Whimsy:A quaint or fanciful quality

I love this woman's artwork. Her cards and calendars are not widely sold around here...but now I know where to find her...she has a website. (which I will link at the sidebar)
Enjoy looking around!


I am listening to a CD called Hymn performed by The American Boychoir.
It is heavenly.

Not only for their voices, but for the content of the material and the memories the gorgeous hymns bring back to me.
Growing up in a Traditional Lutheran church one sings these song over and over...and some of them become favorites.

Last Sunday (the church we attend is not Lutheran) the musical theme was 'holy'...we sang many praise songs with the word holy in them...Oh, please sing, "Holy, Holy, Holy" next, I thought.
And they did....we all did. The sound was full, the words were was beautiful!
Tears welled up in my eyes. And the young mom next to me was crying too. We couldn't sing the last verse. We couldn't sing "wert and art". (*just joking* My kids and I love those funny words) It made my morning.

"All creatures of our God and King" is playing now. Allelluia!

If you like hymns...get this cd!

If you know of other cd's with hymns well done, share with me :o)

All Creatures of our God and King

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!


O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in heaven along,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice!


Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for thy Lord to hear,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
That givest man both warmth and light.


Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show.


And all ye men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on Him cast your care!


And thou most kind and gentle Death,
Waiting to hush our latest breath,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou leadest home the child of God,
And Christ our Lord the way hath trod.


Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!


*The words of that song were written in 1225 by St. Francis of Assisi. The verses are meaningful and respectful and deep. I love it!

Listen to the song at
You will remember the tune....I am sure!

Well...I was just all over the place today wasn't I. Dear Katie needs some attention.

Encourage one another,
