Bless Us All

Once again it is that time of year! The time when hearts are warmer, smiles are broader & people around us are that much nicer! Ok, so in reality....hearts are colder, frowns are deeper & people are just down right rude. I guess that the old feelings of Christmas have been slipping away over the years & all the wonderfulness of the season is only found in story books. Sure there are a few of us out there that get deemed "the one with the Christmas spirit" but we are a dying breed. I hate that even within families during this time of year, arguments & petty things keep the bitterness going instead of letting go & engulfing ourselves with the love. The following lyrics, although from an odd selection of films, truly stand out above all the rest in my heart. It tells the trueness of the season & I sooooo wish people would take it into themselves & allow the wonderful meaning to rejuvenate the soul & spill out onto the world!

Bless Us All

Life is full of sweet surprises
Every day's a gift
The sun comes up and I can feel it
Lift my spirit
Fills me up with laughter
Fills me up with song
I look into the eyes of love
And know that I belong

Bless us all
Who gather here
The loving family
I hold dear
No place on Earth
Compares with home
And every path will bring me back
From where I roam

Bless us all
That as we live
We always comfort and forgive
We have so much t
hat we can share
With those in need we see around us everywhere

Let us always
LOVE each other
Lead us to the light
Let us hear the
voice of reason
Singing in the night

Let us run from anger

And catch us when we fall
Teach us in our dreams and please
yes, please
Bless us one and all

Bless us all
With playful years
With noisy games
And joyful tears
We reach for you
and we stand tall
And in our prayers and dreams
We ask you bless us all

We reach for you

and we stand tall

And in our prayers and dreams
We ask you...
Bless us all!

So....What Scares You?

"Fear is distinguished from the related emotional state of anxiety which typically occurs without any certain or immediate external threat. Panic occurs when one is intimidated of a certain thing that reminds them of their fear, and experiencing an alarm response. There are many physiological changes in the body associated with fear. An innate response for coping with danger, it works by accelerating the heart rate, dilating the blood vessels, and increasing muscle tension and breathing rate. After the series of physiological changes, only then does the consciousness realize an emotion of fear."

Ghosts....the unseen forces....cause of the hairs on the back of your neck standing straight up....the creaking...eerie noises....from another dark room.....tiny whispers....right behind you....those slightly obscure visions....floating in the distance....or seeing from the corner of your eye....brief movement....yet nothing is ever remaining...proving your own sanity....

Monsters.....hiding under
your bed....in the closet....behind the door....ready to grab you once you start to fall asleep....the scary faces....long sharp claws....teeth always covered in blood from its last victim....no rhyme or reason....to why they are so brutal...but feared is a must....or even that hidden Mr. Hyde in the person standing next you.....

Spiders....crawling around....8 long legs.....spinning barely visible....sticky....webs that we inevitably walk face first into....is it those 8 million tiny eyes watching your every move....or possibly the biting fangs.....poison oozing out of them as they start to pierce your skin.....or the feeling of 100's of them crawling....around your body.....

Clowns....those sweet
dolls during the day.....evil flesh eaters by night....sitting in your bedroom.....always smiling at you....judging eyes....seeing through you....bending bodies under ridiculous clothes....laughter from an other dimension....

Darkness.....the complete loss of light....emptiness wrapped around you....squeezing in on you....no one able to find you....even if you do scream....no warmth....or comfort of any kind....no glimmer of hope....not being able to find your way....fumbling around....lost....alone....

Aliens....other worldly beings....strange to us in every form of the word....are they here to learn from us....or are they here to destroy us.....big heads with bigger eyes....probing fingers....abductions.....feeding upon us....sucking the life right from our veins....

So......What scares you?

Thriller Night

 Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
 Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize your neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found

Without the soul for getting down

Must stand and face the hounds of hell

And rot inside a corpse's shell

The foulest stench is in the air

The funk of forty thousand years

And grisly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller
