Fanning the Spiritual Flame

I read a post by Craig Groeschel, the pastor at, about getting out of a rut in your spiritual life. We all go through down times in our walk with Christ and we need a way to jump-start our passion again. Read this article,  Fanning the Spiritual Flame, and see if it doesn’t make a difference.

    I liked one Fergie and Timbaland song like 6 months ago! Are you sure we have been married 8 years? Do you even know who I enjoy listening to Mr Bauer?

    Hard to beat Buffett in December. I think it appeals to the escapist in all of us. My favorite Buffett song? Pretty much everything from A white Sportcoat all the way thru One Particular Harbour. If you really pushed me I guess I would say The Wino and I Know and He Went to Paris… and the the whole A1A album.
    I gotta say though if you are going to listen to a lot of Buffett on your trip you need to try to squeeze in a quick reread of Tales From Margaritaville. At least hit your faves. The Pascagoula Run, The Swamp Creature Let One In, a few others.
    Road trip songs I recommend? Hmmm. White Freightliner Blues by Townes van Zandt, London Homesick Blues by Jerry Jeff Walker. Neither of which are taditional blues songs. You want real blues? Try Howlin’ Wolf the London Sessions or Fleetwood Mac in Chicago 1969.
    Diveristy is the key to a good road trip mix. I like to jump from one type of music to another. Throw in a little jazz. I like Dave Brubeck’s Time Out. then switch toatally and go country. I lke Jr.Brown, Kelly Willis, the Derailurs, BR549, anything not top 40.
    But really as long As I keep mixing it up I can listen to just about anything opera. Now you’ve got me all excited I going to blow the dust off some stuff I haven’t listened to in a while.

    What I meant was anything BUT opera…. man that submit button will get you if you aren’t careful.

    Can’t believe I forgot to mention Buddy Holly. EVERYBODY should listen to Buddy Holly. Then mix it up and have a taste of big band, Glenn Miller or Benny Goodman, then some blue collar rock and roll like Bob Segar and then a little Sinatra and then some 80’s like Duran Duran. I like music. South Carolina bands like the Blue Dogs. This is my last comment I promise I’m cutting it off. I could go on and on about music… and food. And the pairing of music and food. You really got me fired up Roy…

  5. Roy says:

    John, thanks for the advice. I will have to look at some of these before I go. There is nothing like ’80’s music. Duran Duran, those were the days. Bob Segar can’t be beat either. But how about Alabama, CCR, Steve Miller Band, Lynnyrd Skynnyrd and my local favorite, Cowboy Mouth. They aren’t from Columbia, but I saw them here 3 times in 5 points. I’ve also always liked Drivin n Cryin.

    Keep em coming.
