"Daddy's Hands"

 "Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear Him."
Psalm 103:13

I mentioned in my last post that I worked on a song video recently that brought back a tsunami of memories and I promised to share about it soon. So, here goes.

Kneel at the Cross

 "The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him."
Psalm 28:7

When Kevin and I first started getting to know one another, one of the things I was most pleasantly surprised by was our mutual deep love for bluegrass music. I mean even in 1987, it was a rarity to find a young person anywhere who even knew what true bluegrass was, let alone someone who loved it as much as I did. 

I'll never forget the day we were chatting, and how shocked I was

A Graduation, A Special Birthday, A Miracle, & Three Songs


"The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it."
Proverbs 10:22

So many blessings to thank God for today!

A Graduation

Just a few days ago, our dear boy, Zach, graduated with his two-year degree from Bible College! We are beyond proud of him and the way He loves Jesus and has a desire to spend his life serving Him. I don't mean to brag by what I am about to say, but I say it to bring glory to God—

Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer

 "Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you."
James 4:8

Through the years, I have found so much encouragement in listening to the music of Keith and Kristyn Getty. One of my favorite songs they sing and Keith co-wrote is "Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer." I remember when the Lord brought it across my path several years ago and the measure of comfort the lyrics brought to me—then and each time I have heard it since.

Coffee Giveaway!

"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's." Psalm 103:1,5 

On March 21, 2022, I published this post, explaining how I have said goodbye and good riddance to mainstream media and other sources of negativity, and in that post, I also included a few YouTube channels with which I have replaced them. One of my favorites on that list is The Mennonite Mom. I really appreciate Jeannine and her family, and each time I watch her videos, I am comforted in knowing there are still godly families who dress modestly and raise their children in the fear of the Lord. Watching Jeannine reminds me that there is still normalcy in this upside-down world, and I always feel edified, encouraged, and refreshed in spirit as I leave her channel. Kevin and Zach even watch her videos with me from time to time

So, recently when Jeannine and her husband, Nolan, launched their own coffee business called Mama Java, I knew I wanted to support them in every way I could. One of the ways Kevin, Zach, and I want to do that is by introducing you to their brand and offering a giveaway! But, it gets even better!

I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

 "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
Matthew 6:34

The longer I walk hand in hand with Jesus, the more I love Him and the more tender my heart grows toward Him. To be honest, I can hardly hear the mention of His name these days without tears coming to my eyes. He just means the world to me. 

And the more He means to me, the more I crave to read and absorb the red letters in my Bible. Knowing that we have HIS words written down, available for us to pick up and read any time we wish, is an immeasurable blessing.
