Rock Ballad Of The Week – Orleans “Dance With Me”

Dance with me, I want to be your partner
Can’t you see the music is just starting
Night is calling, and I am falling
Dance with me

Fantasy could never be so killing
I feel free, I hope that you are willing
Pick the beat up, and kick your feet up
Dance with me

Let it lift you off the ground
Starry eyes, and love is all around us
I can take you where you want to go

Dance with me, I want to be your partner
Can’t you see the music is just starting
Night is calling, and I am falling
Dance with me

Let it lift you off the ground
Starry eyes, and love is all around us
I can take you where you want to go

Dance with me, I want to be your partner
Can’t you see the music is just starting
Night is calling, and I am falling
Dance with me

Orleans is an American pop rock band best known for its hits “Dance with Me” (No. 6 in 1975); “Still the One” (No. 5), from the album Waking and Dreaming (1976); and “Love Takes Time” (No. 11 in 1979). The group’s name evolved from the music it was playing at the time of their formation, which was inspired by Louisiana artists such as Allen Toussaint and the Neville Brothers. Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in January 1972 by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter John Hall, vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist/bassist/songwriter Larry Hoppen and drummer/keyboardist/songwriter Wells Kelly. In October of that year, the group expanded to include Larry’s younger brother, Lance, on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta joined in 1976, completing the quintet. (Hall was later elected to the United States House of Representatives.)

Although the bigger picture might not be as clear, but when all the pieces come together, it will turn out more beautiful than imagined.

Point A to point B

Sometimes it sounds so easy

With each step comes a puzzle piece

Designed to fit perfectly nice and neat

And when the puzzle is complete

We’ll look back at out great feat

My heart pounds

At the thought

Of spending

The rest of

This lifetime

With you

It will be wonderful to see your smile everyday

And to express to you how much you make my day

To love you in totality for rest of your days

And experience the fullness of your love in all my days

Without any doubt, you are amazing

#MondayThoughts: Personal Imprint

You were created in Love for impact to leave your
imprint on the world!

If you think you are different, good, you should be. If you think that you don’t fit in, good, you shouldn’t. You were born with a unique imprint that only you can leave each day. Is it your smile? Is it your out going personality? Is it your reserve and calm nature?

We don’t realize what impact we have on every day life. Our actions and interactions can leave a lasting impression or shift the course of someone’s day as well as our own.  You have the ability to make someone’s day without your even knowing and you can do that by just being you. It is your personal imprint.

When you are awakened each morning

Embrace the day ahead

Your uniqueness is a blessing

A blessing meant to be shared

❤️

Embraced

Like the sky embracing the stars

Embraced

The whole of you with the whole of my heart

Embraced

Whether within distance or how far

Totally embraced

#MondayThoughts: Visionary

Vi•sion•ar•y


/ˈviZHəˌnerē/

adjective
1.
(especially of a person) thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom.

Our dreams and goals require a lot of gusto, that vigorous energy to constantly propell us forward. Also, we need to see beyond the physical realm and believe in spite of what we see or perceive. Our disappointments shouldn’t break us but rather increase our believing in the possibility of our dreams and goals coming to fruition.

We must develop visionary thinking. You can believe something so strongly in a negative or positive way, that it has an effect on how you go about living life and pursuing your dreams. We should let nothing deterr us but be a stepping stone to greater things. It can be easy to throw our hands in the air and convince ourselves we cannot make it or do it. It can be just as easy to get a grip on ourselves and say “Hey, I know I can do this. I know I can make it.”

We have to look further than that linear line that we believe will lead us to achievement, because the way is not always straight from point A to success. However, if we maintain our hope, faith and vision, we will undoubtedly achieve what we set out to do and hope for. Picture yourself in the scenario of where you want to be. Believe it to be reality in waiting an accept that you will be there. If you think “there’s no way,” then you are shutting the door.

Let your doubts fall like dominos, then sweep them aside.

VISION – BELIEVE – FAITH – ACTION
