Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Start at the Beginning


This week holds three birthdays in our household, two basketball games, return to school schedule and a new year.  Could you load anymore in one week?

January the beginning of the year.  Genesis the beginning of His Story.  My Bible at my side, the music I sing to lift my spirit to His throne room playing, the empty calendar to be filled by His design - beginning.

As in the past I have shared music that has reached past my flesh to my spirit.  There are times to just dance around with fun music and then times to stop and allow God to speak through His composers.

My daughter-in-law shared with me this Christmas season the music inspired by The Story written by Max Lucado.  Today I want to share the site that tells about this inspiring work.  For some this genre of music may not be your style...but the words still speak truth.  This video only presents the music and the words.

http://www.thestorycd.com/ - this link supplies information on this CD.

I share one of my favorites from this CD...I hope you have time to be inspired and remember that from the Beginning He had a Plan for each of us.  Look what He sees..."I see a star, He sees a galaxy....Who but You would dream your dream in me?

Thank you for sharing about The Story, I haven't heard of it. I especially like the song you posted because we are studying the book of Genesis and are in the chapters about Abraham now.

Happy New Year and like the new look of your blog.

Happy New Year Dear Friend. I pray that 2012 is filled with blessings for you and your family. I love "The Story" our choir has done some of these pieces.
Hope you had a blessed New Years, we were at home and quiet-even went to bed before 12, I was worn out. I love your new blog header-really nice.
When things settle down a bit give me a shout and I want to plan a time to get together.
Hugs-
Jill

Blessings to you this New Year! I loved this post and after watching the dvd, I will have to check out the music. You sound like I do about praise & worship music-love it because it so expresses my heart to the Lord. Thank you for sharing His life here. I hope your week goes easily-you've got lots of your plate. I love your new header too.
Hugs, Noreen

Music plays a big part of my worship and I'm open to hearing new things. I was not familiar with this, thanks for the suggestion. Here's to the beginning of things great and small in 2012, cheers!

Debbie said...

That was beautiful, and just what the Good Physician ordered this morning!

I want to read more about that CD.

(And I meant to mention in the last post that I love your new banner/look. Who is that gorgeous young chick in the upper right hand corner?)

Angel @ Finding The Inspiring said...

Awesome song! Thank you for introducing me to it. Happy New Year!

Leslie @ Farm Fresh Fun said...

Happy New Year my Texas friend! Loved catching up with your non-photoshop pics! Your family and home are clearly beautiful and bursting with love. Almost posted our northpole drink n elf hat napkins but I never seem to capture my tablescapes before little hands have changed them. ;-) What fun you've had and must be having this week too. I can well imagine your exhaustion and joy! Hope 2012 holds great happiness and a wee bit of rest for you! ;-)
