The Post – Something for the Soul

January 28, 2011

Just one last thing today….a bit of a scattered day and mostly my focus has been on the scientific and nature topics. And of course all those things are “spiritual” in their way.

But here’s a gift for the soul this morning. Enjoy:

The Gift

March 11, 2008

I heard this song on the radio yesterday…hadn’t heard it in a long time. When I did, I remembered how its lyrics always soothed a bad day, how they always lifted my spirits and gave me another boost to start again. I love the sense of feeling small before the ocean, and being reminded not to sell out, lose my sense of wonder, settle for the path of least resistance, give up on love, or sit it out when you can still look life in the eye, and dance.

They don’t play the song on the radio much anymore, but I wish they did. At the very least, I share the lyrics with you. Lee Ann Womack’s – “I Hope You Dance.” May her lyrics give a boost to your day. I may have to go get the CD. Her “delivery” is the other part of this that so restores my soul.

Lee Ann Womack – I Hope You Dance Lyrics

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but they’re worth takin’,
Lovin’ might be a mistake but it’s worth makin’,
Don’t let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)
