You reminded me of this band I used to listen to.

This song and video hit me hard. It's raw and simply tender. I was perfectly fine and then realized I'm actually not. It's effect is one of deliverance and healing. The Holy Spirit is my closest Comforter. I believe He caused you to post that song, what feels like it was just for me.

Bless you.

Marty Robbins despised communism. Be like Marty Robbins. As relevant today as ever!


Marty Robbins - Ain't I Right

You came down to this Southern town last summer
to show the folks a brand new way of life.
But all you've shown the folks around here is trouble
and you've only added misery to their strife.

Your concern is not to help the people,
and I'll say again, though it's been often said:
your concern is just to bring discomfort, my friend,
and your policy is just a little red.

Now, ain't I right.
(Ain't he right... ain't he right.)

It matters not to you how people suffer -
and should they, you consider that a gain.
You bring a lot of trouble to the town and then you leave;
that's part of your communistic game.

I detect a little communisim,
I can see it in the things you do.
Communism, socialism, call it what you like;
there's very little difference in the two.

Now, ain't I right.
(Ain't he right... ain't he right.)

Your followers have sometimes been a bearded, bathless bunch -
there's even been a minister or two;
a priest, a nun, a rabbi, and an educated man
have listened and been taken in by you.

All the country's full of two-faced politicians
who encourage you with words that go like this:
"burn your draft card if you like, it's good to disagree" -
that's a get-acquainted communistic kiss.

Now, ain't I right.
(Ain't he right... ain't he right.)

One politician said it would be nice to send some blood,
and help the enemy in Vietnam.
That's what he says, here's what I say: let's just keep the blood,
instead let's send that politician man.

Let's rid the country of the politicians
who coddle tramps that march out in our street,
protesting those who wanna fight for freedom, my friend -
this kind of leader makes our country weak.

Now, ain't I right.
(Ain't he right... ain't he right.)

Let's look and find the strong and able leaders.
It's time we found just how our neighbors stand.
If we're to win this war with communism,
let's fight it here as well as Vietnam.

Let's rise as one and meet our obligations
so communistic boots will never trod
across the fields of freedom that were given to us
with the blessing of our great Almighty God.

Across the fields of freedom that were given to us
with the blessing of our great Almighty God.

Divna! She sings like an angel: "Christ is Risen". Transliteration of Greek:] Christós anésti ek nekrón, thanáto thánaton patísas, ké tís en tís mnímasi, zoín charisámenos! [Translated in English:] Christ is risen from the dead, Trampling down death by death, And upon those in the tombs Bestowing life!

I’m reading through the Kathisma with a few other ladies here (anyone is welcome to join and I suggest that you do) and part of my reading was Psalm 33. The verses prior (my sections started at chapter 26) were about struggle, persecution, sin, God’s protection, forgiveness, and unwavering love, and then a song of joy and celebration. One line of Psalm 33 is “Sing to Him a new song” which reminded me of one of my favorite childhood hymns “Earth and All Stars.”

Watched the movie Crossroads with my daughters the other day. Acoustic classical guitar is probably one of the most under appreciated instruments. Love this piece by Paganini:

When it comes to secular music I’m old school. Jazz, blues, oldies, classic rock and some classical. When it comes to Christian I love the Getty’s. I love Christ is risen, in Christ alone and I love their version of hark the herald angels sing. Nice Irish twang to it.

Also adore the song amazing love how can it be. I think that’s the title. Have several different artists with that song on my playlist. It’s the words in addition to the beat. My favorite line is bold I approach the eternal throne and claim the crown through Christ my own. It’s beautiful.

I posted this in the Psalter thread but it belongs here too. It is a meditation on the Nativity with beautiful music that we sing in church. Christ is Born!
