How About Your Heart?



this is one of my favourite songs by the blackwood brothers.
never will i forget the day several years ago now when james blackwood and his quartet came to welland to sing....i asked mr. blackwood before the concert started if they would sing "how about your heart?"...it is a very old hymn and mr. blackwood told me he might not remember the words!
after the intermission when the quartet returned to the stage to sing, how my heart filled with joy as james blackwood announced in a soft voice.."this song is by request", and they SANG it!
the words to this hymn are soul searching!

have a blessed lords day everybody.....love terry

Dear Terry,
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed listening to this old gospel hymn. It was one of my grandmother's favorites. She was blind and sat and listened to the Blackwood Bros. almost all day every day.

She lived in Memphis, TN and went to the Assembly of God that was the Blackwood Bros. home church. I saw them there and then saw them regularly, every few months or so, at the Robinson Auditorium in Little Rock, Ar.

What a treat dear friend. I lived in Little Rock but spent most of my Christmases growing up in Memphis so not only did it bring back great memories but brought them back at this Yuletide which made it extra special.

Thank you so much.
Love,
Dianne

Dear Terry,
I've never heard this hymn before. Must be one of the few who hasn't crossed th sea.
The second one was likewise unfamiliar.

You've certainly got some nerve, to sere requests to these Famous gospel singers. Then again, this is just what you are good at-. Being honest and outspoken to high and low.
I admire you for that.

I liked the brothers though, esp. the bass singer, he was something special.
Happy 4 th Sunday in Advent for you and yours.
