This song by BarlowGirl (a christian band my girls used to listen to years ago) just very recently came to my attention. I’m sure I heard it before but never noticed it. Besides having an incredibly catchy tune it literally jumped out at me for 2 reasons.
Two…it’s allegorical of the resurrection…my blog…and the purpose therein!
Hello sunshine it’s been too long
Since I felt your beautiful warmth upon my face
This “beautiful warmth” is the joy of the Resurrection. We so quickly forget it and when the time comes around the next year, it’s brilliantly warm and joyful! We think to ourselves, “I’ve missed this. It’s been too long.”
And how much have I missed
‘Cause I’ve been focused on everything wrong
This road just felt so long
I forgot to lift my head to see you
This is the part of the St. Paisios story that is the fly. I was a fly far too long in my life. It’s time to lift my head up to see the sunshine.
Oh my lovely shining for me
Let my eyes see all the beauty
It is time to become the bee and “see all the beauty!”
Hello sunshine since the moment
That I felt your beautiful warmth
I knew that I’d do anything
To keep this feeling of you
My heart comes alive
Oh, That Feeling!
Oh who could add a day to their life
By dreading every dark sky
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Phil. 4:8
