Heritage Blessings


“Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards – the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.” Walt Disney


The legacy of great love bestowed unto me by God thru Jason

Being honest about “to whom we were born”

and the where of it,

this is to be proud of our heritage,

our humanness encompasses,

the good, the grief and all.

Barbara Alley Hoyle

Feliz Dia de Madre


I was the proud heiress of a beautiful grand-daughter through my son Jason

Jason 1979

Jason and his cousin David sharing God’s endless love.

We sing this song every Sunday Grace alone which God supplies — Strength unknown He will provide — Christ in us, our cornerstone — We will go forth in grace alone. Every soul we long to reach — Every heart we hope to teach — Everywhere we share His peace —- is only by His grace.  Every loving word we say  — Every tear we wipe away  —Every sorrow turned to praise — is only by His grace.”
