“Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi”

Oh, Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love,
where there is injury, let me sow pardon,
where there is doubt, let me sow faith,
where there is despair, let me give hope,
where there is darkness, let me give light,
where there is sadness, let me give joy.

O, divine master, grant that I may
not try to be comforted but to comfort,
not try to be understood but to understand,
not try to be loved but to love.

Because it is in giving that we are received,
it is in forgiving that we are forgiven,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

“Fool on the Hill” by the Beatles

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning ’round

“Baby’s Gotten Good at Goodbye” by George Strait (this one came about because I was thinking about last night’s Kenny Chesney interview on 60 Minutes, and how in every clip, Kenny was wearing a hat of some kind … and that reminded me of other “country stars,” including George Strait, who always seem to have on hats).

“Goodbye to Love” by the Carpenters

2/18/07

“BCHS Fight Song” … followed by that song that might be by the Beach Boys in that commercial that I’m thinking is for Disney World. (I know, I know: Could I be an less specific? Well, so what? I just hate it when commercial songs or jingles or whatevers get stuck in my head!)

2/8/07

Today and yesterday, it has been the theme song from (former?) CBS sitcom Still Standing, which I now occasionally watch on Lifetime: “You Make Me Happy” by Will Hoge (according to my Google search).

You can read me, baby, like an open book
Stop me dead in my tracks, with only just one look
Now when the lights go down
And when it comes to you and me, girl
Ooh, you turn me inside out
I’m still in love with you today
Cause you make me happy
