2017 Song Two (Seven Songs for My Savior): Just a Girl

Every year, I have fun picking out one new Christmas album.  This year my choice was Brandon Heath’s “Christmas is Here.”  Featuring a fun mix of both traditional and new songs, this is one worth owning.  His song, “Just a Girl” definitely presents a unique perspective. I am certain that Mary, the mother of Jesus, […]

Seven Songs for My Savior: Song Six: “No Eye Had Seen” by Michael W. Smith & Amy Grant

Michael W. Smith’s “Christmas” might have been one of the very first cd’s that I owned.    Since then he has created several albums, but I think his first one will always be one of my very favorites.  I think because the album seems to flow together naturally from one song to the next. Song number […]

Seven Songs for a Savior 2016: Song One “Because It’s Christmas” by the Sidewalk Prophets

Evidently the fact that I have not posted on this site for three months is possibly an indicator that I have had a busy fall.  Taking pictures and writing words for a book will do that.  Especially when added to an already busy life. Now that I am on to the writing process itself, I […]

Christmas Lyric Lines Vol. 3: Song Four for my Savior: “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” by Bryan Duncan

Last week, I talked about the fact that one of my favorite parts of the Christmas story is the fact that Jesus is Immanuel, God with us.  Not too surprisingly, one of my favorite Christmas hymns is “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.”  Since the song is in a minor key (at least I think it is – help […]

Christmas Lyric Lines Volume 3: Song Three for My Savior: “Breath of Heaven”

As I mentioned in my previous post,  yesterday we took a “road trip” down to Kansas to watch our oldest play basketball.  In our comfortable minivan with the heated seats, radio, snacks and fuel to be able to drive for quite awhile without stopping.  While some time was involved, we basically could make it to […]

Lyric Lines Vol. 2: Seven of Seven Songs for my Savior

Most of my album choice are somewhat methodical.  The Relient K “Let It Snow, Let It Reindeer” was an impulse purchase several years ago.  The album is as fun as it sounds.  Yet while several of the songs make me smile, this one made me cry. The main time that I get to listen to […]

Lyric Lines Vol. 2: Five of Seven Songs for my Savior

Last week I shared a TobyMac song featuring Owl City.  Only seems fitting today to share an Owl City song with TobyMac as the supporting cast.  This song is a new one to me this year and was a fun one to add to the I-pod. Made for the Veggie Tales Christmas video, Larry and […]

Lyric Lines Vol. 2: One of Seven Songs for my Savior

Yesterday I posted my thoughts on “Christmas Wouldn’t Be Christmas Without …”  Come to think of it, I forgot an important one, but I guess that makes a great segue into today.  The music. I do LOVE Christmas music  In fact I currently have 653 Christmas songs on my I-pod.  Unlike some folks, I only […]

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 […]
