Amazing Grace on the Black Keys!

Please watch this entire clip. If this doesn’t ring your bell, your clapper is broken.  It’s one of the most amazing performances I have had the privilege to witness.  When you hear Wintley tell the history of the song Amazing Grace you will never listen to it the same way again.

When an artist performs and lives with genuine integrity and heart, the power of the music is multiplied. When the origin of the music and lyrics comes from the same genuine heartfelt source, the power is multiplied again.

Wintley Phipps is a first class musician and human being. His smile is a testament to his faith. I once accidentally introduced him by saying, “Please welcome to the stage, Whitney Houston.”   He didn’t even flinch.

This is my gift to you today.  Let me know what you think.

Why I Don’t Have a Cat!

Good morning friends. It’s Lighten Up Monday!   I have been criticized all my life because I am not fond of cats. Here are the reasons why.  I think you will enjoy this clip but I know I am going to hear from some cat lovers.

“To a dog you are family.  To a cat you are staff!

Bring it on cat lovers.  Tell my why you love your cat!
If Cat’s don’t scratch your itch, I want to hear from you as well.

Does Jesus Bite?

Hey! WAKE UP! It’s Lighten up Monday!

My daughter was about three when she tottered up to me, removed the pacifier from her mouth, and asked, “Does Jesus bite?”  Wow!  I know a lot of adults who are still asking that question. 

I pulled her up on my lap and told her that Jesus NEVER bites.  Sometimes the people who follow him bite, but he is always faithful and will never bite you or leave you.  Satisfied, she popped the pacifier back in her mouth and waddled away.

I was reminded of that childhood conversation when I heard this story…

In sixty years of life I have wandered down many paths, experienced terrifying lows and exhilarating highs.  I don’t have all the answers, but I can tell you this, “Jesus doesn’t bite.”  No one can “sic” Jesus on you, but you can call him and find out for yourself (Rom 8:31-39).

As always, I’d love to hear your comments.
