On a sunny, yet breezy Sunday afternoon, just two days before the 2009 presidential inauguration, during a televised basketball game, Hayley Masters stepped out onto mid-court of ULM’s Fant-Ewing Colesium to sing the national anthem. The ULM’s women’s basketball team and their opponents, along with the crowd gathered for the university’s Fellowship and Friendship Day, patriotically stood as the American flag waved from the rafters, and folks once again pledged to “let freedom ring…” At the conclusion of “The Star Spangled Banner”, the audience cheered, and Hayley was greeted by ULM President James Cofer and his wife. What a way to begin a most historical week!
The new year 2009 rolled in like a tidal wave at New Year’s Revolution sponsored by SLAM of the Pentecostals of the Twin Cities. And most appropriately, Hayley Masters was singing her way into 2009 along with her band playing “For Your Glory”…and this continues to be her lyrical message for the NEW YEAR.
This Revolution was tops as the Hayley Masters Band, Josh Thornhill’s band, and Fire and Salem ushered in the presence of Jehovah God and worshipped Jesus Christ into the wee hours of January 1, 2009. What an incredible awesome night of giving it all to our Lord and Saviour!

Whoo! Another year down! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL New Year!! Mine was fantastic! Between the concert on New Years Eve, and the fireworks show New Years Night, I couldn’t have asked for a better New Years holiday.
I love every chance I get to embark upon a new year. Not only is it a chance to encounter new challenges and adventures, it’s also a time representing new beginnings. The old year…the old you, it’s all in the past and it’s time to start over. I hope to never take advantage of that. And if perhaps one day I might, I am so thankful that we serve a God of second chances. A God who will pick us up and dust us off no matter how many times we mess up, and no matter what time of year…month…week…or day! He’s always there, and I certainly think that is one thing we should all be grateful for!
