His Eye is on the Sparrow...

This is a story about a miracle.  God's special miracle for Mother and Dad.

Mother wanted a grand piano, Dad wasn't so sure a grand piano was a wise investment, but Mother had longed for a grand piano her entire life (she had begun piano lessons when she was 5 years old). Daddy relented, and the piano was purchased.  Mother was thrilled with her grand piano.

One day Mother was practicing "His eye is on the sparrow" on her new piano in preparation for a concert. (This song just happens to be one of the first solos I performed as a pre-teen in Algoma, MS and is also one of Dad's favorite songs.)

Here is Nancy Petrey (Mother) playing this song:

His Eye is on the Sparrow


 Here is the rest of the story... Enjoy!

Song for the Lord

Words of Wisdom
September 15, 2013

This is a special post. Conrad and I have made digital copies of old cassette tapes of 295 sermons of Curtis Petrey, my father. But, we are running out of tapes to record. This blog post will be the last for a while, so we wanted to share something extra special with Dad's followers.

This recording was made on Sunday, September 15th at South Luverne Baptist Church in Luverne, Alabama. My father has long joked about his lack of singing ability, which makes this a remarkable recording in every respect.  For the first time in his life, at the age of 73 years, my father sang his first solo that includes a medley of old favorites. Here is a Facebook post by my mother, Nancy Petrey, from earlier this week detailing the event.

I hope you have enjoyed listening to the sermons of Curtis Petrey. We will add new sermons as they become available to us, but take the time to go back through the archives to enjoy any that you may have missed during this past year.

Curtis Petrey ministered to thousands during his preaching career. Now, with the internet, he is reaching hundreds of thousands.  Please share these with your family and friends.

God Bless You,

Susan and Conrad
