A Little Bit of Southern Gospel News

Hey neighbors,

You may or may not know, but my family enjoys Southern Gospel Music.  We have a few favorites and there are a couple of groups we consider friends.  So from now on I will occasionally be posting about things going on in the Southern Gospel world.

First I wanted to share some news from Wilburn and Wilburn.  They have a song titled You Asked Him to Leave that has become a favorite of mine.  I first heard it right after the National Quartet Convention.  I would love for you to take a moment to listen to the words to this song.

This song was recently removed from one radio station because one person complained.  It really concerns me how everyone has become so afraid of offending anyone, that we immediately change things just because of one or two people complaining.  Where is the Christian who is going to take a stand and say, "Right is right and wrong is wrong."?

I also wanted to share a news release from AG about some of their top songs of 2015.  Take a look!

Nashville, Tennessee (January 11, 2016) Absolutely Gospel Music Radio Chart, the most recognized weekly radio chart in Southern Gospel Music, released its Absolutely Gospel Music Top 100 Songs of the Year with 21 on the list represented by AG Publicity.

Do I listen to all these artists?  No, but I did want to share this list with you!  Enjoy and have a blessed day!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
