About Me

About This Blog

Songs mean a lot to me. In this Blog I am sharing songs that have specific meaning to me. My tastes are varied but lean particularly to Country.

The lyrics of a song have meaning to the writer. I know a song can be popular for the tune and beat. It is when the words find a connection with the heart and find a common experience in the life of the listener the song becomes a classic.

Here you will learn more about what makes me tick than you probably want to know. I also hope it gives you some pause for reflection too on joys, sorrows, successes and struggles we all face.

I'll give you the song title, album I found it on, and the lyrics. You can decide whether you want to download it from your favorite music site.

Find A Place To Hold On

Just a quick note to say that on Sundays I will take the opportunity to post about hymns, songs of faith and christian songs.

It is hard to get my pea-sized brain around the concept of time and eternity. The fact that God has always been causes the word, "TILT" to appear on my forehead. This, I guess, is where faith kicks in.

God not only has been and will be around forever, he has been working about a plan to have me with him. And no matter how much I mess up that relationship he is devising a plan to fix it.

God is seeking a way to protect me. The one who created time and has been around for every tick wants me with him. I should not question his plan. I have nothing to bring. I should just just find a place to grab a hold and cling. He'll take it from there.

This a a great version of this hymn
Song: Rock of Ages
Artist: Amy Grant (with Vince Gill)
Album: Rock of Ages...Hymns and Faith

"Rock of Ages", was written by a guy named Toplady in 1776. He got the idea and penned some of the lyrics while crouching in a cleft in a limestone cliff where he had taken shelter from a violent thunderstorm.
