  1. Fine choral singing! It sounds so clean and clear and wholesome. What a good group!

    Unfortunately, I can no longer post as myself, because I've been locked out of my own blog, and cannot get back in.

    The usual methods draw a blank.

    I guess blogger doesn't want me around anymore.

    BTW, I've been meaning to mention that RUSH LIMBAUGH's program has been JAMMED in my area. All I can get now is a loud, hideous BUZZ.

    *&!(@)$&%/@#":{@#$%^!!!


    They did this to him when he had a TV show. It was ALWAYS interrupted by "technical difficulties" that never happened with the crap TV appearing before and after Rush.

  2. FT,
    I got locked out of all my blogs recently. I complied with the parameters of the security message for the security measure and got back in.

  5. Good music can be very uplifting. Nevertheless,getting back to the Subject of Islam. It should be repeated that one of the many ways that this violent death cult may be described is that it is a tyrannical religious/political system of mind control. With that stated it's fitting to site Thomas Jefferson when he wrote "I have sworn upon the alter of God etetnal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of God."

  6. Beautifully done and beautiful lyrics....excellent question asked there.
    I often sing "Lord Jesus, is it I?" during Easter week; talk about moving lyrics.
    And I sang "Were you there?" last week at a large bible study Easter program...Me and 3 gospel singers; what a thrill. And, as you know, to sing with a fabulous pianist lifts us singers into an amazing place.
    Happy Easter, AOW, to you and MR AOW...
    If you speak to Patricia, Please tell her I have been planning to write and hope to soon!
    God bless you, AOW. z

  7. Z,
    I almost posted "Were You There?" but opted for this piece for today.

    "Were You There?" is probably my favorite Good Friday hymn.

    I talk with Patricia with great frequency. Her son is coming for a visit in a few days, and she's looking forward to see him after all these months of his being away.

  8. None of us is worthy of God's Son dying on the cross so that we might have salvation. I think that we should keep in mind that we don't deserve such Love!

  12. Thank you for posting such a blessed piece, AOW.

    I liked what DaBlade said about how much God loves us. Very comforting.

  13. The wounded surgeon plies the steel
    That questions the distempered part;
    Beneath the bleeding hands we feel
    The sharp compassion of the healer's art
    Resolving the enigma of the fever chart.

    Our only health is the disease
    If we obey the dying nurse
    Whose constant care is not to please
    But to remind of our, and Adam's curse,
    And that, to be restored, our sickness must grow worse.

    The whole earth is our hospital
    Endowed by the ruined millionaire,
    Wherein, if we do well, we shall
    Die of the absolute paternal care
    That will not leave us, but prevents us everywhere.

    The chill ascends from feet to knees,
    The fever sings in mental wires.
    If to be warmed, then I must freeze
    And quake in frigid purgatorial fires
    Of which the flame is roses, and the smoke is briars.

    The dripping blood our only drink,
    The bloody flesh our only food:
    In spite of which we like to think
    That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood
    Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.


    -- T.S.Eliot- from Four Quartets
