Sunday Reflection: Quick Memory ~ 2/28/21

I’ve been praying a lot lately. Seems like I found my way back home after a momentary lapse. Today I stumbled across a memory from FB. Here is what I wrote six years ago ‘on this day’. Two pics from my days in grade school at St. Margaret Mary’s… I have met a lot of special people in my life, but I think the folks I went to grade school with were, and still are some of the best…

As always, more to come.

#SLS ~ 2/28/21

Jim prompts us with Breeze/Cloud/Sky/Wind. Tons of good songs using those words. How can I choose but one? Well since I’ve been listening to my Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, “Spirit in the Sky” Writer: Norman Greenbaum has become an earworm. Guess I’ll stick with it. Here is an interesting backstory for the song from Norman himself.

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best

Prepare yourself you know it’s a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He’s gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
Gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
That’s where you’re gonna go when you die
When you die and they lay you to rest
You’re gonna go to the place that’s the best

Never been a sinner. I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He’s gonna set me up with
The spirit in the sky
Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best
Go to the place that’s the best
