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?
I'm one sassy southern Mama who loves Jesus and isn't afraid to shout it. My passions are Jesus, my husband, my kids, and chocolate. I'm a teacher turned Christian writer. Ask me why I love Jesus and be prepared to sit a spell.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul, but don't forget to love your neighbor as yourself. I am a firm believer that we can change the world one person at a time - by being Christ with the skin on to those who are in need.
