Zippity doo dah, Zippity aye,
My oh my what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine coming my way,
Zippity doo dah, Zippity aye.
Mister blue bird's on my shoulder,
it's the truth,
Zippity doo dah,
zippity doo dah,
I love children's songs....I really do! There is so much happiness and fun in the lyrics...also brings back tons of memories of childhood play! Do you know that when my children were little, I tried to see EVERYTHING through their eyes...all of the awe and wonder.
You know what happened? .....It became a habit! Everything became refreshed and new to me. I somewhat, I guess you could say, was able to become a child again! It is such a joy to look at things with "new" eyes! There is so much wonder around us ....but often we allow the burdens of adulthood weigh us down; blinding us of wonder and God's beautiful creation...all the simple pleasures everywhere around us if we can take the blinders off.
Words of pondering that allows the blinders to come off:
Ephesians 4:26;29-32 (New International Version)
26... Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry ...29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Remember this song? I loved this little movie from many years ago! :)
I will be away for a few days but one last verse I want to leave to you....
"Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for ever more."
~ Psalm 16:11
