A New Song

The kids and I are working on a new CD – “A Family That Praise Together”.  We haven’t gotten too far into the album, but we DID get one song down!  It drove Deana a little crazy as the kids were singing “do do’s” all week!  But it was awesome fun!

The song is “Jesus is Just Alright”, a cover of the classic Doobie Brothers song.  While I am NOT the guitar player they were, it was fun recording with the kids.  Josh, Zack, and Sophia make up the vocals.  Check it out here.

Pity Party on Gina’s Blog

So, you’ve been warned – this will be a pathetic, self-indulgent post.  Run before it’s too late!

First of all, if my 2.78 readers wouldn’t mind praying for a friend of mine named Carolyn H.; she is having surgery on Monday 11/2.  She and I appreciate your thoughts!

Secondly, work continues to get worse every……single……moment!  I will not get into the details here because, well, I live them most of the time!  But it seems as though the owner’s nine lives may finally be up.  He has definitely manifested some really amazing life savers to date, but his magic seems to be running out…….or at least put off the inevitable……which appears to be crashing into the present with a huge and unfailing force.  While there is a huge part of me that is freaking out to be out of a job, I would be lying if I said “the end” would also offer long awaited relief!

Health wise I have had a few struggles lately.  While I don’t feel comfortable sharing the details in this venue, they HAVE caused me some tough spots.  These spots have varied from concern to inconvenience to down right freaking me out.  So, if you have a spot on your prayer list (if you are one that has such as thing) I would also appreciate a shout out on my behalf as well.  If not, your positive thoughts will be accepted!  🙂

And on a random note, I am disappointed in myself in that I am constantly surprised by how very self-centered so many people have become!  I mean, at my age, I should be much more jaded or at least conditioned to realize that this is a common piece of society today.  Yet, I expect people to be considerate, understanding, and even POLITE.  Sheesh, what do I even know?!?!?!!?!  I forgot that today most look out “for number one” and that’s about it.  Maybe I am that way, too, come to think of it!

And I realized tonight, perhaps though it is not constant, that it would be amazingly wonderful to spend one evening without the TV blaring, without everything centering around the kids, and maybe allowing the working adult who drives 70+ miles a day to have some peace and quiet for maybe an hour.  That would be heaven on earth.  And that is the springboard of the pity party…….

Gina out.

Sunday Song – Breaking the Rules Again

Okay, I usually put worship songs up on Sundays. And I guess this COULD be argued as one, but really I am putting it up because it’s practically my favorite song right now and it’s been going through my head and……yeah. It is:

1 2 3 4 by the Plain White T’s. I do not have this song on my iPod YET – will be buying it today. Maybe I am even dedicating it to someone. LOL

Sunday Song – Hallelujah (Your Love is Amazing)

By Phillips, Craig and Dean.  Love this song and loved it on the drums too.  😛

Your love is amazing

Steady and unchanging

Your love is a mountain

Firm beneath my feet

Your love is a mystery

How You gently life me

When I am surrounded

Your love carries me

Your love is surprising

I can feel it rising

All the joy that’s growing

Deep inside of me

And every time I see you

All your goodness shines through

And I can feel this God song rising up in me

CHORUS

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Your love makes me sing

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Your love makes me sing

Your love is surprising

I can feel it rising

All the joy that’s growing

Deep inside of me

And every time I see you

All your goodness shines through

And I can feel this God song rising up in me
