So what now? (Part Two)

So what now?

This was the “question of the hour.” I posed it on November 9th, and it still is the “question of the hour’ today!

As of noon, on January 20, 2017, the United States of America has a new President. At the same time, this Country faces a kind of divide we have never faced before. Slightly less than half of the people in the Country are thrilled with the new President and are feeling energized, happy and encouraged about the future. A little bit more than half of the Country is not happy at all with the new President and are feeling sad, worried and scared for themselves and the Country.

Wait…Music has words too?

Music is such an important part of our lives. Even if we can’t “carry a tune” or play an instrument, music truly can “soothe the savage beast.”

During the Holiday Season, you can’t go anywhere without hearing a familiar song in stores, friends’ homes, church, in the car or family gatherings. If you’re like me, I’ll bet you’ve even caught yourself from time to time singing along, even if only in secret.

We’ve heard our favorite songs, both Holiday, popular or even religious, so often that the words almost automatically pop into our minds. We “think along” or sing along with them “naturally.”
