Get Back to Whom We All Belong, God

            As I have told you in my earlier blog of how I have lately been feeling nostalgic of so many things with an urge to get back to the past, to the people and places and other fond memories including music (https://lordmychef.wordpress.com/2018/10/06/get-back-to-whom-we-all-belong-god/).  Maybe that is the usual route we take in this journey in life when we get back to everything and everyone in our lives so that we could get back inside our hearts to finally get back to God in the end.  It is not being morbid but simply being true.  Anyone who had lived half a century probably realize this too when we suddenly feel missing so many things in life as we have been so focused with our many pursuits in life.  And that is when we begin to slow down, to feel everything in life, rediscovering the beauty of prayer, silence, and stillness.  When we get back to our inner self, we also get back to God and that is when we get back right on track with life again.  Sometimes the key is to stop thinking so much and to start feeling more to understand more (https://lordmychef.wordpress.com/2018/10/05/knowing-too-much-understanding-too-little/).

             Next to God and prayer, music has always been my most faithful companion in life.  It just happens during and after meditations, a song or a tune would suddenly pop inside my mind and would keep playing in there for a few days that I have often incorporated them in my homilies and reflections.  Just like our LordMyChefSundayMusic today which I have chosen to be the title of my Sunday homily.  From the Beatles’ 1969 hit “Get Back” that became the closing track of their 1970 album Let It Be before they split, let’s rock n’ roll!  Amen!!!

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn’t last
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Jojo, go home

Get back, get back
Back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Back to where you once belonged
Get back Jo

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she’s got it coming
But she gets it while she can

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back Loretta, go home

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back, get back
