Meet Brother Sam. Let me tell you what he knows for sure that I have wondered about for a long time in my life.

 

Growing up in Church, the son of a preacher one hears lots of songs, sung by different folks. Some have a different melody, and different arrangement. But then you have some that never seem to change. it didn’t matter who was doing the song, they all sang it the same way. Tonight as I watched and heard Brother Sam performing the words of this song came to mind, while the answer came to my to my heart.

How can I say thanks

for the things you have done for me

Things so undeserved

Yet you gave to prove your love for me

The voices of a million angels

Cannot express my gratitude

All that I am or ever hope to be

I owe it all to Thee

“How can I say Thanks”, when the worst of things happen, and then you find the so talked about rainbow at the end of the storm. Then what. How do you really express a thank you, or in reality what is one to do.

Brother Sam is an 80 plus year old youngster. Who less than 4 months underwent a quintuplet coronary bypass. (that’s 5. I have to use up my big words somewhere). And here he is Standing, for a 35 min concert, and laughing, bopping to the rhythm, and simply living and enjoying life.

This is how one says Thanks to one that gives us peace, power, love, and simply everything else that comes to mind.

So thank you brother Sam, for the smiles, and songs. And if you’re ever in Lexington, KY stop in at the church, he might sing you a verse or two to brighten your day as well.

So as the writer of this ever so inspirational song wrote: To God be The Glory! Give it a listen the link is there in the words.
