There is a Time

Gotta love those Darlings!

Don’t Give Up

When I hear this song by Josh Groban, I  only think of the Lord.  He offers us unconditional love, and because of Him, we have hope.  We do not have to live in despair.  We won’t give up. ~Anne

Amazing Love

We sang this hymn today in church and my heart soared.  God’s amazing love is ecstasy to me.  It overwhelms me and there are no words to really express my joy and gratitude my Lord….my advocate……my King!! I hope you will listen the lyrics of this song and be blessed as well.  ~Anne

Be sure to pause the online music on this site before you begin.

A Pittence of Time

The first time I heard this song….the tears flowed.  It’s a song dedicated to honoring the soldiers who have given their all for our freedom.  This particular song was written by a Canadian but we can appreciate here in America as well.

Be sure to pay attention to the shopper who does not want to take a few minutes to remember.

My Favorite Things

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phil 4:8

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

DO RE MI


Let’s start at the very beginning,  A very good place to start
When you read you begin with – A – B – C
When you sing you begin with DO – RE – MI
DO – RE – MI , DO – RE – MI
The first three notes just happen to be DO – RE – MI
DO – RE – MI
DO – RE – MI – FA – SO – LA – TI…
(Oh let’s see if I can make this easier)
DO – a deer, a female deer…. RE – a drop of golden sun
MI – a name, I call myself…..  FA – a long long way to run
SO – a needle pulling thread….. LA – a note to follow SO
TI – a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to do oh oh oh
Doe! – a deer, a female deer…. Ray! – a drop of golden sun
Me! – a name I call myself….. Far! – a long long way to run
So! – a needle pulling thread…..La! – a note to follow SO
Tea – a drink with jam and bread
That would bring us back to do!
A deer, a female deer…..RE, a drop of golden sun
MI, a name, I call myself……FA, a long long way to run
SO, a needle pulling thread…..LA, a note to follow SO
TI, a drink with jam and bread…..That would bring us back to do…
DO – RE – MI – FA – SO – LA – TI – DO! – SO – DO!

Anne of Green Gables

Would you like a mini-vacation….a few minutes to escape?  Enjoy these scenes from one of my favorite movies.  Even though I’ve seen it many times before these scenes still touch my heart. ~Anne 

"You two" from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

I hope you enjoy this sweet song from “Chitty Bang Bang”  This song reminds me of the joy that I have with my children. ~Anne

To me the answer’s clear; it’s having someone near; someone dear

Someone to care for; to be there for. I have You Two!
Someone to do for; muddle through for. I have You Two!
Someone to share joy or despair with; whichever betides you.
Life becomes a chore, unless you’re living for
someone to tend to be a friend to. I have You Two!
Someone to strive for, do or die for I have You Two!
Could be, we three get along so famously,

’cause you two have me, and I have You Two too.
Someone to care for; to be there for.

I have You Two!

Someone to do for; muddle through for

I have You Two!
Someone to smile once in awhile with;
whenever you’re lonesome
I’ve a happy lot, considering what I’ve got.
But, I couldn’t do more Than you do for your poor Father.

Things go asunder and I wonder why you bother.

Could be, we three get along so famously ’cause

Kids:

we two have you, and I have You Two…. too

Summer Magic "On The Front Porch With You"

I’ve always wanted to have a big front porch where the family could gather and sit at the end of the day in rocking chairs or swings.  Enjoy this clip from the old film Summer Magic with Haley Mills.  Love this song too!

Three creaky wooden stairs Those squeaky rocking chairs
The well worn welcome mat..The lattice vines… The happy times

All I want to do….When the day is through
Is linger here on the front porch…..With you
From the wicker swing… While the night birds sing
We’ll watch the fireflies sparkin’….Do some sparkin’ too
How the hours fly….As the moon drifts by —
How sweet the air….As we stare…At the sight
Oh! How I love to linger here like this
Hold your hand, and steal a kiss…Or two
On the front porch with you

All I want to do…When the day is through
Is linger here on the front porch….With you
From the wicker swing….While the night birds sing
We’ll watch the fireflies sparkin’…Do some sparkin’ too
(Some sparkin’ too!)
How the hours fly….As the moon drifts by —
How sweet the air…As we stare…At the sight

Oh! How I love to linger here like this
Hold your hand, and steal a kiss…Or two
On the front porch with you

I'll Fly Away~The Walton's

Thought I’d share one of my favorite “sit around and sing” songs

I’ll Fly Away

 G
Some glad morning when this life is o'er,
C          G
I'll fly away!
G                       Em
To a home on God's celestial shore:
G     D    G
I'll fly away!

        G                        C          G
      I'll fly away, oh Glory, I'll fly away.
         G                            Em
      When I die, hallelujah by and by,
        G     D    G
        I'll fly away!


When the shadows of this life have gone,
I'll fly away.
Like a bird from prison bars have flown,
I'll fly away.

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away.
To lead on where joys shall never end:
I'll fly away.

Wake Up America!

My DH and I put this video together.  After watching the news one day this song came pouring out of my heart.  My technodad husband made it into a video for me and put it on utube.  My guitar playing is not the best…..but I think the message comes through clear anyway. I hope you like it and are inspired to do something to help our America.  75% or us are evangelical Christians and most are conservative in their worldview.  If we all do a little we can stop this decline.  Many Blessings, Anne
