  1. I live in Lamar Missouri, the birthplace of Harry S Truman. It is beautiful this time of year, the corn is being picked, the lush dark green of soybeans and the warm colors of milo make for a quilted landscape. We live just a few miles from Kansas, not many more from the Oklahoma line and we can be in Arkansas in less than an hour.
  2. That's great caleb. Enjoy!!!!!!!
  3. caleb, Yes, Star Kindler, is the cd of Michael Card I was referring to. I have another album of his, can't at the moment remember the title, but one song on it is " Pray for the Greening of Belfast ". My ancestry is largely Irish-Scottish and that song holds meaning for me. One thing the Lord has ministered to me about is not bringing attention to myself while playing, someone else mentioned that in an earlier post. Sometimes when the piano is playing softly after a praise song, I used to be so nervous to play along, but as the Lord has dealt with me, I've stepped out and played along. With the Lord, there is always that first step, and then He helps you from there. I view the gift of playing the fiddle-violin as that, a gift from the Lord. I look at the congregation as His sheep, sometimes those sheep have had a rough hard week and need ministered too. One way they can be touched is through music, and I try and approach using the gift from that point of view, and just be His hand extended.
  4. The Lord never ceases to amaze me. This is the best thread ever on this site. Some of the songs I love to play at church; I Exalt Thee As The Deer Majesty One song I have been drawn to is "Lamb of God" by Twila Paris. On her Sanctuary cd there is a violin solo of that song. I have worked on that for several years. Michael Card has some great fiddle music on some of his albums. "We must decrease, so that He might increase " in other words the more of Him in our lifes, the less room there will be for us to get in the way. I have to tell you that I didn't think that there were this many believers on this site, wow, " He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we could think or ask " Life is Good
  5. toasty, You might check with Gordon McCann, he lives in Springfield Mo, if you call information you can get his number. Gordon will know about fiddlers in your area. Gordon has an extensive collection of old time fiddle recordings and is a gem of a man. Hope this helps.
  6. Yes I do, the years they fly by.
  7. Well caleb, Of all weekends, my cousin decided to come down for a visit, and I didn't get to go to Harrison. I was torn between being rude and going anyway, and treating him as I would want to be treated. I guess there's always next year.
  8. Our sympathy goes out to you on your loss. What a beautiful testament of a loving friendship. Thoughts and prayers, lineman
  9. I'm planning on going down Saturday, hope to see you there.
  10. Swan, It sounds like you are on the right track. Dealing with the truth is not always the easiest course of action to take, but in the end, having dealt truthfully with people, there will be a peace about it. Your friend deserves that, and so do you. lineman
  11. We work 10 hour days, only 4 per week , but I think being tired of an evening takes it's toll.

    I know TMJ! My wife suffered with it, and my daughter has suffered with it. My wife was in her mid 30's and wore braces for several years. My daughter had a tumor on her left jaw that caused her TMJ, she under went surgery last month at Baylor Unv, and hopefully her's will be taken care of. I know fighting insurance companies for months to get them to pay for it, I know the indescribable pain that it can cause, headaches, stiff necks, jaw popping. My advice would be to get to an orthodontist that specializes in TMJ, you will be money ahead. From experience lineman
  13. I use Prim strings, except for the E string which is a Gold Dominant, and I have fine tuners on all the strings. The Prims go well with my fiddle.
  14. Kim, Welcome, the people here will make you feel at home.
  15. I'm going to try and drive down on Saturday if all goes well.
