Last night, we were out in the barn sitting by the fire with our friends Jason and Jenny. I had already been trying to decide what songs to do for today’s song share, so when the subject turned to music (as it almost always does), I asked Jason if he wanted to pick today’s songs.… Continue reading Song Share Saturday #22
I know. I’m behind. I still owe y’all the conclusion on 1 John, and Daniel and I also have started on Hebrews for our Tuesday morning studies. I missed a couple of Song Share Saturdays. And I still haven’t posted our vacation photos (sorry, mom). BUT We played for the first time on stage as… Continue reading Camp and Jam!
Today is Audrey’s birthday! So I decided to let her pick the songs for today’s song share. Her favorite is “As the Deer”, which you can find here, since she had already picked it another time. So I asked her to pick two different ones to try to come up with a couple we haven’t… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #21
My friend Daniel and I have been going through 1 John the past few weeks. I’ve made posts on what we have studied so far, and they have links back to what Daniel has posted as well. A couple of songs have been in my mind since we’ve been going through those passages, and if… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #20
I’ve never been a bluegrass fan. I was always immensely impressed by the pickers’ skill on their instruments, because buddy, that takes talent and practice. But it was the singing. Just not my style, not what I enjoyed. Then my children decided they wanted to take music lessons and learn to play…..the banjo. The fiddle.… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #19
Got a text from my good buddy Jason yesterday out of nowhere saying, “Got you an old hymn for tomorrow.” So, here you go, Jason. A beautiful old hymn about how God is with us no matter what, always taking care of us. And since I was already using one friend’s suggestion, I figured both… Continue reading Song Share Saturday #18
When Jason sent me the song list for this past Sunday, I glanced over it and was glad to see that I recognized all of them and didn’t have to work on learning anything new (because the past few weeks have been WHEW!) So, I thought I was 1000% prepared when I arrived for praise… Continue reading Send the Light
We’ve been having small groups throughout the summer on discipleship. So when I saw this image come across my social media… …I thought it would be good to share songs about leading others to Jesus. The lighthouse image there brought to mind a song we sang often when I was growing up, “Let the Lower… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #17
Fun post today! My brain was apparently in a Beatles mood a couple of days ago and I wrote not just one but TWO parodies to “Let It Be”. My hair has been it’s own mood for the past 2 days, so since we were already being extra, I thought I would record one of… Continue reading Let Them Sleep
Today’s songs are about how we need God and we can’t do anything on our own. We cry out Him to give us faith and lead us in His paths. We are weak, but we can be strong in Him. When we don’t feel like we can stand, He helps us. Everything we do is… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #16
Today’s Saturday Song Share is a guest post! My friend Tenia sends me songs sometimes throughout the week, and I asked her if she would be willing to pick a couple for today and share a little. If you haven’t heard her story yet, you can find it here, where she talks about her struggles… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #15
One of these songs I’ve had in my head all week, and one I literally just picked out 30 seconds ago. Because that’s how my brain works, ha! Do you ever feel like your flame is just flickering? Like, it hasn’t gone out, but it’s just tired looking and needs fuel? You call out to… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #14
Sorry I missed last week, y’all! The past couple of weeks have been busy ones! Today I just wanted to share a couple of songs that I like to sing along with at the top of my lungs that make me smile and make my heart happy.
First official barn night of summer 2023 is in the books! I love barn nights. Food, fun, and fellowship. Mischief, music, and memories. ATVs, acapella singing, and animals. Kids, campfires, ….ok, ok, I’ll stop with the alliteration now. (I love it almost as much as barn night – maybe.) Last night we had blackberry picking… Continue reading Barn Night
In the spirit of Father’s Day being tomorrow, I thought I would pick songs about God the Father. (Yes, Daniel and Jason, I went there! 😆)
I started a devotional on YouVersion with a group of ladies this past week called, “Don’t Look Back”, about the instructions given to Lot’s wife in Genesis 19. God doesn’t want us to look back at our past, at whatever sins or failures or heartache is behind us. He wants us to stay focused on… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #11
This week’s song shares are brought to you by the name of Jesus. This one we are singing at our congregational gathering tomorrow, and happens to be one of my favorites, so once I saw it on the song list, it got stuck in my head and I’ve been singing it the past 4 days.… Continue reading Song Share Saturday #10
Yesterday’s communion thought was:1 Corinthians 11:26 – “For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death [and Resurrection] until He comes.”How does communion help you think about the Creation and Kingdom to come? When God created the earth, He took a void of darkness and chaos and turned it… Continue reading Creation and Kingdom
There is no rhyme or reason for today’s song picks. I just scrolled down my playlist and picked the first two that felt right. Hope you enjoy them!
We don’t always know what it is we need at any given moment. But God does. He knows what we need and all we have to do is trust in Him.
Y’all, this has been a week. One of those busy, soul draining, peace stealing, “Is it Friday yet?” kinda weeks. Ironically (or providentially), the theme of tomorrow’s sermon is “A Real Rest”. And the songs we are singing will follow suit. (Being besties with the preacher and the worship leader has it’s advantages 😉) So… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #7
Back in 2021 I wrote a song parody to Travis Tritt’s “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive” (Which you can find here if you’ve never heard it.) I thought it would be fun to share as a “fun post” Maybe I’ll even record it one day to share. 😉 I got food splattered in… Continue reading I’m Just Out Here Trying To Survive
For today’s song share, I asked the girls to pick a couple of songs out for me. Audrey picked “As the Deer”. She said it is her favorite song in the whole wide world. She has this thing for songs in minor keys. 😏 Esther chose “Shout Hallelujah”. It is one of her favorites. I’m… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #6
I was sitting here enjoying the sunshine trying to decide what to use for today’s song share. Praying over what is on my heart and also what might help others. My friend Daniel wrote a blog post this morning about spending intentional time with God on his hiking trips. I, too, like to spend time… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #5
I’ve had several people on my mind who have been/are fighting various battles, whether they are sin-related, illness/injury related, or just life-in-general related. So the songs that have been on my mind this week are kind of reflecting that. The one I have literally woken up singing in my brain every morning this week is… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #4
With Easter right on top of us, I wanted to share two of my favorite songs to listen to concerning the resurrection. The give me chills and tears every time I listen to them. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
I never think about posting on Saturdays, so a cool “Saturday Song Share” series will probably never be a thing. I’m too sporadic and off-the-cuff. 😉 But here are a couple more songs that have been speaking to me this past week or so. “House of the Lord” is just a good praise song, reminding… Continue reading Non-Saturday Song Share
I have several ideas cooking for future blog posts, but I have several songs that are in my playlist that I’ve really been resonating with lately and thought I would share a couple of them with you. “The Master’s Touch” not only has one of my life verses, 2 Timothy 1:7, but also a really… Continue reading Saturday Song Share
After I posted the camping poem this morning, I remembered that I had recorded it. So here it is for your entertainment (and possibly my embarrassment – but what’s a little embarrassment when it comes to making the people smile? 🤷🏼♀️)
Here’s a fun little poem I wrote camping a couple of years ago. Sitting at the campground Birds and squirrels all on the ground Not many people to be found Everyone’s still sleeping sound Sipping on my coffee Breeze blowing through the trees Birds singing a melody The lake view right in front of me… Continue reading Camping
When it feels like I’m losing every friend I’ve got When I don’t know who I am, and who I’m not When I start to let the world’s cares push me down When it seems that no one else wants me around There you are. When my chest feels tight and I can barely breathe… Continue reading There You Are
So, it’s official. Today, I have been married to my sweet husband as many years as I hadn’t been. Today is our 19th wedding anniversary. He’s not one for big sappy posts or whatever, but I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I love this man. I am pretty sure… Continue reading 19 and Counting
I want my roots to be in Jesus. To be full of Him and to follow His footsteps. To follow His path and grow in Him and to be more like Him. I want my roots to be so deep in Him, so tangled in Him, that the fruit I bear can’t help but show… Continue reading Where I’m Rooted
