🎵 Nominated on June 18th, 2019! 🎵

Hooray! I’ve been nominated for the Top Ten Songs Tag by Keziah!! Thank you so much, Keziah! This is my first tag, which I think is some kind of award! (This is my tenth award!!! 🙂 ) Please visit and follow her at: https://keziahe.home.blog/ !!

The Rules For the Top Ten Songs Tag:

1. List your top ten songs in answer to the questions.
2. Hyperlink the songs if at all possible.
3. Tag as many people as you want.
4. Feel free to use my graphic or one of your own.
5. Have fun!!! 🙂

All right! It’s Q&A time!!!

What’s a soundtrack song you can’t help but sing along to?

The Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack song, “He’s a Pirate,” is, I think, quite cool!

What’s a song you love from a genre you don’t?

I don’t like horror (If that even is a music genre?? 🙂 ), but I love “Ghost Riders in the Sky”!! I like the ones by Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson (duet) and Christopher Lee (my favorite actor!).

What’s a song that makes you cry every time, without fail?

Like you, Keziah, I don’t cry when I listen to songs, but I am of course moved when I listen to Christian hymns and songs, especially “It is Well With My Soul.” Hymns are the world’s #1 important songs!!

What would be your theme song?

My theme song would be “Be Thou My Vision,” my favorite hymn.

What’s a song tied to a good memory?

A song that I liked when I was a youngster, a song that rang in the early mornings when I was living in a nostalgic neighborhood, was “Love is Blue” by Paul Mauriat. This song brought me to tears at that time. Every time I hear this song, I think about the ol’ neighborhood. I will never forget that neighborhood full of good memories.

If you’re a writer, what song best sums up your main character? If you don’t write…song for your favorite book’s main character?

“Be Thou My Vision” by Ron and Kelly best sums up one of the main characters from my favorite book, Bell Mountain, whose name is Jack. (Please click on the link, and it’s the 2nd song.)

What’s a song you always play on repeat?

“Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb / I’ll Fly Away” by Alan Jackson.

What’s the most convicting song you’ve heard?

“Our God is an Awesome God” by GLAD, my favorite Christian a cappella singing group.

What song reminds you most of your childhood?

I used to listen to Anthony Way a lot when I was a child, and the song he sings that I love is “The Lord’s Prayer.” (Please click on the link, and it’s the 2nd song.)

What’s your favorite song?

Wow. That’s a hard question! 🙂 There’s more than one answer, so I will make a list here: “Be Thou My Vision,” “El Condor Pasa,” “O Holy Night,” “We Three Kings,” “A Mighty Fortress is Our God”… and much more!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

What is one song that greatly exceeded your expectations?

Alan Jackson’s rendition of “Blessed Assurance” exceeded my expectations!

I will nominate this tag to…

Joah Gabriel, Lydia Potter, and Elisha McFarland!

Thanks again, Keziah! It was fun sharing my favorite songs!

An Answered Prayer, Plus Hymn Request

Amen! Praise the LORD!! Grandma and Aunty are now reading the Bible! Please continue to pray for their salvation!! 🙂

Lee Duigon

I’m hurrying to get this posted before Joshua goes to bed. I don’t know what time it is in Japan, but it’s either very late or very early. Oh, well, he can see it when he gets up again: Blessed Assurance, sung by Alan Jackson.

And on top of it, we’ve got some good news–an answered prayer.

On May 5 Joshua asked us to pray for his grandmother and aunt in Japan, who had heard of the Gospel but not yet received it. Today Joshua reports that both are now reading the Gospel of John–and may the Holy Spirit speak to them! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Liebster Award #2

3e6a6189-37a8-4cb8-ac90-d96ba68dae3e

WOW! Two Liebster Awards in one week! Isn’t that something? ( I was nominated this award on May 22nd, 2019.)

Thank you so much, Newblogger20, for nominating me for the Liebster Award!!! This is my third award. Please visit her blog: newblogger20.com!!

These are the rules:

  1. Show your gratitude to the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Post the award on your blog post.
  3. Answer the questions given to you by your nominator.
  4. Nominate 5 other bloggers.
  5. Ask 6 new questions to your nominees.
  6. Notify your nominees, giving them a link to your blog post in the comments.

Here are the questions from Newblogger20…

1. Why did you start blogging?

The reason why I started blogging is that so I can post some stories. I did that only at the beginning of my blog. The stories, especially the last four, are ridiculously long! I’ll be so happy if anyone would read them! https://joshuamakotoswanson.wordpress.com/2018/12/08/the-chronicles-of-numbskull-combined-edition/ And, er, they’re a bit ridiculous as well… Now, I post a variety of stuff, and I mostly reblog Christian bloggers posts because posts about Jesus have way more value. And also blogging is a good way to make friends. 😉

2. What’s your favourite blog?

I have quite a few favorite blogs, but my No. 1 favorite blog is Mr. Lee Duigon’s blog. I knew him through the Bell Mountain series, and I was interested in who he was, so I visited his blog. In June of 2018, I posted my first comment on Lee Duigon’s blog, that was the starting point of my blogging journey. Please visit his blog at leeduigon.com!! He recommended me to make this blog, for which I am very grateful! Please follow his blog, you will be glad you did!!

3. Cat person or dog person? 

I think I’m more a cat person than a dog person. Maybe mostly it’s because I like kittens! 😺 Of course I like dogs, too, but if I had to choose between a cat or dog for a pet, I would choose a cat, a kitten if possible. 🙂

4. If you could choose one food to live off for the rest of your life (and live no matter what its nutritional values are 😂), what would it be?

Ah, that’s a good question! Definitely my favorite food, taco rice! It’s a Mexican dish, which is taco meat, cheese, salsa sauce, avocado, and vegetables on rice. If you never ate this before, I really recommend that you should!

5. Do you have any pets? 

We used to have some pets, for example a hamster, some goldfish, and a dog, but now there are none… I wouldn’t mind having a cat someday! 🙂

6. Which song “speaks” to you the most?

Of course all hymns speak to me of the importance of loving the LORD, and I think the hymn that speaks to me the most is “It is Well With My Soul.” The background story of this hymn is sad, but the Godly Christian man who lost his loved ones in an accident wrote this hymn to praise God for whatever happens in his life, because God is in sovereign control. Christians have nothing to fear, because all is as the LORD wills it.

Here is the hymn…

Happy Mother’s Day! 💛😊

I ought to have posted this on real Mother’s Day, but as the saying goes, better late than never! 😊

I want to thank God for my mother.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Lord, for giving my brother and me a kind and loving mother, who loves us and takes care of us. Thank you for giving her to Dad to be his sweet and faithful wife. Please continue to bless her with many blessings for the rest of her life! In Jesus’ name, Amen!!

I’d like to post Mom’s favorite hymn, For the Beauty of the Earth.

To my mother, and to all the mothers in the world,

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!
