2-20-17 Today’ Scripture 1 Corinthians 2;9 What no eye has heard, and what no human mind has conceived-the things God has prepared for those who love him-
” Palm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want, he maketh to lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me beside the still waters He retoreth my soul, he leadeth me in the paths righteousness for his own name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; Thy thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 25:1,2 to you, o Lord, I lift up my soul: in you I trust, o my God.
About Farm Country Gospel Music
Farm Country Gospel Music (fcgmusic) was founded in 1997, as the banner to be used to promote the first Gospel music album written and produced by and produced by Don Cooper. The name was devised to how Don’s love for farm life as well as music, and especially Gospel oriented music. Our mission statement is:
“Dedicated to the glory of Jesus Christ and God’s true word the Holy Bible.”
Since that very first album “He Gave Us Jesus”, a second album, “Jesus Is The Only Way To Heaven”, has been produced, Don has pursued an interest in writing poetry. Poetry is a natural progression from song writing. Song lyrics consist of poetry in their own right. Don is somewhat embarrassed to write Gospel music when there are already so many wonderful songs which he loves to sing and enjoy, written by other great song writers.
Some of Don’s poetry has been combined with photos taken on his digital camera. He has also written a book, “From The Heart Of An Old Farmer”, which is a compilation of poetry as well as lyrics from both of his albums.
A presentation of his music and poetry has been appreciated by various local groups who have enjoyed this farmer’s twist on Jesus’ presence throughout his life.
God is Awesome, Wonderful, The Alpha and The Omega! God is indeed good to all of us. Don feels that one of the most wonderful gifts God has given to him personally, is the gift of filling his mind with melodies and poetry, and prays that God allows you to receive as much enjoyment hearing and reading them as Don has had writing them.
You may listen to excerpts from Don’s music and contact him to purchase the albums on CD or cassette, or the book if you are interested.
If you like Don’s work, please remember him in your prayers. Ask the Lord to guide his writing, that it will always be pleasing to Him, and in agreement with His Will.
Thanks and God Bless,
The place we were- and the way we were !
Nobody thought there was any chance we could purchase a farm of pour own.
The years Of struggle seemed like a trance; will the ever leave us alone!
Our future was planned by our loving Lord;
He provided the farm that became our home
