Chuck Girard: ‘Sometimes Alleluia’

Glorious, anointed, resting-in-God song from 1975 that I was blessed to experience as a young Christian! Christian music was awesome then, and will again be someday, when ‘ONE’ happens “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer in John 17)!

I was able to see Chuck a few years later, while attending the University of Minnesota — just him and a piano in the student union.

“Unmistakable background from Annie, Nell and Matthew.”

(music vid) Paul Clark: ‘Abide’ — “Your words are truth and life to me / It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide”

Abide (Paul Clark)

The more I go on with you Lord
I find that I cannot afford
To stay away from your side
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

Your words are truth and life to me
They cleanse and sanctify me
I know it’s power can’t be denied
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

A child of God I know I am
I’ve been washed in the precious blood of the Lamb
But I haven’t touched the hole in His side
But in the vine I’ll Abide

To bring forth fruit this is my aim
And give the glory to Your name
To do the same you must decide
If in the Vine you’ll Abide

Jesus is the Vine

4:00 Eyes: how essential and amazingly complex tears are!

8:00 Ears! How amazingly complex ears are!

Ear hairs are 72 times finer than regular hairs. They’re also like springs. When they snap from very loud sounds is when people lose their hearing.

Do You Make Decisions from Your Head or Your Heart? – Logic & Facts Vs Emotions

The heart is more than a pump, containing brain-like cells. Many emotions and decisions come from the heart, not the brain. So NEVER get a heart transplant!

It’s pretty easy to tell which type I am. How about you?

– –

Head-locators are categorized differently than heart-locators. Head-locators make decisions based on logic and facts whereas heart-locators make decisions based on their emotions. Do you think from your head or your heart?

2019 Record Warm Year for Anchorage, Alaska – 5 warmest years occurred in last 6 years

I remember the cold ’81-82 winter well, working the planes outside at Anchorage International in a string of below -20°F nights. One night was -33°F. But the previous winter, my first in Alaska, had a melting spell, like ours yesterday, but longer.

Anchorage’s winter temps are much warmer than interior Alaska’s because of the ocean’s warming affect.

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) – 2019 will enter the books as the warmest year on record for Anchorage. The average temperature for the year is 42.5 degrees Fahrenheit. The previous “warmest year” was 2016 with an average temperature of 41.9F. In fact, the five warmest years for Anchorage have occurred in the past six years. The records for Anchorage go back to 1954. …

Anchorage had a record year overall, breaking the all-time record high on July 4 by hitting 90 degrees. The previous record had been 85 degrees set on June 14, 1969. Continue reading “2019 Record Warm Year for Anchorage, Alaska – 5 warmest years occurred in last 6 years”
