You will Hear my Smile in my Words. Cynthia Saarie
I have a story for you.
Myra King Redding, my voice teacher, was 89 when she took me on as her student. A four-foot nine-inch spitfire of a woman. She sat in the church pew ahead of me and one day turned around and said, I'm going to teach you how to sing. Uh... okay??? I was a struggling single mother. She met me every Tuesday afternoon at that church for four years for free and taught me. Myra sat two hymnals on the piano bench, to make her a little taller. At that time in 1983, I was 25 when she started. She married again and outlived her third husband when she was 92. She drove me all over to every nursing home she could find for me to give a concert. She was a professor of piano at Crane Conservatory of Music, SUNY Potsdam, NY. She was amazing. Her motto was, "If I live to be 120, that means I hit middle age at age 60." She passed just before her 97th birthday. She told everyone she met, "those that aren't busy living, are busy dying. BE BUSY. Always be busy."
Ps...I'll be middle-aged in March 2018.
For this reason I, Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles— 2 assuming that you have heard of the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly. 4 When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. 6 This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
What does the phrase:
the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for you,
mean to you? What is Paul talking about? I am thinking that God is revealing to Paul that Paul is to teach the Jewish nation that they are to include the Gentiles in the body of Christ. That what was once a promise of God only for the Jewish nation is now opened up to the world of other faiths, one huge umbrella to include everyone in the family of God. What a great promise this is. We are all now heirs of the promise of God. (Which is in my book.)

Singing is My Prayer where Words become Alive in the Realms of Heaven.
Writing Words are my Prayers before the Melody has been Added.
Am I a dreamer
when I think things in our world can become better? Do I think things can change?
Yes, I do dream of a world where people get along. Where there is no separation of those who have and those who don't. Where laws and policies don't benefit a few and not all, and where peace reigns.
Is it wrong to dream of a better world? Is it possible to try to enact changes where it makes a better place for everyone to live, not just a few?
Prayers can make these changes.
On my birthday, March 23rd, a Friday, at some point in your day, all around the world...
You pray a prayer of forgiveness. Asking for forgiveness makes a contrite heart capable of listening and being reasoned with.
You pray a prayer of hope.Asking for hope changes a person's perspective on the misery that many suffer daily, hoping things will become better.
You pray a prayer for change. Asking for change makes a person's heart willing to try something different, a new beginning, a new start.
Something like this prayer: Lord God, the God of us all, no matter what we said we believed before, we come before You, asking You to forgive our hardened hearts, open our minds to see what we can change and give us a new song in our life to make those changes. Let us find You in each person we meet, and in honoring that new person, let us also become new people. Help us find a new common ground of hope for our future before it's too late.
In Your name, Jesus, we pray, AMEN.

One of the finest music festivals held in NY State each year is the Community Band Festival at Lake George. It’s always held the third weekend of July. Music fills the air in the pristine foothills of the Adirondack Mountains overlooking the clear waters of Lake George.
This year will mark the 14th annual weekend in Shepard Beach Park Amphitheater. At 5 pm on Friday, July 20th, music will reign over the park which overlooks Lake George. This is the largest Community Band Festival in the Eastern US. Concert bands from all over the Northeast and Canada join in celebrating some of the world’s finest music pieces. Broadway show tunes, Patriotic melodies, and music to make you just get up and dance. It pours throughout the hamlet of Lake George on that Friday evening and all day Saturday.
Bring a lounge chair or blanket and park yourself overlooking Lake George while your mind wanders through the wonderful music that has brought people here for fourteen summers. Many of the hotels are within walking distance of the park, and many are just outside of the town on Canada Street. Book early, rooms fill fast for this wonder-filled musical weekend.
One place that I go to year after year is the Lake Motel, right on Canada Street, two blocks from Shepard Beach Park. Rooms run about $260 a night for the Community Band Festival. They have a site right on Lake George. There'sa heated pool and canoes to use on the Lake.
