Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #3

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo 2014-10-25_zpsrapqkqpo-1.jpg


Today is Palm Sunday - please take time to read Matthew 21:1-11



Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
The author & composer of the featured Chorus Hymn is Anne Herring was born in 1945 & is considered a pioneer in the "Jesus Music" of the 1960's.

Please take time to  listen to the YouTube videos below the lyrics (the lyrics in this video are a little bit different than listed below - sung by Keith Green) .

"The angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here;  he has risen, just as he said.  Come and see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples;  He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him.'  Now I have told you."  Matthew 28:5-7


Easter Song
words & music by Anne Herring
(Chorus)
Hear the bells ringing, they're singing that we can be born again ________________

Hear the bells ringing, they're singing "Christ is risen from the dead."_____________
The angel up on the tombstone said "He is risen just as He said: Quickly now, go tell His disciples that Jesus Christ is no longer dead!"
Joy to the world, He is risen, alleluia, He's risen, alleluia;  He's risen, alleluia!___Alleluia! 

Repeat Chorus

365 Days of Being THANKFUL - DAY#123

by AngieOuelletteTower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo Thankful_zpsd6bc7c2d.jpg
A few months ago I decided that I would start a new series on this blog called: "365 Days of Being THANKFUL".  The more I thought about it the more I felt led by God but then at the same time I started wondering if I would be able to do this for a whole year!  One month of being thankful is measurable let alone hundreds of days!
So, I am now 1/3 of the way through my challenge - I must be able to find something each day that I am thankful for since I am so blessed.

HAPPY FACE NECKLACE

Toothless, Large Hand Drilled Lake Superior Sandstone Pendant on Silver Link Chain with Custard Milk Glass Trade Beads, Novelty Necklace
Grin and bear it! This is a "cheeky" pardon the pun, fun kind of a necklace. This flat, roundish, lovely bisque color sandstone is one I found in Lake Superior. It asked to become a happy face - though be it a toothless one! I have given her 5 mm eyes and a toothless grin.
I have hand drilled her top side and fitted her with a stainless steel jumpring to dangle from a sparkly silver link chain, complete with sterling silver lobster clasp, which has 5 of her missing "teeth" strung along side! The "teeth" are lovely custard color (or un-whitened teeth colored) glass trade beads.  The chain undone end to end is a long 29 inches, and as fastened hanging down including stone will hang 16.5 inches. The stone face is about 2 inches around. Smile!

EGGScellent Easter Ideas

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo 2014-03-17_zps56oakxzw.jpg


EGGScellent Easter Ideas


I have always enjoyed decorating eggs for Easter.  Even now that I'm in my 40's I always use the excuse of showing my twin nieces how to decorate eggs - but secretly I just enjoy decorating eggs.  The German tradition of the Osterstrauch (Easter Egg Tree) is a tradition that both my sister and I have continued on into adulthood.  The following ideas are my original creations using both hollowed out eggs and hardboiled eggs for eating.


Please click on each title below to see the entire post & ENJOY!
