  1. Hey Daniel,
    Been wanting to let you & the readers know that your book “Dianne Wilkinson, the Life & Times of a Gospel Songwriter”, was a great read. I throughly enjoyed it! Thank you so much for all you do in support of southern gospel music.

    • Gladys, that book was a joy to put together! I’m so glad that you enjoyed reading it! Thanks for the kind words! 🙂

  2. I love that song. But with the national events of November still quite loud in my memory, it’s not quite as hard to “choose between them” these days.

    • 🙂 When the song came out in 1985, Ronald Reagan was President, it really looked like our country was going to turn back to God, and gas was $1.11 per gallon. 🙂
