Magaly's Citizenship And A Brief History Of The Doxoblogist

As you may have noticed already by my comments on this blog, I'm back. The citizenship ceremony went great and Magaly is very happy to have gotten through the whole process, from fianceƃ© visa, to resident, to permanent resident, and finally to citizen.

She commented on the other post, in case you missed it,
"Thank you fellow citizens!
I am proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free and I won't forget the men who died to give that right to me."
Funny stuff.
Thanks for all of your comments and support.

How 'bout that Steve Green? Good articles, right? It is always refreshing to see someone more articulate than I say the things that I try to say.
I've never really met Steve Green, unless you count a couple of minutes at the end of a concert, but his music has been a big part of my life since my teen years. I don't know what kind of Christian I would be had God not placed this music in my path in those formative years.
I had never heard music about God until I heard, The Symphony of Praise. Suddenly the world made sense. We had always sang songs about God in the churches I grew up in, but the songsthat actuallyy stuck out to me were the songs about me and how great it was that I had a 'friend'. It never occurred to me that I had a God! Shortly after this I heard R. C. Sproul's teaching series on the Holiness of God. Then I read The Pleasures of God by Piper. Add that to the godly heritage of growing up in the home of a preacher who had grown up in the home of a preacher, and the influence of my brother/pastor, and there I am.

If you don't like the way I turned out, blame them. I don't know anything that wasn't taught to me by one of those five men of God.

Soli Deo Gloria!!!

Why would anyone not like the way you turned out?

Why have you been turned out?

I enjoyed reading the Steve Green things. He has been my music ministry "idol" for many years.

Wow, you have a very godly heritage. That is something that you are very blessed to have had.

I love Steve Green also. He sang that great song when he was here last fall. He had many projections of creation on a big screen behind him while he sang it ... really neat!

Then there were those songs in Spanish ...
