Music High Five For The Weekend

Have a great weekend everyone. The Gospel on Sunday is about the Rich Man and my choice is a response in a Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby biddy biddy bum sort of way.

If I Were  a Rich Man from Fiddler on The Roof

 It's a Lovely Day Tomorrow.

The Best Things in Life  Are Free

Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries 

Brother Can You Spare a Dime : Tom Waits

Why Worry:  Dire Straits

The Peace of Wild Things
by Wendell Berry

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the middle of the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Excellent selection as always, Phil!

I suppose you know Gwen Stefani's take on "Rich Man" ("Rich Girl")--love how she runs through all the chi-chi of rich dreams and concludes: "Shouldn't matter." and "Oh, the riches won't mean anything!"

Thanks for a lovely weekend kick-off!
