Read: Exodus 3:1-12
There was a magnificent sunrise this morning, but I was too busy to enjoy it. I turned away and became preoccupied with other things. I thought about that sunrise a few moments ago, and I realize I lost an opportunity for worship this morning.
In the midst of the busyness and stresses of our days, there are patches of beauty all around us, glimpses of Gods goodness that we catch here and there along the way. These are the places in the walls of the universe where heaven is breaking throughif only we will take the time to stop and to reflect upon Gods love for us.
What if Moses had taken only a fleeting glance at the bush that was burning but was not consumed? (Ex. 3:2). What if he had ignored it and hurried on to other things? (He had those sheep to take care of, you know, and important work to do.) He would have missed an epic, life-changing encounter with the living God (vv.4-12).
Sometimes in life we must hurry. But overall, life should be less hurrying and more noticing. Life is the present. Life is being aware; it is seeing Gods love breaking through. It is turning aside to the miracle of something like a sunrise. Something transitory, yet symbolic of the eternity that awaits us.

Woo-Hoo Connie, thanks and Let’s Party ! :-)
Good evening, Connie, and thank you for the tributes to our troops. *HUGS*
Hope your Friday was better than mine. It wouldn’t take much. LOL!!
Did you have a good, safe commute?
Hope you have some “me” time this weekend. My Saturday is devoted to a long list of things I’m supposed to do to my Mom’s Mac, and then conference call the Mac lady, who can no longer drive because of eye problems, on Sunday.
Some good stuff coming up this evening.

Good evening, Cindy, and thank you for the Friday Night videos. ((HUGS))
Thanks, unique, for the perfect woohoo.
Ahhhh...Looking forward to it!
Where were you? I was a junior at a third-rate Catholic prep school in New Jersey that had pretensions to being first-rate. But it was the year I earned my first dollar, although not in the way anyone would have approved.
The assignment was to write analyses of political cartoons. Id just finished my virgin political effort with the Goldwater campaign, and my political defloration on Election Day 1964 was as painful as anything I had yet experienced ROTC boot camp was yet five years in the future. I knew the major cartoonists, their political agendas, and I could interpret anything to the depth required. I could even go into detail on the work of the brilliant but obnoxiously liberal Herbert Block of the Washington Post. Most of my classmates couldnt, and they turned to me for help. I charged them. I charged even more when they asked me to write up the interpretation for them. I probably would have been expelled had I been caught, but I knew how to disguise my writing style, and my work earned me a couple hundred dollars. This is called putting conservative principles to work in a liberal manner.
So what were you up to?
Cue the Rockumentary theme!
This band was Motowns Funk Brothers backed with pickup musicians from the Detroit Symphony.
Roger was the caffeine addicted genius of Country music, and he was one of the great entertainers of the genre. Ask anybody about Rogers output, and this is the first song everyone names.

Back in Texas and it was 81 warm degrees. Cooler weather coming Sunday! :)
Peter Asher has had a long career producing Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Neil Diamond and others. But he started as a duet with Gordon Waller singing tunes that Lennon and McCartney had given away.
This is a Del Shannon tune. The boys were in Australia on a tour with Del, when one night backstage Del sang this number. The commercial possibilities occurred to the guys, and they sat down and recorded it immediately. It became one of their greatest hits.

Good evening, spel, and thank you for the Friday Night Edition of the Salsa Addiction Emergency Room! ((HUGS))
I remember Peter & Gordon doing “World Without love”!
Judging from the arrangement and the sound, this was probably recorded in 1963, but it was not released until many years later. Had it been released right after it was recorded, it probably would have been a hit.
