Get Back Up Again

     

Do you ever get discouraged? I do. I think we all do. Regardless of what we face in life, such as broken relationships, financial loss, and even blog stats taking a severe downturn 😦  we can not only live through it, we can keep going. Fortunately I married the most beautiful woman on the planet (inside and out) and she encourages me to keep fighting. 

I love the fact that there is always something that motivates us on the inside, to get back up. Some use positive thinking, some have faith, but we all have something in us that tells us not to quit. And if someday I don’t have a blog, I will still keep going. And I will have a lot more free time! But to be honest, I blog because I love to write. Thanks for reading!

Here is a song, be careful with your ears!

Her Violin Sings

In this video Lindsey Stirling is in New Zealand, and to be honest the scenery, and cinematography here is some of the most of beautiful I have seen! Gorgeous! The music is wonderful too. Even though the music is from the Lord of the Rings, there is nothing else from the movie here, so that’s why I gave the post the title, Her Violin Sings. By the way Lindsey actually sings here as well.

I’ve never been to New Zealand, but it’s on my list now, of a must see.

This video is inspiring. Have a great week!

First Friday – Touch the Sky

It’s the first Friday of the month! The experiment last week with the First Friday idea went very well. So here is some beautiful, faith based music. Tonight I plan to post something from the Psalms. This is a once a month feature.

I like this group, and I love this song. In this version of it there is no audience except us. They are in a cafe and it reminds me of some friends getting together, playing some music. There are no rock stars here. This song is very rich with meaning. On the one hand it is mellow, but it is also inspirational, especially towards the end. The words are incredible poetry, and are about connecting to the Creator through prayer.

Here are some of the lyrics:

My heart beating,

my soul breathing,

I found my life,

when I layed it down,

upward falling,

spirit soaring,

I touch the sky,

when my knees hit the ground.

Have a great weekend!

Peace.

First Fridays – Blessings

So I have this idea for the first Friday of each month. Yes I know it’s not August yet, but today is an experiment. The idea I have is that one day a month, I play music like this, have some commentary, or maybe some words from the Book of Psalms. I have faith and you can see that in the blog, but I know preaching makes people uncomfortable. I don’t like it either. Well ok, maybe once in a great while! You signed up for nature poems, love poems, quotes, and some stories with good endings, and I love writing in these ways. This is a creative writing blog. Yet there can be incredible beauty in faith.

So today I will see what kind of interest there is. You let me know. I really enjoy your comments, so please feel free.

This song by Laura Story is so incredibly beautiful, I really wanted to share it with you. I love the poetry here. We all go through tough times. Maybe there really is healing, in the tears.

River Flows in You

A simple video with extremely beautiful music. I love Lindsey Stirling’s music but sometimes simplicity is even more beautiful than special effects. This video is done with a violin and harp. Let your spirit soar.

Have a great rest of the week!

Peace.

Vamos amigos! Let’s go! I love this music, it is so alive. Have you ever wanted to lay down in a field of green and play music, or dance in the mountains? Let’s go! The photography in this piece is also excellent! Many of us are starting back to work from being off yesterday, so have a great week! It’s great having blogging friends. Vamos amigos! Hang on, here we go!

Traditional Irish Music

Happy Saturday! I’m in a mellow mood tonight. When I think of being mellow, I often think of Irish music. If you are worn out and in need of some rest, may today and tomorrow give you the rest you need!

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!
