Better times are coming… when Jesus returns, this time to rescue us from the coming wrath of God (Luke 21:36; Revelation 3:10-11; Revelation 1:3). But oh how I remember those romantic dreamy days back in the 60s and 7os when I was young. (Yes, I really was!)
Those romantic dreamy days back in the 60s and 7os
Those “warm summer afternoons on the grass” feelings. Good feelings. They were deep down in my soul. It seemed like thebetter days had come. Better feelings. Carefree days. I never gave a thought to loosing them.
We just knew we would always “walk in the rays of a beautiful sun”. Hope was in the air. “Things are gonna get easier” hope. It really was like as if “love was in the air”. (Quotes from: O-o-h Child)
And all the whole world had to stand still, then turn around us
‘Cause that was the deal
And oh how those nights went flowing like wine,
When I was all yours and you were all mine
Under summer skies when dreams where too young to die
Those days were “Peaceful Easy Feeling” days.
I was inspired and it all lifted me higher (Lyrics) than I thought I could go (Listen: Your Love Keeps Lifting Me – higher and higher” by Jackie Wilson). Easy peaceful songs were the tone of the days, back then, and my life was invincible:
When you were all mine. And we were in love… “Under summer skies when dreams where too young to die”
I can stand up and face the world
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
You raise me up to more than I can be.
The world was a mess, and the war was a mess – back then. Friends served and some died.
But, the mood of the nation was nothing like today’s overbearing sense of pending doom from the Wuhan Virus (New York Post: Letter confirms Wuhan lab’s COVID-19 leak was funded by US taxpayers), looming threat of China, a looser’s economy, draconian mandates, and a runaway leftest Biden government. Today we are truly living through our tunnel of sorrows.
“I run to win! Christ did. Do you?” Are you finding perfect peace?
I am living “my eternal life” right now, in the sense that this world is not my home, “I’m just a passin’ through” (Song by Jim Reeves… “This World is Not My Home” 1962 with Lyrics). My treasures are safe in Heaven. How ’bout you?

1 Peter 5:7
“…casting all your cares
[all your anxieties,
all your worries, and
all your concerns,
once and for all]
for He cares about you
[with deepest affection,
and watches over you very carefully].

- “You Raise Me Up”. Martin Hurkens sings it. “He always had a dream of being an opera singer. Instead, he became a baker. The Dutch baker’s daughters wanted to help him realize his lifelong dream and entered him in the reality TV talent show “Holland Has Talent” back in 2010. The 58-year-old “paparotti” won legions of fans and the competition!”
