Yes, that’s a Marvin Gaye title………In it are the words “Where did all the blue skies go….?” I thought that line described our America today….
He was a prophet. So was I:
On September 11, 2001, Mr. Z and I were blissfully living in Paris, France, my mother had left from her yearly 2 week trip just the day before and we’d walked up to the large grocery store to shop. They deliver so you can get a lot of things and not have to drive there. We were strolling along the Avenue Victor Hugo (between the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower) when we passed a shop called Au Nom De La Rose (here it is):
This is a store that sells nothing but roses. We walked through the beautiful many colored petals they throw out onto the sidewalk every morning and I looked into the beautiful window and said “Honey, imagine a world without roses?”
30 minutes later, I was calling him into our den from his office to see that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center Tower……. A few weeks later, I remembered having said that about worlds without roses and I feel like I’ve lived in that since.
Do you have a song line that captures our society today? It needn’t be negative, it can be a happy one…that’d be a great encourager!
Let us know! Come write in a line from a song, or link the lyrics….tell us why!
