Here Comes The Sun!


Sheryl Crow sings ths song at the end of the Bee Movie (which is great).
But I just LOVED this song.
Apparently it is an old George Harrison song (Beatles) and it was a special song to him personally.

Here Comes the Sun
by George Harrison


Here comes the sun,
here comes the sun, and I say it's all right
Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right
Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
It's all right

Here's the video.

Your blog is all sunshiny too. I didn't know there was a remake of that song. I will have to look out for the movie if it is fun. :0)

Cute movie isnt' it? I like this song, but because it's associated with George Harrison's spiritual journey into Hari Krishna and the Indian stuff surrounding it, it loses it's edge for me but hey for us we can sing here comes the SON! Yay!

Thanks for lifting me up today, I like this song.

Heidi - thanks! That's what I was hoping for!

Leslie - Why, thank you, Ma'am! :)

Karen - I thought so! See, now never having been a Beatles fan (not even my parents liked them) I didn't know that...just when I looked for the video and lyrics I found this phrase about it being personal for him...hmmm...sad that he was lost. (One time on the blogs I saw a discussion as to whether people were Beatles or Stones fans...& EVERYONE was chosing Beatles - Yikes! Me, I was not too much of either - but, if I had to pick it'd HAVE to be Rolling Stones!)

Denise - you are most welcome! That's what I was aiming for! Glad to manage that!

To All: Praying your week is filled with healing, strength and & restoration!

I took Julia to see this when it was at the movies. It is a bright cheery movie.
And hey, we can sing here comes the SON---for He is coming back real soon!
And that should make everyday bright and sunny!
Have a good week girl-a good week in Him.

I've always like that song.

That is a great song. I must watch that Bee Movie. It looks really funny.

Sharon - I'm very much looking forward to that! On all counts! You have a great week, too!

Karolee - You know, I am sure I have heard it before, but it never moved me like it did Saturday night when we watched the movie. Weird, huh?

Bunny Girl - It's a fun, silly movie. If you like Jerry Seinfeld & if you like Patrick Warburton (not sure of the spelling) you will like the humor. We think they are both really funny.

Ya'll, while I was just finishing writing a post, my hubby was playing with the XM radio on the satellite dish, and he founf KC & The Sunshine Band singing "Shake Your Bootie"! LOL! Too funny! If you don't remember, think 1978ish!

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!
