Musings From A Musical Mind

Daydreaming (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It’s another blast from the past when you hear a song like the one I featured below.  I don’t know about you – but for me when I hear songs about childhood and things that children think about while playing and daydreaming, I can so easily go there.  Childhood should be at a wonderful time of simplicity and developing a great imagination.  I know this is not the case for many.  This is so sad.  I had a healthy home environment, we never had a lot of material things or money, but it was a great happy time.  I had a very keen imagination, including imaginary friends, playing outside under trees, (I played by myself a little too much) a few stuffed animals, dolls and even porcelain animals that each had a special name.   I was able to entertain myself for hours at a time.  This was a time before cell phones, emails and internet – nothing but a record player, a tape recorder, a few TV channels and radio stations.   I learned to develop a love for books and an active imagination.

Can you relate?  Then you must be from my era – growing up in the 60’s and 70’s.  Enjoy the song and see what memories stir when you hear these great vocals and lyrics.

God Bless

I hear you call me, waterwheel
Spin round, round in a circle
Gracing my child dreams on fantasy hill
Spin round, round in a circle
Flash! paddles sending a spray to the air
Lately, my thoughts are still-
With you there as you spin round,
Round in a boyhood daydream
Spin round My thoughts are drifting to a quieter time
(spin round, round in a circle)
Green covered slippery water-rocks I used to climb
(spin round, round in a circle)
Father and child walking down by the canyon
Lately, my thoughts are still-
With them there as they spin round,
Round in a boyhood daydream

You Make My Dreams Come True

I double dog dare you – not to smile when listening to this song!  It makes me happy – heard it playing while getting ready this morning and had to post it!

This is dedicated to all the wonderful people in my life right now ♥

What I want you’ve got
And it might be hard to handle
Like the flame that burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame
What I’ve got’s full stock
Of thoughts and dreams that scatter
You pull them all together
And how I can’t explain

Well, well you, you make my dreams come true
Well, well, well you, you make my dreams come true

On a night when bad dreams become a screamer
When they’re messin with the dreamer
I can laugh it in the face
Twist and shout my way out
And wrap yourself around me
Cause I ain’t the way you found me
And I’ll never be the same

Well, well you, you make my dreams come true
Well, well, well you, you make my dreams come true
Listen to this

I’m down on my daydream
Oh that sleepwalk should be over by now I know

Well, well you, you make my dreams come true
Well, well, well you, you make my dreams come true

What is Your Fragrance?

I love perfume – for years I couldn’t wear it – because I was involved in music ministry – choir and worship team – and so many are allergic to ANY fragrance – those of us that are not – simply had to “give it up” and defer to our allergy prone counterparts.

Now I can wear it to my hearts content ♥  I love the newest Juicy Couture – got it last Christmas from my amazing and thoughtful husband.  Everywhere I go – people young and old comment on how I smell – in a good way ☺

Today I was reading my good friend, Ron Almberg’s blog – and he was talking about a “kiss” – different types and what it means.  Here is his great article:

It really got me thinking.  First – what is a kiss?  Then what impression does it give?  What does it symbolize from deep down inside us?  What is the fragrance we are giving off?

I would love to think that everything that I do – is an outward expression of what is going on inside of me – my fragrance.  But sadly – I fall short.  Sometimes my scent is not so sweet – bound up by unforgiveness and pride – the impression in which I give off – may be somewhat dark and mystical – there also may sometimes be a spicy defiance – and a melancholy sadness that is overpowering at times.

I want my fragrance to be sweet – compelling – inspiring and encouraging.  I want for others to see Jesus in me and smell His fragrance on my life.  I want to point others to the truth – just simply by the way I live.  But like you – I often fall short – and others do not comprehend Him – when there is too much of a “me” fragrance in the way.

When you give a kiss – does it display what’s going on inside of you?  Is your self expression one of beauty, grace and a sweet aroma?  Do you represent the Saviour in everything you say and do?

If you are like me – you long to do this.  To just get yourself out of the way.  To point the way – so that others may know….

Ron – this song is for you – it is my husband’s idea – as he thought it should have been posted on your great article today – but – since you did not – here you go ☺  Enjoy and God Bless!
