About the writer

The title of my blog relates to my decision to make my life a song of worship to God. Music can be beautiful.  It can also be obnoxious.  We can sing the song of our lives for selfish gain, or pleasure.  Or, we can choose to share our gifts, money and time with others.  I have tried both and that is why I now do my best to live (sing) for God.   My prayer is that my life be a beautiful song of worship rather than the sound of nails on a chalkboard.  It may be fun and easy to make the latter sound.  But, it’s not what others need.

My focus in this blog is to write devotionals based on the liturgical scriptures of the week. Occasionally  I will offer a new book or song announcement. I appreciate all those who follow, read and “like” my writings and music and hope you find some encouragement here.

  1. Hi Don
    Nice to meet you :-)
    I’ve been pitter-pattering around, so do forgive the footprints. There is much to read and listen to here. Thanks for sharing!

      • I am one of those christians who btaelts with the command GO. I have so many ideas that would help my church grow tremendously, but my church is very small and there are not many youth advocates that would help bring my ideas to fruition. So, I choose to stay where I am due to the lack of help and motivaiton within my church. I am just stuck between a rock and a hard place and I don’t know what to do.

      • I have often been in places where I felt unappreciated and unmotivated. For me, the change had to come from within. I believe it is we who decide to minister in strength and power. Decide to be a positive and powerful influence in your church and you will be. Blessings. Don

    • I often believe that I have been such a dinsoppintmeat. But, know that when God sees me he sees Jesus. But, here is what I often think about. If God sees Jesus who died for all of our sins, what does Jesus see when he looks down on earth. I try so very hard to be a good person and when I try really hard, I fail. But, when I run to Jesus to say I am sorry, he holds out his arms takes me into a tight hug and tells me it is okay. Go try again but, let me help you. Each day is better than the day before.
