Just started my first fire of the year (except for early winter in Jan/Feb). I love YouTube for great music video's. Got it on AXS.TV ... which I also love ... especially for old Concert footage and interviews. Anyway ... I'm watching Matchbox 20 ... who I've heard of ... but never seen or listened to. Oh my ... I like what I'm seeing so far. I have it paused currently so I could post. Gotta get back ... pizza in the oven ... cool air, wind and rain outside ... warm with a fire inside and, until now, undiscovered music. God Bless All.
Good NewsThis page is all about good news ... not dulcimers! If you've followed my "Latest News" ... "New Latest News" , etc. from a few years back this is really just a continuation of that process. I've spent the last 40 years designing, building, playing, recording and performing on Hammered Dulcimers. I have been blessed and I am eternally grateful. This page, however, is about a much more important relationship ... than the one I have with my work. I walk ... up the mountain here where I live ... at any hour of the day or night. I've been doing it for years. It can be very scary ... in the middle of the night ... on a moonless night ... with no light save for the tiny flashlight in my pocket. Why do I do that? Because I have sought to know my Father for as far back as I can remember. He tells me "walk by faith." Am I tempting Him? Am I entreating Him?
So ... these words are a direct result of my times alone ... with our Father ... who is faithful and true. I post here when I cannot keep silent. I don't strive to write here. I write here because I have a greater love than dulcimers. My hope is that this testimony might encourage you to ... walk ... even when it's scary ... with our Father. He is, most certainly, faithful ... and true. In Him Alone (but one servant) Jerry Read Smith. One more thing ... the most recent posts will be at the bottom of the page!
