For those of you who may not know, Randy had a debilitating stroke a couple of years ago. I think there for a while it was touch and go. It was good to see him at the ACM awards last night! Randy, keep up the good work and keep pushing forward! God’s grace and much love and prayers to you. One of the first songs our daughter Crystal learned as a toddler was “Digging up Bones”.
Here is his letter:
Randy Travis Writes Heartfelt Letter To His Fans
[hmtad name=”Adsense Unit 1″ align=”floatleft”]Hello, my friends. It was an amazing gift to feel all the love from you in Dallas at the Academy of Country Music Awards. It has been a hard-fought and miraculous journey since my stroke two years ago, and I have gained a greater understanding of God’s grace, and how quickly events can change us.
Words can never express my gratitude to those who continue to believe in me, pray for me and keep me lifted up in thought and deed. The kind cards and heartfelt letters of testimony and encouragement brought me through the darkest of days. Mary read each and every one of them to me, and I felt the love and concern being sent my way; and, I gathered strength from this. None of us are worthy of the immense outpouring of support shown to me, and I consider each of my fans, a friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The power of music remains a source of inspiration and healing for me. Writing songs was always a passion of mine, and I still have a lot to share with you. It is my prayer that, with continued healing, one day soon, I will be back on that stage exchanging music with my fans … my friends, who with God’s amazing grace, have brought me this far. As I work through music/speech/occupational/physical therapy, it is my hope that my songs of yesterday continue to touch your life in some way.
I wish you each — good health, a kind word, a song in your heart, and a friend that has your back trough thick and thin.
My gratitude & love, “Forever and Ever, Amen”
