Then Sings My Soul – 1984 Edition

Mar 15

Well, friends, it’s that time again!  I know you’ve been waiting all week to see what song I would pick for Then Sings My Soul Saturday.  It’s a secret that has been kept under lock and key. (Or maybe I just picked it ten minutes ago.)  My song this week is…

I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

This song was tickled on the ivories as I walked down the aisle to give my heart to Jesus in 1984 – no, I’m not talking about George Orwell here.  It was June of 1984 in Stone Mountain, Georgia, and I was ten.  As you can imagine, this song holds a special place in my heart.  I picked a noteworthy You Tube video to go with my song.  It’s sung by Bill Gaither and his Homecoming Friends.  And by golly, here is the best part – I think the video of this song just might have been recorded the same year I walked that aisle, perhaps even the same night.  

Why, you ask?  How could I know such a thing?  Watch and see for yourself.  Friends, only the 80’s could provide such hair-do goodness as you will see in this video.  The puffy bangs and the perms.  I can just smell the White Rain.  

But, then again maybe this was the late 80’s.  Based on the mullets and the men’s attire, perhaps 1989 would be a better guess.  What do you think?  Want to join me for a little 80’s flash back?

Is that like so totally cool or what?
