“Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The Lord has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; You shall see disaster no more. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: ‘Do not fear; Zion, let not your hands be weak. The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.’ ‘I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, Who are among you, To whom its reproach is a burden. Behold, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; I will save the lame, And gather those who were driven out; I will appoint them for praise and fame In every land where they were put to shame. At that time I will bring you back, Even at the time I gather you; For I will give you fame and praise Among all the peoples of the earth, When I return your captives before your eyes,’ Says the Lord” (New King James Version, Zephaniah 3:14-20).
The Lord has shown me so many times over the last six years this promise. I really believe He has out done every other time this year. First, the same week that I finished my probation time is the same week that the video of my testimony was released. I am very grateful to the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma for giving me this opportunity.
Second, was being able to see my son, Kevin Heffron Jr. grow to be a man. In March he turned 18, May he graduated high school and in June he left to go to Marine Boot Camp. Just this last week, the funds were provided for us, my daughter, grandson, nephew and myself, to travel to San Diego, California to see him graduate a Marine. I am so proud to be able to share the following pictures that were taken to be able to savor the moment.
