“21 Years”

This is Toby Mac’s new song honoring the memory of Truett Foster McKeehan, his firstborn son. Truett died unexpectedly on October 23, 2019. It’s still so heartbreaking, and I can’t even imagine what it’s like lose a child. This is such a beautiful tribute…

21 Years’ is a song I wrote about the recent passing of my firstborn son, Truett Foster McKeehan. I loved him with all my heart. Until something in life hits you this hard, you never know how you will handle it. I am thankful that I have been surrounded by love, starting with God’s and extending to community near and far that have walked with us and carried us every day. Writing this song felt like an honest confession of the questions, pain, anger, doubt, mercy and promise that describes the journey I’m probably only beginning. The rest is yet to come. One thing I know is that I am not alone. God didn’t promise us a life of no pain or even tragic death, but He did promise He would never leave us or forsake us. And I’m holding dearly to that promise for my son as well as myself.

Happy Holidays with Bing and Frank

Christmastime is my favorite time of the year and wouldn’t be complete without classic Christmas music. I grew up listening to an abundance of music from the 30s, 40s, and 50s thanks to my grandparents. Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby remain two of my personal favorites. Here’s a wonderful video featuring traditional Christmas songs with both singers. I believe this special aired in 1957.

Sawyer Brown “The Walk”

I just finished the third book in The Noel Collection series by Richard Paul Evans. In the book, one of the main characters spent time in the Vietnam War which jogged my memory for today’s song. Ironically, Richard Paul Evans also wrote The Walk Series which has no connection, but it shares the same title for today’s song as well. Anyway…this is one of my favorites. I forgot how much impact this video had on me the first time I watched it in the early 90s. Hope you enjoy.

A Treasury of Christmas Miracles

My thoughts:

Joyful, inspiring, and full of hope–A Treasury of Christmas Miracles is a compilation of about fourteen true stories where people were blessed with a miracle, many connected to Christmastime.

“Unfortunately we live with a sense of urgency for all the wrong reasons. Perhaps our time would be better spent looking for the miracles that so clearly exist around us. Especially during the Christmas season.”
