Live & Learn

“Foy Vance, 39, was born in the North Ireland town of Bangor, but his passion for traditional music was born in the southern states of America. As a child, Foy relocated with his father, a preacher, to the American Midwest settling in Oklahoma. With his father, Foy travelled the American South, widening his horizons and absorbing the rich musical traditions he was exposed to. Returning to Ireland some years later, Foy began writing his own music, deeply shaped by the sounds of his youth. Since those days, he has spent a considerable amount of time on the road, touring with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Michael Kiwanuka, Marcus Foster, Snow Patrol, and Ed Sheeran. Foy also scored Oscar-winning short-film The Shore with David Holmes, who collaborated with Vance on his 2012 Melrose EP. Foy’s newest album, Joy Of Nothing, will be released this year.  Vance is moved by…

What a good word. Thank you! We need “trust” in relationships today, sooooo much.


By the sea

”A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter:
“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said:
“No, Dad. You hold my hand.”
“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.

“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl.
“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love than expecting them to hold yours…”


I saw this today and though I had planned another post entirely, I believe…

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Now forget the song, and turn that line into the title or inspiration for your post.

As we all walk through this life, we sometimes feel that we are all alone. That was me most of my early years. But as I walk on in my later years I realize that I was not alone.  Never once was I alone. God was always there. Even through the battle scars he was there gently leading me toward Him. Never once did I walk alone. God is faithful even when I don’t  realize he is there.  He has not left us alone, he provided a way to overcome this life.Image

Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life

There’s an idea afoot that God cursed Adam and Eve because they disobeyed him.

But that’s not what the Bible says.

The whole story unfolds in Genesis chapter 3.

God had said to Adam, “You may freely eat of every tree in the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you may not eat, for on the day that you eat of it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:16–17).

However, after God created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs, and the two of them became husband and wife, that crafty old serpent (really, just a glorified snake) got busy.

That’s where we pick up the story in Genesis 3.

Though Adam was in the garden with Eve, the serpent ignored him completely. Instead, he went to work on Eve: “Did God really say, ‘You may not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
