Time--2017 A to Z Theme

My theme for the 2018 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is "Cleaning the Clutter"--I might literally be cleaning my closets or figuratively clearing the excess from some other part of my life. I'm sure you can think of other things this could mean for you as well.

Always a work in progress--welcome to my blog...

I Lived "My Church" This Past Sunday (#BOTB Results)






       I'm going to make this BOTB Results post short and to the point, though first I'd like to tell you about my Sunday.    I started out early from Marion Virginia which is in the southwest part of that state.  I spent hours driving through the mountain back routes, passing through Boone NC before heading back to Interstate 75 to Chattanooga TN and finally landing in Bessemer Alabama where I am as I write this post.

       Talk about worship and praising God from the seat of my van.  It was just like the song "My Church" talked about.  I saw some beautiful aspects of God's creation and got to my destination safely.   I felt like shouting "Hallelujah!" many times with a few "Amens!" now and then.  Sundays don't get much better than that one.

        Heading home soon.  It's been a great trip so far.

My Vote

         My previous battle was a showdown between Maren Morris and Home Free performing renditions of Maren's song "My Church".    My person favorite was Home Free because of the harmonizing.  A few agreed with me, but Maren handily ran away with the win.  Not what I expected, but often those outcomes aren't.

Final Vote Tally

Maren Morris      15 votes

Home Free              5 votes

Next Battle will be on Sunday July 15th

       I should be able to do this.  My plan is to stay with the "church" theme.  Kind of.  Maybe I should say "spiritual"--yeah, I guess that's what I'll say.

    1. Alex, to me travel confirms the glory of God's creation more than just about anything else. God's handiwork is amazing!

  2. I've been to Boone several times. One of my authors lives there. A beautiful area of NC.

    1. L.Diane, I hadn't been to Boone since high school and don't really remember it. Now I want to go back to spend at least a few days.

  3. Sounds like a great trip! Hope all goes well on the drive home. At least you didn't get a shutout on this battle. Maren was my choice, as well.

    1. Debbie D, I would have been surprised to see a shut-out, but Home Free had my vote so there would have been that.

  4. It was a good song, LEE, with two very good recordings of it. I sided with the VERY GREAT MINORITY in this Battle, which I really feel should have had a much closer outcome in terms of voting margin. But the one thing we can be sure of about 'Battle Of The Bands' is that we really can't be sure of anything.

    Stay safe, Brother, and I'll meet up with you again during the 7/15 rounds of BOTB.

    1. STMcC, I actually thought Home Free would win this one, but you know how that can go.

      Just another couple of Battles before I pull off what might be a big surprise. I hope it comes off as planned.

  5. I would love to 'free style' on the way back from Ohio in August and hit some states I haven't been to yet. I miss road tripping.

    1. JoJo, If I had the time and money I'd take off on some wild random ramblings. Maybe someday I'll do more of the road-tripping if things come together in the right way.

    1. Patricia, you all should plan a trip and just go! Even a short few day trip can make for a nice getaway and inspire you for more travels later.
