Simple Praise for Thanksgiving



I love this time of the year.  It’s a season for gratefulness.  It’s a season for giving gratitude for the harvest of thought, action and progress manifested in our lives!

One of my favorite songs in my sacred repertoire, “Simple Praise,” is one that I performed many times in church as well as recorded on my “Story For The Ages” CD.  It seems absolutely fitting to share with you now.

Just click the link below and listen to my full recording of “Simple Praise” by Craig Courtney and Pamela Martin.

Deep Waters

“Sometimes we are lucky enough to know our lives have been changed, to discard the old and embrace the new and run headlong down an immutable course. It happened to me… on that summer’s day when my eyes were opened to the sea.” 
~Jacques Yves-Cousteau


DEEP WATERS, my latest project, is a gorgeous new CD composed and conceived by Peter Link.  It is a suite of 3 songs surrounded by hauntingly beautiful orchestral interludes.

From the very beginning of this project, I found myself submersed in the watery metaphor of the mariner’s tale that pervades this piece.  I realized through the course of this work that in my own life I have observed the metaphor, lived it, and come out the other side.  I believe most of us have when we think about the individual stories of our lives.

Check this out: “A prayer tsunami”

As we have all been trying to get our minds around the devastation of earthquake and tsunami in Japan — and as we’ve all been embracing our fellow brothers and sisters in Japan in our hearts and prayers, it is still overwhelming to me to”grok” what has happened there.

In working to get past feeling helpless and overwhelmed,  I have found many articles and blog posts to be very inspiring.  They are chronicling the prayers as well as the humanitarian work going on all over the world for Japan.

Here is a blog post called “A prayer tsunami” posted on Check it out!
It starts off with the guest blogger, Steve Salt giving his perspective from the West Coast of the United States:

“As word spread today about the devastating earthquake that hit Japan, a wave of fear began to spread around the globe. It is palpable. Video of the destruction viewed by billions is intensifying that anxiety.

As of this writing, the west coast of the United States is under a tsunami warning and residents are bracing for possible destruction along the western shores caused by the volume and speed of ocean waters. Just as tangible are the tidal waves of apprehension.

The ripple effect of this news is a heightened sense of insecurity. It is a challenge to the human psyche when the very ground we stand on is deemed unstable. It can shake our very core.

My prayer this morning continues to rest on the unshaken realm of God’s creation. I can find security there. Life is neither fragile nor trapped on the surface of a tiny ball of dirt in the vast vacuum of space. As I study my Bible I realize that life is formidable.”

The rest of the article and the comments posted by people all over the world have been very inspiring to me.   In response, I wish to share inspiration that I have discovered this week:

Every Day

On my Facebook page, a new friend asked about my forthcoming CD project — what will be the theme of it?

That’s a wonderful question whose answer has surely been on a low fire, slowly cooking and stewing and is just now coming to a full boil.

So, what’s the short answer to this burning question?  Ah – you know I’m long-winded!  But wait!  This time I can do it!  I can give you the short answer!

The new CD is about every day

“Hmmmmm,” you inquire…  “What does that mean?”

OK… here’s the long answer:

Mr. Kanamori’s “Children Full of Life”

Mr. Kanamori’s “Children Full of Life”

One of my internet sources of Inspiration is a site called  I have blogged about these folks before, and I have to do it again.  Because I subscribe to their site, I receive a Karmatube Video of the Week by email every Friday morning.

I try to go through every video each week, but sometimes they stack up, just as my email does.  Last Friday, however, I took the time to view the video that week and was deeply rewarded and refreshed for having done so.

The Karmatube Video of the Week for Friday, January 15th was actually the first of a series of 5 documentary shorts about a truly special teacher, Toshiro Kanamori, who teaches his fourth grade students in Kanazawa, a town northwest of Tokyo.

Mr. Kanamori teaches, besides normal curriculum, some of the grand themes in life:  love, compassion, patience, teamwork, dealing with grief and most importantly, the capacity to be happy.  He has his children write their inner thoughts each day in their journals, and they in turn share what they have written.

In the course of sharing, these children learn to listen to each another, to respect and to support one another.
