Clearing to the West

We can begin to see the clearing of some of the clutter in our lives.  We've spent a good deal of the past six months taking care of  Dad's affairs, after his passing.  His affairs were actually in pretty good order, it just takes time to deal with the details.  Last week there was an estate sale and now the house is on the market.  That will close the largest chapter in the events following Dad's death.  I honestly could not have gotten through any of this without my wife.  Her understanding of financial issues and her organizational skills kept me sane.  Without her, I would have been LOST.  Thank you Lord, for the gift of a wife that you have blessed me with.
Next Friday we will take in night one of the new Brumley Music Fest in Bentonville, AR.  One of the groups appearing will be the Dove Brothers.  They are a pretty traditional Southern Gospel Quartet.  That's okay with me.  Here is a sample of their work.  enjoy.


  1. I'm glad you are seeing the light at the end of a very long tunnel. I'm happy you have a wonderful wife too. It's important to have a good helpmate and that goes both ways.

    Although I didn't live in the south this is the kind of gospel music I grew up listening to.

    Have a terrific day and weekend ahead. Big hug to you and your dear wife. :)

  3. Very dramatic clouds. The title, "Clearing in the West" seems to symbolize the clearing up and otherwise taking care of your dad's affairs. I'm sorry to hear of your dad's passing. May God continue to comfort you.
