1. He fills the Sky with dark and Light.
He holds the Land in loving hands.
He calms the sea in waves of Peace,
One God for all the great and small.
Refrain:

2. He planned our birth upon this earth,
The perfect time for us to shine.
The Word was born to give us form.
One God who cares is everywhere.
Refrain:

He lifts our souls to fly and sing!

Refrain:
He’s not a God we cannot know!
The Father made and loves us so!
Created for his purpose here,
We’re made with wonder and with fear,
Not of the evil power of dark,
But awe inspired by the spark
Of God who lives in everything
And lifts our souls to fly and sing!

1. How this world works seems pretty crazy.
And looking out the view is kinda hazy.
We see a puzzle piece,
But the picture is complete.
With grace in place it’s nothing but amazing!
Refrain:

2. We take some knocks and do a lot of learning.
We make mistakes and watch the bridges burning.
We pull our lives apart,
But there’s wholeness in our hearts.
Forget regret and ride the tide that’s turning!
Refrain:

3. We breathe it in and realize we are growing,
The gentle voice inside us always knowing.
And every time we fall,
There’s an answer to our call.
We manifest the best when we keep going!
Refrain: (Twice)

Refrain:
One Spirit works in everything
To lift us up in love, and soar above the scene
On great eternal wings.
We have eternal wings!

Ideas of Love

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Valentine’s Day is upon us. Are you tired of the marketing yet? Society loves to skew our ideas of love! It’s no wonder we can’t find it – or find what we think love is. Honestly we have no clue what we’re looking for. And by not knowing, we’re missing the purpose of life, which is to love!

Romantic relationships are part of that, or at least the positive ones are. But right now especially, we overlook the love we have by searching for something else. Someone said, “Life is what happens while we’re making other plans.” And, “Man plans; God laughs.” True statements… But there is hope, and there is love, in this very moment, whether we have romance in our lives or not.

Love is infinite, eternal, and universal. That means love is yours, mine, and everyone’s. May this song, as limited as it is, remind us to snap out of it, laugh at the marketing, and have a Happy Valentine’s Day with those forms of love we already have!

This does not mean we should ignore our desire for other forms of love. In fact, ignoring it is detrimental. However, if we focus on what we don’t have, we get more negativity. By fully embracing the love in our experience, we open the door to more! And we feel better in the meantime, because we’re not living in lack. Life already loves us! Why not love it in return?

May we learn to love from the Spirit of Love that created us! And may we improve a society that believes love can be bought and sold!

Ideas of Love – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain:
Let go of your ideas of love,
And let the Father show you his!
Let go of your ideas of love,
And see the good already in your life to give you bliss.

1. Children love a pizza just as much as they love you.
They focus on the happiness it brings.
They love their bikes and friends and toys and makin’ messy things.
Kids really pick the perfect thing to do!
Refrain:

2. Our cats and dogs, they love to run and greet us comin’ in.
They know the fullest happiness right now.
Pets eat and play and sleep and play, and people wonder how.
But we could take a tip or two from them!
Refrain:

3. Love is the greatest of connections God has made in us.
It flows through all our time and breath and space.
Let’s use it everywhere we go to look in every face.
The love we give is never given up!
Refrain:

Let go of your ideas of love!

If you haven’t broken your New Year’s resolutions yet, this song is not for you. But listen anyway, because you’ve probably broken one before. It’s time to put this phenomenon in its proper place, so we can move on and live well!

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. So we made our resolutions
To start a revolution,
But they must be delusions
‘Cause we feiled ’em, every one.
The time and money saving,
The work to quit the craving,
But what’s the use of raving
When a new day has begun!
Refrain

2. May we never stop resolving,
Connecting and involving,
Progressing and evolving
Til we make it, every one.
And give our hearts in caring,
Extend our hands in sharing,
And let our minds be daring
For a better way has come!
Refrain: (Twice)

Let us exercise our right to try again!

Refrain:
And we can exercise our right to try again,
start anew and simply do the best we can!
And if we fail and try and fail again,
We just engage the backup plan
And exercise our right to try again.
We exercise our right to try again!

Refrain:
Your compassion is your humanity!
Let it warm you and set your Spirit free.
It won’t take away anything you need today.
It makes the world brighter, you agree.
Your compassion is your humanity!

1. Many folks are doin’ things
You don’t think they should do.
Well, how about considering
That they have feelings too?
You don’t live the life they’re livin’,
But there’s something you can give them.
Compassion is the key!
Refrain:

2. All the woes and worries
That you get into your head,
From sun up until sundown,
When you’re in and out of bed.
But you can’t see it all,
‘Cause you don’t have a crystal ball.
Compassion is the key!
Refrain:

3. People tell you not to
Think about yourself.
But if you don’t even care,
Then why should anybody else?
Give the gift of time
To your body and your mind.
Compassion is the key!
Refrain:

Be a human now!
Your compassion is your humanity!

So

Choice Is Voice

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
How we spend our money,
Actions, words, and time,
There’s an awful lot of spending
That goes on in this life!
How we spend our energy,
Feelings, and thoughts,
The product ought to fit the price
Of what we spent in cost!

1. We don’t have to be broke
Or wonder which way’s up
Or try to drink from that half empty,
Cracked financial cup.
It’s gonna take some time,
But starting is a choice.
We know where our money goes,
And we still have a voice!
Refrain:

2. It becomes a habit,
What we say and do,
How we treat each other
And our fellow beings too.
It takes a conscious mind
To choose a better way.
Let’s speak for the Light in us
With every choice we make!
Refrain:

3. We criticize in judgment,
But so much is not true.
And we feel sad and tired
Like our energy is through.
But every day is new.
Remember why we’re here:
To live in Love and freedom
With the Spirit bright and clear!
Refrain:

We make the product fit the price
Of what we spent in cost!

Fruit Salad

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Happy New Year to each one of you, your friends, family, loved ones, and every person you encounter!

Not all people are easy to get along with, but that’s part of the fruit salad of life! If nothing else, they help us appreciate those fruits–people, events, and situations–we prefer.

I don’t know what this year holds for me, much less for you. One thing I do know, life is a fruitful experience when we give thanks for every aspect, by the Power of the Universe working through us!

Fruit Salad – Lyrics

Interestingly enough, the refrain and each verse is a
Limerick,
creating a song with a light, but important message.

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar
(capo 3)

Refrain:
O life is a salad of fruit
With cherries and lemons to boot.
The sour is sad,
The bitter is bad,
So in every blessing, salute!

1. Mango and pineapple sing.
Oranges and strawberries ring.
The blueberries burst
With flavor at first,
The sweetness a marvelous thing!
Refrain:

2. Lemons and limes are sublime
And better off one at a time.
They burst with a bang
Of terrible tang,
The power to cleanse is divine!
Refrain:

3. Bananas and apples and grapes,
The fruits that most people will take.
But bursting and blessed
Are all of the rest.
So open on up and partake!
Refrain: (Twice)

‘Cause life is a salad of fruit!

Love Is Born

Merry Christmas and a happy celebration of Light to everyone, everywhere!

Birth of Christ

There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises:
Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.
–Luke 2:8-14 The Message (MSG)

And when the child of promise came, a man in snow-white robe appeared to them, and they fell back in fear. The man stood forth and said, Fear not! behold I bring you joyful news. At midnight in a cave in Bethlehem was born the prophet and the king that you have long been waiting for. And then the shepherds all were glad; they felt that all the hills were filled with messengers of light, who said, All glory be to God on high; peace, peace on earth, good will to men.
–Aquarian Gospel 3:10-13

Love Is Born!

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
Sing hosanna! Go bananas!
‘Cause Love is born in this world today!
Share the Sun with everyone,
And lift your heart in praises to the One who lights the way!

1. There’s a Light in this world
That everybody sees
When we put aside the fruits of pride
And let our difference be!
And the Perfect One,
The Precious Sun,
Is born in every human heart
To love and set us free!
Refrain:

2. Maybe you have heard
The Bible’s Word
Of Christ the Lord who came so poor
To make us rich indeed!
Or you could take
Another way;
It doesn’t matter, Love has come
To fill our every need!
Refrain:

3. If the All is One
And One is All,
Then how could Spirit come to some
And let the others fall?
Now your path is bright
With brilliant Light:
The Power of the Universe
Is Love to great and small!
Refrain: (Twice)

Sing hosanna!
And lift your heart in praises to the One who lights the way!
