  1. Sadly, this old (and slightly broken) computer will no longer give sound, nor play video! And I love this song ... it would have been a wonderful way to begin this day. But now I am singing it in my mind ... happy Easter, Annie ...
    Hugs, A

  11. We can rejoice because He is risen! What a great song for such a blessed remembrance of how truly wonderful that first Easter must have been like for the Apostles when they discovered our Lord had risen as He said. Have a grand week, my friend!

  13. One of my very favorite songs from way back when. I can still remember the first time I heard it on the radio!

  14. First off, McGuffy, your header is beautiful, playful. Love it.

    This song, the simple presentation of it, it what I needed. After Riley's friend, Nina, died, the whole of Lent seemed to resonate with her spirit. And she was Jewish just like Jesus...

    Remember when Cat became Yusef Islam and made the mistake (for which he later apologized profusely) of saying he supported the fatwa on Salman Rushdie? That did not affect my admiration of him as a songwriter. After all, anyone who could write "Peace Train" certainly couldn't have changed that much just because of a conversion. Also, Yusef covered an old song recently, "Oh Lord, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." Speaks volumes.

    Thanks for your support during our time of trial. I'll be around more now! Amy
