The world is in a precarious place right now and we are warned to take all the precautions available to protect ourselves from Covid-19. It is understood pets are also susceptible. This teen and his dog are accepting their responsibility to stay well. Happy Saturday.
This song by Bobby McFerrin won Song of the Year and Record of the Year at the 1989 Grammy Awards. It is a wonderful antidote for worry, and a huge pick-me-up when life sometimes gets us down. It always makes me smile. I posted it in 2018 as released by Bob Marley but apparently that is incorrect. Relax and enjoy the experience (again).
In the summer of 1999 I heard the hymn. I the Lord of Sea and Sky. I’m sure I had heard it many times before , but this particular time it touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I had just retired from business and wondered, ‘what next’. It didn’t happen overnight but gradually my life became that of caregiver, prayer giver, Elder, and whatever else God laid on my heart to do. It is 2020 and I am still holding His people in my heart. TYG. Happy Sunday.
One of my many favorite songs is Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. One of my favorite performers of this song is k.d. lang. She performs Hallelujah with such feeling, the audience appreciation is palpable. Note the passion she puts into her performance, especially at the end. The song took Cohen two years to write and was released in 1984. Happy Saturday.
Sometimes we have choices to make that are not always easy; in fact most times are not. Here is a little something I found on Pinterest that makes choosing easy for me. Happy Wednesday.
Continuing Saturday’s play on words known as lexophilia:
I used to be a banker but I lost interest.
England has no kidney bank but it has a Liverpool.
I was told I had type-A blood but it was a typo.
When chemists die they barium.
I’m reading a good book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.
Why were the Natives here first? They had reservations.
I didn’t like my beard at first but then it grew on me.
When you get a bladder infection, urine in trouble
A dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary is a known as a thesaurus.
All the toilets in New York City have been stolen. The police have nothing to go on.
That’s the end of lexophilia laughs until another time. Enjoy your day.
And so should we, even on Sunday. Proverbs 17:22 says A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
*One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names with small American flags mounted on either side of it.
The seven-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor stood by the little boy and said, “Good morning, Alex.” “Good morning, Pastor,” he replied still focused on the plaque.
“Pastor, what is this?” he asked.
“Well, son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”
Soberly they stood together staring at the large plaque when finally Alex, his voice barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, “Which service was it, the 9:45 or the 11:15?”
