Saturday Song: Road Trip Music

This week was Spring Break, which involved a 20-hour road trip (which was absolutely worth every minute of the drive!).  Anyway, all that to say that I listened to a lot of music this week. So, I actually have two songs for this Saturday Song post… Read More

Saturday Song (a day late): God of My Days

I was having so much fun baking, cleaning, and doing laundry with the windows open yesterday that I forgot to post Saturday’s song!  It’s just as well, I think, because I just heard this song, God of My Days, tonight… Read More

Decoupaging and the Ministry of Music

This is why the great pianist always plays with so much emotion the piece that holy memories have cause him to name “The Last Hope” and why, in replying to his fair questioner he called it his “Evening Prayer”…Read More

Saturday Song: Abide with Me

Henry F. Lyte, the man who wrote this hymn faithfully led a small church for over 20 years when his failing health forced him to take an early retirement.  September 4, 1847 marked his last sermon to his congregation.  During his sermon, Lyte is reported to have said his desire was to “induce you to prepare for the solemn hour which must come to all by a timely appreciation and dependence on the death of Christ.” … Read More

Saturday Song: Grace by Laura Story

This song is one of my all-time favorites.  It is powerful to me on two fronts.  First it echoes the promises found in the Bible concerning God’s generosity with His grace.  There is never a time that a child of His has come asking for it that He has not freely given it… Read More

Saturday Song: Praise the Father, Praise the Son

Spurgeon’s sermons are some of my favorite things to read (I read them mostly from this site: The Spurgeon Archive).  This morning, I read his sermon “Thy Redeemer” based on Isaiah 41:14.  Later, as I was doing laundry, Chis Tomlin’s Praise the Father, Praise the Son came on my Pandora station.  These both united for a wonderful reinforcement of the wonderful beauty and greatness of the Triune God — The Three in One… Read More

Saturday Song: The Word is Alive

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart… Read More

What wonderful love that God would step down in time.  The eternal God to a temporal world.  The Holy One to a dirty and vile people.  Love to the loveless.  So that we could be called children and friends of God… Read More
