Gospel Music Roundup: Happy Mother’s Day


Where would we be without them? Most certainly, not born.

And, while there may certainly be some strained relationships out there, I think that anyone who went through that kind of pain and agony for my sake is, well, OK in my book!

God placed mothers in our lives for so many reasons, and I think this special presentation by Dave Berland says it all::

This Mother’s Day Edition of Gospel Music Roundup

is in direct appreciation for Mom.

Always there when we fall

Ready to pick us up or steer us clear of troube.

They feed us, clothe us, protect us,

They feel our pain when we hurt,

and always seem to know what’s best for us.

Mothers are ALWAYS RIGHT:

Even if you disagree, you know they are.

I recall in the Film, “The passion of the Christ”

the scene where the young Jesus trips and falls

And it was Mama who came running to hold him.

More power than ten thousand angels…

More love than mere man can fathom.

Our comforter when we sorrow,

our nurse when we are injured

Our protector when the world comes against us.

And finally, at that dreadful moment when they must


Their concerns are not for themselves, but for those

they leave behind.


Emissaries of our Lord,

Our Savior and our King.

Used mightily of Him,

Yet seem to be so successfully clandestine

That we never fully realize how much they are there

Until they aren’t there anymore.

Take the time to hug your Mama today

even if it’s just over the phone.

If she has gone on ahead of you

take the necessary steps

to ensure you see her again on the other side.

It’s what she would have wanted,

And you know, she’s always right!

Gospel Music Roundup sends out our prayers and thoughts to to Victims of the MAY 10 Tornado that hit OKLAHOMA, KANSAS and MISSOURI. You are not only close to my own home, but near and dear to my heart as well. These storms hit during the midst of recording this episode. Only after the clouds cleared and the power return did I learn what happened. My prayers go out for you all.

    again a wonderful Pod cast that this time not only brings Glory to our wonderful Lord and Savior – but also brings praise and thanks to the people that are so special to all of us – Our Mothers. Thank you again for allowing us – the singers and songwriters – to express out love in song for both.. Ya Gotta Love It!!!
