HEAVENLY BLUES

HEAVENLY BLUES

Oh how I love those heavenly blues

Like the sky ~ his eyes so beautiful & true

From the first moment he was placed in my arms

There was a knowing look ~ a winsome charm

And a striving for JUSTICE & MERCY too

….That’s my boy’s heavenly blues

He loved nature & music the most

So many talents I surely can boast

Always reaching higher & searching the stars

His body & heart wore many battle scars

So he cheered himself & others with tunes

~~~Yes my boy’s sweet, uncanny heavenly blues

He loved gathering friends new & old

Lighting a fire where stories were told

Humor & music & games to be played

But he wasn’t one for masks or charades

He’d challenge all to be honest & real ~not fools

~~~So often with a song ~ahh those heavenly blues

His body was agile, swift & strong

He worked & played & wrote many a song

His craftsmanship was unique & clever

He noticed each detail even each feather

He did more in his years than most it’s true

~~~So CELEBRATE with me his heavenly blues

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last few visits were the best in years

He was so tender & grateful as we shared hugs & tears

He played special songs while he held my hand

I’m so grateful GOD had that in the plan

For my last memory with him is in purple hues

~~~Sharing & singing BRITER heavenly blues

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He realized so much is lies from one ENEMY

For our loved ones are not the problem you SEE

Anger guilt & pain covered in shame

Makes us blind & casting blame

He was understanding the TRUE gospel anew

~~~And now he’s singing them in heavenly blues

Have you heard the story of Jesus so dear?

God’s son sent to save us & draw us near

Nearer & nearer to the way we should live

A peace within with JOY & quick to forgive

DO ASK NOW to receive this good good news

Then share with all the heavenly blues

       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There’s nothing in this world that compares

To presence of JESUS a constant best friend, who cares

His SPIRIT wants to comfort, guide & keep

Then we can safely live, trust & sleep

SO ASK JESUS TO MAKE YOUR HEART NEW
& SING GLORIOUSLY WITH ME FOREVER
~~~ETERNAL HEAVENLY BLUES …..

~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you GOD for sending us

Joshua ~ the one who lived in my womb

& Jesus the one on the cross & the tomb

The womb & the cross & the tomb are not places to stay

GOD WANTS US FREE TO LIVE at PEACE COME WHAT MAY

GET READY FOR SOON IS RESURRECTION DAY &
A NEW BIRTH & EARTH TO STAY ~~

There are links at the end to the very special songs

My son played for me during one of our last visits ( we had many hours long visits when I parked my RV home at his home that he had paid off. He said he was working on getting me a place of my own too &/or put a pad in behind his house) GOD had other plans for each of us & now he is FREE from this earth’s pain & struggle & we are left behind to carry on his legacy along with ours. He would say LAUGH MORE & BE HAPPY & that sounds like Jesus kind of living to me. ABUNDANT LIFE.

~ THESE songs meant a lot to us so do click the links below & pretend we are their

taking you to the heavenly BLUES TOO !

And a new one to me that is now my favorite & theme song for this past year since Joshua shared it with me:
When….the Man comes around Johnny Cash (2018 version)

Love from Granma Grace aka friend

Here is a song & show I loved as a child & had not heard for decades …Joshua always knew the right song to put on for me even as a teen when he sensed things were hard. We had a special bond especially when we looked up at the stars at night. I surely do & will always miss him & will love the ones I meet on the street for him …for he like me liked to cheer the neighbors & strangers AS IF THEY WERE JESUS IN DISGUISE . …WON’T YOU JOIN US?

JOSHUA’S LAST SONG WE SHARED & I ASK YOU TO CLOSE YOUR EYES & LISTEN AS IF YOU ARE LOOKING INTO HIS EYES WITH ME …THOSE HEAVENLY BLUES …

SHALOM & GRACE TO YOU !

JOY & PAIN of LOVING

BIRTH IS THE MOST THRILLING OF EARTHLY EXPERIENCES BUT IT IS OFTEN THE MOST

CHALLENGING AS WELL~especially the next 100 years or if the child dies before the mother!   IN other words LIFE IS a BEAUTIFUL MESS & BITTER~SWEET!!!…

 

…A MESTER~ PIECE ….orchestrated by the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE WHO CAN MAKE
ALL THINGS TURN FOR GOOD IN TIME IF WE WILL ONLY TRUST & DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING!photo

THE SMILE on my face is the thrill of a water birth at home after hours of labor & laughter to bring forth our last son! My 12 year old daughter, ( still an amazing photographer!)took

this photo at the moment of my last of 10 births ( 8 are still living on this earth).

Anything worthwhile takes effort & even a certain amount of pain to learn to breath with & through to manage life well. I got very good at practicing breathing with my many births

( the last 5 at home !)

Life IS about taking DEEP BREATHS FOR LIFE!

It is the first & most important principle of good health~

all three aspects of good health: BODY ~ SOUL~ SPIRIT BREATHING!

AND DEEP BELLY LAUGHTER COVERS ALL THREE ASPECTS WHEN DONE PROPERLY!

TODAY my oldest son would have turned 26 ~ but sadly Luke Henry Clifford was sang into

Jesus arms & heavenly peace at the only 1 week old as his father & I wept and began the grieving process that only someone having lost a child can understand.

Doctors misdiagnosed  several times the “problem” pregnancy and ultimately GOD had different plans for our precious & beloved first born son.

ONLY GOD can give the peace that I experienced at those critical moments when the world

seemed to be falling apart .

GOD has carried me & guided me and I THANK GOD DAILY for the gifts I learned during

Luke’s short life AND death and though I miss him dearly, I am SO GRATEFUL for the GIFT OF
LIFE & DEATH because GOD IS NOT ONLY WITH ME BUT IN ME.

ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU THE WAY.

Jesus example of TRUSTING HIS FATHER & FORGIVING & LOVING ALL
IS THE WAY
IS THE TRUTH
IS THE LIFE

 

AND THIS IS THE LIFE
I WANT TO LIVE & DO PRACTICE DAILY TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY WITH GOD’S HELP
WON’T YOU JOIN ME?

FOLLOW JESUS John 17:3

IN FULLY EMBRACING THE JOY & PAIN OF LOVING EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE!
