Smaointiú don lá / A thought for the day

A chairde,

Ó tharla an tubaiste i mBostún, seolann muid ár mbeannachtaí agus ár smaointe do na  daoine agus a gcairde/dteaghlaigh a bhí ansin. Tá sé dochreidte go mbeadh fonn ag duine ar bith an méid piain agus bróin sin a chruthú. Tá a fhios agam nach mórán an eachtra seo i gcomhthéacs foréigean an domhain, ach nuair atá aithne agat ar an áit nó ar an ócáid nó ar dhaoine a bhí ansin, bíonn na himeachtaí seo níos fíor duit. Agus muid ag obair linn ar maidin, bhí muid ag éisteacht leis na Dixie Chicks agus tháinig an t-amhrán seo ar siúl… bhí mé ag iarraidh é a roinnt libh.

Beannachtaí agus grá,

Amanda

Dear friends,

In light of the recent disaster in Boston, we send our thoughts and prayers to those who were there and to their friends and family. It is unbelievable that anybody would want to cause such pain and sorrow. I know this particular occurrence isn’t that great in the scheme of the world’s violence problems, but when you know the place, or the occasion, or the people who were there, these horrific events suddenly seem more real. As we’re working this morning, we were listening to the Dixie Chicks and this song came on… I wanted to share it with you all.

Blessings and love,

Amanda

 

 

“I Hope” (Dixie Chicks)

Sunday morning, I heard the preacher say
Thou shall not kill
I don’t wanna hear nothing else about killing
And that it’s God’s will

‘Cause our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They’re gonna be like us
So let’s learn from our history
And do it differently

I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, we’ll have more than we’ll ever need
I hope, we’ll have more happy ever after
I hope, we can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

Oh, Rosie, her man he gets too rough
That’s all she can say, is he’s a good man
He don’t mean no harm
He was just brought up that way

But our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They’re gonna be like us
It’s okay for us to disagree
We can work it out lovingly

I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, you’ll have more than we’ll ever need
I hope, you’ll have more happy ever after
I hope, you can all live more fearlessly
And you can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

There must be a way to change what’s going on
No I don’t have all the answers

I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, we’ll have more than we’ll ever need
I hope, we’ll have more happy ever after
I hope, we can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

I hope, I hope, I hope
