This project has been a long time coming.   I know I should have done this 30 years ago; however, I was concerned more about a health issue and living long enough to raise my two sons, Matthew and Mark.  God has been so good to me to allow me to make beautiful music all these years with extremely talented people------Bill Murta, Scott Ayers, Bruce Wilkin, Jim Davis,  and of course, Larry Dalton, who has orchestrated and produced this CD.  My son, Matt, who is a Marine in the USMC, sings "The Prayer" with me.  I love hearing him sing more than anyone else-----that's the mother in me.  His brother, Mark, a chemical engineer, expressed the same sentiments.   God has blessed me with two wonderful sons and a sweet grandson, Kadin.  The songs I've chosen to record are some of my favorites I've learned through the years.  Scott Ayers arranged "Dwelling in Buelah Land" with Larry Dalton orchestrating it.   I hope you enjoy these "heart" songs.
