Voilà! The Good List – April 2019

Voilà! The Good List – April 2019

All of these things are rocking my world right now, and I can’t wait to tell you about them! Did you know Steven Curtis Chapman has a BLUEGRASS album?!?  And it’s GOOD!  I’ve played it on repeat this week.  Some of the tracks are his earlier works that he’s spun in a bluegrass direction.  Some are old hymns.  Check out the new ending to “Cinderella!”  (Makes my heart so happy!)  My faves:  “My Redeemer Is Faithful and True” and “How…

Currently – April 2019

Each month I link up with Anne’s Currently challenge.  She provides five prompts, and participants share what they’re currently doing relative to those prompts.  I enjoy writing these, and I hope you enjoy reading them!  It’s fun to see how everyone interprets the prompts and replies to them. This month’s prompts are experiencing, appreciating, wish listing, posting, and considering.  I am CURRENTLY… experiencing spring in Georgia, both the good and the bad of it!  There’s nothing like all the shades…
