From a distance

Once again you all amaze me, I forgo posting my blog for two days and I get e-mails to say "Wazzup?"
Life and RWC got hold of me by the scruff of the neck the last few days that is why post's have been lying in draft mode this weekend. The "missing" days are up at last and I apologise for letting you all worry. So it seems I am being checked up on from a distance...

FoxyTunes / Bette Midler-From a distance]
From a distance the world looks blue and green, and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream, and the eagle takes to flight.
From a distance, there is harmony, and it echoes through the land.
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace, it's the voice of every man.
From a distance we all have enough, and no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease, no hungry mouths to feed.
From a distance we are instruments marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They're the songs of every man.
God is watching us.
God is watching us.
God is watching us from a distance.
From a distance you look like my friend, even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend what all this fighting is for.
From a distance there is harmony, and it echoes through the land.
And it's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves, it's the heart of every man.
It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves.
This is the song of every man.
And God is watching us, God is watching us, God is watching us from a distance.
Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
God is watching us from a distance.
When I hear that song I always wonder what God is thinking when he sees how things are going on here on earth, how we all seem to be rushing around doing our own thing and not considering how we can change things by being the salt, by prayer and by example. Change begins with each one of us. That is my prayer...
I found this amazing song and video called Everything About You by Sanctus Real over on RT's pondering page, thanks! I am linking to your blog and to GodTube... (updated link to YouTube, the God Tube embed is broken)

Be my light in the darkened room
I'm on my face and I'm calling you
I can't fathom all you've done for me
Every time it finds me on my knees

Like sunlight in the winter cold

Everything about you, it takes my breath
I tried this once without you and it was my
Great mistake...Hallelujah

Questions fade when you invade
You chase all my fears away
With your love in my atmosphere
All confusion disappears

And nothing but your truth remains

Questions fade, you remain
You are color on a page of white, bright
Like eyes beneath black lights
Like a glowing city on the plains, you call
My name


"We may go to the moon, but that's not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us." Charles de Gaulle (1890 - 1970)
