Perspective & Phavorites – Don’t Worry

“Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright.”~ Bob Marley

As young as they are, my grandchildren already talk about memories they have of ‘Nanny’s house.’ My middle grandchild said to me recently, “When I was a baby, I came here, and I would sing.” It turns out this singing was Bob Marley’s song, ‘Three Little Birds.’ When my grandson was a toddler, I watched him several days throughout the week, we’d play Reggae and when our favorite, ‘Three Little Birds,’ filled the living room with its lilting notes, I’d pick him up and we’d dance together. He remembers these moments.

I came to love Reggae music later in life. I’d definitely say ‘Three Little Birds’ is one of my favorite songs. I’ve said before in these posts, the wisdom in the song, echoes Jesus’ words in the Bible.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”

                                                                  ~ Matthew 6:25-27

Today I read an article with a little more proof that Reggae music will make you smile. Dogs prefer Reggae.

Another Reggae group that fills me with joy is Christafari Band.

The dreariness of winter can put a blight on your happiness…take a few moments to listen to some upbeat music and smile.

  1. That picture, the birds in the trees; is that a wall covering? I think I’ve seen it in my quest to find something suitable for the bathroom I’m renovating? I love it.

    And Bob Marley. Been listening to him for decades. Wish I had access to the pot that he does. I wouldn’t be worrying either. But let there be no mistake, Rastas are not Christians. Bob Marley wrote some peaceful songs, but they are based on something entirely different than the teachings of Christ. On the other hand, they paired well with my college days and all those hours of flower power. lol.

    You are blessed to have grandchildren. Your posts are so fun.

    1. I do know that Rastafari is not Christian, and that those who practice it like it to be called a philosophy, not a religion. There were/are many errors in their thinking, the biggest was that Halie Selassie was the Messiah, even though he said he was not. If you do some research on the web it will tell you that Bob Marley converted back to the Christian beliefs he was raised in before he died of cancer. http://www.christianpost.com/news/bob-marley-died-a-christian-not-rastafarian-claims-archbishop-68800/

      Take a listen to the Christafari band at the bottom of the post. They took the Reggae genre and celebrate it through Christian lyrics and worship. Their version of the song Oceans, easily found on Youtube, is outstanding. Every time I listen to it I feel uplifted and ready to go on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSVjp9AFVWI

      The bird picture, I took it yesterday from my upstairs window. Funny, because today this post came to me after reading that dogs love Reggae. Please feel free to use the photograph for your bathroom. I’ll be glad to send you through email all the photos of the birds in the trees that I took yesterday. Thanks for the comment.
