TASTE AND SEE THE GOODNESS This past week my youngest son has played big brother to a little girl who is visiting with her parents Little Saras dream in visiting Texas has been to ride a horse which I promised we would do when I saw her at her far away home last February Needless to say as early in their visit as possible we were off to the barn with Dennis Gallaher Sara and her surrogate big brother to ride Pan cho the Wonder Horse Pancho is a great guy as far as four hoofed hay burners go He is the favorite of all the kids because Pancho doesnt get too excited about anything Hell trot canter or walk on com mand and will put up incessantly with every Giddyap a kid can toss out And best of all he does it with a good atti tude Kind of a Golden Retriever of the barn yard So here are Sara and Joseph riding around the pasture with Saras dad far enough away for independence but close enough to catch a kid having the time of her life The sun is going down and the air has cooled putting the perfect edge on the trail ride But Joseph being the astute eightyearold that he is knows the time is growing short That is when he turns to Sara and says with candor and grace When my Dad says its time to go Ill start to whine and hell let us ride for five more Little turkey I guess he has me figured out better than I thought The truth is I really want to go the extra mile with my kids especially during those Kodak moments of life when they are having the time of their lives just being kids In fact as a parent there is no greater joy that comes my way than to see my children happy and content with a blessing that I have helped bring their way The joy that I have thinking about those kids on Pancho will last much longer than the moments they shared together The only proof necessary of the greater blessing in giving to our kids is the strong emotions that remain in the heart of a parent So why do you think it is any different with our Father God You see we really do have a problem believing that He desire our happiness even more than we do In fact Jesus went so far with the Fathers commitment that He repeated four times at the Last Supper the promise if you ask anything in My name I will do The simplicity of the statement is Ask anything and I will do In other words the greatest pleasure of the Trinity is to bless the children And that means to give them the desires of their hearts to allow peace joy and blessing to reign instead of sickness distress and sorrow Joseph knows the heart of his father is always turned toward blessing He knows that 1 would not withhold from him the desire of his heart even if it was something as simple as rid ing Pancho for five minutes more As long as it does not hurt him and is in his very best interest I would not willingly withhold any good thing from him And often I want to give to him just because it will make him happy His happiness after all is one of my greatest joys So it is with our Father in Heaven Our hap piness is one of His greatest joys And like chil dren who know their fathers heart is turned to them for blessing we need to be reminded that Gods heart is turned toward His children Jesus said Do not fear little flock for it is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the Start asking again friend for the simple pleasures of life When they come they are sure to be fresh with the scent of Heaven And thank God A word of childlike thanks goes deep into the Fathers heart Take a lesson from a wise little boy named Joseph and taste and see the goodness of the Fathers pleasure But just one last thing Please dont whine Dennis Gallaher is pas tor of Freedom Fel lowship Unforgettable Wink Wink Kelso spends much of his time working with March for Jesus vols By WENDY MICHAELIS Special to the HeraJdZeitung Wink Kelso I know Wink Kel so Whats he up to these days This is a familiar strain to friends of Wink Kelso To the many who know him Wink is unforgettable But in case you dont know him heres an introduction and a bit about what hes up to these days You may have seen Kelso leading worship music on several occasions around the city Every Sunday since October 1991 he has led the people at Freedom Fellowship Church in wor shipping God For the last three years Kelso has participated in the music surrounding the National Day of Prayer Maybe you saw him clad with his guitar in Landa Park prior to the Walk for Life or in the gazebo after the Life Chain You may have found him at a citywide praise rally or a community Thanksgiving service Those of you attending the Marriage Intimacy Work shop last month got to hear one of his latest songs inspired by the workshop If you havent met him yet youll se him June 25 among the couple of thou sand people expected to March for Jesus through the streets of New Braunfels Kelso one of the coordi nators for the New Braunfels March for Jesus is excited about this years march Kelso who coordinatcdNew Braun fcls first march last year heard about the march in 1992 and went to San Antonio to see what it was all about It was a fantastic experience to be out on the streets singing and praising God with all those people It really fired me up to do it in New Braun Kelso explains Another one of his motivations was to give the com munity a picture of the church by bringing the churches outside their walls Kelso says the people who turned out for the 1993 march sur prised him and his fellow organizers Scott Tjcrnagel pastor of Mission Val ley Bible Church and his wife Glyn Last year I just wanted the event to come off My goal for this years march is for it to be a tool for unifying the churches in the city I would like to see many more citywide events taking Kelso says Twelve churches participated in last years march and according to Kelso to date 15 are signed up to partici pate in this years march Kelso says Although the march is primarily being sponsored and publicized by churches it is for anybody who wants to come out and sing songs to the Lord If the whole city turned out that would be great Kelso expects to see colorful ban ners balloons and people signing at the march Its a very festive occasion This is not a protest march its a cele bration he explains As one of the march organizers Kelso says he spends a lot of time on the phone and working with volun teers He says of the volunteers The more people we can get involved the better the Kelso says he could especially use volunteers for the sound committee site management and ban ner making Kclsos lifetime of music attracted him to the march Starting with fami ly singalongs accompanied by his grandfather on the guitar Kelsos music career included playing in bands from age 15 through his college years at Trinity University He played with a band in the San Antonio area for the next couple of years before his interests shifted to writing music Among his works he and a partner wrote a rock opera based on Alice in Wonderland that fared well locally and regionally After becoming a Christian in the mid70s Kelso began writing Christ ian music and performing with his band Brother Love Over a period of time my interest went from performing to praise and worship Kelso explains He has been a song leader at several churches and officially joins the staff at Freedom Fellowship June 1 Kelso continues to write songs and is looking forward to more time to devote to music writing and recording after June 1 Wendy Michaelis is a contributing writer for the New tiraunfels Ilerald HeraldZeltung photo by JOHN HUSETH The March For Jesus set for June 25
