I Sing Because I'm Happy #happygolucky #sisteract

Everyone should have a “happy song”. You know, the song that automatically starts playing in the soundtrack of your life when something awesome and amazing happens.  Yes, I know some people are not musically inclined so they may not “get” it.  That’s okay, you have an mp3 player or a smart phone, so you can play along. Literally.  There are a few songs out there that always are there for me to choose from.  A lot of my friends know that I like to make an entrance.  Actually I like walking into a room and bust out singing. I have to say when you have a distinctive voice people know it a mile away.

 

Maybe it’s divine spirit working through me. Maybe it’s that I am always just amazed at the sounds my vocal chords can make. I actually am a baritone/bass, but I sing tenor. I have am amazing range, so I have been told. Anyway, one of my all time favorite happy songs is “Eye on the Sparrow”, which was popularized by the movie Sister Act 2, and also “Oh Happy Day”.  I have also heard that the music you listen to on a daily basis has a direct impact on your overall well being.  Listening to gospel music or music with a spiritual undertone can significantly improve you mental attitude.  If I haven’t mentioned it before, if you use Pandora Radio, you can stream soft meditation music all day long. Just make a “Reiki” channel and you will hear soft flutes, chimes and bells that will quickly put you in that state.  Music and sound are energy. Like all energy it can be charged with positive or negative vibrations.

 

So I just wanted to share that Easter is coming soon. For you Catholics out there, I am sure you are very well aware of it. For the non-Catholics God worshiping children it might not be such a big deal.  You can eat meat whenever you want to, and not because the pope told you not eat it.   If you are cut from the same bolt of cloth as me then you “might” just want to come to Mile Hi Church on April 20th for our glorious performance, at the 6 am, 8 am, 10 am, or noon service.  The choir will be performing “Joyful, Joyful” from Sister Act 2. It should be a lot of fun.  Christmas and Easter tend to be the biggest turn out for non-church folk to venture out and enter the house of the Lord.  So expect that there will be a LOT of peeps out on Easter, and I don’t mean the marshmallow chicken.  And if I am not mistaken, there is no streaming service for Easter.  Darn, gotta get out of bed and be thankful that God sacrificed his son for man so that we may life a life of freedom.

 

“I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m FREE. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know he watches me.”
