I am confused. . . but most of all I am a Christian Conservative.

Dear Ivan

Recently ran across this old song by Jimmy Dean.  Not so much music as a great “talking” message.   If I can find this on youtube I will try to add it here.

Our world needs to heal itself and I wish we could all start right here and right now.   Please listen to this a couple of times and just relax and listen.

Ferlin Husky – I Saw God

An old country song I love. I dearly wish todays artists had the faith and values that the older artist did.

The Things Men Do – Rod McKuen

The Things Men DoRod McKuenFrom the album “Sold Out – Rod McKuen Live at Carnegie Hall”, 1969

(I still have this original record – it is one of my favorites)


It makes me cry to see the things
Some men do to one another
Makes me cry to see the things some men do.

Every street’s a battlefield and every door’s a jail
And never the sword and not the shield
Can stay the widow’s wail.
I cannot understand, I will not understand
Why freedom stumbles in our land
And it makes me cry to see the things
Some men do to one another
Makes me cry to see the things some men do.

Every road’s a bitter road and songs are only songs
And when in church children kneel
They cannot right the wrongs
I cannot understand, I will not understand
Why terror rumbles in our land
And it makes me cry to see the things
Some men do to one another
Makes me cry to see the things some men do.

Every night’s a lonesome night that lasts a lonesome year
And torches all the brighter burn
To burn away the fear
I cannot understand, I will not understand
Why freedom staggers in our land.
And it makes me cry to see the things
Some men do to one another
Makes me cry to see the things some men do.


 

 

Does God Have A Sense Of Humor

Another short post.     I believe that God does have a sense of humor,  how else can you explain zebras?     And there is this:    God gave me a love of music of all kinds and there is very little that I don’t listen to (there are exceptions and they are Rap music and Opera);  I love music that I find on YouTube that is older than I am and a lot of music by folks that I have never heard of.   (the other shoe dropping)  however God did not give me any talent to play an instrument or to sing  – yep my singing voice is terrible but I still sing if the right song is playing (Under the Boardwalk by the Drifters is one of them).

 

 

 

You Tube Music, Jeff Bridges

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled on songs by Jeff Bridges I had never heard.   Now I know I am an old fart BUT  I urge everyone to give them a listen – I have been listening to them almost everyday for a week or so and they are GREAT!

I will try to link to one of them here (be patient).

Sweet Old Fashioned Girl
