Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends and family, both near and far.

It still excites me to share the video of the first public concert where my song Canada, Our Canada was performed on April 28, 2017, by Elder College Singers of Delta, BC which is the singing group I belong to.  It was part of Celebrating Canada’s 150th concert series.  I wrote both the music and the lyrics.

Here is the link to me reciting the lyrics: https://youtu.be/Ob00BpvhyqQ  

LIVE WELL

Live Well

LIVE WELL

Good Friday, a Christian holiday,
celebrates start of the Easter weekend,
crucifixion, death, and rebirth
to show life goes on without end.

The spirit of Jesus lives on in us.
His faith, perseverance, and trust
are great examples to follow.
Living life well is a must.

We are loved, protected, and guided
since before the day of our birth.
Our spirits and souls are eternal
living on after our time here on earth.

It’s up to us to make the most
out of each and every day.
Right here, right now, is all we have.
Let’s try not to waste life away.

Counting our blessings regularly,
being grateful for little things,
performing acts of kindness,
we will feel the true joy that brings.
