In today’s world it seems things just go from bad to worse. The virus appears to ease off just to rear its head again in different parts of the globe. Violence and crime walk hand in hand; peaceful protests turn ugly; rulers bend the rules; fires, floods, ferocious winds and earthquakes ravish the earth. And we, the human race, ask, “Is there any hope?”
Scripture says, “For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:24-25
The following song keeps me hopeful. Happy Sunday.
Last night I watched two hours of Celtic Thunder. This young man, Damien, was fourteen at this filming and is now twenty-seven and still singing. It was very soothing. Happy Saturday.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. Matthew 18: 20
With most churches and places of worship closed due to Covid-19, there are ways and means of still attending some kind of spiritual service, whether online or by telephone. We are to remember that the church is the people not the building. Here is a Church in the Wildwood to lift our spirits even though we aren’t able to accept the invitation at this time. Happy Sunday.
I’m looking at a beautiful day and hearing a beautiful song. It just needs to be shared. Happy Saturday.
This is an all time favorite song of mine because it gives joy, is uplifting, and speaks my mind. Happy Sunday.
I blogged this song at Easter time in 2017 but we need to hear it again now in these surreal times. Get well, world.
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.
To follow up on last Wednesday’s blog, I found another angel song that touched me; and also another scripture about angels. I’m so happy to find my angels again. Happy Saturday.
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. Revelation 5:11
St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) is one of my favorite people of history mainly because of his “Channel of Peace” prayer which when sung or listened to can bring a semblance of peace to a weary soul. The prayer is also a wonderful way to embrace life on a daily basis. Happy Sunday.
Here’s a quote by Mark Twain, “I have spent most of my life worrying about things that never happened.” Sound familiar? Happy Saturday.
