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.
How Do You Handle Adversity?
Brandon designed this website in 2016 and purchased rights to it until 2025. We have done monthly posts to it. As noted last month, Margaret is keeping the site up but we are unable to keep the monthly pace. This month I want to share 2 Special Tributes from 2016: One to Margaret, Brandon, and Leighton that includes moving into our new home in 2003. We were so happy to have Wylie and Sabrina join our family. June 22, 2021 Margaret and I will CELEBRATE our 46th anniversary. The Second Tribute is to my Mom, Dad, my Siblings and their children—Titled “World’s Greatest Family.” I hope you will have time to listen to them. I hope you will see the impact Jesus Christ, my family, my parents, my siblings, and all those I have met along life’s pathway have had on my life in all my posted Albums.
The two devotionals I am sharing challenged me as we begin February. The first came in an email, no author given, but is a good lesson for all of us, no matter what stage of life you are in. Grandma gives her granddaughter some GREAT advice through an Object Lesson. The only problem is that as Humans we often times do not have the strength within ourselves to choose the right course to take. The second is a Testimony given two years after the Tragedies of 9/11/2001. It reveals the PERFECT SOURCE of receiving the POWER WE NEED to OVERCOME ADVERSITY—GOD, HIS SON JESUS, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
I just realized that I have lived in two different centuries. No wonder I feel old for I AM OLD??? Our HUMOR is from an email I received in the 20th Century when we could still laugh at ourselves. I am so THANKFUL I have lived to be a MEMBER OF THE 21ST Century. As a Business Teacher, we were told there would be Robotics in medicine and industry, driverless cars, drones, flights to the moon, etc etc. I thought I’d never live to see anything like that. I Never believed the United States would be considering Socialism over Capitalism.
As you listen to this album, 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 His Great Love FOR All Who WILL Accept Him.
“Through It All” points out how God is teaching His child and has His protection in every situation if they are trusting and obeying His commands. “God on the Mountain” states God is with us whether we are on the Mountain or in the Valley. “If That Isn’t Love” describes what Christ gave up to come to earth to give His life so mankind could be saved. “Heaven Came Down” is what every believer feels when they have accepted Christ as their Savior. “Salt Shaker” is what every believer becomes to the unbelievers. “Do You Know”– The answer to this question will CHANGE YOUR LIFE if you get to know Him. “What a Lovely Name” is the most BEAUTIFUL name ever given to a man. “Amazing Grace My Chains are Gone” is the testimony of millions of BELIEVERS. “I Then Shall Live”– May this become our song for all the world to see in our DIVIDED GREAT UNITED STATES IN 2021. “The King is Coming”– A promise that will be borne out in God’s own time. Margaret and I are thankful for each one of you. A Very Special Thanks to those who return each month to check out the site and for your encouragement and support.
Will close with this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson – “When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end you are the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.” If you HAVE ACCEPTED CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR, SMILING WILL BE EASY. OH, WHAT A SAVIOR!
