I’m home safe and sound.

I’ve had the chance to listen to the newest album, “Resting in His Grace”, by Voice of Praise, and folks, you need to get this recording! Sparkling harmonies, magnificent arrangements, excellent production–my first and second impressions are that this is a great album. Their rendition of Joshua Fit the Battle is Kingsingers-esque.

It’s a really, really impressive piece of work.

It’s a shame, really, because I remember throughout the last day or two that there were different things that I wanted to comment on, but since I didn’t write them down they are lost to me now.

Oh, here was one.

Yea for life! Yea for love!

I want to get a bumper sticker or t-shirt that says, “Life is good.” I saw that on one of the buses at the concert on Sunday. Personally, I love the testimony that projects to the world.

  1. Yeah, check out my bro’s solo on We Will Stand. I’m very proud of him.

  3. I got a little taste of the behind-the-scenes of that recording. Jon seemed rather dispariging about the whole thing. They had a lot of trouble in several areas. To you, Crystal, how about my cuz’s solo on The Sands of Time are Sinking? Huh?

  5. This is funny! I was just in your website and I saw something that said “Troyers’ Stitches”. I thought maybe Tom started blogging.

    Oh Tommy, maybe you SHOULD start. And really “Troyer’s Stitches” might not be so bad. It could be either centered on comedy or a place to mend a broken heart. You start it, I promise to be your number one fan.

    But, come to think of it, you might put your friend out of a job….after all, could he even begin to compete?

    Ladies and Gentleman, who shall it be? By or Tom?

    Post votes now.

  6. Sorry if this sounds like a cop-out, but I’ll read both of them. 🙂

    I too was quite impressed with Voice of Praise’s new recording. Great job, guys! Sorry we missed you this weekend, Josh, it would’ve been good to see you and Kim again.

  7. Hey Ag, that choice is a hard one. I don’t have much time and would probably end up reading them both but reading only — no commenting.

  9. Ha ha!

    I’d love to have a blog, but I just don’t think I could spare the time and emotional energy it would take. Thank you for all your kind comments though.

    I am churning it over in my mind, someday I’m going to make a cooking web site. It will be half comedy and half serious. I’ve already done a little groundwork. Probably won’t happen for a long time though.

    I still haven’t had time to listen to the new VOP album!

    Merry, does it still really bother you not knowing who Ag is??

    Troyers’ Stitches is actually my Mom’s site.

    Tom

  10. Ha ha!

  11. Yeah, and Tom set up that stitching site for a web development class a little over a year ago. Same time he was working on the Tapestry site.

    Tom, get with it and listen to the new VOP album!

    And hey, by the time you set up the cooking website, I’ll probably be able to make some substantial contributions! 🙂 I’ve been learning to cook recently. Actually, maybe you should set up that site now for aid in my learning process.

  13. I’ve listened, but not enough yet to make intelligent comments. Very good though. I get to hear them live for the first time ever later this month! Very excited about that.

    Tom

  17. Thomas! You have let your people down. Ain’t it cool when you got a fan club and you didn’t even know it?

    Um, I ask this gently. Can you cook? And if you can, explain to me why that thought scares me.

    Hey, we could go into business together! I can cook.

  19. OOOOOH! This thing has got to be so totally annoying. That was me, like Ag. I should just sign in sometime…….but I never succumb to the pressure. Then I go and post anon, which I know drives Merry crazy, and I woulnd’t want to do anything to cause that shining halo to tarnish.

  21. Ok I am offended! Can I cook???!!!

    She asks AFTER I divulge my deepest emotions and desires about my dreams of a cooking web site.

    And women wonder why we men are wont to wad up and wedge our emotions way down where they can be warily withheld.

    And she wants to work with me but won’t say who she is!!

    Whoa, I’m a little woozy after that.

  23. You are SO sensitive!

    I KNOW men can cook. Alot of great chefs are men. I don’t doubt the men cooking part, I was slightly dubious about the Tom cooking part! But hey, you go dude!

    Your ever loyal friend,

    Ag

  25. Ag, you’re a riot and on a roll! 😉

    Let me just tell you that if my halo appears tarnished because of reacting to you, the tarnish was already there, you just brought attention to it. 🙂 Okay, don’t bother thinking too hard about that. 🙂

    Tom, don’t you ever wonder who Ag is?

    Merry

  26. You know what. This is too much fun! I love to finally be the one who gets to have a mysterious identity!

    Ag

  28. Yeah, I do wonder. But I have long ago learned to control my curiosity. Some people just thrive on making others curious! You’re playing into Ag’s hands Merry!

    I do think though that Ag shouldn’t get any questions answered until she steps out from behind her shroud of anonymity.

    Tom

  30. Yeah, doesn’t it rather bother you to be trading verbal punches with a faceless opponent.

    Oh, funny thing, my Sunday School lesson for my kids yesterday was about Job. I wonder if Job felt like that when he talked to God. Hmmmm……

    Merry
