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 my Savior: Song Five: “Nations that Long in Darkness Walked” by Jill Phillips & Andy Gullahorn

Hymns of faith are gradually being lost in perpetuity.  (Sorry for the big word.  When else can I use that? 🙂  )  Anyway, I do like worship songs.  But there is something to be said about the classic songs faith. That is why I always appreciate when artists bring new life to the old songs.  […]

With all of the craziness that seems to continue to happen in this world, there can be no doubt that we are all in need of a Savior.  But we certainly do not deserve one, as we continue to make mess after mess.  I am so grateful that God did leave the perfect place to […]

Last night, our two little nieces and nephews came over to “play.”  Adding four kids three and under to an already active household certainly made for a lively evening.  Thankfully my husband was home as well as our kids.  All of us kept pretty busy with two toddlers, a brand new walker who is into everything […]

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: Three of Seven Songs for my Savior

Sometimes a song just gets stuck in your head.  This song is mine from today.  I woke up with the song resonating in my heart.  In trying to discover the name of the tune, I found a great Christmas album.  Josh Wilson’s album “Noel” was just added to our I-Tunes.  What can I say?  Christmas […]

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 […]
