Pharrel Williams “Happy”–the Zoological Version

161 - Copy

It might seem crazy what I’m about to say;
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break.

I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space;

With the air, like I don’t care baby, by the way–

Because I’m happy;
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.

925 - Copy

Because I’m happy;
Flap along if you feel like happiness is the truth.

558 - Copy

Because I’m happy;
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.

Because I’m happy;
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do.

Bring me down;
Can’t nothing
Bring me down.
My level’s too high.
Bring me down;
Can’t nothing
Bring me down.

I said (let me tell you now):
Bring me down;
Can’t nothing
Bring me down.
My level’s too high.

Bring me down;
Can’t nothing
Bring me down.
I said,

God-echo

004 - Copy

If I see Your testimony in water, creature, tree, and flower, how can I not reverence all that is and be thankful for provision,

blessing?

There is a God-echo in all of creation—a divine hello

that testifies of the Great God who calls all into His righteous stream.

Would I kick against pure love

to gather together my own shallow trinkets,

when the emptiness of these idols fall in shards from my fingertips.

With open hands,

I am ready to receive this love that has been there all along,

calling in creation,

whispering in my conscience,

yelling through my pain:  There is something more precious.

The Make-up Challenge

242 - Copy

You’ve seen those news clips where folks, in protest to the overuse of Photoshop and extreme makeup, show before and after pics, marking how beautiful the person is even without all the extras.  Well, when I was at the Santa Barbara Zoo, there was a similar exhibit going on.  This is the California Condor with make-up.

This one below is without.  :-)  Of course, I might just be stretching the truth a bit.
