Happy Thoughts

Yesterday was a rough day, on many levels. So today, it's all about being positive. (Which is difficult given the rainy nature of the day.) So two things that always make me smile that I want to share. First, I recently discovered a song that I love. I'm placing the lyrics below along with a link to the song on imeem if you want to hear it. I think it's appropriate on so many levels to our journey. This song is a very famous song in Korea, and most Koreans know it. I also believe it's often played in Korean churches. Now I just have to find a version I can purchase!

You Were Born to be Loved (Korean version)

Dang-shi-neun, sa-rang bat-gi wi-hae tae-eo-nan sa-ram [You were born to be loved,]

Dang-shi-neun sal-sok-eh-seo, gu sa-rang bat-go it-ji-yo (2x) [And you're receiving that love in your life now.]

Tae-cho bu-teo, shi-jak-dwen ha-na-nim-eh sa-rang eun, [God's love that started from the beginning of time,]

u-ri eh man-na-mul tong-hae, yeol- mae-lul maet-go, [Came to fruition through our meeting.]

Dang-shi-ni ee sae-sang-eh jon-jae-ha-mu-ro een-hae, [Because of your existence in this world,]

Uri-eh-gaen eol-ma-na kun gi-bbu-mi dwe-nun-ji... [you are a great joy to us.]

Chorus: Dang-shi-neun, sa-rang bat-gi wi-hae tae-eo-nan sa-ram [You were born to be loved.]

Ji-gum-do gu sa-rang, bat-go it-ji-yo... (2x) [And you're receiving that love in your life now.]

And, here's the link if you want to listen:

You Were Born to Be Loved, I Minsop

And I always love a picture of a bright, bold flower:
