Resolutionary Lines: What Will Truly Change Your Life

This morning I happily finished a yearlong project.  In fact this is the fourth year (in a row) that I have managed to complete my goal.  Pretty amazing feat for this mama of four who tends to have piles of stuff that I never quite get to … I read through my Bible in a […]

Lyric Lines: Seven of Seven Songs for a Savior

This song might be a bit stark.  But as far as songs that truly capture what the first Christmas might have been about, these lyrics capture those moments.  I first heard this song as a part of Andrew Peterson’s “Behold the Lamb of God”” tour that we have attended several times.  Thankfully I brought the […]

Lyric Lines: Six of Seven Songs for a Savior

Remember I told you that I am a bit of a Christmas music junkie?  I almost made it through this December without buying a new album.  But this morning I am caving in and buying Sidewalk Prophets’ “Merry Christmas to You” album.   (And at $6.99 for the MP3 on Amazon right now, I think it […]

Lyric Lines: Five of Seven Songs for a Savior

Today the song is definitely honor of my children.  This is one of my favorite songs to listen to this time of year.  Many  years ago the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir came out with a “Happy birthday, Jesus” song.  That one is sweet and all, but I happen to like the below version even better.  This […]

Line up around the piano: “Angels We Have Heard On High” by the Piano Guys

Next week I will finish my series on “Lyric Lines for the Savior.”  Today’s post could almost count since the song is about Jesus coming.  But since there really are not any words, I decided this one should be more for fun.  My husband discovered “The Piano Guys” at a seminar he went to in […]

Lyric Lines: Four of Seven Songs for a Savior

Chris Tomlin’s Glory to God in the Highest is one of the most worshipful Christmas albums!  All of the songs point to the Savior.  But the one that is my favorite actually features another lead vocalist – Audrey Aussad.  Since we are getting a few flurries here today and tomorrow, this song, “Winter Snow” seems […]

Lyric Lines: Three of Seven Songs for a Savior

Just over a year ago, we said our earthly good byes to my Grandmother.  She had just turned 100 several months before, so she was definitely ready to go to heaven!  Now that I have said farewell to all four of my grandparents, Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Home for Christmas” means even more.  I could not […]

Lyric Lines: Two of Seven Songs for a Savior

I first heard Nicole C. Mullen’s Christmas in Black and White album at my friend’s house when I listened while watching her boys for her one December morning.  Considering the fact that they are now both in high school, I have liked that album for quite awhile.  One that I gladly added to my Christmas […]

Lyric Lines: One of Seven Songs for a Savior

So, I might be a bit of Christmas song junkie.  I love the music of the season.  This has been a busy December for me, so I have needed music with strong lyrics to remind me of just what Christmas is all about.  So, I thought for the next seven blog posts, I would share […]

Lyric Lines: I will Find a Way by Andy Gullahorn

I  have been a bit silent on this blog after Thanksgiving.  I think maybe that is okay – I have been living the Advent instead of writing about it.  (And maybe writing a bit too much on my other blog, but … )  Anyway, when I was making dinner, I was listening to one of […]
