Precious Memories


Life is full of precious memories.

Since 1965 Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers has been one of my favorite songs, and my youngest son, even in his teens, was aware of this. He was born in 1967.

At his wedding in 2000 he chose this song as the mother and son dance. As you can guess, I was very touched.

I just heard the song yesterday, after a long time, and it brought tears to my eyes as I recalled one of my most precious memories, dancing with my youngest son at his wedding to his thoughtful choice of my favorite song. I hope you have the luxury of recalling some precious memories today. Happy Saturday.

All Things Bright and Beautiful


“All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small; all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.” Cecil Frances Alexander (1818 – 1895)

And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” Genesis 1:20

An Alabama photographer captured stunning photographs of a cardinal so rare that experts have referred to it as ‘one in a million.’ (Pinterest)

No matter the source, all things bright and beautiful are a sight to behold these days. Happy Sunday.

On Eagle’s Wings


I was intrigued by Joe Biden’s speech last night. Among many of the inspiring words he spoke, he mentioned a favorite hymn of his late son, Beau. It captured the faith that sustained Joe in his lifetime; a lifetime of much grief and sorrow. And yet he came through it with his faith intact and achieved his goal of being elected President of the United States after two previous attempts.

This hymn speaks to many of us, but not all of us hear it. Here then is On Eagle’s Wings sung by Josh Groban. Happy Sunday.

What the World Needs Now


How many would agree that our world is in a precarious position at this moment in time? With so much talk of working together and thinking of others, let’s also add a little bit more of what the world needs now. I can just hear you singing your heart out.

 

Climbing Mountains


Remembering childhood camp songs is one of my favorite things to do. I sang them to my children and their children; how many of them will remember, I have no idea. Here is one that helps keep a smile on some faces during this time of frowns and fears. Let’s climb Sunshine Mountain today. Happy Saturday.

Pass It On


There many things in everyday life that we can pass on to others in their time of need, namely:

A smile        A song        A good thought        A good word        A prayer        A special gift        A hug        A good deed         A word of encouragement

Whatever moves you to share…pass it on. Happy Saturday.

 

 

 

 

Oh What a Beautiful Day


I know that somewhere in the world there are snow storms, hurricanes, earthquakes and the like. But in my little corner of the world the sun is shining, the air is still, the leaves are moving gently on the trees and the temperature is perfect. It reminds me of an old song on a new day. Happy Saturday.

The Older I Am Getting


Yesterday I was introduced (not physically) to Alan Jackson, American country singer and song writer. I tuned him in on You Tube, heard this song, and thought it would be nice to share some music again.

We are all getting older but some of us are counting the few years we have left rather than the many years we have lived. Alan sums it up in his song, “The Older I Get.” It made me feel better about the older I am getting. (Alan is sixty years young.)
