Saturday's Song!




I know some of us talk about songs...having lyrics in our head....
I can't play an instrument or sing a note (that sounds good!:) but,
I LOVE music and songs and the whole crazy thing!


Many of us don't get a chance to write posts on the weekend,
but we all like to browse...so,
I have been wanting to start this Saturday's Song thing.


Today's song is (it's corny, Ya'll! but, so am I sometimes!)
You Are My Sunshine!
(As Sung by Ricky Nelson)

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other night dear as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke dear I was mistaken
And I held my head and cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
Please don't take my sunshine away
Please don't take my sunshine away
Please don't take my sunshine away

Ally! Hi there! I am coming back over to see some more of yours as well! I really enjoyed the devotional you posted, and loved the message to that art work!

Hi, Leslie! I just had it in my head yesterday - so I had to spread the sunshine! LOL!

Cec, You all can sing? What a treat! I get the giggles just imagining my Mom & my sis & I trying that! Wooo-Whooo! We could break glass or ear drums or somehthing! (Love ya' Mom & Sis!) Seriously though, what fun memories for you all to do that! You are just too clever!

Hey, Matchbox mom! That is so sweet! I sang to mine too, long, long day ago! For my youngest is was some silly ditty (Mama's lil' baby loves shortenin' shortenin' Mama's lil' baby loves shortenin' bread!), then I made a song for him, that is the one that stuck!

Thanks for sining along, Ya'll!

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
