JOANIE'S CORNER

  HELLO EVERYONE, MY NAME IS JOANIE, I HAVE A VERY EXCITING STORY TO   TELL YOU.THIS PAST WEEKEND I WENT TO A SMALL TOWN IN SOUTHERN 
MISSOURI TO LISTEN TO MY GRANDMA TELL PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS.
WHEN WE GOT TO THE PLACE WHERE WE WERE TO HAVE THE SERVICE,
IT WAS A CAMPGROUND WITH A BIG COVERED AUDITORIUM. 
WELL AT FIRST I THOUGHT,"OH GREAT, WERE GOING TO GET EATEN
UP BY BUGS", THEN I REALIZED THE FUN MY LITTLE BROTHER AND I COULD HAVE RUNNING AROUND EXPLORING THIS BIG NEW PLACE.THE MUSIC STARTED AND WE STARTED TO SING AND WE WERE LIKE THE BUGS TO A CANDLE,JESUS  PRESENCE WAS SO REAL IT WAS LIKE HE WAS WALKING 
THROUGH THE ROWS OF CHAIRS.  WE COULD NOT LEAVE THAT PLACE FOR ANYTHING.WELL MABY FOR A DOUBLE SCOOPICE CREAM CONE....OR MAYBE  NOT.ANYWAY GRANDMA STARTED TELLING A GREAT STORY ABOUT A HEALING JESUS AND ME AND ANTHONY  WERE MEMORIZE. WE COULD HEAR PEOPLE
CRYING A TELLING JESUS HOW MUCH THEY LOVED HIM AND TALKING
IN DIFFERENT ACCENTS, (MOM SAYS ITS CALLED SPEAKING IN TONGUES ).  JUST THEN I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD SAY, JOANIE,THERE IS A LADY 
HERE WITH A CLAWED HAND,I FELT LIKE I COULD SEE THE HAND IN FRONT 
OF ME AND HE SAID GO FIND HER AND PRAY FOR HER. I LOOKED AROUND 
AND GRANDMA WAS PRAYING FOR SOMEONE AND I KNEW I HAD TO DO 
WHAT THE LORDS VOICE SAID. I LOOKED UP AND TWO MEN WERE PRAYING WITH A LADY AND WHEN THEY LEFT SHE WAS CRYING AND I WALKED UP TO HER AND SAW SHE WAS THE ONE, THE ONE WITH CLOSED HAND.
  I SAID, LADY JESUS JUST TOLD ME TO COME AND PRAY FOR YOU
ABOUT YOUR HAND CAN WE PRAY I THINK HE WANTS TO MAKE IT OPEN.  WE PRAYED AND SURE ENOUGH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER WHOLE LIFE 
SHE COULD MAKE THE NUMBER FIVE WITH HER FINGERS.BOY THAT WAS NEAT, 
   I CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK TO SCHOOL TO TELL MY FRIENDS ABOUT THE LADY WITH ONLY A FIST. BUT NOW,BECAUSE SHE HAD ASKED JESUS TO HEAL HER SHE CAN MAKE FIVE AND I WAS THE FIRST ONE TO GET TO HOLD HER HAND.  SHE HAD BEEN PRAYING  FOR SO LONG THIS WAS THE NIGHT HE
HAD IN MIND TO HEAL HER.    ( MY MOM SAYS HE KNEW HER SORROW AND HAD SAVED HER TEARS). 
  I AM SO GLAD I WENT WITH MY GRANDMA AND GRANDPA.
I WANT TO BE A SERVANT EVEN IF I AM JUST A KID, I KNOW HE HAS A REALLY BIG PLAN FOR ME.
  HE HAS A BIG PLAN FOR MY LITTLE BROTHER TOO... PROBABLE IN A TOY FACTORY AS A TESTER OR MAYBE IN A  COOKIE SHOP AS A TASTER OR MAYBE
AS A  UH, UH, OH ,
WHO KNOWS.. WE LOVE JESUS HOW 'A'BOUT YOU! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
