Not too long ago I re-watched Hello Dolly, and also watched Funny Girl for the first time. Needless to say I’ve been on a Barbra Streisand kick ever since! (If you don’t know who she is, all you have to do is listen.)
While listening to a Youtube playlist, I came across a duet Barbra sang with Josh Groban, my other favorite voice! I was ecstatic. After that I got on a little Josh Groban kick (again), and came across a certain song I’ve heard before, but it hit me in a whole new way this time.
So I invite you to listen to my little song compilation: People by Barbra (from Funny Girl), Hidden Away by Josh, and You’re All I Know Of Love by Barbra and Josh.
The fire beneath is of orange and black
A gift to souls full of lack
Hunger feeds, rising recedes
The earth is full of such glory
Commanding, contrasting, contemplating
Slow down, confound, compound, relax
Let go, too slow, don’t show, too much
Some seasons change and stay the same
Creaking, creeping, crawling, cautious
Wary sinners, weeping, wanting
Once in a lifetime, never again
Old senses dawn new thought
Drink up, drink deep, drink well
It’s here for you, so take it
Over and over, never will fail
Stars breathed to life
In His arms lies us all
To rest is to trust
To have faith beyond sight
To not know but assured
when it’s out of your hands
To believe is to live with your life
what you know in your head
To remember His faithfulness
is what faith really is
Just stumbled across this site in my entrepreneurial pursuits, and it blew my mind! Actually, I have my mom to credit for finding it. But this is awesome, not just for the idea itself, but for all the ideas people come up with to sell for $5! Fiverr.com is a website where people sell a wide variety of skills, services or resources for $5. The simplicity of it is sweet, and the ideas people come up with to sell are both entertaining and impressive!
It’s true that it’s a great way to under sell yourself, however if you’re smart with it you can sell simple tasks or abilities you have that you enjoy doing – for me, playing with photos – and get paid for it! Even if it’s just a few bucks, it can add up quick!
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious – the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
“This is true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy”
-George Bernard Shaw
When is love gentle, and when does it rage?
When is it honest, and when does it save?
What can I trust, when can I speak?
Where does the truth and my feelings meet?
Can I trust myself, catch a glimpse of liberty high on the shelf.
To what does my soul bring, to what does it sing.
What do I wait for, what do I mean?
How long, how far, how come, why?
Who knows, wind blows, snow’s cold.
How soon, how near, how goes the storm?
Need to stay safe, need to stay warm.
All I have, and can give, these liquid prayers.
And thanks for goodness I know that is not yet here.
