Crescendo of PRAISES is a book of poetry and reflections of God that epitomize who He is in my heart and who He can be in the hearts of others and to any hungry soul. Taste and see that the Lord is good, merciful, gracious, loving, sovereign, great, endless, and boundless.
God our Creator is forever portraying glory through and by His Son Jesus Christ and through us by His Spirit. The ultimate objective is to conform us into the image of His dear Son, into His very own likeness (Imago Dei – the image of God.) Thus conforming us into the image (a portrait) of Jesus Christ. God is painting a portrait of glory through life. Life is the canvas that He paints through. The sky, clouds, sun, moon, stars, trees, flowers, birds and all of the wonders of the world are the works of the Creator’s hand.
MABEL ELIZABETH HENRY was born in Brooklyn, New York, where she resided until November 1988. She relocated to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where she is currently living. The love of God is her theme for life and has been from the day she received Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord. Mabel is elated for this vast opportunity to be able to communicate what God truly mean to her through creative writing. Her aspirations are to edify and encourage all people through this poetic endeavor. In addition to writing poetry, Mabel has composed songs for an album in which she sang with the group called Chrisma. The name Chrisma is taken from the Greek and means “the endowment or anointing of the Holy Spirit.” Her reliance is absolutely on the anointing and enrichment which she believes only the Holy Spirit can inspire to share with the world by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
