Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Thriving And Doing What I like - #Music

Today was a good day. Service was good. We always learn something new about Christ and even better when we are together. I gave them a dollar each for the offering plate. I want them to learn about that too.

Did y'all have a good Easter?

I hope you did!
Casting Crowns
Ours was simple and okay. As I write, my kids are watching HOP and eating ice cream treats.

Me: I'm doing laundry and getting read to do more hair.

Our Nail Moon gave us a theme for today: Theme is "little bit country & a little bit rock & roll!
Here in this worn and weary land
Where many a dream has died
Like a tree planted by the water
We never will run dry

So living water flowing through
God, we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls with one desire

Just to know You and to make You known
We lift Your name on high
Shine like the sun, make darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive

Into Your word, we're digging deep
To know our Father's heart
Into the world, we're reaching out
To show them who You are

Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable
Love unstoppable, anything is possible

And the ever adorable Blake is singing What I like :) So romantic

  3. Our Easter weekend was quietly spent between the two of us, but it was nice. The weather was gorgeous. Here in the early a.m. hours, I have the washer and dryer going. House chores have to be done, but it's nice to listen to music as I get these things done and I love yours! Have a tunetastic week, my friend!

    1. I think music make chores easier :) or seems to go faster :)

      Glad you had a lovely weekend with your love.

      Thank you Cathy!

  4. LOVE Blake Shelton!! :)
    Glad you had a nice Easter. Ours was low key - but spent together, so that is all that matters

    1. Ooh thanks for sharing your music man Noelle :)
      And lowkey is very nice. Less stress.

  5. Glad you had a nice Easter, Callie! Ours was great as well. Love your picks - especially Blake Shelton! ;) Have a great week! :)

    1. Thank you Julia!
      Glad you shared your time with me!

  7. Me too.... Silly me I was only looking at the apples... lol but I sniffed Blake Shelton out. Love him... love the video too LOL The first one is new to me, but definitely cool. So happy your Easter was nice. With all the drama we've had the last few months I was happy to get a quiet holiday & some quality time with hubby & myself. YOU ROCKED THE HOUSE GIRLFRIEND! Hugzzzzzzzzzzzzz Man, everyone must have gone out today or was too tired from the holiday. Hardly anyone came out to boogie. LOL

    1. How you like em apples :) lol
      Glad you had a quiet time with your loves Dolly. Sometimes quiet is best than having to always host.

      It's normal for bloggers to take time away for their family :)

  8. I don't know these songs, but then again, I'm not a country music fan so it's no surprise.

    1. It's okay Joyce :)
      Just shake along with us :)


  9. Thank you Steve :)
    I guess I wont rub it in that it was very good :)

  10. I have my little one put $ in the offering plate too, but he gets shy about it when the guy hands it to him. No idea why. :)

    Glad you had a nice day, happy to report we did too. Gramma and Grandpa know how to do up Easter. :)

    1. It's true, they are so excited to put the money in and then get shy to put it in :)

      Thank you Rosey.
      I'm glad you had a wonderful time this Easter!

  11. Coming by late but Happy Wednesday of Easter.
    Your picks were certainly a good fit.
