My Guitar-Playing Dad

I mentioned that I'd upload a video of Dad and me singing the duet last Sunday night, but unfortunately it is too large to upload to this blog. So, since that didn't work out, I am going to try another. This video shows Dad playing his acoustic guitar on his birthday, October 2, about 6 weeks prior to his stroke. He mentioned just before he played that he's "a bit rusty" because his fingers have lost their callouses. Maybe true, but his rusty is pretty good, don't you agree?
On a very happy note, :) Dad can still play just as well now, even after the stroke. We are so grateful for this!


  1. Thanks for taking the time to "blog". I remember so well how your dad played and it is a joy to know that he has improved in health so much in the past few weeks. We will remember him on Jan 26th and the rest of you, also.

  2. Praise the Lord! Sometimes the progress is slow. It is God's time...not our time. God will give the patience and endurance for all of you!

    Praying for you all.

    Love ya,

    What great times we had when you and mom and dad were inb Louisville Ky for revivals. I* will never forget those days. The God we served in days ago is still the same God of today. n Hold on know we are praying daily for you and mom and dad. I really enjoy the blog and the pictures, You really have not changed that much. I still remember the night you stood by your dad and sang For God so Loved The World. He still loves us. We will continue to lift you three to the father, he never sleeps, he is always there rain or shine winter or spring. We love all of you. God is in control and he WILL take care of DAD

  4. Although I don't know your dad, it was a blessing to see him play. To see the joy on his face when he uses the gifts God has given him even at his age is awe-inspiring. He's rusty, but he's still better than me! :) Praying for you and your family.

    Your Dad taught me some guitar on an used guitar that did not exactly work - but my son has now extended the gift

    please thank him for me and let him know we are thinking of you and your family.
