Since my surgery in January 2015 and Margaret’s surgery in June 2015 brought about some physical adjustments in our life style, we have been praying the Lord would open up a door of service that we could work on from home. We believe this website is an answer to that prayer.
For the past few years, we have made “AMATEUR” CDs for our family in Statesville, shut-ins, and a few other people as a way of sharing God’s love and our love with them.
We have been blessed to have a special friend with a God given musical gift who plays piano for us in addition to using purchased karaoke and accompaniment CDs.
As you listen to these CDs, we hope you will overlook all of our mistakes and hear only the message of each song and devotional. Our only goal is to praise the Lord and tell others about Him.
Peace In The Storms Of Life
Due to some circumstances in my life, I am having to use a different format for this album. Because so many of us have lost loved ones during this time, I am including songs of encouragement & comfort that I hope will be a blessing to you.
In this album we pay SPECIAL TRIBUTE to those who have gone to their reward.
For those that were called much too early, leaving a vacant chair at our gatherings and questions in our minds asking, “Why did you call them so soon Lord?”. – Peace and assurance came to our hearts as our faith and family saw us through. Each had their own unique personality, gifts, and contributions they made to our lives. Today we honor each one of them for the influence that continues to live in our memories and in our lives through the lessons they taught us.
We pray that as you listen to this album it will bring back many PRECIOUS MEMORIES.
I am renaming “I Am Fine For The Shape I Am In” as the reality of growing old instead of calling it Humor. It describes growing old to a tee, so listen carefully to what you have to look forward to when you get older.
I am including “Don’t Worry About Me” by Marty Robbins in this album because it was so special to me during a stressful time in my life. I used “Don’t Worry” with friends and family on March 3, 1961 as I left Charlotte for Lackland Airforce Base as an insecure 21-year-old beginning 6 years of service as opposed to 2 years if I had waited for the draft. Again, on December 26, 1961, when leaving for 15 months in Turkey, I looked out of the window of the airplane and saw my aging parents standing there and wondered if they would still be there when I returned. I am thankful to say they were.
As we start our journeys in life, Satan comes immediately and tries to make us doubt our decisions, just as many people questioned my decision to enlist for 6 years rather than wait to be drafted for 2 years. God gave me the assurance that I had made the right decision and was following His will. He was with me throughout all that time, making it a very good experience for me.
When the raging storms hit us in our lives, Christ will meet our needs if we have faith in Him. Listen to the words in the songs on this album for comfort during difficult times. The photo with this album reminds us that “God sends rays of sunshine to break through the storm clouds in our lives” if we put our faith and trust in Him.
I am closing with a poem about God’s Heavenly Promises found on the internet.
We pray that you will have God’s peace & comfort during all the storms you face.
