One day when I was in downtown Chicago, I hailed a taxi. Once inside, I noticed several advertisements for a New Age guru posted on the seat in front of me. The driver claimed that this mystic was the divine one for our day. He believed that God appointed various leaders throughout the ages, and that Jesus had merely been the appointee for His time.
Of course, I had to disagree. As we talked, I mentioned Jesus words: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6). Contrary to the cabbies belief, Jesus was not just one in a series of enlightened religious leadersHe is the only way to know God, and only through Him can we get to heaven.
As the Son of the living God (Matt. 16:16), Jesus didnt simply declare Himself to be the ultimate spiritual authority. He proved it with His death and resurrection. Christ offered one sacrifice for sins forever (Heb. 10:12).
Jesus said of Himself: I am in the Father and the Father in Me (John 14:11). Therefore we dont need to investigate any new path of salvation. Its better to learn all we can about Christ; He is the only One who can provide spiritual certainty.
Read: John 14:1-11

I pledge allegiance to the Flag
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic, for which it stands;
one nation UNDER GOD,
with liberty and justice for all.

During his life, Sergei wrote a lot of art songs, or lieder, as they are known in German, much like Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Wolf. These are settings of poetry, where Sergei was responsible for the melody. In 1893, Sergei published a group of six songs as his Opus 4.
I actually managed to find some videos with translations! These videos offer both Russian and English lyrics when you expand the area beneath the video. This is a voyage of discovery for me, and Im starting to appreciate Sergeis gift for writing for voice.
These are videos of Dmitri Hvorostovsky in his early years, before his voice matured. The Russians are turning out some great singers!
Greetings connie,...((hugs))spent Fri watching over my G-Dau all by myself as G-Ma was shopping in Tucson.

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT
Showing support and boosting the morale of
our military and our allies military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.
The FR Canteen is Free Republic's longest running daily thread
specifically designed to provide entertainment and moral support for the military.
The doors have been open since Oct 7 2001,
the day of the start of the war in Afghanistan.
We are indebted to you for your sacrifices for our Freedom.
Well you lucky G-Pa!
I bet it was a very sweet day for you & her! *Hugs*
After all your wishing for g-babies it’s so wonderful to know you finally have two!
The first movement is based on a poem by Mikhail Lermontov, titled Gondola Song.
O cool evening wave
Lop gently under the oars of the gondola
That song again and again the sound of the guitar!
In the distance, now melancholy, how happy,
Was heard the sound of the old barcarolle:
The gondola glides through the water, and time flies through love;
The waters become smooth again and passion will rise no more.
The second movement is based on a poem by Lord Byron.
It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingales high note is heard;
It is the hour when lovers vows
Seem sweet in every whispered word;
And gentle winds, and waters near,
Make music to the lonely ear.
The third movement is based on a poem by Fyodr Tyutchev.
Human tears, O human tears!
You flow both early and late
You flow unknown, you flow unseen
You flow like torrents of rain
In the depths of an autumn night.
The final movement is based on a poem by Alexei Khomyakov.
The mighty peal rang out over the earth,
And all the air, moaning, shuddered and groaned.
Melodious, silver thunderings
Told the news of the holy triumph.
These are the Kremlins bells tolling on a Russian Easter morning.
Good evening Professor! Did I ever tell you how much I like your tagline? Well I do!
Website coming along nicely? *Hugs*
Concernig the website, I’m on hold until after the election. The time for a higher profile will come later.
Another stellar pic Hopie!
Thank you for our daily pledge....hand over heart & prayers up! *Hugs*
Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...did you have a good day? Relaxing?
I took the afternoon off to take my Dad to the doctor for his regular 3 month checkup. This is the doc that prescribes the Lexapro. For 89 he’s doing pretty well. I have to get him on the treadmill more, and he can’t sleep so much. Now I can tell him, “The doctor said”. Hoping that this will work.
Good evening to you Gram & thank you so much for posting some Salsa for the troops & us all! *Hugs*
Now...out of that playlist which one is the first one I should listen to.....my chair is repaired & ready for demolition!:)
Good evening Kathy & a big resounding TGIF to you! *Hugs*
A grand day indeed connie *hugs*!
G-Son is trying to walk at 1+ and G-Dau is 3 mos old now.

The first sounds a bit like Mendelssohn or Kreisler but with a Russian flavor.
The second is sheer fun and a showpiece for the violin.
Great to see you Drumbo & I do think I perceived it as swaggers! *Hugs*

And you are still “La Loquita”...a small, little bit crazy female. :-)
Lots of lesser known works this week, to include a women’s choral piece that will make you cry. The Seoond Piano Concerto comes next week.
In a roadside inn on Christmas Eve, two travelers meet during a raging snowstorm and warm themselves by the fire. One is an elderly man who is disappointed with his failures in life. The other is a young woman, only half his age, who responds with warmth and compassion. The next morning, she resumes her journey, while the old man watches her sleigh disappear from sight. As he stands there, the snow covers him, and to the girl on the sleigh, he appears not so much as a snow covered statue, but as a giant rock.
The healing powers of Salsa...my headache is better & some energy renewed!
