Keeping On...

From time to time, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've mentioned how I have music resonating within me.

For a minimum of two (2) weeks, I've awoken every morning with a song playing in my body and brain. 

The song was written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher, and is entitled, The Rainbow Connection.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIVJ8fZPoE8.  The lyrics are below.

Rainbow Connection

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it's probably magic....

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa


From "The Muppet Movie" (1979). Originally performed by Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson), Jim Henson Productions.

Why this song is playing within me, whenever I wake up, I have no idea.

Rainbows don't really hide anything.  At least in my opinion.

The lyrics speak about magic.  This is something I want no connection with.  Ever.  After all, magic is of the occult, which God tells us we should not have any contact with.

With regards to wishing upon a star, this is something I don't do.  Why would I want to do this, when God is there for me.  That's why I pray, and trust Him, instead.

Have I been half asleep?  Of course!  In fact, there are nights when I never drift off into a totally restful sleep.

Some nights, I am awake most of the time.  Much like last Saturday night.  I didn't get to sleep until about 5:30 a.m.  Even so, I got up in time to get myself ready to go worship!

Voices?  In my head?  Absolutely, not.  Well, except for those who are singing songs that resonate within me.

To be honest, the only time I've ever heard a voice in my head, was one time, when I almost walked into where I was living, while it was being robbed. 

A voice in my head, said in a slow and deep voice manner... "do... NOT... go... in... there!"  Reflecting upon this over the years, I have only ever come to the conclusion that it was God speaking to me.  Especially, since I was not injured.

Ah well, that's another story... for another time.

Of course, the end of each verse says the same thing... 'Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me.'

The only thing I can think of with regards to this part of the lyrics, is the fact that someday God and I will be together, in Heaven.  Along with lovers and dreamers.

Other than that, it's hard for me to imagine why this song is within my brain, body and heart, every morning.  But then, God does not reveal everything to us, while we're here on earth.

Just as we read, in 1 Corinthians 13:12, "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."

Yes, now... I see through a glass, darkly.  And, I'm sure you do, also. 

The fact is, none of us know exactly what God is working out for us, in our lives.  We only know a little bit, or a part of what God is giving us.

Once we're in Heaven, then we will see better.  Then, being face to face with others, and with God, I'll know, even as I am known.  So, truth will come to light.

Sigh...

The only thing I can do is trust God, to reveal His truth to me.  In His time.

So, I'll just keep on... keeping on.  And, thank Him, for everything He does for me.


Until next time...
