LordMyChef Sunday Music, 17 March 2019
For our hot and humid second Sunday of Lent, here is Bobbi Humphrey’s “Good Times” from her 1978 album Freestyle to cool you off and remind you of the many storms you have weathered in life.
Bobbi’s soothing voice, lovely lyrics and jazzy beat match so well with the gospel message this Sunday of the Transfiguration of Jesus that at the very core of His glorious Easter is always the Cross of Good Friday. There can never be a complete and correct picture of Jesus Christ without the Cross. In the same manner, there can be no real change in us, transformation into better persons and “good times” without pain and sufferings with Christ leading the way.
You and I have traveled life’s uncharted courses
We’ve been tossed around at many times on dark and stormy seas
But now the clouds are parting and the sun is shining through
It feels so good to know… you’re here with me,
To share the Good Times, that we waited for so long
I know the Good Times, will prove we weren’t wrong
To hold on to the dreams of how we knew it could be
We worked so hard at easin’ all the pain and misery
Until the Good Times had come ‘round for you and me
And now they’re here, now they’re here
Things may even get worst than better in the world, in our country and in our personal lives marked by sickness and deaths, problems and other woes but the story of the Transfiguration this Sunday assures us of our future glory in Jesus. Let us “stand firm in the Lord” as Paul tells us in his letter to the Philippians by reviewing the many decisions and choices we have made in the past to go back to Christ’s direction to His Cross with more love and faith with one another.
I remember all the hard times when there wasn’t much to eat
And the longest coldest winter, when we didn’t have much heat
But we had all we needed with love enough to spare
Cause more than money we had what I knew would get us here
We fought and won each battle that we had to fight
Made it through the darkness when we couldn’t see the light
And deep inside I guess we always knew that we were right
To try and catch that star….’cause baby here we are.
(Let’s share Good Times…. )
Enjoy your Sunday with good food and drinks, great company of family and friends with some music and a lot of prayers. A blessed week ahead with you!
