Weekend Wisdom Courtesy of So Hyang

Good Morning. Here is your wake up call – no coffee necessary. This video appeared in my Facebook news feed when it was shared by Kevin Sorbo.

While I still prefer Elvis’ version, So Hyang does a wonderful job singing Bridge Over Troubled Water. 

May this lift your spirit today.

Enjoy!

Simon and Garfunkel 

“Bridge Over Troubled Water”

When you’re weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I’ll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on, silvergirl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Weekend Wisdom: How to Shine Your Armor

The positive verse for this week was Ephesians 10:13

.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

So it is only appropriate to end this week with this quote from William Cowper

Restraining prayer, we cease to fight;

Prayer keeps the Christian’s armor bright;

And Satan trembles when he sees

The weakest saint upon his knees. 

For Satan knows God hears and answers every prayer.

Praying When The Going Gets Tough

I know it is tough to pray when things are not going your way. It’s been an 8 year battle to find a job that pays the bills. The job’s I’ve had have kept me financially limping. Through it all prayers of all shapes and sizes were prayed and continue to be prayed.

But it is not time for God to answer prayers related to my career.

He will answer them in His own time.

Just as He will answer your prayers.

Let’s Make A Deal

I will keep shinning my armor with prayer if you keep shinning your armor with prayer.

Deal?!

 

Official Irish Blessing of JoyReturns

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

In honor of the Kearns ancestors who came here from Ireland, here is the official Irish blessing of JoyReturns:

 

“May green be the grass you walk on,

May blue be the skies above you,

May pure be the joys that surround you,

May true be the hearts that love you.”

 

Enjoy the day in moderation.
