Sunday Respite – ‘Ready for the times to get better’

 

Doc Watson and “Ready for the times to get better.”  My choice for a Sunday Respite. A bit different than my usual mellow picks, but with all that went down this week it seemed appropriate. Wishing you a wonderful Sunday..

Wishing you a great New Year!

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year. Thanks to all who stopped by my very small piece of the ether and took the time to read my scribbles.

Enya adds to the season.

Wednesday Respite – A Winter Morning

 

As we  continue the excitement of Christmas and prepare for the New Year, I thought it might be nice to take a mid-week break with a respite. Sit back and enjoy the break. Once the clip starts, I suggest going to full screen mode. Have a wonderful day.

Sunday Respite – “Waiting in Silence”

 

Wishing everyone a great day. One of my favorite pieces for Advent. I appreciate is pensive tone.

1. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we long for you, Lord.
God ever with us, Emmanuel,
Come, Lord Jesus, Maranatha!

2. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we trust in your love.
O Sun of Justice, true Prince of Peace,
Come with your justice, Lord, Maranatha!

3. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, Lord, we seek your truth.
Wisdom Incarnate, teach us your way;
Show us the path of life, Maranatha!

4. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we long for new life.
O Key of David, open our hearts.
Give us new vision, Lord, Maranatha!

5. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, our hearts thirst for you.
Flower of Jesse, bloom in our midst.
Make us your garden, Lord, Maranatha!

There are several interpretations of “Maranatha.” One being: “Maranatha!” became the common greeting of the oppressed believers, replacing the Jewish greeting shalom (“peace”).

Sunday Respite – ‘Oh Come Oh Come Emanuel’

 

Sugarland does an unusual rendition of this classic. Here is my choice for the Sunday Respite, the First Day of Advent. A time for reflection. Have a wonderful day.
