Whoa, 2 decades in 1 song- 70s and 80s. Another breath of fresh air.
Oh you know, just putting up a great show. I love Sara Bareilles, fuh real.
Enough said. JESUS.
A song that gives you a sense of coming home. The melody is soothing. Just what I need to calm my little storm.
I’ve been following her art lately. I gotta say, I am wildly impressed. Plus, the glow the artists and the music is giving is pretty lovely. Love everything from the people to the sound and to the ambience the video gives out.
There are days when I feel like I need a break from all the musical seriousness around me, not that it’s stressful or whatever, but sometimes I like to let my hair down and sneak off my *originally ‘your’* shoes (lyrics from Brooke Fraser’s ‘Coachella’) and just listen to whatever good, party, new, and clean song that’s on the waves right now. So, here’s a great one. Enjoy.
Just recently I was given prescription eyeglasses by my uncle who’s a neuro-optha-something. So now I see things real clear. I even told a bff that I can see the world. See the flowers sway, leaves fall from trees, and cats chasing petals (we were in UP at that time, explains the scenery hahaha). I can even see the little notes my violin teacher wrote on my music sheet. And see PowerPoint presentations even when I’m far back from the screen.
See, this is the same as not seeing what God has placed in front of us. We complain of things not going our way. Or we even blame others like their some plank hanging around our yard and block every good thing that’s set for us. That’s why we pray for open eyes, and sing ‘Open the Eyes of My Heart.’ Because we know our physical eyes can and will fail us. But our heart-eyes can see through actions, words, and hurts. These eyes help us appreciate God’s love for us through things we can’t even understand.
We are given sight through our physical eyes, but given vision through our heart-eyes.
Take me with You
Take me to Your arms
When I’m with You
The storm calms
Make me a home
I dream to live in a beautiful one
Endless as a poem
It will stay even when I’m gone
Have me rest in You
My soul stays with You
This is real
This is true
I’ve come home to You
You hold me tightly
I won’t slip
I am mending
~I have a home
I am living in a real one
This is my home
‘Til the days are done
~Pains rule our times
But we’ll do fine
With You the war’s
worth fighting hard
To be with You
I’ll wait with confidence and heart
~I’m resting in You
With You this home is true
I’ll live in love knowing I’ve found You
I’ll die in peace knowing that I loved You
I found home
I’ve got a home in You.
~Your heart could be someone else’s home. Keep it clean. Keep its eyes focused on the God of love.
God is love, love is God.
Since I was little my mind would usually fly from a sincere, serious position to a less strict, bubbly nest. It happens as quick as when your pupils dilate while adjusting with the lighting. It’s also the same thing as when you’re trying to write a post and then you can’t write any more words because you need an interruption to think of a continuation. I don’t know why this occurs to me, but I’m pretty sure it has helped me with my comedic life.
A semi-absent mind is what you’ll need when you want people to laugh at and with you. An attentive mind will lead you to listening to people’s thoughts and noticing their actions. You’ll need that if you want to imitate a person or do an impression of the same. An absent mind, on the other hand, will give you an opening to another, irrelevant joke. This is the part where people will laugh at you. You give them an impression that you’re dumb and you don’t know what’s happening around you. But see, this is a play. You make them think that you’re dumb, but what you’re really doing is you’re commanding the pace of the game. You’re the one who’s calling the shots. With your “absent” mind, you’d be able to have a pattern. When a friend of you tells a joke about something, you use your attentive mind so you keep that joke alive and running in your head (and do a perfect impression of it afterwards), then you do the “absent” play. After the joke’s died down, you will use your “attentive” mind to joke the joke again, and this time, it’s even funnier than before. This is how you’ll be using your semi-absent mind.
NOTE: For best results, use this while your friends are eating and drinking. You’ll see liquids scattered all around the place when you do this the right way.
