Rosenberg ever since the Cold War American family radio, the Spiros artificers hope as a family. Those of you are putting yourself voluntarily, willingly and knowingly submitting this impairment in even worse disaster right you hold what gets you through the day. What strengthens you. This is that the danger of our show nothing else out there on the air and I'm bringing you 35 years of experience to help you stay strong and healthy as you care for someone who is not to be a part of the show. 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 if you want to be a part of the show today were to talk about a topic that is near and dear to me those you would listen for a while know this.

It's music it is the power of music. It is the the healing properties of music or what it does for us. And if you have a song that is meaningful to you. It doesn't have to be sacred song. It doesn't have to be him. It doesn't have to be in just be whatever song that is meaningful to you as a caregiver that that you listen to most of us, though, that have been doing this for some time usually find a hymn that has meant something to us, but if you have a song that is is strengthening to you comforting to you that you know it was something that may be listen to for the last time was someone that you cared for whatever whatever stories behind that song. I love you share with us this very specific reason want to do this today.

888-589-8840 if you have a particular song if I could play it. I'll try to play for you if if I can't will just will muddle through, but I'd like to hear the story behind why this is important to you and what this means to you and and really go into a lot of things they about music in and of you know why just about Scripture has a lot to say about music. Martin Luther used to say that next to the word of God.

Music elevates the soul and us were created that little programming note. By the way, to if you want your website hope for the you'll see the podcast is embedded in the website unless a different episode. You could access and and be a part of. I had one that I didn't last week to interview with a friend of mine who's an oncologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and we talked about cancer and caregivers and what we can expect as a caregiver for your loved one gets a diagnosis of cancer and she particular deals with the chemotherapy and and so forth and so if you are facing that kind of thing and you'd like to just get a little bit more inside information from a physician. Go out there and take a listen to it it's it's a great interview to just cut gives you a little bit of understanding of what to expect and and what may or may not happen with your loved one through this process but but an educated caregiver is empowered caregiver and and that's what were all about. Here the shows educating you so that you are not flailing through these things. I spent a lifetime flailing through stuff and playing catch up and and still struggle with that gray she's had 80+ surgeries hundred 50 smaller procedures over hundred doctors treated 12 different hospitals. I mean, you know, this is is is a monumental task to try to keep up with all this and and so the more educated we become in this is what what drives me on the show here is to help educate my fellow caregivers, not just on the medical side because it were not called to be doctors were caregivers. We have a different role to play, but the more we understand about what's going on them, the less fear it has over us and so this is one of the things I do as well on the podcast which we opened up the interviews and in conversations with folks that I think bring interesting perspectives and stories so forth. So anyway is low programming note and today is the belief Celestia pure, which is the outside they will if you know what that is, gives a call as well. 888-589-8840. I think it's important we we recognize these things that are in the Jewish calendar, and you certainly welcome to tell us that as well if you got a song that has been meaningful to you.

That's what that's the topic today is song for you that takes you back somewhere or that there is sustained you through something we all know a lot of the familiar hymns, but the power of music is like nothing else on this earth. Say, for the word of God. It is extraordinary what music can accomplish that. I know and I'll give you example I can we talk about this a lot with a lot of film buffs and and I am one of them. If you look at the movie Star Wars, try to imagine what that movie would have been like without John Williams amazing score. You know it it would not of been the same. I think I think it's fair to say that that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg go quite a bit to John Williams think about the movie Jaws being what would that movie been like without that and in fact when the actors were filming that movie they at Richard Dreyfus was was dissing it before it came out that it was just be a horrible movie O Alec Guinness, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi thought he was just embarrassed by Star Wars and and yet John Williams comes of this amazing score Indiana Jones whatever and I just go to the list of all these wonderful scores to to me to movies and she shows you the power of music, but this is nothing new in our society because this been going on for a long time. In Scripture it I give you a couple of Psalm 151 through five is maybe one of the more famous onesies praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary resume his mighty heavens praise him for his acts of power, praise him for surpassing greatness, praise him with the sounding of the harp and the liar. That's ill why Re: liar.politician liar liar AR just praise him with the temple and dancing, praise him with strings and pipe praise with the class of simple praise and with resounding symbols very much covers orchestra rather and in this is a commandment from Scripture to praise God with the suggest why would we hear these orchestras is massive. Orchestras play with such passion and so forth it.

It does so that in elevates her soul you know and and singing music is such an important part of our journey is caregivers that I could tell you that there been many times when I've had drives back and forth to the hospital the middle of the night and here song on the radio that just kind of helps you process that was going on or go into the hospital room and gray she's been in a lot of pain and she's been struggling, and she can't sleep and so she's she's singing to herself just to get through the night Jesus. Jesus, how I trust him you know and and and and she's just over and over with these songs because you member the fable writer Hans Christian Anderson, who said he was famous for say where were were words fail. Music speaks and I love that quote. Sometimes we don't have the words we have music and we have songs that that hang onto is there certain sums it up like today that I can't hardly get through if I play the Navy him eternal father strong save.

It makes me think my father spent more than three decades in the you know in the military and he's a retired Navy chaplain and I love that him and if you go back and just played it anytime I hear that the Navy choir sing that you know from Annapolis so forth anywhere you know just it just stirs your heart. My mother abide with me one of her favorite hymns and if you don't know that when it's it's a bit beautiful. I put on my CD.

It's beautiful him abide with me fastballs eventide and and so I can just go through the these the line of of hymns or songs that that have come along at it at critical times of her life in the form inventive lyric. Sometimes it could just be the instrumental of it, you know, and they go back and listen to some the things either there's pieces from Maurice Ravel that I love his work.

The adagio for strings.

Samuel Barber was played with Roosevelt that in and there was.

It was also part of the soundtrack and platoon and he would know it instantly and it just incredibly evocative music that just just does what does something to you.

What a song to him what something that does something. He was a caregiver and comfort, strength, elevation moves 888-589-8840 888-589-8840.

This is Peter Rosenberg in math 3 1/2 decades as a caregiver. I've spent my share of nights in the hospital sleeping and waiting rooms on foldout cots shares even the floor sometimes on sofas and a few times in the doghouse.

I'd like to hear it and I will go to Linda in Texas.

Linda good morning, how are you feeling, Linda only born grandparent you well. I think I'm just doing lovely this morning.

Tell me, tell me what's on your mind. Everybody wrong guy.

How big is God and that wise at song, according to where the capital area carrying frontline matter at RE/MAX walking around my house is planetary and not my stage IV lung cancer and manipulated and February in January and sorry and 16 and that guy named Jim Knight to land I get now that an I did not lived on borrowed time and that they come. My God, or in my henchmen. I had to learn the land that I needed to get my affairs in order and parent back caring for my parking and not kicking around like that.

I tell my family and rang and and link diagnosed with cancer. I can't. I don't want you to worry.

I don't want any value to worry Descartes, the Lord, and I had been talking and I'm carrying a lightning. The topic of fate doing.

He cocktail a lot of right now he didn't in my heart I heard this conversation that you think you're going to go on a journey and dealt Larry AK, it will be a long journey that you will lead and not die. And those words are like and printed on every inch of my body inside and outside. I heard in rate around every minute of my life and every brat and I had no problem angling name, date your diagnosed cancer. I think no that's get on with what we have to give in now, and my oncologist like it but fighters that he could not believe she financed them that he had picked look at it and not worry. Even though I my nano wheelchair in my pajamas and couldn't hardly help my head at that. You know that the Lord credit journey that I didn't question.

I love the lyrics that is winter chills because a tiny seed to fall live sleep to wake her summer's rain.

The heart grown cold warm and throb with life anew. The Masters touch will bring the glow again. How big is God how big and wide. His vestal man to try until these lips could only start he's big enough to rule his muddy universe it small enough to live within my heart. Try I could see were that would bit of a strong comfort to you during your journey lingering now and you could write the word out that a lot of God does Gerard Lovelock and and what do you know do you know who wrote that song is a man asked Stewart handling Stewart him literally that song, and he ran for president now student we did. Of course it was. Success was back in the 50s ugly and but Stuart Hamlin wrote another song and see if you know this. That's equally big to know that is it is no secret what God can do what he's done for others will do for you and that's another great song of his. So Linda I thank you very much for sharing that.

That's exactly what at what we asked for the support of just what to solve that this sustains you and carried you and was strong for you and appreciate you sharing that very much so let me go to Debbie in Ohio. Debbie good morning, how are you feeling morning prayer God I'm filling wow, thanks for asking.

Will good to hear that Toby, but you are caregiver for decades was a favorite song with, so that meant something to you how the Holy Spirit I brought three songs to mind are there and found many throughout the years. I hope you don't mind if I share the names of three different findings three different ones is fine, but let's will solicit when the first comes to your mind graded by faith phone that love that would love that gas and it does sometimes I just get so you know, flustered and and muddled in my mind and I can't think of the lyrics that refrain comes to me and I'm just so grateful when he brings that refrain to my mind and I'm Abraham. It to myself and my in my mind, and the Met of the other circumstances that are going on whenever they are regarding caregiving or other trials in my life and I cannot find it just really ministered to me throughout the decades, the love that is my favorite tomorrow. I just love that I just that that that is my favorite line from this old string for today and bright hope for tomorrow and I think that is such a powerful statement for us is caregivers and Dorothy goes into different keys so that you have to forgive me this early in the morning argument to others will quick as I got a lot of folks at the want to share their other selves to the two others okay what you want out of it. More contemporary it caught my well by Hillary Scott and I will let him. Scott and I well I like to start the first part of the lyrics say I'm so confused. I know I heard you loud and clear. So I follow through but somehow I ended up here.

I don't want to think I may never understand that my broken heart is a part of your plan. When I try to pray.

All I got it hurt and these four words that I will be gone.

So just for me at the testimony that Lauren I thought I was walking in your way. I thought I was this with you now doing what you want me to do caring for the children. You blessed me with. But somehow I ended up in a situation with children.

No adult children with disabilities and undesired divorce financial difficulties, health struggles, what's going on, but ultimately lower thy will be gone.

Thy will be gone and at that like if you read the lyrics. The lyrics I mean the refrain is just I will be gone, but the lyrics speak. It's like I'm me speaking to the Lord.

I don't understand by thy will be done lower.

You know that there's a there's a scene and in the Scripture passage of Scripture where where the Lord came down and talk to. We would some people say that said it was pre-incarnate Christ Pimental to Abraham and looked at Sodom and Gomorrah vetoes of what's going on down there and he was you're going to go down there and in and Abraham knew it was a wicked city, try to negotiate with God and he said will not the judge of the universe to such and such ghetto, and in what you really want to get them down to if you had 10 people in their destroyed. You know the story, but I love that moment when would Abraham was recognizing that God is God. He's Lord and his will be done and he-esque accepted it didn't argued morning Jesse just trusted that he was the Lord of all the pastor pretty much said you know if he's Lord at all. That is Lord of all and I love that phrase and and so that's it, that's a great way of just you know of. Of.

Also, would that the concept of God will be done, thy will be done. Jesus told us to pray like that. Thy will be done in and so thank you for that and it sounds like you have clung to that through through many dangers, toils and snares in your journey and again it it it just shows you why the cells are important and and you know but I go back to greatest of faithfulness that one has sustained Gracie that through you.

I kidding hard to get through that so when I'm playing it for a congregation so forth.

In an Gracie or Gracie singing of of of done it as a solo piece burdened with congregational singing and I just getting her to get through it and it is such a powerful song in so thank you for bringing that term. Debbie, let's let's go to the RJ I like this with RJ in Pennsylvania.

RJ good morning are you feeling good morning Peter how are you. If I was going to. How are you feeling is the question you got answer will I what I woke up at 730 on heard on AFR you mentioned music driving huge movie and music fanatic out the reason why I'm calling in my stepfather passed away.

The Alzheimer's backer no 17 I dedicated a song to my mama my grandma and thought I dedicated to my father was landslide by Stevie nicks. You know, Fleetwood Mac know that some in beginning of that song. This song is for you.

Daddy and my dad hated rock 'n' roll music.

Peter he hated with a passion.

He was a bluegray boy grows up and I played that I dedicated landslide bike Stevie next to my father some four years ago that I love that I love that phrase will I been afraid of changing because I built my life around you, but time makes you bolder.

Even children get older and I'm getting over to and and take my love take it down to climb a mountain turnaround and if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills where the landslide bring it down, and that that is a powerful song that your father what would you think about when you dedicated that dude did he ever did he ever joined so David like a hated rock 'n' roll music well bluegrass will do that to you and now I want to get a letter but I appreciate you sharing that we got to go to break RJ thank you for sharing that and these this is again these these the visceral power of music it it it transcends time and it is something extraordinary that happens. These songs are important to us in very critical times we hang on to. But it helps to the healing process to help strengthen his confidence helps us cry and get those tears out of all of those things. What is your 880-589-8840. There's no wrong answer is just what it was 24 seven emergency support increasing safety, reducing isolation, these things are more important than ever.

That's my companion. connection and independence for you and those you care about my companion. caregiver here on the radio this show you as a family caregiver that's Gracie from her CD resilient.

You know how much music means to Gracie and to me it's been a part of our lives long before she had her wrecked long before I was ever caregiver and both of us started playing and singing music at such an early age. We both studied it formally and it has sustained us. There was a tremendous gift from God to have that music in it in our lives that sustained us through more heartache that I can possibly describe for you this morning, and in last night and Gracie would I were just talking and turned to Alexis at play. Jesus is my treasure by Gary Chapman dear chap, show couple times this one my favorite songs of all times.

Jesus is much as there's treasure at the end of this narrowed him play. I wish I could play it is a simple song is not complicated to play but I can't do for it. What Gary did and it it just does it. It is just an amazing song that somehow just takes me back. I can remember being it is it of concert and hearing him up on stage. Back when he and Amy were touring and Amy Grant were touring in the hearing that song Jesus is my treasure and I love that song. And so I asked you today is audience was a sound that is meant something to you that is carried you through things that are sustained you and why is this important to me given apology by the way, to all the folks were listening on a streaming on Facebook under hopefully caregiver page on Facebook. There's a default mechanism that will not properly do every time after manually set it will weekly stream live of the microphone and the board and so forth and I cannot seem to get Facebook to do it and so you hear me, but you will hear the colors and I apologize for that terribly and so I fixed it so if you want to watch on Facebook love you can see it in.

I have a keyboard I think of the only radio host of the country. There's a lecture with a keyboard setup that will do stuff and will run that through will play Salisbury if if if I know the sum of truck plate 40 and if I don't will try to just muddle through it but 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 if you have a song that is meant something to you and here's one from John in Mississippi John, good morning. Are you feeling more grown gray deli, but the song that I want now and when I was younger. The worship leader Baptist Church would amount to an estimate in the special markers to the car and morning song that had to really concentrate not breaking down and crying. Mr. Kohler this town was written about Dallas homes and this only to rise again. That's it.

Yeah that would go ahead yeah what a great so the verses that the groundwork for an explosive course, you know, and I'll not canceling more that I had never could see that sound you know my goodness, I love the you get a ghetto who does this. John when I was a young man I would to the church. My best friend life we been buddies now for 45 years.

It where it is church and is Atlanta and this girl got up to sing that song and she had a good voice of issues getting issues at the piano, but the song has a big range.

You know that a B startup hello to gets really hot and she was down in the basement when she started this thing on the way down in the lower register. And so you were 15 years old and it when you're 15 years old and something strikes you funny church, you can't hardly get through it, you just just slapping yourself, pinching yourself stick a pencil in your leg. Anything to keep from laughing out loud church kiss, which she started off figured she she was weighed under low she would go to just go ahead and we were just ugly tears were cut out of her as we tried not to laugh so hard.

It was very disrespectful. We should be ashamed. But it was still funny but I love that because I rise again no power on earth will keep you. Did you know that was that was a great team from Dallas whole oregano and I love that I must feel better when I got the course. I can understand that Qubec found out about you know, looking outside document found the word to describe it have knowledge gets exploded and spilled just talking about it, that's kind.

I never could read that very whether people know they can just blister down there and I never could readmit Henry music that I could never quite get the shape notes. I didn't spend a lot of time at it grow up reading sick notes with it and so but I'll have to look that one up at the tell me why that was so important to that bit the father just takes you back with the hymnal were what will it make my grandfather would probably the deepest spiritual part that I had in my lap at that time in. I was born and raised in the missionary bandage chart and my grandfather took the time and teach me about bottling teach me about everything everybody else screamed out lately too busy doing the answer doing Matt Torgerson but it was.

It probably touched my heart and it was probably the basis of why when my children were little.

I would instead of singing a lullaby making great and modifying well. They both live in different states and he had contacted me a couple economy.

He remembers all of that and I hope that I hope that all children can be tracked back something that might protect a special memory form.

Well, I think you done your part to do that deleted nothing to remember you singing amazing Grace, who did you care for. You said you been a caregiver to who did you care for several years.

Standing with hope when my wife Gracie gave up both of her legs follow this horrible Rick that she had as a teenager and she try to save them for years and if it just wouldn't work out. And finally she relinquished him and thought wow this is that I'm not happy legs anymore. What can God do with that and then she had this vision for using prosthetic limbs as a means of sharing the gospel to put legs on her fellow amputees and that's what we been doing now since 2005 was standing with hope. We work in the West African country of Ghana and you can be a part of that through supplies through supporting team members through supporting the work that we're doing over there.

You could designate Olympus all kinds of ways that you could be a part of giving the gift that keeps on walking and standing with would you take a moment ago understanding with and see how you can give they go walking and leaping and praising God. You could be a part of here.

Here American family radio. This Peter Rosenberg if this is so for you as a family caregiver 888-589-8840. There's nothing else like what we do it because relevant strength in the caregiver's heart and it always starts in the heart. If your heart is squarely what happens to your wallet limbs to your body, what happens to you, my lips to your spirit and I breathe 35 years of experience of this that I understand what the real battle is always in the heart and if it's a matter of the heart is covered in Scripture and it speaks to that.

There's nowhere in Scripture where it talks about my unique situation is a caregiver for example taking care of Gracie through all of her surgeries and amputations all the stuff so I don't have that kind of roadmap but there's still the Scriptures filled with places were talks about this despair, heartache, sorrow, loss, grief, resentment, rage, anger, disappointment, fatigue, almost of weariness. It's all there, and that's where we start on the show and part of my journey and part of the journey in Scripture is the comforting and strengthening and encouraging part of of music. David used to play for King Saul window with the evil spirit because basically Saul was euro was was mentally deranged at times and it would.

David played his music, it would common down and and music has a see incredible power to transcend things is like a Lesko say when you hear certain sausages takes you back in and it. It transcends time, even a Lesko to Cheryl Louisiana Cheryl good morning, how are you feeling loyal I am very very blessed well today would bid your husband's birthday yet.

Is that correct that correct in your song is what a day that will be strongly Hatley sang it added general that is such a great song. What a day that will be that I can't sing very well.

So you have to bear with me, but it's that that is a powerful powerful him when we look forward to all of us standing there when we all see Jesus will sing and shout the victory as it says that when we all get to heaven in the what. Tell me about your journey as a carer with that song and in the did you like that.

So before you sing at the funeral was at one of his favorite songs or what was that one of his favorite songs and at way back when we were had been married 50 years trying he passed away back, but she only man that I dated that characterized I was saved are not. Not my soul without soloing her chair attract people quite frequently that he suffered terribly from depression and it it really is an is indeed will relation she doesn't suffer from it anymore doesn't fracture. That's it. That's one for what a day that will be when my Jesus, I still see the look upon his face. The one who saved me by his grace and that is that's a very special song, and I thank you for for sharing that with us this morning and be able to share something out. I've got a whole bunch of folks try to get in. We got just a few months can you do it in about 30 seconds. I'll try Lamentations 319 to 26 and it at remembering my afflictions and ministry I recall and have hope. It is from the Lord's mercy.

We are not consumed. They are new every morning great is thy faith had to wait for him to.

That's all that seeks to admit it's good that a man should both hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord beautiful. I love it I love that passage all on in it.

If you look at limitations three little little bit past that this is a he does not willingly afflict the sons of men who he causes grief. He also causes compassion.

That is a great passage in Scripture and the appreciate you sharing that with us he's having a great birthday with the Savior today and I thank you for sharing it with us really appreciate it. Cheryl, I got a run to Jason and Ohio Jason good morning how you feeling well.

When you envision doing a prosthetic limb outreach. Did you ever think that inmates would help you do that, not in a million years. When you go to the facility run by core civic and you see that faces of these inmates that are working on prosthetic limbs that you have helped collect from all of the country that you put out the plea for and their disassembly sell these legs like what you have your own prosody and arms and orange everything when you see all this. What do you make me cry because I see the smiles on their faces and I know I know what it is to be locked someplace where you can't get out without somebody else allowing you to get out course, being in the hospital so much and so long and so that these men are so glad that they get to be doing as as one man said something good family with my hands.

Did you know before you became an amputee that parts of prosthetic limbs could be recycled now had no idea and I thought a peg leg. I thought of wooden legs. I never thought of titanium and carbon lags and flex the sea legs and all that. I never thought about that as you watch these inmates participate in something like this, knowing that there there helping other people. Now walk the providing the means for the supplies to get over there. What is it do to you. Just on the heart level. I wish I could explain to the world. What I see in here and I wish that I could be able to go and say the this guy right here Denise go to Africa with that. I never not feel that way out every time you know you always make me have to leave. I don't want to leave them. II feel like I'm at home with them and I feel like that we have a common bond that would've never expected that only God could put together.

Now that you've had experience with it what you think of the faith-based programs. The core civic offers. I think they're just absolutely awesome and I think every prison out there should have faith-based programs like this because the return rate of the man that are involved in this particular faith-based program and other ones like it, but I know about this one are.

It is just an amazingly low rate compared to those who don't happen and I think that that says so much that has anything to do with me just has something to do with God using somebody broken to help other broken people.

If people want to donate or use prosthetic limbs, whether from a loved one who passed away or you know somebody well groomed.

You've donated some of your own for the did have it out of the do that now. Please go to standing with staining Thanks Grace
