From the CD Higher Ground
I woke up and fell out of the bed, bad thoughts going through my head. I needed an attitude adjustment quick. Broke the coffee pot. There goes the caffeine. No time to figure out the waking dream. I just knew what I was wading in was thick. I didn’t know what to do. Stopped to sing a simple HU, and the message that came through was this: If love can find me, and if love will come. If love will shine on me, I will welcome it; try to welcome it with open arms. I went to work; got stuck in a traffic jam. I did my best to try and rush on in. But my boss, you know he looked at me with a frown. He motioned me to move toward his office door. I walk slow, don’t know what’s in store. He says to me don’t even bother sitting down. I didn’t know what to do. Stopped to sing a simple HU, and the message that came through was this: If love can find me, and if love will come. If love will shine on me, I will welcome it; try to welcome it with open arms. I headed home completely in a daze. Reviewed the morning, it all seemed so crazy. I didn’t know if I should break down, cry or scream. I turned around, thought I heard a car horn. It sounded familiar, just like my alarm. I awoke and I was so glad that this was a dream. Then I knew just what to do. Sat up and sang a simple HU, and the message that came through was this: I knew love had found me. I knew love had come. I knew love had shown me. I had welcomed it. I welcomed it with open arms. Oh yes, love will find me, and love it comes, and love it shines on me. I can welcome it, try to welcome it with open arms.

It’s funny to think that love could ever lose me. Ha ha ha…. As you listen to the words in the music, you’ll notice a shift in awareness as a nice surprise is revealed. With a rockin’ lead guitar and harmonica, this song will have you moving for sure. HU is an ancient name for God.
