Something else I've done while being confined... I started a blog site in memory of my dad and his music! Wow! This is something my family has wanted to do for a long time... Well, not the blog per se, but to somehow let people in on the blessings and share a little about my dad and his passions... God, Family and Music. The blogsite was really my idea, but the Songbook "Each Day Is Full of Miracles" was a vision that the entire Barker family has only dreamed of. And that dream is finally coming to life. The songbook is almost ready to go to print, and then I can announce the price and order info on dad's blog: fredsnewlifesongs.wordpress.com and all those that are interested, can order one. I've seen it, and trust me when I say, it's beautiful. Dad's songs are such an inspiration of the life he lived, and his love for the Lord. I'm so thrilled that we can now share them with everyone. I'm attaching the link to my own personal blog (www.ptorresponders.blogspot.com) so you can connect.
So even though this last month has been hard, and challenging, its also been rewarding. School also is starting back for me in a week, and this will be the last leg of my educational journey. I will soon be receiving my Bachelors degree in Applied Business Management from Grand Canyon University. I'm excited to take this last tour with this school. University of Phoenix was very very good to me, and I completed more than half of my credits from their. I just needed a change, and the opportunity arose, so I took it. I will keep you posted as I go so you can cheer me on when the going gets rough. I often think of the verse that says "The Lord is an ever present help in times of trouble..." Boy isn't that the truth... So much trouble has happened over the last several weeks, but I believe this little quote to be true: "Sometimes God allows what He hates, to accomplish what He loves." Isn't that the truth?
