With This Faith…

Standard

“With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And this will be the day — this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning:

My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.

Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride,

From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King, excerpt from ‘I Have a Dream” speech

Shine On…

Standard

Today I felt the need to post 2 entries.
Be inspired. Be blessed. SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON THE WORLD! Enjoy and remember: No life’s worth more than any other, No sister worth less than any brother….so SHINE ON and Let your heart be boundless, Like your faith in The One….! (video below)

“Shine on
All my people who’ve been broken-hearted
Shine on
From the place where all life had been started
When you need fresh air
Go beyond horizons
To your place in the sun
Shine on
Let your heart be boundless
Like your faith in The One.

It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
No stopping to this warfare
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
We’re breathing in the same air
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
You don’t care
No stopping to this warfare
And you don’t care
No

Sing on
From the language of your ancestors and
Sing on
Be playful in your innocence and
Lift your head up high
And rejoice for all you see
Without your eyes
Sing on
Like a bird that’s making love in sunset skies

It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
No stopping to this warfare
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
We’re breathing in the same air
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care

No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother
No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother
No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother
No life’s worth more than any other
No sister worth less than any brother

It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
No stopping to this warfare
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
We’re breathing in the same air
It’s crazy, crazy, crazy
Don’t tell me that you don’t care
You don’t care
No stopping to this warfare
You don’t care

Somebody, please
Send us a prayer.” – Michael Franti featuring Spearhead

Fight Worry with Faith

Standard

“Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles; it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie ten Boom

My mother always says “worry is a mild form of atheism”.  I find this to be true for anyone–no matter what their spiritual or religious beliefs are.  Sometimes we get consumed with worry about a problem or situation that we add more negative energy to the situation. We need to consciously practice the art of meeting our problems, head on, with an attitude of faith that it will be resolved, in due time.  Imagine if we all viewed every situation with the notion that the issue is temporary and the resolution is forthcoming–we’d all be better problem solvers and definitely less stressed!
