As Martin Luther observed, music is quite a treasure. Can you imagine the world without it? I'm so glad God gave us that gift. And He even sings over us, as He tells us in Zephaniah 3:17. What an amazing thought!

Music is such a uniting force, too. At Homecoming concerts, many of us are from different countries, different walks of life, different church denominations and perhaps with varying opinions on many subjects. But when we all join together with the Homecoming friends in song, don't those differences, as well as our troubles, seem to fade for the moment? What a sweet thing it is to worship together with other believers.

A thought from the Word...

Psalm 30:4
Sing praises to the LORD, O you His saints, and give thanks to His holy name. 

Speaking of the gift of music, we wish you all could have been there for the Gaither Vocal Band DVD taping last week, held at Joey+Rory's barn/studio. What a special night, and we know you'll love the DVD when it releases in March! The Vocal Band was joined by the Isaacs, the Nelons, Goodman Revival, Buddy Greene, the Martins, Voices of Lee and others. Click here to read more and see some pics!
Not only can the lady sing, she can cook! Reba Rambo-McGuire shares two recipes that sound perfect for these brisk autumn days. Invite some family or friends over, and make a pot of her White Chicken Chili with some Texas Cornbread on the side ...yum! Thanks, Reba!
