Weight Of Eternal Glory by The Hillbilly Thomists, from their album Living For The Other Side.

I am suffering under the weight of eternal glory
I find my place in the Good Lord’s story
I keep His promises by my bed
Take the hand of the Loving Savior
Guides my way while I still stay here
You can find the same way yourself, dear
If you just let yourself be lеd

Last week was a very special week at footy tipping central.
I can’t recall a time when I have had all my tips lose in one of the competition rounds. The AFL had seven games, not nine, but it still felt pretty unique. I count draws as correct. The app on the phone doesn’t, so there’s that.
The NRL came in about average with Penrith and St George letting me down.
Anyway, life goes on.

June 16 is mum’s birthday, the second since her departure.

I think of her whenever I hear I’ll Go Home With Bonnie Jean from Brigadoon.
The song is part of an ensemble performance and dance, so the soundtrack has plenty of space to allow for that as well as the recurring soaring vocal.
Mum did like the song (and the movie); she also had a very, very, very, soft spot for Van Johnson.

So, in memory of Bonnie Jean.

Ellie Holcomb and Jillian Edwards are The Dailys.
Be Kind is another track from their debut EP.

The first breath that we take here
Well, it comes out as a cry
So when the tears roll down we remember we’re alive
So be kind
We can be kind
Take some time
To look a stranger in the eye
And be kind
Mmmhmmm
And in some way we’re all soldiers
We are brave and we are scared
Everyone you know is fighting for their life somewhere
