‘Up from the Grave He Arose’

This is the first hymn that I wanted when I woke today–Up from the Grave He Arose, sung by the Voice of Eden. Really, you can never be too early to celebrate Easter. Is there any reason not to rejoice in Christ’s Resurrection every day?


Bedtime for Kitty

Cats love to sleep, and as you can see from this video, a lot of them are really good at it. Note the many cats who love to knead their bedding material as they drift off to dreamland. You, although human, can learn to do the same. My cats assure me it really helps you get to sleep faster.


Time for a Laugh: Bob & Ray, and ‘The World’s Largest Living Lizard’

A good laugh is a gift of God, and I don’t know about you this morning, but I need one!

So here are Bob & Ray with a bizarre comedy routine they first performed in 1970. What happens when an expert in an obscure field of knowledge is interviewed by a total idiot? Listen, and find out.

If you’re too young to remember Bob & Ray, give them a chance. This is dry, quietly crazy humor at its very best.

I’ve never been interviewed by anyone who can’t remember what I said from one minute to the next. Maybe if I’m lucky, I never will be.


Sunday School Favorite: ‘Yield Not to Temptation’

I wonder how many times we sang this hymn in Sunday school. I don’t know why, but every hymn I hear today moves me practically to tears. I think I’m responding to God’s goodness, of which we all stand so much in need. So here it is–Yield Not to Temptation, Nathan on the mandolin, Lyle on guitar.


By Request, ‘Be Thou My Vision’

There have been a lot of proud and mighty enterprises that were supposed to last a thousand years, but didn’t. This ancient Irish hymn, Be Thou My Vision, has them all beat by a long shot: first sung in the 8th century, still loved today.

Requested by Joshua, sung by Maranatha, and in time for St. Patrick’s Day.


Cats & Candles

And then there was the gavone whose house burned down because he wanted to film his car snuffing out a candle and the cat smacked it off the table and into the curtains…

True, most cats can deftly put out a candle. But a few aren’t really all that good at it, and we are all better off not leaving candles untended with cats on the premises. But some people will do anything to get on Youtube.


By Request, ‘The Lord of Sea and Sky’

Susan asked for this one, The Lord of Sea and Sky, and here we have it by the National Youth Choir of Scotland. Fitting, isn’t it? We remember Samuel as a little boy, called by God during the night–he thought it was Eli, at first–and finally answering, “Here I am, Lord!”

Blessed are those who hear the call, and answer it.


Cats and Turtles

Cats don’t know quite what to make of turtles. Our cat Henry used to sit contemplating our painted turtle, who would swim around and around in hopes that Henry would feed him, because he was always fed by hand. Henry never came across with any snacks.

The turtles in this video have absolutely no fear of cats. They have given up hoping for snacks from that source.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

This is a classic Isaac Watts hymn–Am I Soldier of the Cross?–set against a Scottish highland backdrop by singer Andy Kenway: the work of God’s hands, who sculpted the shape of the earth.


Kitten Oratory

What are these fuzzy little characters trying so hard to tell us?

I don’t know. My cat, Robbie, knows at least 50 different ways to say “Give me something to eat.” She and her sister, Peep, also excel at pulling wistful little faces. They’ve practiced this a lot over the years and have gotten really good at it.
