Double Negatives aside, Ziggy was right in coining that phrase in his song, 'Let it Go' Good music, God's music has the power to move you and minister to that inner space behind your soul that drives your heart's rythym. The first strains of Lion King's 'Circle of Life' activates my tear ducts. Makeba's 'Pata Pata is a springboard, Jonathan Butler's, 'River of Life' leaves me bereft of adjectives. Rachel Crow's voice and Spirit sends me knocking on Heaven's door. Mahalia Jackson's, 'Upper Room' moves me. Michael Jackson's 'Heal the World' inspires me, makes me want to call a doctor (well on second thoughts, no). The singing talent on 94.9 KRLTY Dallas makes me prone to pen a praise pome. John Legend's, 'Get lifted Again' makes me feel like a Zen goddess or makes me hear God's call to worship (depending on how you listen). You be the judge. Here are the words.... '
Oh come and go with me
There's so much good to see
Get high with me
Come with me
Oh I want your soul
So go ahead Let it go, Let your body go. Let your ego go. Let God's gift of music move you.

The children did not question their surroundings, they just knew that NOW this is where they are, and so it is. Turkey is also the site of discovery of what scientists believe to be Noah's Ark. Skepticism abounds. Our faith has to match that of Noah's who must have been the greatest skeptic of all, even as he built that 'titanic' of an ark with his bare hands. Its not that difficult to believe really. Its simply blind faith in a God who will do what He says He will......
