Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good morning, Kittens & Dawgs! I hope all of my Florida friends are doing ok in the wake of Irma coming to shore yesterday morning. The system originally was expected to cross east Tennessee but it shifted to the western part of the state about mid-week. The only threat we have to deal with today is lots of rain. I’m not complaining.  Anywho, today’s mewsic theme is “Remembering 9/11” and I invite you to hit the dance floor with XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette , and little ole me!

 

Where Were you When the World Stopped?

 

This is a weekly hop for mewsic enthusiasts regardless if you follow our weekly theme or not if you have mewsic to share then we’re ready to dance with you.  Otherwise, I ask that you do not link non-mewsic posts below to boost traffic to your site. You’re welcome to leave your URL in comments with a brief description inviting me to check it out. Thank you!


 

The official anthem for first responders in the days after the madness was the song track, “Tuesday” from Superman 2000. To honor those who stormed head long into burning buildings without a second thought giving your life, you won’t be forgotten and for the many who worked relentlessly to find survivors in the aftermath. I may not know your names but that doesn’t change my gratitude. “Five For Fighting” is for you!

 

 

I’m gonna wind things down with a song that was written many years before 9/11 but the sentiments resonates the mood I felt that day with “the sound of silence” in the days that followed the attacks. Perhaps, you did, too.

 

 

What 9/11 mewsic stirs your heart today?

 

Reflecting on 9/11 always stirs my heart. None of we will be the same after that day 16-years ago and I don’t think we will never forget the horrors. Honestly, I hope we never do because if we do then this sort of thing will happen again.  Thankfully, we showed the wicked that we can Rise Up To Never Stay Down! Please take time to say a prayer for our nation, our world, and its people. Ask for God’s protection against further terrorist attacks here and abroad.

I’ll see you tomorrow with Cathy Chats – Take That. May God bless America!

Thank you #ChickfilA for honoring Nancy Reagan

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Last Thursday as we ran errands and enjoyed the beautiful spring-like weather, we noticed the flag at half-staff at various businesses.

Flag Half Staff in honor of Nancy Reagan (3-10-2016) by DH1

A special thanks to DH for snapping this photo with his iPhone at my request. I wore a pair of shoes which rubbed blisters on my feet that made walking difficult by this point. He later told me that he wouldn’t do this for just anyone. 🙂

 

I called Chick-fil-A to inquiry why this is; the gentleman who answered the phone said it was in memory Nancy Reagan. I thought this might be the case; I not only wanted to hear it, but I wanted Chick-fil-A know how much I appreciated the company honoring such an elegant and classy First Lady. Thank you, #ChickfilA!

I want to offer a belated tribute to Mrs. Reagan. I will remember you as a woman who deeply loved her husband and stood by his side faithfully throughout the years in good times and bad. I could see by the expression on your face the way you looked at the President that your love was genuine. I know this because it’s exactly the way I look at DH. May you find peace with the Lord and with your beloved Ronnie.

Using DH’s original photo above in Pixelmator I added photo layer of an image I found of Nancy Reagan on the internet to create this special tribute to the First Lady.

To the Reagan children, your parents will forever be special in our hearts. They served the American people with clear conviction and resolve in doing what they thought was right.  On behalf of my husband, you are in our thoughts. I hope our prayers carry and lift you during this sad time and for God’s blessings to be with you!

Goodbye, David Bowie

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It was a week ago today, I woke to read the following text message from NBC News “Rock visionary David Bowie dies at 69.” I didn’t realize until now that the artist battled with cancer for the past 18 months.

Death never discriminates. It robs every person at some point of dear loved ones whether one is ready for it or not. My prayers and condolences to the Bowie family.

Experimental rock, glam rock, or whatever Bowie’s genre was, wasn’t my preferred style of music. A few years back I stumbled across a duet that he did The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth with Bing Crosby.

I remember Bowie’s first US#1 hit when I was 14-years old. I can’t recall if I knew it was him singing it or not until now.

 

#59 David Bowie: 69 facts In September 1996, David Bowie broke new ground, yet again, with the internet-only release of his single Telling Lies. It would have taken more than 11 minutes to download over a dial-up internet connection. A year later, he launched his own internet service provider, Bowienet.

 

There is one more song Mr. Bowie did with another giant in the music industry. Actually, it’s a 1960s cover, but perfect for my Monday’s Music Moves Me participation. Get to your feet. It’s time for… Dancin’ in the Street!

 

Painting Offered a Different Palatte for David Bowie’s Talent. His artistic ability extended beyond the stage. By expressing himself on canvas inspired him musically.

The world may never know another like you, Mr. Bowie. I bid you ado and may you rest in peace. Thank you for the music!

What’s your favorite David Bowie song?

Here’s to the Heroes #VeteransDay

Good-morning, kittens and dawgs. I want to send out my personal thanks to all who serve(d) in the armed forces insuring my family and this country’s freedom. This song is for you, Here’s to the Heroes!

 

You’ll always be A Hero In My Eyes!

 

This song was written and performed by James Dupre after attending his brother’s basic training graduation.

I give thanks to the heroes blessed to return Home Free.

 

Mason Douglas wrote this song in tribute to his very patriotic and proud dad who served in the Air Force for 22 years and flew in the Vietnam war. Three of my uncles fought in the same conflict were also blessed to return home safely.

Unfortunately, the ugly truth of war is that some heroes do not come home the way I want. For those, I say a special prayer for the family.  I know there aren’t enough words to express the gratitude I have for the heroes we honor today. Here’s to the Honor the Fallen.

 

Sally Mudd wrote and recorded this song for those who paid the greatest price by giving their lives for this nation. God bless the fallen heroes!

Thanks for the dance. Let’s keep the party going, link up and join the fun with the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew and if you want to find out which artist won my November 1st BoTB, then click here!

Now, a special prayer….

Veteran’s Day Prayer

By: Joanna Fuchs

Dear Lord,

Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women
who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service
in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly
for the hardships they faced,
for the sacrifices they made
for their many different contributions
to America’s victories
over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.

Please…whenever possible tell a Vet how much you appreciate him/her for his/her service to our country. Freedom isn’t free; it comes with a steep price!

May God bless you and yours!
