I feel so grateful. It’s cold outside, but warm inside of me. Even with all the global disturbances and losses and illnesses around me. Even as I know all of life catches up to all of us…I feel so grateful. It’s the peace and joy of knowing there is a Higher Authority who has me covered. I could believe this. But I step beyond belief to knowing. I love the words of the child’s nighttime prayer, “If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.” Every day the possibility of the Lord taking my soul becomes closer and closer to the probability. And yet, "I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m free…” And to have this opportunity to share with you, my friends, fans and family is an extra, added bonus. I live my life in the mode of thanksgiving…with a faith that passes understanding. Even as we deal with the loss, and agony of this period when we have been invaded by the horrors of this virus ... even as we deal with unprecedented political turmoil...even as we recognize our own human frailties...let's live our lives so that we can be a blessing to each other. Let's be a reason for someone else to give thanks.
Love and realness,
