The bible says in 2 Samuel 6:14 - David...danced before the Lord with all his might.
When was the last time you danced before your Lord?? What?? You say you don't have reason for dancing?? Well, I will disagree with you. Dancing is viewed as a form of expression. Dancing can be used to express emotions, and if you have been washed with the blood of Jesus then you definitely have reason to express your emotion of gratitude and of happiness by dancing for your Savior!!
The song for this blog comes from a female vocalist by the name of Kim Boyce, a former Miss Florida and a semi-finalist in 1984's Miss American Pageant, Kim began her Christian singing career in 1985 and she was known as the queen of Christian Pop music in the 80's.
She recorded 8 albums with one of them being in spanish. From the 7 albums, she achieved 11 number one songs. Her 1987 production "Love is You to me" is where we get the song for this post. "Dancin' My Heart Away" is a very upbeat song, and if you found yourself tapping your feet to our last post's song then this will for sure will make you get up and dance for your Lord!
Celebrate your salvation, celebrate your eternal life with the Creator of all, Celebrate Jesus!! Go ahead dance your heart away! Enjoy:

Have you tried about everything this world has to offer to only find yourself not being satisfied??? Well, the song for this post will speak on the issue of being satisfied.
If you are familiar with Christian Music you have probably heard of the quartet the Imperials, a group that had a big influence in the Christian Music scene for many years. Besides being a great music group it also served as a launching pad for solo careers for a few of its members, with the most famous one being Russ Taff. But on this post I will be sharing a song from a former member of the Imperials by the name of Paul Smith, he joined the Imperials after Russ Taff left the quartet and Paul's influence in the group led the Imperials to some great albums. Paul left the Imperials to pursue a solo career, one that produced 5 albums, of his 5 albums I picked a song from his 1989 album: Back to Who I Am which was his 3rd production. This song talks about how a person can be completely satisfied by allowing Jesus into their life. The world will try to get you to buy into all it offers in order to bring you satisfaction, but trust me anything the world has to offer is temporary and empty, what Jesus offers you will bring about a secure feeling and knowledge of satisfication. With its "pop vibe" this song will have you singing the chorus "So satisfied with Jesus in my life". Enjoy the song by clicking on the link:So Satisfied

It has been quite a few months since my last posting. Between the website Imeem taking away the ease of posting music on here and dealing with me feeling sorry for myself because I was not getting any feedback from anyone beside my wife (Thank You Love for doing that!) I made the decision to stop posting. You know a Godly wife is such a big blessing in a man's life, and I have to thank her for helping me get back on here. So, if it is just me posting on this blog so that my wife can learn and hear of new music then that is ok with me.

UPDATE: 23 MARCH 2010 - Link is good.
Are you the type of person who starts something to then just put it aside and leave it until you are ready to pick it up again??? Well this short post will bring you a song that talks about that subject. The Artist that I will be sharing with you, is one who used to sing in a very famous Christian Band until he went on to a Solo career. There have been occasions where a Christian Artist has had a bigger singing career as a soloist than when they belonged to a band. Recent case being TobyMac (from the former DC Talk). Truth is there are quite a few Christian Artists that have branched out on their own, but today we will focus on just one of them.
I am talking about former lead vocals to the band Petra - Greg X. Volz. Greg parted ways with Petra back in 1985 to spend more time with his family and to pursue a Solo career. He went on to record over 9 albums, his debut solo album (The River is Rising - 1986) is considered to be his best work ever! Although I am not sharing a song from that album with you today, I am sharing with you a song from his second Solo release (I Come Out Fighting - 1988). The title of this song is Back Burner.

As I type this posting, I am currently converting a cassette to digital format so that I can upload it to my Itunes (Paul Smith's Back to Who I Am) a great "Album" but more on that on a later post. It is good to know that there are a few people reading this blog. I do appreciate it. I am a person that considers himself very blessed by the Lord. He has blessed me with an Awesome Wife, 2 handsome boys, a great job (one which I will be saying good bye to in a little over a year) the Lord has blessed me in many other things that I wont mention because I am not on here to brag, but to share some topics of great Christian Music of years past. And as I mentioned before I consider myself to be very blessed, in my first post, I talked about how I had lost through out the years most of my great collection of Christian Music that I once owned. I have been trying to build my collection back up again, by looking here there and everywhere. Well that brings me to the title of this post, on Friday my wife and I were riding together in my truck after we dropped her SUV off for some maintenance. It was early enough in the afternoon that we (mostly me) didnt feel like rushing back home, so we decided to just stop in a few stores to browse, the first store we stopped in did not bring about any good finds for me, or wait maybe it did, because my wife did buy a new non-stick frying pan and a Ginormous spatula which she christened by making me a DELICIOUS breakfast on Saturday, but I digress!!! After we finished at that store, we made a few other stops and just before we were to head home, Suzanne (my wife) wanted to stop in and look around in one of those Habitat Thrift Stores so me being the great husband that I am decided to oblige her and we went in...as we are looking around the store going up and down the aisles of stuff they have, I came across an aisle that had Music, well I thought to myself that it wouldnt hurt to look, so I started to sort through the mess of tapes they had and to my great surprise I found Michael W. Smith's The Big Picture cassette, great "Album" with songs like Rocketown, Old Enough to Know and Lamu amongst other great songs. As I stood there with this incredible find in my hands, my interest in the pile of tapes grew strong. I made myself comfortable on the floor right there in that aisle ready to find at least one more great tape. Well, my efforts paid off because instead of finding 1 more tape I actually found 4 other great Christian Artists cassettes, 3 of which I had lost and 1 that I never had before. To me finding these tapes was like finding the Motherload, I am so glad that Suzanne wanted to stopped in that store to browse! What a great blessing this was to me. Just in case you are curious the other 4 tapes I found were: Bryan Duncan's Anonymous Confession of a Lunatic Friend (one of my favorite Bryan Duncan's albums), Sheila Walsh's Shadowlands, Russ Taff -self title album and Mylon LeFevre & Broken Heart's Crack in the Sky. It is my desire to eventually be able to put some of these songs from these albums here on my blog. But what I will do is share this video with you. Thank You Leah for sharing with me how to be able to do this!! This video is from Bryan Duncan's Mercy Album. The lyrics on this song are so powerful!! Every time I listen to this song it really does minister to me. The title of the song is Love Takes Time, and for those of you who are in love, you will probably agree with me that Love does take time, we are not perfect people and in our relationships we have to allow love to take the time it needs to grow. As one who is a believer in God's Love for us I am tankful for how He loves me, and it is that way that I want to Love not only those who love me (because that is very easy) but to love those that don't! Thanks for reading!
