Sweet Beulah Land

"><
I am having technical problems this morning.

On March 17th 24 years ago my Dad went to his heavenly home. One of his favorite songs was "Sweet Beulah Land". I am posting this song today in honor of him.

My dad enjoyed playing his guitar and singing, reading his bible and teaching Sunday school. He worked hard at his job to come home and work in the garden with my mom. He liked watching boxing and baseball on T.V along with The Lawrence Welk show and Hee Haw. He also watched football ....The University of Alabama was his favorite college team. I remember so many times watching the games with him. Wonderful memories...that sometimes you just want to share. I have so many more and will share more at another time. Till then ...enjoy one of Dad's favorites

"Sweet Beulah Land"

My dad loved that song too.... I can still see him raising his hands and saying "Glory" when he haard it. Sweet Memories. And sweet assurance that he is fellowshipping with our Lord right now. In the Sweet Beulah land.
Love you and praying for you...
How is your mom doing?
Please keep me informed...
Love and Blessings.....

Sounds like you had a great dad. It's good that you can reminisce about him on the day he went home to be with the Lord. I am going to listen to the song right now.

I haven't heard that song in a long time but I've always loved it. My mom died four years ago and I still really miss her. Your dad sounds like a wonderful man. You will see him one day in Beulah Land. Thanks for visiting Heart Choices today. I always enjoy meeting new blogging friends.

Darlene,

What a sweet tribute to your Dad. I will go check the song out on youtube.

You were so close to me last week...I hope you had a great time (if the trip was for leisure)

Big hugs for you!

I have always loved that song and Squire Parson's version was always my favorite. How sweet to post this in honor of your dad! It is wonderful that you have all those precious memories to treasure. I am looking forward to "no more sad good-byes"....

That song always makes me think of my great grandmothers funeral... someone sang it and at the time I had never heard it before...

Thanks for sharing such sweet memories of your dad...

Blessings!

Boy does that song bring back memories.
Your Dad sounded like a sweet Dad...one you looked up to....I am so glad that you will one day see him again.
And I am glad you were left with sweet memories of his time here.
