{ SONday Morning - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus }

I remember the first time I heard this was in the church I grew up in and there was a lady from a neighboring church who came to sing for us. When she sang this song, oh how the lyrics just touched my soul. When I went to YouTube to look it up this morning, the very first one that popped up was this version by Alan Jackson - now I don't believe in coincidences but I do think that the good Lord lets things happen for a specific reason, whether we even know what that reason might be. Before I decided to post today and share this song, I had just typed up a letter to our sponsor child in Guatemala - whose name 'just happens' to be Alan.  And, I had told Pappy on Friday as we were leaving Arby's and a song by Alan Jackson was playing how much I loved to hear him sing.

Do I know why all of this seems to be linked together?


Maybe it's just to make my 💜 happy!

HPE your SONday is full of blessings!


  1. God knows just how to bless us when we need it most! I love all His little "coincidences" that are really just love blessings to His precious children. Welcome back to blogging. Your voice is needed here in blogland. Have a blessed and beautiful SONday. BTW, we sing that song every Sunday morning as they light the candles. A very precious moment of worship for me.

  2. I agree with Pamela. I have missed your blogging, Deb. smiles

  3. I love the words to this wonderful old hymn. Yes, we should always turn our eyes to Him that loves us. Amen and Amen

  4. God is always amazing! Alan Jackson can sure sing those old gospel songs!


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
