I have sung about it from the time I was a young kid of 14 years old, right after I got saved. I have talked about it over and over with many troubled hurting people through the years. I have lived it, and I have been in the valley numerous times. I sure have, and I am fairly certain each of you have had those times in your own life where you have been there. We’ve all been in the dark lonely valley of life. And if you haven’t, let me assure you, you will in time. It’s just a part of the journey that we all have to go thru and deal with. It’s so painful yet so necessary for us to go to that new place in Him.

 

Precious mama Dottie Rambo penned her song, “(In the Valley) He Restoreth My Soul” during one of the darkest periods of her own life. There were many times when we would be out on the road traveling, or we would be sitting at her home when she would be in some of the most excruciating back pain, or as she struggled to understand the whys of her own journey, that I would sit there and be praying with her. She would start singing the lyrics to herself, almost as a prayer, and before I knew it, I would be joining in. Within a little bit of time, we both knew that we would come out of the valley.

Remembering the Rambos…..

The Rambos were an American Southern gospel music group that was formed in the 1960s. They were one of the most successful Gospel trios of the 20th century. The group consisted of Buck and Dottie Rambo at first along with several various people singing with them and they were joined by their daughter, Reba, in 1965. They were inducted into the Gospel Music Association‘s Hall of Fame in 2001. (Wikipedia)

 

Take a listen to this Rambos song. Today we celebrate THE RAMBOS!

Wisdom from Dusty Wells: This Place

By Dusty Wells

One of my favorite cherished memories that I hold onto, of my many years of traveling, ministering, taking care of and walking alongside of the late prolific songwriter, artist and my friend Dottie Rambo, was listening to her tell me stories of how she was divinely inspired to write certain songs. Or how she would come up with ideas for her lyrics and music….you see Dottie was not one that liked to be put into a room and told to write something. She hated having deadlines for writing for a new project. She always wanted her heart, life and soul to be open, honest and vulnerable to where she was on her own journey.

 

Dottie lived what she sang and then she sang what she lived. She chose to live her songs and then share them with the world. Many days and nights of our traveling together or sitting at her house doing work during the evening, I would hear her crying out in pain from her back problems. I knew one of the only things that would help is when she would get in the anointing, so I would start asking her to tell me about her life, her journey, the fans she loved and the story behind the songs.

 

I had the opportunity to tape many of those conversations via an old cassette recorder that she loved to tape on while recording new song ideas. She always wanted to have a book out on the Story Behind the Songs. We would always end up with tons of used Kleenex tossed aside, and tears and laughter taking us to new places. She had a story for everything or so it seemed. I loved listening to her and I loved to encourage her to tell me more.

This morning as I was out walking, I was doing a little praying and seeking God for some certain answers not only for our life but also for several friends who are in desperate need for answers. I looked around at the beautiful foliage and greenery that surrounds the lake which we live close to, and I was reminded so gently that God is all around us. Yes He is in the churches where we worship, in the concert halls we sing at,and in the grand cathedrals that were built in His honor. He is found in all of those places, but He is right here in our hearts. That is His dwelling place. I felt Him in a fresh way and I knew He was right there with us.

 

I started humming the classic Dottie chorus, “Holy Spirit Thou Art Welcome,” and all of a sudden I remembered her telling me the story of how that song came to be.

 

The Rambos (Buck, Dottie and Reba) had been invited to sing behind the Iron Curtain in the early ‘70’s. They were told they could sing any and all of their songs, but they could not talk about God or the blood of Jesus if they were to talk and share in between the songs. All they could do was sing the Gospel. Nothing else would be tolerated.

ramboRandall Hamm had an opportunity to sit down and talk with the late Buck Rambo at the time of the passing of his wife Dottie in 2008. He shares that interview in this clip:

We at SGNScoops were saddened to hear of Rambo’s passing. In 2011, I was privileged to interview Buck, Reba,  Dony and Destiny of Rambo-McGuire. It was a treat to sit in the presence of legends and talk about their music and ministry. Now that gentleman is sitting at the feet of His Savior.

Randy and Sherri Miller: Lyrics, Laughter and Love

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on March 21, 2013 – 6:53 pm -

Randy and Sherri 3By Lorraine Walker

Randy and Sherri Miller are accomplished Gospel artists who are singing, speaking
and laughing their way across America. Randy is a Kingsmen alumni, a recipient of numerous
Singing News and other Southern Gospel awards and a lifetime inductee of the Alabama Music
Hall of Fame. Sherri sang with her family, The Kenny Parker Trio, before doing session and
stage work with such artists as Dolly Parton, The Judds and Michael English. Today this couple
has joined their accomplished vocals, love of life and ability to make others laugh as they share
their music with audiences far and wide.

When Randy Miller left the Kingsmen, he began a solo career and started Snippa Creek Studios.
Sherri Parker Miller joins her husband in making music and laughter with their recently released
Randy Miller Comedy album and the soon-to-be released Where It All Comes From. If
something taps into your emotions, whether through humor or song, it will work its way into
your heart; but it all comes from the Lord as far as the Millers are concerned.

The title track of Where It All Comes From is sung by Sherri and written by Kenna Turner West,
one of Southern Gospel’s most prolific songwriters. The song is currently on Sound Cloud and
showcases the versatility of this talented couple. Kenna says, “Sherri is an amazing vocal talent
and all who know her appreciate her sweet, joyful spirit.”

Dusty Wells, head of sales and marketing at Word Entertainment, shares, “I love Sherri! I
remember the first time I met Sherri was at the National Quartet Convention years ago while
sitting with Dottie Rambo at The Rambo’s booth. I knew of her because her Daddy, Kenny
Parker, was The Rambo’s long time pianist. So when this blonde curly haired little beauty of a
girl came to the booth, Dottie just went on and on about her and how special she was. Our
friendship grew over the years.”

“What I love about Sherri is that not only is she a wonderful singer and communicator,
but she is a lover of people,” says Wells. “She is always consistent, always happy and always
caring for others. I love her spirit and I love that God is using her. She is so special and I cherish
her friendship!”

Another close friend of the couple is Johnathan Bond of Young Harmony. “I love Sherri and
Randy because they practice what they preach, plus they are awesome to be around. Also, during
a very dark period of my life, they offered a shoulder. They are Christians in action!” Read more »
