1. I wonder as I wander out under the sky, How Jesus the Savior did come for to die. For poor on’ry people like you and like I… I wonder as I wander out under the sky. 2. When Mary birthed Jesus ’twas in a cow’s stall, With wise men and farmers and shepherds and […]

no turning back

I have always loved hymns, and in particular, learning the stories behind how they were written.  The story behind I Have Decided to Follow Jesus is one that I found particularly moving… “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus” is a Christian hymn originating from India.

Daddy’s Silly Songs…and a song about them

Tomorrow is my oldest daughter’s 11th birthday!  What a wonderful blessing she is!  Sweet as pie, eyes as blue as the sky, loving, and kind… she’s a beauty inside and out! She is quickly leaving behind the little girl things like dress-up and playing with dolls… but just the other day, she warmed my heart […]
