Watch “Jonathan McReynolds – Limp” on YouTube

If you’ve been with me on this journey, you are well aware of my relationship with music.

If not, here’s a short summary: Music is my lifeline, love language and one of my all-around favorite things.

I’ve shared various songs in the past and will be making a habit of doing that more in this space.

The Simple Songs

Thank God for the simple songs. 

I’m up early this morning in full out crafting/wedding prep mode and this song came up randomly on an automated playlist. 

If you’ve been connected to me via social media, you’ve probably observed my love for music. All types, genres and from all periods. I live my life in lyrics and those closest to me are familiar with my daily references to song lyrics in most of my conversations. 😊

Thinking back on many of my most difficult periods, it was my WORSHIP– the “simple songs”– that helped me get through. 

My heart remembered one of THE MOST difficult days, when I called my mom to vent and get some encouragement and her response was to start singing,  “I Won’t Complain.”  A simple song. 

Those lyrics were really all I needed to hear.  I thank God for a relationship like that.  Where one knows the song that can minister to someone else. 

But what if we didn’t have and continue to sing those SIMPLE SONGS? 

Needless to say, this song really blessed my soul this morning. Sometimes those reminders come just when we need them and I know it’s not by coincidence.  

I shared it on my Instagram page and wanted to also include it here along with a link to the video. 

I pray it is a blessing and encouragement for you this morning. 

🎢 🎢….The simple song of life simply says, β€œYou SO LOVED the WORLD, That you gave your life for EVERY man, little boy, and girl.” 

In this quest of life when tempests rage,I fall on my knees and say, 

β€œLord don’t take my simple song away”.πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’– 

….In this quest of life when tempests rage, I fall on my knees and say, πŸ™πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’– 

β€œLord don’t take my simple song away”…… Songs like 

🎢…”AMAZING GRACE, how SWEET the sound, that SAVED a WRETCH like me”…🎢 πŸ™ŒπŸ˜­ 

Songs like, 🎢”Oooh we, ooh wee child, things are gonna get easier”….🎢 πŸ™

Songs like, 🎢”We got to find a way, to bring some LOVIN’ here today”….πŸŽΆπŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’— 

β€œLord don’t take my simple song away”….

 It may be simple to you, but it’s mine. All mine. All mine!….

Lord we THANK YOU for the SIMPLE SONGS! 🎢 


Reflections on The Holy Land

This will be my first “official” series on this blog. Β I didn’t plan this in advance, but my husband and I participated in a Holy Land tour last month and I’ll be sharing my reflections of that experience over the course of the next few weeks.Β The timing couldn’t be more perfect. For those who participate in Lent, you know that the season began on Wednesday, March 1st.

I’m not going to promise any certain frequency because my schedule is EXTREMELY BUSY (That’s an understatement), but I am drafting posts more regularly and journaling more often, so the content is coming! (To God be the Glory). Β Please keep me in your prayers and thank you for your patience with me during the more silent periods.

Heaven on Earth

This song has been on my heart since I woke up at around 4:30 this morning.

So powerful!

I pray it lifts your spirit and encourages you this morning πŸ’–

[Verse 1]

The spirit of the Lord is upon me
His anointing is empowering
The Kingdom of the Lord is within me
And He’s calling me to the heavenlies

Be seated in heavenly places
Just like Heaven, just like Heaven on Earth
To be walking in His favor and grace is
Just like Heaven, just like Heaven on Earth
Oh-oh-oh-oh Heaven, Heaven on Earth
Oh-oh-oh-oh Heaven
