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).
Saturdays come and go. Some are really good and some, not so. Whatever you have planned for your Saturday, whether coming or going, I pray that your day will be pleasant, energizing and full of love. Happy Saturday.
I attended another celebration of life yesterday. The main memories the family had of their mother/wife/grandmother were of how much she loved life and how life loved her back. It was meaningful that in the face of death she knew that she would “dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23). That’s how I find the courage to say, Happy Sunday, in the aftermath of sadness.
When I was a child, I learned to sing “Climb, Climb Up Sunshine Mountain”. The music and words made me feel happy and free. I heard it on You Tube yesterday and it still made me feel happy and free. I hope it makes you feel the same way. Happy Sunday.
1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. (But not all of them, obviously.)
Yesterday, I came across the following in a journal:
Enjoy regularly stimulating your sense of sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.
Today let’s be aware and enjoy stimulating each of these senses. Happy Saturday.
Whether spending the day indoors, on the road, at the cottage, walking in nature, preparing a sermon….whatever…branch out and have a happy Saturday.
Sometimes this caption is easier said than done. Happy Thursday
Never miss an opportunity to make others happy,
Even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.
Upon reflection, the small things that get us down in life do not compare with the suffering others go through. Until we are faced with the tragedies felt by our fellow humans, let us be thankful when we are blessed with the best. Happy Saturday.
I am definitely going to the house of the Lord with a happy heart today…not only a happy heart but a thankful heart; thankful for all my many blessings and especially for the eighty-one years (yesterday) God has given me to be thankful for. If today is your birthday, enjoy! Happy Sunday.
Whether you’re coming or going, whether it’s raining or snowing, be happy in knowing a brand new year is on the way! Happy Weekend.
