I cried when I watched this with my kids on Saturday.
LG made fun of me during Sunday School yesterday
while he explained that just because one has emotion
it doesn't mean that they are feeling The Spirit.
I would like to make an argument that it could have been
and not just my well of tears that we call mother's emotion.
I was feeling love for Michael Jackson.
I was feeling joy in knowing that back in the day,
all those artists gave to the greater good.
I was feeling peace, thinking back on simpler times we called the 80's.
I was feeling longsuffering because let's face it, that diamond studded glove can really make one suffer in pain wondering what's the point.
I was feeling gentleness as I explained for the 20th time how amazing was the phenomenon of We Are The World.
How can one not feel faith at the lyrics:
"As God has shown us, by turning loaf to bread."
Especially when the voice singing is Willie Nelson?
And now I am tired and don't want to think too hard of meekness or temperance.
But, I am sure that I could come up with something.
If I knew that I was going to have to defend my tears
in Sunday School next week.
Consider this a warning for ratting me out LG.
