12And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. (Revelation 20:12)
John’s Revelation mentions the Book of Life, and he details that the dead will be judged “according to what they had done as recorded in the books.” Most of this world will be just lucky enough to get their name in the Book of Life (you have to believe Jesus is the Son of God), but I think many of us are going to be surprised when our life is reviewed in front of the Gates of Heaven. Are you living a life you would be proud of watching in front of the Heavenly Host? If not, the only one stopping you from doing so is YOU. Stopping making excuses, in four short days, a new year begins, and a new YOU can be born again.
Before I get to my music review for 2021, I want to beg you to click the link below and read Mrs. Z’s newest post. It is a timely reminder for all of us, because, whether or not we have little children of our own, we most likely have little cousins, nephew, nieces, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, all of which yearn for our love and attention.
My Top 5 Albums of 2021:
#4 – “Milk & Honey” by Crowder:
This album had a handful of amazing upbeat numbers like “Good God Almighty,” “Milk & Honey,” and my favorite track, which I will share later on in my Top 20 singles countdown. But Crowder also provided us with slower, intimate masterpieces like “God Really Love Us” with Dante Bowe and Maverick City Music, and “The Anchor.” In fact, every song on this album was incredible.

My Top 20 Singles of 2021:
(So I realized last night, to get through 20 songs in just 5 days, I need to be sharing more than 2 songs a day, so today and tomorrow, I’ll be dropping five to get us caught up.)
