  1. Penny,

    Thanks for your list of songs. I am disappointed about Mikeschair as they used to have a great official video on YouTube for Let the Waters Rise. I guess that since Mikeschair disbande last year that they must have taken it off of you tube. That song carried me through 2010 when I was having health problems and they had thought that my cancer had come back. It had not, but I did have a surgery that went all wrong instead. I loved that video a lot!

    Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Debbie,
      I’m glad the list of songs blessed you. I, too, was disappointed at the lack of the official video for Let the Waters Rise. Such a powerful song! Praising God with you that your cancer did not come back. So sorry to hear that you ended up having a surgery that went wrong. How is your back now? Committing to praying for a full recovery for you.
