Janet Roller - Living Oak Ministries

Hi. I'm Janet Roller: wife of one, mother of two, lover of coffee and writer of songs. I have just finished my first fiction novel and I'm looking forward to watching how God uses the simple story to minister to others. God is a big deal to me. My goal each day is to wake up and declare, "This day is Yours, Lord. Show me what to do with it."

TSMS - Nothin' for My Journey


The Happy Goodman Family - I Wouldn't Take Nothin' For My Journey Now!!!

I grew up singing this song in my little country church. God is really impressing on my spirit the importance of obeying in every step of the journey. I act like my little kids when I keep asking, "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? How much farther, Lord?" Instead I should be enjoying where I am with Him that day.

Enjoy. If this isn't your style of music...just enjoy how far we've come since the as-big-as-your-head bow tie days. But Vestel still had her white hanky!

For more great songs, check out Then Sings My Soul Saturday with Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders.

Great song choice! I always loved the Happy Goodmans of the early years.

It amazes me the joy and peace and the reminders of His love that music brings to me.

Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Your right... we need to be content in the here and now and enjoy every minute. I love all kinds of music. I enjoyed this. No one sings like Vestal did.

I love hearing new "old" music. It's new to me - my father wouldn't be caught dead listening to gospel and I don't remember my mother ever really having the radio on at home. Thank you for sharing them - they are wonderful to listen to. Blessings!
