These Bones

This performance is special because it involves every member of our family. Even the husband is featured as the preaching voice near the end. I grew up listening to my grandmother sing a song called, "These Bones 'Gone Rise Again" and while she is no longer on earth, it was installed in me at a young age the power of fighting and resurrection.

This piece was written with several verses in mind. The opening verse is from Joel 3:9 which says "Proclaim this among
the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack" And from Ephesians 6:10-20
The elements of Ephesians were demonstrated with walking and sharing the word to the desolate, praying, declaring, and standing up to fight. It's a tale of one being fed up with their surroundings enough to go and equip and encourage others to take the armor and fight again.
