“Your will above all else my purpose remains
The art of losing myself in bringing you praise
Everlasting, your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, your glory goes beyond all fame”
When we think all around has fallen, it’s good to know that God’s thoughts for us are good. His love is amazing. Seek him with all of your heart. He is waiting to share so much with you – wonderful things. Even things you never thought possible. Remember that with God, ALL things are possible!
Throwing everybody for a loop with the first Midnight Music Break. I thought it apropos to have a Jason Mraz penned song about sleeping and dreaming. As a lyricist (as well as a singer and musician), I hold Mr. A-Z in highest of regard. The way he structures a song and the way he delivers it can be both simplistic and beautifully complicated, especially with the help of one Toca Rivera and his amazing vocals. Enjoy. “…I don’t mind”
In this day and age of high technology and finger tip information it is sad that we have lost our ability to truly communicate and understand one another. There is such a disconnect when we text, email and use social media. Many don’t see a problem but there is. So much can be (and is) misconstrued simply because we choose what we think to be an easier way. Granted, there are times when proximity can be a problem but for the most part we don’t allow ourselves or others a chance to respond. That’s the beauty of going to the source. There’s an ebb and flow of talking face to face. It not only gives us the chance to voice our thoughts but the opportunity to listen. The art of conversation might be dead but it doesn’t have to be so if we just go to the source, talk and listen. You’d be surprised at what can happen.
In keeping with today’s post about life’s shifts, how wonderful to know that no matter what happens in life, God never fails. Stand strong in the knowledge that He will never leave or forsake you. You may fail others. Others may fail you. God is always there with loving hands wide open saying “I am the same today and forever”.
Life can shift on you in a blink of an eye. Sometimes, people who you thought were going to always be by your side are easily swayed by opinions of others or doubts in their mind. They might think you aren’t worth anything or as they say in the calles, “ain’t worth shit”. That’s fine. Keep grinding. Keep moving. You may move a little bit at first but in time you will build momentum. If people can stay by your side through your worst, they are the ones you can call and know to be a friend. Pain is temporary. Quitting is forever. No matter what might be said or done, don’t quit during the shifts of life.
Jefe may have the worst of days but if he hears, Here Comes The Sun, his day automatically gets brighter (pun intended). This beautiful version of said song is wonderful in so many ways. If you live under a rock and never heard Here Comes The Sun, then you would not know the song is about hope and optimism. What better place to play such song than an unemployment office. I think people may miss the symbolic gesture when viewing the first time. I shared this video with a friend and it went over her head. That’s OK. Funny, but OK.
On this Good Friday, be blessed to know that love still conquers all. There is a hope in knowing that death could not hold him down. The power of his love is still available to us all. Look, here comes the son!
