Sometimes I am at a loss as to what song to sing on the spot when I want to sing to God. I have hundreds of songs in my memory bank from childhood until now. This was kind of a remake of one of those choruses we sang in church while I was growing up that went something like this – “I lift my hands up unto Thy name, my lips shall praise You, thus will I bless You, I will lift up my hands unto Thy name”. I took Psalm 63 as my inspiration and made the words more personal as I would say them.

I have been married for 27 years. We are almost empty-nesters, with the youngest of our three sons still living at home. I was a stay-at-home mom and home schooled our boys for nearly all of their elementary through high school years. My husband and I were and are grateful that such a thing was possible for our family. These days I am writing a lot. The more I write, the more I want to write! I write and sing and play my own songs. I love music and until early 2020 I had a regular and cherished ministry at two assisted living/rehabilitation hospitals. The pandemic and all of the strict requirements left me on the outside, missing my dear friends who I was unable to visit for over a year. The road is now paved to re-open in about a month (June, 2021) and I will have the great privilege to go and sing to them and tell them about Jesus' love for them once again! Another big milestone next month will be my third anniversary of beginning this blog. When I studied up to educate myself on how to even start a blog, I read that it is common to quit the blog after a year or two. I can't believe it worked and I stayed with it! It always encourages me and strengthens my resolve to continue blogging when I hear from you, the readers. I hope and pray that this blog will continue to be a blessing and encouragement to many of you. Thank you for your friendship and support. View all posts by thislifeuntilthen-debispurlock
