Angel – By Sarah McLachlan
A song of luminous and sacred beauty. One that has the ability to stir your inner being with the softest imagery of grace. The line, “You’re in the arms of the angels.” http://youtu.be/i1GmxMTwUgs
There are times, we can feel overwhelmed. So much wrong in this place we call, the world. The one place that we can find comfort, is in our beliefs. Whatever they are. For some those beliefs include angels. Some find peace in getting back to nature and being able to hear the wind and feel the natural elements. Just to be able to have some alone time with the wind, trees, a gentle brook can bring about harmony for ones soul.
There are so many people who don’t even get a break now from the constant hum of city life, to be able to sit quietly, to hear the wind through the leaves. This regrouping is so important to our heart condition. We need the chance to just hear ourselves and listen to what we are, to what we need as a human being.
Sometimes this kind of peace can come to someone in the form of a song. Music can transform a person’s mood. There are times that I want something a bit on the wild side and other times something inspirational. This song helps me to bring back that inspiration and sense of something better than what I am currently living with.
Many folks believe in angels. I am one that does. Things sometimes happen that no one can explain. If we take the time to listen, to believe, I think that we can better our lives with the aid from somewhere beyond ourselves.
We are never too old to learn new and even more meaningful new things. In fact the older I get the more I glean from new lessons in life. It’s as if I can feel my great creator sayin, “Now that is what I’m talkin about.”
God's gifts are found all around us.
Yeah, this life is a wild ride, but it’s worth the seat if we ride it with love in our hearts, and compassion for our fellow human companions.
Do my words like shelter,
fall gently upon those that I love?
- Warm forest shelter

Should we all be upset with the way things are going in our government? Yes! We have all had to do some of our own cut backs in our own homes. We have had to figure out how to grow our money, so to speak. Why can’t our elected officials do the same? Simple, they are bought by big money from many areas. We need to say enough is enough. It’s time to voice our concerns. Forget the Tea Party, the new movement, Apathy No More!
Balance the deficit by cutting spending and raising revenue. We have had to do just that in our home. It’s not rocket science. Revenues can come from where the most CAN come from. Big oil can handle it, really. I think these big tycoons should step forward and volunteer at this moment in time, are they, no. Sad. What a, “all for ourselves,” society we all live in.
We true Americans, you know the ones that aren’t elected to be in Congress and sit there and not compromise should start our own party, Apathy no more! It’s way over due. While you all have your own health plans and security, you plan to strip us of everything. That is not what our Country’s original leaders were about. It’s time to Forget the Tea Party that is only about themselves and make decisions FOR, Americans. We want a balanced approach. My husband was a Republican and left the party a couple of years ago in utter disgust. Both parties need reform now! Balance your Deficit with compromise and true American ingenuity, it can be done.
