Hmmmm ... could it be I am at a "crossroads?"

It seems to me that what I wrote about on Wednesday  describes how I handled my coming to a crossroads of sorts.

When we come to a crossroads situation in life, whether big or small, it most always requires us to make a decision . . . a choice . . . about something.

Usually, the choice is about what we will do about what we face.  What direction we will go.  What steps we will take.

The decision we make when we come to a crossroads, often reflect our character.  Decisions we make when we come to a crossroads often reflect the depth of our faith and trust in God, family, neighbors and friends.

Most often, decisions we face at a crossroads . . . reflect the trust we have in ourselves.

Crossroads are often an opportunity to renew our minds, hearts, lives, and spirits.

I just re-read Psalm 51, our 10+10 scripture from this past Sunday.

 10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, 
       and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>

I have been feeling that way as well....out of focus....maybe I'm at a crossroads as well. I need to continue to pray about it.
Thanks Rick.

Glen Hansard talks about his well-worn Takamine Guitar

There is little doubt that the most famous guitar in the world, or at least the most famous Martin guitar, is Willie Nelson's guitar, "Trigger."

Another famous guitar is Glen Hansard's Takamine guitar, which he has played so much, on a daily basis, that it is even more worn than "Trigger" is.

The relationships certain performers form with their favorite instruments is truly fascinating to me.

Please enjoy the video!

Tuning a baritone uke to G-C-E-A ??

Well I'll be . . . it can be done.
If you didn't know, I use Aquila Nylgut Ukulele strings on my tenor and baritone ukes. Best sounding uke strings out there in my humble opinion.
I love my Kala tenor uke . . . but I've got such big bo-honking fingers, and the frets on a tenor uke are not exactly large . . . I can really only play chords on the first 5 frets.
Then one day a while back, I noticed on the package that Aquila makes a Baritone set tuned to G-C-E-A, just like my tenor. A baritone uke is usually tuned like the bottom 4 strings of a guitar . . . D-G-B-E.
Well, I jumped in and ordered a couple of sets. And . . . they work . . . at least to me. Now, I am not by any means a uke "purist." They are the "tools" I use as instruments when I sing certain songs. Restrung with the new strings, the Kala baritone is about as loud as my tenor . . . but with a little deeper sound. Some may not like it . . . but I do, especially as I work to learn the names of…

Goodbye Tom Petty . . ..

It was confirmed last night that Tom Petty died after being found in his home unresponsive and in full cardiac arrest.  Tom and the Heartbreakers has just finished up their 40th anniversary tour.  Tom was planning to spend more time at home with his new grandchild. 

Everyday is precious.  Live each day as if it is your last.

RIP Tom.  Thank you for the music!

God's grace, and cherished memories of people that made great music, still amaze me . . . ><>
