My Mother’s Voice

My mother has given her voice to be used or taken by the Lord. For many years He was pleased to use her voice. What a sweet sound to my ears! In recent years, it has become more difficult for her to sing. It seems it is the Lord's pleasure to take her voice and let her serve Him in other ways.

Garden of Prayer

Garden of Prayer

Had Enough? I can’t wait to see the daffodils bloom in the front yard. I won’t wound you with a picture of the huge mound of snow that has covered Jennifer’s perennial garden, but it seems like a gravestone with the epitaph of Spring. “Here lies Spring never to be seen again.” Though your memory of Spring has faded, the beautiful...

I am committed to loving my kids as long and as far as I have to. I...

It was such a warm feeling to be reminded of the experience and to realize that we had not been forgotten either. One of my children’s friends just caught on the other day...

“God Leads Us Along”

For a long time I’ve dreamed of building a house on some land in the country. A country cottage seems like just the ticket for a songwriter and arranger like myself. I could “get away from things,” I tell myself, “and get the creative juices flowing.” Then I read a hymn story in a book I’ve really come to love. In his book,...
