I just love Sarah. My favorite is Fumbling towards Ectasy(Sp). That was the first album of hers that I had ever heard. I listened to it over and over and over. I have most of her work, but nothing lately. In the arms of an angel makes me cry.
Here is a poem that I try to live by. I hope that you all enjoy this.
It is called Desiderata. I think that it has a good way of looking at life.
Sometimes life seems hard to bear,Full of sorrow, trouble and woeIt's then I have to remember,That it's in the valley I grow,If I always stayed on the mountain top,And never experienced pain,I would never appreciate God's love,And would be living in vain.I have so much to learn,And my growth is very slow,Sometimes I need the mountain tops,But it's in the valley I grow.I do not always understand,Why things happen as they do,But I am very sure of one thing.My Lord will see me through.My little valleys are nothing,When I picture Christ on the crossHe went through the valley of death;His victory was Satan's loss.Forgive me Lord, for complaining,When I'm feeling so very low.Just give me a gentle reminder,This it's in the valleys I grow.Continue to strengthen me,Lord, And use my life each dayTo share your love with others,And help them find their way.Thank you for valleys, Lord,For this one thing I knowThe mountain tops are glorious,But it's in the valleys I grow!!!!!!!!
I prefer movies.I prefer cats.I prefer the oaks along the Warta.I prefer Dickens to Dostoyevsky.I prefer myself liking peopleto myself loving mankind.I prefer keeping a needle and thread on hand, just in case.I prefer the color green.I prefer not to maintainthat reason is to blame for everything.I prefer exceptions.I prefer to leave early.I prefer talking to doctors about something else.I prefer the old fine-lined illustrations.I prefer the absurdity of writing poemsto the absurdity of not writing poems.I prefer, where love's concerned, nonspecific anniversariesthat can be celebrated every day.I prefer moralistswho promise me nothing.I prefer cunning kindness to the over-trustful kind.I prefer the earth in civvies.I prefer conquered to conquering countries.I prefer having some reservations.I prefer the h*** of chaos to the h*** of order.I prefer Grimms' fairy tales to the newspapers' front pages.I prefer leaves without flowers to flowers without leaves.I prefer dogs with uncropped tails.I prefer light eyes, since mine are dark.I prefer desk drawers.I prefer many things that I haven't mentioned hereto many things I've also left unsaid.I prefer zeroes on the looseto those lined up behind a cipher.I prefer the time of insects to the time of stars.I prefer to knock on wood.I prefer not to ask how much longer and when.I prefer keeping in mind even the possibilitythat existence has its own reason for being.
I found some song lyrics today online that i would like to share:
"I SHALL OVERCOME" by HARD-FI
New day dawning, I wonder what it holds for me,Sun is shining, I Don't think that it will shine on meI look around, nothing seems to have changed,This dirty town, it hasn't some how rearrangedAnd I stand up, but I get knocked straight back down,"Just give it up" they say, "We just don't want you aroundNot one of us, and we don't like to share."Mouthful of dust, but I'll get even I swear...I hear your voice, call my name, but in my heart, It's still pouring rain,And it ain't pretty, no it ain't pretty...But you say "Hold on, hold on... believe me,All the plans against you one by one, will come undone."I shall overcome.Through my tears, I try to see your face,But doubt and fear come calling, and crowd my head with words of hate,I scream out please! Don't leave me hear alone,Down on my knees, without you and without hope...I hear your voice, call my name, but in my heart, It's still pouring rain,And it ain't pretty, no it ain't pretty...But you say "Hold on, hold on... believe me,Love is here and I won't let you down, stand your ground.Hold on, hold on... It's easy,All the plans against you one by one, will come undone."I know I shall overcome.Just in time you call my name, pull myself up, to fight again.I'll never let you down..."Hold on, hold on... believe me,Love is here and I won't let you down, stand your ground.Hold on, hold on... It's easy,All the plans against you one by one, will come undone."I know I shall overcome.
