Music has long been used as a healing remedy – there are accounts of the healing powers of music in the Bible. The Ancient Greek also believed in music as a healer – Apollo was the god of music and healing. Instances are recorded of the beneficial effects of certain types of music on anxiety and depression. It is often used with forms of therapy to induce a sensation of calm.

There is no doubting the powerfully emotive effect of music, which can marshal men to battle, soften rage into affection and romance, calm torment and, conversely, cause intense emotional suffering by means of its exquisite beauty. It has been used since time immemorial to induce all these states of mind; and also to heal disorders of the body, mind and spirit.

Instances are recorded of the beneficial effects of certain types of music on anxiety and depression. It is often used with forms of therapy to induce a sensation of calm: for example, on relaxation tapes; and may be played in meditation. It plays an important part in dance therapy, where the combine effects of music and movement release inner turmoil and conflicts.

Memories –


I was thinking of when I was being honored at a Banquet and when I realized that my son was getting an award as well –  You know I was mushy and teary eyed!! About 5 years ago – I started doing street ministry but to the Homeless population  called The Coleman Cares Winter Project and I went out from October until April giving out clothes, coats, socks, hot beverages and food.

This was done by MY OWN money as well as my son’s little piggy bank ( by his choice – which touched my heart as well ) Nonetheless, my son was also honored since he was in the trenches with me! This photo was taken when my NOW 11 year old son was about 6 years old.

The Lord’s work has its own kind of reward that does not always come / show up in the FORM of currency……God is good.

Just Listen To The Words…………


This song would have been PERFECT to be used in the Christian movie called One Night With The King… and I am sure if this song was made a few years ago that they would have indeed used this song.

Elderly Love –


 

Respecting your elders should be a common sense approach in general in regards to dealing with them – Although with it almost being 2013 the RESPECT factor has slimmed down like never before. So much wisdom runs off of the very sleeves of a great deal of elderly individuals that some generations either take it for granted or just plumb do not care.

Well I have a need for their wisdom as well as them – the very fact that they are STILL alive and in their right minds blesses me. The stories that they sit and tell me and the things that they joyfully instill in me is a major help to me.

Who would not desire to sit and eat up all of the information that a wise women or man had to offer these days? Last time I checked, America was in shambles and A MASSIVE PERCENTAGE of the church LEADERS was / is in trouble so why not may I ask?

I will listen – maybe it is because how I was raised and my own personal desire to be taught! There is such a rich HARVEST amongst wise individuals that you have no choice but to grow if you are open and have good clean / untainted soil within yourself!

Respecting them ALONE is prime legacy for a better ME.
