The Gaither Vocal Band is bringing their sweet gospel music to Lexington, Kentucky, November 5, 2021 for a concert at Lex City Church at 7:00 pm. General admission is $25/person, $22/old person like me 😤 or children 12 and under. If you buy as a group of 10 or more, it goes down to $20/person. If you haven’t heard Ladye Love Smith’ angelic sound or listened to Kevin Moore “fiddlin’ around,” these each would be worth the ticket price. But the venue is stacked with other gospel voices worth listening to, not to mention the Gaither Vocal Band, one of the most iconic groups to bless the Heavens and earth with their original melodies.
Bill and Gloria remain one of the most beloved and musically gifted musical duos in America.
We’ve had lots of “froggy” mornings this autumn here in Lexington, KY. Sometimes the sun does not burn it off till nearly noon!
Change is a lot easier when it is someone else. What do you think?
Okay, I confess, I’ve never been able to capture lightning on film like this, but this is the same road near Panamint, Arizona, that we took in 2019 on Christmas day.
Lots of rain in Kentucky. Wonder if I could eat these and not die? 😎
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.“ (Ephesians 6:12)
“For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
Just as in the story of Ezekiel 37 and the dry bones, you may sometimes feel disconnected, lifeless and despairing. But Jesus can bring your life back together. He can make even dry bones dance again.
So, don’t quit. Don’t give up. The One who reassembled the dry bones and got them moving again can do the same for you.
All of us need to be reminded, especially when life seems hopeless, of God’s plan to restore us and give us a second chance — a divine reset.
Like I told my bride, “I WILL get the hedge planted. You do not have to nag me every two or three years.” 😂 Well, walking in Lowe’s to stay out of the heat, we noticed some Burning Bushes (Euonymus alatus) on sale as well as some Dwarf Alberta Spruces (Picea glauca Conica), all priced for out-of-season as the planting time in Kentucky is about over. So we bought twelve bushes and four trees to spread across a side fence in the back yard. The little more than three hours work would have been less if we did not have so many limestone rocks and the neighbor’s tree roots.
But the pots were small, so the digging went fairly quickly. Placed a rock in the bottom of each hole to stabilize the plant and make the roots grow around it, not that the westerly winds will blow through the fence, anyway.
The Burning Bushes were planted with just a little of the root ball above ground and the Spruces just even with the grade. I plan to mulch pretty soon . . . “Honey, you don’t need to nag me every eight or nine months to add the mulch!” 😁
I have marked the date in my smartphone for the next few years and will give an annual report here on Wordless Wednesday each year. 👌
Okay, I DID do the mulching today. 😊
Rupali posted a bee about the time I took these pics and I scolded her (😄) for spoiling my Wordless Wednesday, but I guess since “my bee” is on a pink flower, I can get away with it without bee-ing accused of plagiarizing her bee-utiful blog (https://mazeepuran.wordpress.com/2021/08/16/bee-a-lady-well-laden-with-pollen/) . I believe this 10 year old plant is a pink geranium I planted, but open to correction if someone recognizes it as something different? 😏
