift rhema has been given.

  24. Oh I know, isn't this little gal something very special!!! I've seen another video of her singing Amazing Grace, I think from one of the songs on an album she is making or made. She was walking into a little white country church singing in the video. It's so sad about her mommy. I believe God has special plans in store for her.

    So Happy that Becky is sooo Happy! ♥

  25. OMGoodness! I've seen that little girl on youtube...everyone talks about how precious she and her dad are...she came to your church?! That's so great!
