Gwen, "Like" simply isn't a big enough word to describe the intense feelings of joy, respect, pain, despair, hope, growth, love, rebirth, and gratitude generated by your voice and songs on your Honey for Queens CD. You took me through a range of emotions, feelings and experiences that replayed my journey.
You have touched my heart, watered my spirit and fed my soul with your wisdom, hugs, hope, empathy, prayers and words of encouragement.
I too have wondered if one person can really make a difference. Frequently I feel I have not, despite giving my heart, health and soul to my passions of children, education and mental healthcare. Heartbreak, physical abuse and severe illness left me hopeless. Discouragement, fear, physical and emotional pain had been my companions for a very long time.
That is until you made me remember who I am, a precious child of God. Valued, significant and special simply because I am! Chosen, claimed and confirmed as God's child! You and your songs have healed me, given me HOPE and left me filled with JOY!
Your songs inspire feelings of joy, hope and healing, and the knowledge that I am a Queen!
I'm a D.I.V.A., who can move her body, heart and soul with elation and allow the Spirit to fill me with JOY!
What Child Is This, reminds me that hope came, that God fulfilled his promise, and to REJOICE!
Z-Free, Oh Baby, does that one hit home! Through trial and tribulation I've learned I CAN deal with the pain, through Him, who strengthens me!
And finally, I Surrender All, moves me to remember grace, gratitude, and peace. I am SAFE, I can REST, in His arms, in PEACE, when I surrender to Him!
Your message taught me that no one else needs to recognize my Queenship! Or affirm that I've made a difference, because HE knows! Your voice and songs reminded me that as long as I honor Him, I'm a Queen and “a Queen is a Queen…no matter WHERE she’s from.” Even me! ❤
Thank You and God Bless,
