Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

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.

Now enjoy this video of Elvis singing American Trilogy during his Aloha from Hawaii concert (1973).

Thank you for your service Elvis, and for your concert that helped raise money for the USS Arizona Memorial Fund.



Return To Weekend Wisdom

How Weekend Wisdom Was Born

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.

The Return

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. 

“If I Can Dream”

Elvis – 1968 Comeback Special 

May your dreams and your soul fly high this week – and always.

Sing It Elvis 

You will have to click the link to hear one of the greatest Elvis performances ever.  No matter what I do, the video will not appear.

31 Days of Joy: Day 20 – The Truth About God’s Word

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever. 

Isaiah 40:8

Words like:

  • Genesis 1:1
  • Deuteronomy 33:27
  • Leviticus 18:22
  • Job 22:2
  • Proverbs 3:5
  • Ecclesiastes 7:10
  • Song of Songs 1:1
  • Jeremiah 28:9
  • Lamentations 3:22
  • Habakkuk 3:2
  • Malachi 4:6
  • Matthew 1:1
  • Luke 5:31
  • John 1:14
  • Romans 8:28
  • Ephesians 5:17
  • 1 Timothy 5:8
  • Revelation 22:21

All these verses and those in between them are the word of God. You may or may not believe them but they will last for all eternity.

What man says and the rules and laws he institutes will not last.  They will go bye-bye.

The words of our great, loving, generous and forgiving God are forever and that brings me great joy.
