King Praising King

Our new addition, Luke James, is almost 2 months old (already!), and he loves music.  While I sit cuddling, feeding, and playing with him, I’ve been perusing youtube.com looking for music for us to enjoy together.  Being the time of year that it is, we’ve really been appreciating Christmas tunes, especially Martina McBride and Celine Dion’s versions of O Holy Night.  How I love to sit with my little Luke and think about what the lyrics of these songs REALLY mean!  I’ve also been especially appreciative of Elvis’ gospel songs and praise music lately.  My favorites are “How Great Thou Art” and “Put Your Hand in the Hand”.  Today it came to my attention that my friend’s dad composed a praise song for Elvis and sang backup for the track with his music group, The Imperials!  How cool is that!  Thanks to Amanda who shared her dad’s talent on this song, “If the Lord Wasn’t Walking by My Side”:

    HOW FUN IS THAT! To know someone who has a connection to E! I think I have come to appreciate Elvis’ gospel music more than his mainstream. I like Put Your Hand in the Hand. Did you know that he played a doctor (almost said a priest but I knew that was wrong) in his last movie “Change of Habit” Mary Tyler Moore played a nun.

    Still think it is awesome that the only Grammys he received were for his gospel music.

    Pun intended in the title of the movie.
