Like most of you, my life is full of challenges. Perhaps you also live with family members who choose to see everything as dark and angry? Take heart, you do not have to follow suit. There is another option and it will bless you!
Those who wish to sing, always find a song. -Swedish proverb –

Here’s a song to put things into perspective . . .
We sure are going through stuff, guys, but if He, our Lord is with us, we truly are going THROUGH it and not stuck in it. How awesome is that? He never lets go . . click it and sing it!

Someone very dear to me just shared the words to a song that has been on his mind and heart a lot recently. I had to look it up (love YouTube) and it is so wonderful. I thought first of this special man who, in giving to the Lord, has changed my life. My next thought was all of you. All I can say is “thank you.” Click the link http://youtu.be/AWAv4qs_YnQ and hear THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO THE LORD by RAY BOLTZ with lyrics
Love you all!

Lee Greenwood and this amazing song “Proud to be an American” is high on my list of songs for any time of the year, but especially right now with the 4th of July approaching and so many friends – some of whom I’ve never met but still appreciate – overseas serving in our military right now. Play this song and sing with me! Sing to them and with them!
Thanks for serving, everyone! God bless you all!

I called a friend not long ago and a man’s voice answered the phone. I realized at that moment that I had no idea if it was her husband or her teenaged son. His voice had changed!
I am thinking of this now as I am in my studio working on a quilt project. The part of the project I am doing is simple yet time-consuming and was not my favorite and thus much avoided, however I learned something a while back. During this mindless but long step in the process, I can do the work and let my thoughts and my heart drift from my fabric to my Lord.
Suddenly, the dreaded part of the work, still something I don’t care for, passes much more pleasantly for me. This morning as I work I have the doors to the deck open and my room is “noisy” with sound . . . and this is the reason I am reminded of my friend’s son and his voice change. You see, the Lord’s voice changes also. Sometimes I can hear His voice like a man standing in the room with me. Sometimes my spirit hears what my human ears cannot, sometimes I hear His voice in a delicate coo from a baby, and today His voice is the sweetest music to my ears for the loud noise I mentioned? It is the many birds outside my room in the trees in and surrounding my yard. They are feeling His love and sharing it with me and His voice has touched my heart through them!

For the last several days, as I awakened in the morning it was not to immediately enjoy the singing of birds outside my window which typically will always fill me with the Love of my Father God for I know how much He loves every feather on each one of them and every hair on my head.
No, this has not been the way I’ve awakened this past few days. I have, however been reminded of the Love of God in my waking. You see, I’ve had bad dreams and dark thoughts awaken me and at an early hour when I should be still asleep. I awaken shaking from the dream and disturbed by something that in my half awakened state is not immediately identified.
Each morning I have immediately taken it to God in prayer and each morning, after a period of prayer my soul finds joy and rest in His love. I was just reading from Paul’s letters and found this passage which tells us all we need to hear and quite powerfully:
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 KJV
A song to bring a smile to your face, and to set your heart and soul to dancing! http://youtu.be/IoezWBPGRAc Your Love Never Fails -Chris Quilala / Jesus Culture
