I'm so excited about camping, fellowship... seeing old friends, making new friends.. and getting those finisher shorts!!!
I made a little video of pictures from the PL course ( I got from google images so thank you to everyone who's pictures I borrowed) and I set to the tune of "on jordan's stormy banks". When Marc Griffin and I ran over the course 2 weeks ago, this tune was stuck in my head and on replay. I first heard this hymn when I was in school as a child. I went to a private Presbyterian school in Richlands, VA. and they played many traditional hymns. I was very interested in the history behind these songs and learned that this tune was written in the 1800's and very popular among troops fighting the Civil War ( both union and confederate). The version of the song I used in the video is from Bobby Horton's ( no relation to david horton) "HOMESPUN SONGS OF FAITH" which is a compilation of Hymns from the 1860's.
"OH, WHO WILL COME AND GO WITH ME? I'M BOUND FOR THE PROMISE LAND!!!"
