Key Verse: Exodus 15:20

Then Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.


Remember Miriam? She was the one who 80 years before, as the older sister of Moses, watched over the little basket floating in the Nile. She arranged for Moses’ mother to care for the baby on behalf of the sister of Pharaoh who found the baby in the bulrushes. Now, about 90 years of age, she prophesies, puts those words to song, plays the timbrel, and leads the dance. Amazing! We need to celebrate too! God has fulfilled His purposes in the past; He is doing so right now; He will do so unfailingly in the future! He provides fresh water and promises, “I am the Lord who heals you!”


Lord God, You are the great “I AM” who heals me. I rest on Your promise for physical healing. I celebrate Your deliverance from the slavery of sin. I praise and worship You for who You are. I sing to You, Lord, for You have triumphed gloriously! Amen!


I plan to find our timbrel and dance. I’ll ask Norma-Jean to play on the piano a dancing song that the Cameron Family from Scotland sang and danced to on the 100 Huntley Street TV show about 25 years ago. Right now I’ll contain my exuberance and finish this blog, getting it ready for posting at just for fresh manna and spring water for you.  Please keep rejoicing! My dance later won’t be as pretty as Miriam’s I’m sure, but Norma-Jean will laugh, and she might even dance with me.

Yours to celebrate with Miriam and you,


P.S. At a family celebration, a cause for dancing was the marriage of our grandson, Eric. Another cause for celebration was the touchdown of our grandson-in-law, David Lee, who played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders as a defensive end. His wife, our granddaughter Elizabeth, could teach us a little about celebrating!!! Her dad, my son Reynold, our blog photographer, put together a Youtube video about it (click HERE).

  1. We will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted. The Lord is our strength and our defense; he has become our salvation. He is our God, and we will praise him, our father’s God, and we will exalt him.The Lord is a warrior; the Lord is his name. He split the red sea so Moses and the Israelites could be saved, healed, and set free. Such an incredible God we serve. Amen! Praying David’s prayer, this morning. His blessings upon you, fellow saints in the Lord.

  2. I’m agreeing with you Beverlee and Doreen in prayer also. I prayed for rain out in B. C. God bless you all, blog family. I pray Psalm 91 over you all also. Have a good day in the Lord.

  3. Joining you all in your prayers. Praying also for the protection of students, teachers and staff as schools re-open. The officials also need our prayers as they make the tough decisions regarding back-to-school rules.
    Oh Our God! How we need You! Thank You for new mercies every morning. We love You and ask that You help us to be Your faithful servants. Amen!

  4. “If you will listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the Lord who heals you.”
    Thank You, Father, for this beautiful world You made. And to think that no eye has seen and no one can imagine the glories of Heaven… Please help all Your people to listen carefully to You, and give us the grace to obey You, to take up our crosses and follow You. Help all of us to make good use of the time, gifts and talents You have given us. In Jesus’s great name, amen
