Pieces of Music

Do you listen to music?  For years I preferred talk radio, and I still do — but have now got hooked on Pandora, I can customize my selections right down to the specific group/band. It’s helped me explore Christian music.  I must say – that there is some good stuff out there!  AND I just discovered a Christmas Music station!  I can listen to it any time of year (I love Christmas music)!!!  🙂

Judges 5:11  The village musicians Gather at the village well To sing of the triumphs of the Lord. Again and again they sing the ballad Of how the Lord saved Israel With an army of peasants! The people of the Lord Marched through the gates!
Psalm 71:22 I will praise you with music, telling of your faithfulness to all your promises, O Holy One of Israel.
May you find music to fill your soul.  A special shoutout to friends Mary Beth and Martin who bring music to the community of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Hudson, WI

Thanksgiving Pieces

In the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving on November 26th.  It is a day to gather friends and family together, share a meal, watch football, go to a movie, nap.

But like many major holidays, oftentimes the true reason for the season is forgotten underneath the pretty packages, music, traditions and favorite foods.

It should not be remembered as the day before the biggest shopping day, or the day of endless eating, but instead – gathering together as the pilgrims did once, after landing here — in their new home.

Psalm 100:4 Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving; enter his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name.

Psalm 7:17 Oh, how grateful and thankful I am to the Lord because he is so good. I will sing praise to the name of the Lord who is above all lords.
What are you grateful for?
I am thankful to have a Heavenly Father who knows me, I am grateful for my family, friends, and those I do not know – I pray for all.  I am grateful for the technology that helps keep me alive (pacemaker), and my sweet dog Max!

Pieces of Bible Sunday

Until today, I had never heard of “Bible Sunday.”  I probably would have went the remainder of my life not knowing what it was, except I looked at my wall calendar to see the date of Thanksgiving, and “Bible Sunday” caught my eye; which is November 22nd.  Of course I had to google this phrase and have posted a link for your further reading.

(Curious who knew this was an actual celebrated holiday?), but I digress!

Revised Pieces

Wouldn’t it be nice to have the option of a “do over”?  Or to revise our day just every now and then?  I’d sure like that.  Especially to take back something stupid or hurtful I said.  We are blessed to have a loving Father who forgives our stupidity so we can move on much faster, but the words we’ve said, the harm we’ve caused to others can not be so easily undone.  This is where a revision would be handy!!

Speaking of which; “The Pieces” book has been revised and is ready on Amazon on either paperback or Kindle.

I appreciate everyone who reads the book and this blog, it’s all God.  24/7/365, His words, I am merely the messenger!

2 Samuel 22:31  As for God, his way is perfect; The word of the Lord is true. He shields all who hide behind him.
Acts 1:1-2  Dear friend who loves God: In my first letter I told you about Jesus’ life and teachings and how he returned to heaven after giving his chosen apostles further instructions from the Holy Spirit.
