CCM–Gotta Start Diggin’ It Back Out

July 3, 2008 at 3:50 pm 3 comments

If you are like me, you have no memory of rock music in the 80s.  I made my point to CCM during that time.  I read this post by Mark Lee (of Third Day) today and I it compelled me to go dig out some old TAPES for my kids to hear!

Read through the comments and tell me who YOU’D forgotten about from the 80s zone that made you go, “Oh yeah!  I loved that!  I forget about that!”

    For me, my CCM introduction was Sandi Patty (only then she was “Sandi Patti”). I had ever record, then ever tape. I have to say that “We Shall Behold Him” was the powerful song I had ever heard at that time. I saw her in concert a couple of times and it was awesome.

    Others of note were Steve Green, Larnell Harris and Take 6. I’d had to go back and really think about it to remember others.

    Fun challenge!

    OH yeah! Good ones! Our first “spark” was at a Larnelle Harris concert during the song “I Miss My Time with You” after he’d gone back to college! He put his arm around me…and I knew I wasn’t imagining the interest. I. Thought. I’d. Die!

    LOVED “There is a Mighty Spirit” he opened with at one concert. I was wanting to hear it so badly, my Mom called their production company to see if she could get me a copy. They didn’t, but mailed her a copy they had themselves of it!

    LOVED Take 6! I remember recording a bunch of their stuff off the radio (shhh!).

    I did not know Sandy changed the spelling of her name. Learn something new every day.

    What else ya got for me?

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
