Playlist and a prayer request

I LOVE this verse from Genesis...

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives."
                                                                                                       Genesis 50:20 (NIV)

A while back ago, I had a 'review' on my blog.  At the time I had a playlist, and this person told me they loved everything about my blog, except the playlist.  And what they said about it was that... listening to my gospel music while trying to read almost turned them away from reading my blog.  I ended up taking it off, thinking maybe it was distracting for people to hear while they were trying to read.  

Lately, I've had a few 'go to' songs that just ease my nerves when I'm having a bad day, and I want them on here so I can listen to them while I write.  So, I added them back at the bottom, but elected to turn off 'auto play', so they won't turn on when my blog is opened.  You have to go to the bottom of my page and manually turn them on if you want to hear them.  I hope you do.  They have such a profound place in my life right now.

I have a prayer request that I'd really appreciate you all taking a minute to pray about with me with.  Jen - my 'ex' sister-in-law, and good friend - husband has had to have several heart caths put in in the past few months.  She found him unconscious outside a few days ago.  He's home now, but between that, working full time, parenting four boys 9 and under, and just enrolling to go back to school to get her Practitioner's License, she needs to feel God with her, giving her strength, courage, and a sense of peace, as she walks through this period of time in her life.  

Hope you all had a good week-end!!!


  1. I love that verse- it's one I clung to have losing Andon.

  2. Sept 9th is on my calendar, we will be praying for you!! I can't imagine what your going thru but I always said if losing my breasts would mean staying alive for my children then so be it.... but actually living that reality, im sure, is alot different.
    But continue your great attitude and I will continue to pray for amazing peace

  3. ohhh that verse. meaning, meaning, meaning.

    personally, i love playlists on blogs, which i suppose explains my own :) i will often leave a blog open just to listen to the music for awhile :)

    and i will definitely be praying.

    much love to you, always

  4. Prayers going their way. Hope he heals quickly.

    Music means a lot to me and usually I can find a song that either 'speaks' to me or makes me feel better.

    I didn't write you, but personally, I don't prefer blogs with music. Reading and listening to music at the same time can be distracting sometimes. But, it is your blog, so you get to do what YOU want. I personally read the blogs I follow in Google Reader, therefore I don't run into the music situation while I am reading. Then everyones happy. :)
