God certainly used a “village” to bring my latest CD, “Just Over The Hilltop” into being and all for His Glory. Many people comment on how they have been blessed, even by the CD cover.
Carolyn Binion, a dear sister in Christ, frequently drives for me. She has told the following story Live on several occasions.
Since I have been driving for Laurel Jean for the past 3 years many exciting things have happened, but one is very memorable.
It happened near New Harmony, IN. I was spending the weekend working with her. We visited the Roofless Church. What an
It was a beautiful day and we decided to take a walk. We went down this pathway with not a clue where we were headed. We came to a dead-end and right before us was a river. I was explaining to Laurel Jean what lay ahead and she said, "I want to get to the river and take my shoes off and put my feet in the water". I told her that was entirely out of the question because there was about 6-7 feet of rip-rap in a steep slope going down to the river. She insisted on trying so "what could I do". She began to climb down the slope feeling her way along.
When she got to the river she took off her shoes and DID put her feet in the river. She encouraged me to "come with her” but I told her I had to stay where I was so that "when she fell in the river I could go for help.
As she was climbing back up she asked me to take several pictures of her on "her adventure". Little did I know that my famous picture would end up on the cover of her latest CD album. What a woman, what a courageous person, what an inspiration to me. I love her!
Thanks, Carolyn, for sharing this story for my Blog! I am also grateful for Arleigh, who assisted in the rendering of these images and for Sara Thomas, who brought the album’s theme to life in this unique cover design.
God, Who continues to bless me with a growing circle of associates and friends, also has the first and the last Word. I always place a cross somewhere on my CD covers. This time, however, it just wasn’t working with the graphics being used. If you look just above my name, between the E and the A, you will see that God took matters into His own hands. See if you can find the cross in the formation of the rocks.
I love working for my Heavenly Father!
Stay tuned for more posts like this one. Until next time, God bless you and keep His Song in your heart!
