Our "other son!"

My Sweet Hubby and I listen to contemporary Christian music exclusively and have for years. It uplifts us and we just love to praise the Lord with song!

There is one artist that struck a cord with us several years ago...we had an opportunity to chit chat with him at a recent event and he was such a God filled, wonderful young man. He cruised with us on the K-LOVE Friends and Family cruise in 2006. He has written songs for some of the biggest "names" in the Christian music industry but you'd never know it because you'll never hear that from him. But the other artists sure speak highly of him! His Mom and Dad must be so proud of him! (They are - we saw it on their faces on the cruise!) And he has the sweetest wife and baby girl!

Anyway, my Sweet Hubby and I have jokingly taken to calling him "our other son Matthew." When one of his songs comes on the radio we say, "There's our other son, Matthew!"

I heard this song well before it was released. And absolutely loved what it said. So, for today's Music Monday selection I would like to introduce you to "our other son" - Matthew West!

You Are Everything ~ Matthew West

And because it's a beautiful, sunshiney morning - how about a "two fer?" Here's another Matthew song about the gift of God's grace. Isn't grace a wonderful thing? Where would we be without it?

Only Grace ~ Matthew West

For the law was given by Moses. But grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:17
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not from yourselves -- it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

I pray that you all have a week where you know that you are held in the hollow of God's Almighty Hand. And that you know His grace is nothing you have earned - could EVER earn. It is a precious gift He gives freely through his Beloved Son, Jesus.

GRACE: God's Redemption At Christ's Expense
