Songs my Mother taught me # 1


The idea to this blog theme came from Mrs. Mac. She's a Unikum in so many ways, especially what household, cooking, gardening, nature, education and other crafts are concerned.Often, when reading her articles, I remember, this is how my mother used to do it.
I've decided, my Mom's skills are too many and too special to be forgotten, so I've set out to make some posts to honor her.
Most of the pictures in these blogs are made by husband Gunnar, daughter Serina or myself.
This picture is taken in the home where I grew up and my mother lived till 9 months before she died, December 13th 2012.
I'm holding her hand written songbook, where her Christian songs were written down. She used to sing and play guitar in the church choir from the age of 14.
Here's one of her favorites.

What a perfect idea to dedicate loving posts to your mom showcasing her gifts and talents. I've never heard the song you posted. I very much enjoyed it. Love the picture of the two of you together.

Oh my! I haven't heard that one in years! We sang that in my church when I was a girl!

Tell me the story of Jesus, write on my heart every word; tell me the story of Jesus, sweetest that ever was heard.

Oh, how I have loved that song over the years! What a lovely post and what an excellent way to honor your precious mother.

you had a faithful mother my dear friend and her faithfulness and dad ljung's have been passed to the third generation

"18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:

how you must be missing them both felisol......love terry
