That’s right! If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know January 8th rarely, if ever, goes by without a tribute to Elvis Presley – STILL the king of rock n roll.
If you are like me, you need to periodically escape for a few moments to cope with life. This song provides me with a temporary musical escape. It restores my heart, mind and soul for Jesus is our bridge over life’s troubled waters.
Let Elvis’ version of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water ease your mind and provide a temporary escape.
Thank you God for bringing Elvis into the world 86 years ago today.
Did you know that on March 25th, 1961 a concert took place to help raise funds for the USS Arizona Memorial Fund. The line up included Floyd Cramer, the Jordanaires, jazz saxophonist Boots Randolph, and comedienne Minnie Pearl. The headliner was Elvis.
The prospect of blogging 7 days a week was very intimidating, so I only posted 5 days a week when I started blogging.
Then one day, I came up with the idea of posting uplifting poems, quotes, scripture or song lyrics on the weekend. That way I was posting 7 days a week but only writing original posts 5 days a week – and so Weekend Wisdom was born.
It went away for the 31 Days of Joy in October, but it is now back at least until the holidays.
I was not planning on bringing back Weekend Wisdom until next weekend but these lyrics stood out as I was listening to this song yesterday. I knew I had to Return To Sender Weekend Wisdom today.
But as long as a man has the strength to dream,
he can redeem his soul and fly.
