For sometime now, a song or a single lyric floats into my head. I notice that if I let that song set the tone for the rest of the day, I am good. Today after Daily Mass -when really a lot of happy things happen, no matter what is going on in the world outside -I came home, happy!
This song lyric floated into my head. So I googled it..thank God for Holy Google! Found several versions on You Tube. Dolly Parton and Willy Nelson sang it and Marie Osmond. I post this version because I grew up in Malaysia listening to Donny and Marie Osmond. Donny and Marie whether they know it or not are my brother and sister. I have begun to walk on a path that seeks an undeterred good. ….I have 6.5 billion relatives…if someone persecutes me, I’ll just run into the arms of those who will shelter me…carry on that way till I get to God and that home in heaven God has promised me.
The Osmonds were not censored in Malaysia – what was there to censor? It was good clean music. That is what I see from my end of the window. I pray to God for the grace to see good, to rehearse it, sing it and play that in my mind, like a prayer.
