Read the last Daily Message titled, The 'A' Word
'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]
It's been months since I have written a Daily Message in response to my morning Musical DLG ™ (Musical Download from God ™ ). If you aren't familiar with my Musical DLGs ™ , they are songs that I wake up to every single morning between 4:00 AM and 6:00 AM without fail. I attribute these morning wake up calls to God speaking to me, through me, which also serve as my alarm clock and daily inspiration. I've been hearing these morning musings since I was little girl, possibly as early as 6 or 7 years old, somewhere around there. The music has always been audibly crystal clear even though no one else can hear it.
This morning's Musical DLG ™ was called, "Uprising" by Muse, which is one of the 'go to tunes' that my Scorpion King and I enjoy singing. Neither one of us choose to live fearfully, nor do we get tangled up in conspiracy theories but one thing that we do enjoy is making up movie thrillers that suit our crazy mind. We keep thinking we are going to write a movie script one day, if only we would record our thrilling conversations. Somehow, someway, somewhere along the storyline there is always an 'uprising' with the people carrying torches. That's about the time when we start laughing so hard we're in tears and needing to use the restroom. (winky wink) This past week we set out on a week long road trip with our final destination being Cherokee, North Carolina and no real plans on the route we would take. A half hour after we woke up, we had our camp gear loaded up and set out on our gypsy travelin' road trip.
The first stop on our trip was Kentucky Lake where we swam, hiked and biked and then sat around the campfire sipping cocktails making up a movie that ended in an uprising by the local campers carrying torches. The second stop was Ocoee, TN (just south of Chattanooga) which is a fantabulous place for white water rafting, swimming, hiking, biking and fishing. Then we sat around the campfire sipping cocktails making up another movie that ended in another uprising with the local campers carrying torches. The third stop was the Nantahala Forest (Land of the Noonday Sun) in Western North Carolina and just spitting distance from Cherokee, North Carolina (our destination). After a day of white water rafting and goofing off, we sat around the campfire, sipping cocktails making up another movie that ended with yet another uprising, only this time it was the proprietor of the campground and his mountain man posse carrying the torches. After each storyline one of us will take it upon ourselves to start humming the beginning of "Uprising" by Muse and then we start singing the song defiantly, rebelliously and victoriously as we throw up our hands and yell, "SO COME ON!" at the appropriate moment in the song. I guess you have to be there.
This song for us isn't about anyone against us or us against anyone else. It's not like that. Not only do we enjoy a-musing ourselves with fantastical storylines, we simply enjoy musing about us sticking together no matter what comes our way. We find it a miracle, and it is when you think about it, that out of all the people in the world, he and I found each other and we get to go through it, whatever it is, together. It's not a have to but a get to and we intend on making the most of it, together. Enjoy!~
