I Gaze Out the Window

I gaze out the window, remembering days by

The fields beckoned me run through faster, fly higher,

Thr Michigan sun kissed my yellow hair, giving it warmth.

The dog beside me asking to run ahead, in flight for a rabbit,

The rabbit escapes and I sigh relieved, preferring to see her again.

The field ends and the railroad tracks beg us to follow

And staying on the wood running begins my quest for faithful tempo.

The steadiness of my breath creates my beat,

The pant of my dog and birds singing my accompanyists,

The rush and tricking of the brook is my background choir

And God would give me the melody and words.

And I will never recapture that musical creative moment that way.

But now my music comes from different place

Different background choir, different beat source,

But the Giver of the melody and words is the same

And I still sing. I will always sing. My choice, my passion.❤


Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Don’t Worry, Be Happy Lyrics by Bobby Ferrin

“Here’s a little song I wrote 

You might want to sing it note for note 
Don’t worry be happy 
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double 
Don’t worry, be happy
(Don’t worry, be happy now)

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no place to lay your head 
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy 
The land lord say your rent is late 
He may have to litigate 
Don’t worry, be happy 
(Look at me I am happy)

Don’t worry, be happy 
Here I give you my phone number 
When you worry call me
I make you happy 

Don’t worry, be happy 

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style 
Ain’t got no girl to make you smile 
But don’t worry be happy
Cause when you worry 
Your face will frown 
And that will bring everybody down 
So don’t worry, be happy 
(don’t worry, be happy now)

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

[*4th verse not in radio edit]
Now there is this song I wrote 
I hope you learn it note for note 
Like good little children 
Don’t worry, be happy 
Listen to what I say 
In your life expect some trouble 
When you worry 
You make it double 
But don’t worry
Be happy, be happy now

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

[Radio edit continues here]
Don’t worry 
Don’t worry don’t do it, be happy 
Put a smile on your face 
Don’t bring everybody down like this 

Don’t worry
It will soon pass whatever it is 
Don’t worry, be happy.”❤

I loved Rich Mullins. He had a raw passion for God and people that poured out of him like and comfortable pair of jeans. He was always honest, pure, his writing incredible and gifted and I miss him. I met him several times, knew him and nd was known by him as a familiar face, a fan maybe, then a friend. And his raw artistry and passion for God and people was addictive. What a great man. God rest his soul, and I am sure he is singing for God now. ❤
