Happy Dreams and Old New Songs

Dear friends,

Last night before I went to sleep, I asked God to give me a happy dream.

So last night, after I went to sleep, I floated through the air on a funky blast of wind.  Floated among clouds that looked like scrubby-nubby sheep fleece, wishing I had my camera in my pocket to take a picture for this week's "Happy" theme on the P52 photo project.  Floated around the neighborhood for several minutes, and then returned home to a fancy French kitchen with brick-covered walls.  A happy dream.

Wake up.  My real kitchen walls are painted dark green.  And I have this lovely lacy wall hanging with birds.  I'll let them do the sky and cloud thing.

"Sing to the Lord a new song, 
for He has done marvelous things."
(Happy indeed!)

Sometime before Thanksgiving, I'll have to do a post listing my Thankful Thoughts, as a lot of my friends are doing.

For now, in keeping with "Sing to the Lord a new song", I'll link several Christian songs from the 1970's and 1980's.  I culled my old LP record collection last night and decided to see if I could find some of the songs on YouTube in case I ever want to listen to them again.  Here are a few I found:

(If you don't see the videos via e-mail or Reader, click on the blog post!)

  1. Some of these singers are our favorites... especially my husband's. Good sharing. And some of the songs back in the '70s were so clearly stated of the love and care of the Lord in ways that somehow isn't focused on today. Just so they touch into and reach hearts... that's what counts.

  2. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful truth and linking up at Simply Helping Him! Blessings!

  3. WHAT? Are you trying to 'date' me?? ;-) I just had to smile when I saw the 'Second Chapter of Acts." I saw them in concert I'm dated!!

    Thanks for linking up and sharing this post over at WholeHearted Home this week. Happy Thanksgiving.
