Happy New Year!
Here is my music playlist for January.
It’s all about circles ’round the sun, a new creation in time, darkness and cold, love and loss, cabin fever, and finding the strength to pray and work for peace.

I sent it. If it’s too big a file let me know.
I will be recording it this summer professionally but I could e-mail a really rough copy to CM.
would love to hear this to music, Chris . . . . thanks for sharing the lyrics
A tune I wrote this year:
Pain, it’s everywhere
Pain, it’s everyone
If you walk, if you don’t
If you talk, if you can’t or you won’t
Pain it’s everywhere, pain it’s everyone, it’s everywhere and everyone
Pain, it’s the poor
Pain, it’s the rich
Pain on the mountaintop
Pain in the ditch
So heal the wound, dry the tear
Take a hand, ease the fear
Hope can be anywhere,
Hope can be anyone
Anywhere and anyone
It might be anywhere
love the haiku!
Happy New Year to you also, Robert.
wherever time goes
every new year and season
it takes me with it
Happy New Year, one and all.
Yes, hope springs eternal. There is so much good in the midst of it all.
Happy 2019, everyone. I hope this year goes better for some of you who found 2018 to be a difficult one.
Thank you for this list. Only 25? Much appreciated.
Since I’m not really a music person, I’ll take one of these a day….hence my ‘only 25’ comment. I’ll fill up January with these.
I wish I listened more to music, this will help kick off the new year with a hope to listen more, a bigger variety, along with hoping to read more, too.
Happy Nee Year to you and to all posters here!??
Excellent choices, as ever! I have named you as one of the best Christian resources on the web. Just started my own blog.
Love the song “Like the Weather” by 10,000 Maniacs!
