Christian Summer Blues Tune

To music that goes up and down

don’t put up with that ugly frown

take it indoors and give it the once over

and you’ll come outside smelling of clover.

 

Interior design is getting me down

Spending all my time as an f****** clown

With a light soy sauce, you’re on your way

Have a happy summer holiday

Have a happy summer holiday

 

Pasta and seafood makes a lovely dish

(Make me a plan in a naughty mish)

My soul is a grape on a lonely vine

When your beat you’re doing time

When your beat you’re doing time

 

Oh

 

My bottle of coke is warm and flaT

IT WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THAT

Cooked in the midday heat, waiting to eat

Ice cream will melt when you feel the heat

Ice cream will melt when you feel the heat

 

It’s all oh so crappy

Put my problems in a nappy

and take them into town

and go and spread the word

that God is around

doing good works

all over this week

and you’re problems

are nothing to him

so get on your knees and pray

for a happy summer holiday

Oh

This song could go on and on…

…for as long as there is summer sun.

 

Yeah

There is a Third Way

I have been searching for a missing piece of the puzzle,

and it’s only very recently that I  found it. Looking back

over my life as it flashed before my eyes, as I lay on my bed, I felt a new confidence

surge with the blood in my veins and the music pulsing in my ears.

A grin surfaced, but it was the grin of a bear with a full stomach and a full

set of teeth, shining in incandescent light as the gift revealed a new side of itself to me.

It has been a week of gifts. I received a warm welcome onto the course I sat on last Tuesday. I received a new Intuos Tablet earlier today. I received the gift of  Third Way magazine on Friday.

As I lay reflecting on my and my nearest neighbours lot at the poorer end of the economic scale I read a piece on a book entitled ‘Blessed Are The Poor’. It was nice to have a new perspective on the matter of economic hardship, culturally and biblically (i.e. What Jesus meant when he said the titular phrase.) It was like a mini-sermon! I came away spiritually informed, educated and entertained!

The magazine is full to the rafters of top-notch writing on subjects I happen to be hungry for. I am only on my first issue (if you don’t count the free tasters on the website) but reckon I am hooked.

I won’t go into more depth than that as I can’t be bothered to! And anyway you now why I am happy tonight.

Have a good Weekend!
