Hate The Sin

Back in another lifetime, I was a songwriter. It was a time I treasure with all my heart, along with the recordings that we managed to preserve our music with.

We had an outdoor spa building behind our house. One night I was in the hot tub by myself and this song came to me. I wrote it all within twenty minutes. (We kept pad and pen close at all times.)

The result of that late night soak was “Hate The Sin But Don’t Hate The Sinner.

I loved every aspect of this creative mode from jotting an idea down to finishing out verses and chorus and walking into the studio to record.. Do I miss it? Heck yeah, but the writing just simply turned a corner in another direction.

Hope you enjoy!!

    1. Thank you, Gwen. Actually, the man doing the guitar work on this song lived in Branson for many years and played with The Dillards. His name is Jim Glaspy and he is an amazingly talented musician!


  1. That was awesome, Jan! You are a multi-talented individual.
    In addition to writing books and music, I believe performing is an art too. I would think that would be something you’d miss. What a great song. And I love the pictures of you and Rick.
