Made me think...

Original recording from the chieftains album the bells of dublin

All the streets are filled with laughter and light
And the music of the season
And the merchants windows are all bright
With the faces of the children
And the families hurrying to their homes
As the sky darkens and freezes
Theyll be gathering around the hearths and tales
Giving thanks for all gods graces
And the birth of the rebel jesus

Well they call him by the prince of peace
And they call him by the savior
And they pray to him upon the seas
And in every bold endeavor
As they fill his churches with their pride and gold
And their faith in him increases
But theyve turned the nature that I worshipped in
From a temple to a robbers den
In the words of the rebel jesus

We guard our world with locks and guns
And we guard our fine possessions
And once a year when christmas comes
We give to our relations
And perhaps we give a little to the poor
If the generosity should seize us
But if any one of us should interfere
In the business of why they are poor
They get the same as the rebel jesus

But please forgive me if I seem
To take the tone of judgement
For Ive no wish to come between
This day and your enjoyment
In this life of hardship and of earthly toil
We have need for anything that frees us
So I bid you pleasure
And I bid you cheer
From a heathen and a pagan
On the side of the rebel jesus.

The wind of change.........

I suck at blogging... I write things, then delete them a couple of days later, thinking "That wasn't deep enough" I kept my free writing style of a summer summary up , because I needed to remember it , so I don't do that again.

This is going to be short... My life is changing, new connections, new focus, new friends, new rekindling of old friends, new hope...

To be continued...

A whirlwind summer

It has been quite a summer- I have been from Mississippi to Vegas (didn't even plan that) ...learned what my airline friends meant when they said " I really don't think you want to fly on a buddy pass" , had a daughter graduate, moved that daughter, and an adopted "son" to Minneapolis, been to at least 30 baseball games, ran completely out of money, wondered where my other daughter is in the middle of the night...laughed ,cried, yelled, cried some more...visited a town named Gayville that sold pink Gayville T-shirts that said "Yes Gayville is the real name now get over it" (see picture) made new Friends, got closer with the ones I have, found out what a Mojito is...grilled so much that I used a tank of propane in slightly over one month...feel like I am Lyndsay writing this in one long run on sentence...watched John try to remodel the dining room, watched my flowers grow(they are really nice this year), attended a wedding, a couple of graduation parties, cook outs. I have Not swam this entire summer, Weird.. I love to swim. I have wasted a of of time, I have procrastinated on a lot of things. I will probably think of about 17 other things in the middle of the night tonight, so this may be a to be continued...........Also it is only the middle of July!
