Here all along

So far I haven't come across any distinct identification of a target audience for this song, but with the way the lyrics go it sounds appropriate for the backslidden. Ok, I haven't been to church in awhile but I don't think I'm gonna say I'm coming back because I've never been away, just lagging behind church attendance. The world to me hasn't gone upside down. Anyway, the graphics are scenic, and the message lovely.

It's interesting because Jesus is always there. We're the ones who can tend to wander. Great message and song. Happy TSMSS!

Thank you for sharing with us this beautiful message in song. I have undergone a lot of trials since coming to the U.S. Life is not easy being away from home but am glad I have a loving Father who is just a prayer away.

This song will remind us that there is no other rest that Jesus alone.. He is the Only One who could give us the real satisfaction and it's not the glory of the world..

Blessings Hazel...Going back to Jesus has a wonderful message...and this was so beautifully sung and done! HE IS always there so it just takes us turning our hearts towards Him & making Him as important as HE made us when He gave His need a good church that makes you want to be there and keep coming back...I pray that you find it soon & feel that welcome home of His loving arms! I'm sure you are not backslidden just slowing fading and you need His fire...hope you enJOY TSMSS & the songs feed your spirit!

I think at one time or another we all tend to "wander" comforting to know He doesn't and His always there the same yesterday, today and always...Blessings to you, Debbie

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
