I wished you a Happy Birthday on Facebook yesterday so I'm a little late saying it here today Verna. How does it feel to be celebrating your annual 49th birthday? I decided on my last birthday that I am now in the "elderly" category but most of my friends are so much younger than I that I oughta start cultivating more friends in the over-the-hill group. The problem is, so few have computers!
I made a delicious quiche today (with John's considerable help). With a dollop of sour cream on top, it's sure to put some weight on me. I have gained a total of 10 lbs since February so my doctor should be pleased when I go in next week for shots.
Don, I love all kinds of music so Southern Gospel is right there in the mix, too. It kind of reminds me of old camp meetings or something. It's lively, the harmony is great, and the songs about heaven are rousing. I've read that it became popular in the South because the farmers and their wives many years ago worked so hard all week and when Sunday came, they wanted to sing joyous song, full of spirit so it would get their minds off the hard lives they were living and celebrate on Sundays. Kind of like the reasons the slaves loved their music on Sundays and often would spend all day singing and praising. It was a way to forget, and have their spiritual reservoirs renewed at the same time.
I think I need a little snooze. See you all later.....
"O Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord, forgive me if I say
For very love, thy sacred name, a thousand times a day.
O Jesus, Lord, with me abide; I rest in Thee whate'er betide.
Thy gracious smile is my reward. I love, I love Thee, Lord.
