Please read...

PLEASE READ.




"Go Rest High on the Mountain" (Was gonna post the YouTube link with Vince Gill singing this at the Grand Ole Opry for George's funeral, but it was taken down)

I fail daily. We ALL fail daily. George Jones loved his women and booze...........but he loved his Creator as well. I just saw this clip and sobbed. I had 'heard' this song before, never knew the words (only the chorus) but loved the melody I felt. Listening to this today and understanding each lyric broke my heart.

EVERYONE on my page, please take the time to listen to this song......take time to think on it. God loves us. All of us. I have many friends and family who aren't aware of that. I have many who think that being a 'Christian' means sitting around, holding hands, leading a perfect life, and singing "Kumbaya". It's far from that, and yet envelops so much more as well. Do I strive to be a good person? Yes. Do I succeed? Not as often as I'd like. Life can be hard, people can be cruel, bad things happen.............but there is always a reason to go on. George Jones may not have been a role model in many ways.....but I guarantee you he touched many because he didn't throw stones. I can only hope that my time on Earth is well spent. I want to go to my grave worn completely out and having used all that He gave me. I want to be that person without judgement. I want to love those in my life with all I have. I want to sit and watch my children, spend as much time with them as possible, not miss the moments that make me smile. I want to be a vessel to help others. I want ALL that He has for me.

You should and can too. This is for someone, maybe many. Ultimately, we'd all like to enter heaven hearing Him say

'Go rest high on that mountain,
'Cause, Son, your work on earth is done'

  1. Sarah -- I stumbled across you on that ad, looked you up on youtube, then came here. I am SO HAPPY to learn that you are a Christian! I love everything about this -- it sounds like God scheduled your whole life just so you could be this huge beacon of hope and a light for Christ! It's like the guy Jesus gets in trouble for healing of blindness -- people asked Jesus, "Who sinned, this man or his parents?" And Jesus said, "No one. He was born so that I could be glorified." I pray that you will always continue to live in the light of Christ. You are awesome!

  2. Hey I saw the Wells Fargo commercial and was intrigued! Then I found the video on youtube. I was wondering do you have a church home? How long have you been a Christian? :)

  3. I have watched your youtube videos more times than I care to count in the last few years. It is hands-down one of my favorite videos of all time and it always makes me smile. Only today did I stumble across your blog (as well as your appearance on Ellen and superbowl commercials!), but it is SO great to find out that you are a sister in Christ as well. You have been placed in a wonderful position to be a light in a dark world and I hope that you take every opportunity God gives you to shine for Him. God bless you and your beautiful family!
