Our lives are like a candle in the wind.

~Carl Sandburg 


I have been posting on this blog for over 500 days to learn the value of writing and mass communication.

After some reflection I have decided to cease writing posts for the time being.

Silence and reflection are needed as we approach a new year.

I hope my posts have been of some value to those searching for information on a topic or issue of interest.

Thank you for your comments and interest.

Merry Christmas

God bless.

At the Day of Judgment, we shall not be asked what we have read, but what we have done.

Amazing Grace Lyrics

John Newton (1725-1807)

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now I see.

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.

And Grace, my fears relieved.

How precious did that Grace appear

The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares

I have already come;

‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far

and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.

His word my hope secures.

He will my shield and portion be,

As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,

And mortal life shall cease,

I shall possess within the veil,

A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years

Bright shining as the sun.

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise

Than when we’ve first begun.


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now I see. 


Amazing Grace, Hayley Westenra


Judy Collins & Leonard Cohen – Suzanne

Thank you for your Hayley Music, especially Silent Night. Sweet, peaceful, beautiful — not only the angelic voice, but also the piano.

Here is another great Christmas song for your collection:

Hope you like it. The song is based on a TRUE incident from World War I, and is a tear-jerker.
