Dear Carolyn, I so enjoyed and was blessed by your Sermon on Love. I have never read a more comprehensive (all encompassing) lesson on love! What a blessing you are to the Body of Christ as He uses you so powerfully to impart His Truths! Love and Appreciation, Aileen 
I am deeply touched and greatly blessed by this anointed writing.  You can quote me on that, if you wish, Mom. I love you!!! (With three, or four, explanation marks!) --- Shanna --- Sent from my iPhone On Jan 22, 2016, at 10:43 PM, CAROLYN <casissom@comcast.net> wrote:
Carolyn, This is so beautiful. I could feel the flow of the Holy Spirit as I read each beautiful line. This really touched my heart. You are such a blessing to me and the church. There never has been or ever will be another love as what I have for Jesus. He is my first love.
My Dearest Carolyn, You are a saint and hero all wrapped into one. I have admired your work and ministry these years since our first meeting. I, and Bev, carry a deep and abiding love for you and for all you stand for. When the time is right, I want to come for a visit. Love ya, Ras
I was sick and getting sicker.   On May 22, 2015, it culminated in a stroke.   Thankfully, my husband was home.   It could’ve been that he was at the office that day, but I wanted to go to the emergency room due to my illness. I got out of the shower, and then it hit.  I had the stroke. Being at the hospital seven days, there was plenty of opportunity to do a thoughtful contemplation.  I really wondered what was going on.   I didn’t hear the LORD.  I wondered why I didn’t hear the LORD.   Day after day in the hospital, I lay and I didn’t hear the His voice to me.   But His Holy Spirit in me, rose up and I prayed in the Spirit.   Now, that was something!   The Holy Spirit prayed through me.   It was an awesome moment, awesome in that I could barely speak.   When you have a stroke, you don’t talk.   My natural language, though I could think straight, was not coming out.   Yet, I could pray in ever-flowing tongues.     This was marvelous to me.    The speech did not affect, for the most part, my singing.   I came home and started to play the piano and sing, a little rough at first.      But I was back in the hospital within a week, not a stroke, but the other incident that led me into the stroke.   I had a condition known as ulcerative colitis.    They once again told me, because I have had this happen before ten years earlier, that I would have to have my large intestines taken out.  That didn’t happen, praise God!   My prognosis was to see if medicines could alleviate my condition.   After six days in the hospital, I was home with a ton of prescriptions to take.    I finally discovered what was the source of my gastrointestinal problems.    I had chewed gum almost every day that includes sorbitol, a known irritant to gastrointestinal problems.   Sorbitol doesn’t digest properly. My recuperative time were days of singing to the Lord and reading portions of Scripture.   Then I heard from Him.  I was about to close the piano and go.   But I heard the Holy Spirit saying to write a song.    “This is my song to you.  And you will sing it before crowds of people.  Yet I will come to you and sing it personally.  This is my song to you.”  I sat down and immediately wrote, “I have loved you.  I have loved you with an everlasting love.”   Ah, sweetness!   God was speaking His love for me!  “With an everlasting love”!   Oh, the joy of that moment! A month later of my last hospital stay, on July 5th, 2015, I was back to lead worship at church---a little hesitant, but they prayed for me and I made it through.    It amazed the people that I could lead worship at our annual conference in July.   If you were in a real lengthy discussion with me, I was a little less than coherent, but that was not the point.  I was there.  At the end of the conference, I played my song, “I Have Loved You”.  God allowed this.   He did it to prove that the devil is a liar.   I was supposed to have started full-time as music minister in the beginning of June.   I couldn’t.   But I was determined to play because that is my calling.  I started a little late … but with God on time!  God was just going to show what He could do with me.   To God be the glory!    God allowed this.   God used this to show me how much my husband loved me.    He really did! My husband struggled almost to the point of exhaustion through my weeks of illness, visiting me at the hospital, taking my medication, and with a job to boot.  I cried with tears of joy, the many times I thought of it after.    The love of Christ was extended to me.   My husband and all my children were there.  My sister and her clan came in from California.  My church was there, some ministers of the Lord, and even some people I didn’t see often were there. “God allowed this,” a prophet of God told me.   “You have not cursed God.”  And I hadn’t.   The attack of the enemy came.   But my sweet husband really, really loving me was a greater joy!   That joy far out weighed the pain it took.   If you wait towards the end, God always brings forth the JOY of victory. “I Have Loved You” I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have saved you; I have saved you With an everlasting love I have saved you; I have saved you With an everlasting love   Who can separate us from the love of Christ! Who can keep us apart? Who can separate us from the love of Christ! Yes, you have stolen my heart!   I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love   The breadth, length, height and depth beyond conception Of the love lavished on us To know the love of Christ that exceeds perception,  His love so boundless!  His love so boundless! His love so boundless!   I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love I have loved you; I have loved you With an everlasting love   Many waters cannot quench love,  Neither floods drown it, too. Christ gave Himself up, up for love,  A fragrant offering, a sacrifice  … for you.      
Wish we had been there! Awesome words and insight - THANK YOU for your faithfulness! Gina Tanner
Thanks Carolyn, “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away” may not always be true. You have always been my encourager Carolyn. And you already know I am president of your fan club. Hope to work out a visit with you and your most precious people in God’s good timing. May God ignite your fires to a roar today at Eastgate.
Isn’t it amazing that, once Jesus begins to teach about NT fellowship with Himself… in and through His Corporate Body (eating His flesh and drinking His blood)… that many of His disciples draw back and walk no more with Him, because they realize they can no longer approach Him with a “what’s in it for me?”- mentality?  They realize it is no longer just about “me and the Lord”; but also laying down their lives for one another.  And this occurs in John 6:66?  666 ~ the same mark received by the harlot church in the wilderness in Rev. 13, distinguishing them from the Overcomers who stand with the Lamb on Mt. Zion??  The Overcomers are dead-to-self!  The works of men glorify men, the works of God glorify the Lamb:-)  There is an element of “being under the Law of Moses” which is being missed by the current “Grace Movement”… “uncircumcision” (Gal. 5:6).  It believes that, because we are no longer under the letter of the written word of God, we are simply free to "love God, and do WHATEVER"; which translates into: “Freedom to ‘love God’ and SERVE OURSELVES.”  This is a perversion of the true Grace of Christ, just like the Book of Jude describes.  Blessings, Pastor Carolyn.  ~John & Kelly        
Thank you,  once again, for this excellent study, Carolyn.  God bless you!  Sara Ballenger

Anyway, this word resonates with me very much.  Thanks for being bold to share. Darren
From: Heather Sent: Monday, June 08, 2015 9:25 PM  Subject: Re: Worship on June 7   Dear all,   I am truly humbled to have been able to be a part of your group leading worship yesterday. Once again I realized the anointing that you all have cultivated over many years- individually and as a body. I have so much to learn from you- not only about how to bring others into the presence of God and how to find the flow of the Spirit, but also how you do this with your whole life all the time. Thank you for walking so closely with the Lord, and living in such a way that others are challenged to walk on that plane as well.   It was a privilege.   In Christ, Heather
Subject: Re: Marvin    You and the church are always on my heart. I love you all so much. I know God is up to something amazing. I hear it coming; I see the signs; I feel His presence. When it manifest it will be like a dream come true and you will flourish like a new stream. A new oil and wine is coming. A fragrant oil and a sweet wine. A shifting is happening even now. Not a shift like from an earthquake but like putting things in high gear and moving forward with the divine plans of God.   Marvin Barham, D. Min - 4/25/15

I needed to hear it today! I think I fell out of love with the ministry (or maybe I equated it with the expectations, and subsequent persecutions, of man.) Whichever... I feel very convicted, yet thankful for this answer to my dilemma.  I'm going to embrace and fall back in love with the ministry and anointing God gave us (Mike & myself.) I have been praying for God to put love back in my heart for His people.  But now as I read this, I realize that really isn't the problem. It is the ministry itself I began to resent. God forgive me!  Would you remember me in prayer regarding this? Thank you so much. God bless you, Ck Thompson
