Songs From The Heart III: All Things Bright And Beautiful.

Updated on September 20, 2012
Source

I am loving creating this series ; music lies deep in my heart and what better way to rejuvenate than to sit back and listen to my favourite songs past and present.

I remember many harsh and bleak memories from my childhood but more and more as time goes by the warm and happy memories are seeping through on a daily basis.

Oh yes those warm and wonderful memories.

My beautiful and talented sister Val who so many of you have heard of through my many tributes had a very sweet tender soprano voice and wasn't one of these powerhouse voices!!

This was one song that we both loved so much and we used to sing together in Sunday School at the Tabernacle Chapel in Aberaeron;the seaside town where we grew up in West Wales.

I also hope you enjoy my photos of Aberaeron where we grew up.

Today I visit our home town without feeling the pain of yesteryear;I do not remember just the abuse but I see the beautiful scenery and character which Aberaeron is steeped in.

Today the one so beautiful singer who reminds me so much of Val singing is a very talented and beautiful lady from New Zealand ;oh yes the one and only Hayley Westenra.


Acrostic poetry :All Things Bright And Beautiful.

A heart full of wonder

Learning new lessons daily

Loving my life so.

x

They said I'd never succeed

How wrong were they

I share you all so sincerely

Never say never

Great wonders are created from self-belief

Sit awhile and I wil share with you.

x

Brothers and sisters loving so dearly

Realising that unconditional bond

In each heart lies that tender sweet love

Growing up so many lessons to learn

Heartfelt emotions

Testing those waters of life

x

A wondrous path we now must tread

New days new ways new world

Dearly precious belief and success.

x

Bewitching images fill my soul

Eternally I love thee so

Altering not a moment in time

Until my spirit arises

Tender moments like a nectar so sweet

Inclinations so realistic so sure

Fears and obstacles crumble

United today we stand

Love care and sincerity in our hearts to stay

Freeverse:All things Bright And Beautiful.

The world has a beauty

often hidden in bleak disguise

follow your heart

no vacancies for doubting Thomases!

Believe in thee

beauty care and love.

Follow your heart

learn to invite

with those thoughts oh so true from within.

Look behind the cloud

you will see sunshine

so warming and bright.

Behind those dark clouds is the initial formation

of a beautiful rainbow.

Behind each storm

is a

sweet breeze full of strength and light.

Look behind the gloom at Mother Nature's birds

singing a wondrous

tune which we see

playing with the

breezes of care,hope and love.

Then you will know

then you will feel

then you will believe

that even in those days

the bleakest of times

in those heartbreaking memories

in the sharp cutting wind

you will always find

a world full of love

memories full of laughter.

Fill your heart

and

fill your soul

with

All Things Bright And Beautiful!!!

Haiku:Priceless And Precious.

Sit back in wonder

Filling your heart with emotion

Priceless and precious.

Eddy,Dai,Ellie and Charlie in Manor House Park in South Wales.

Rictameter: Your Love.

Your love

Surrounds us all

Fills each heart with wonder

Wonders to swell up to heaven

These creatures whether great or small you love

Wisdom and strength flows from your heart

Sunshine beams your love shows

And each bird sings

Your love.

I hope you all enjoyed ;take care and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Eddy.

      We met and this wonderful friendship formed ;and this is from someone who said not so long ago but before I started writing online that one could never form a friendship online.

      How wrong was I??

      VERY!!!

      Because we write from our hearts I think by now we know each other very well and you support is priceless.

      Lots of love and hugs to you my sweet friend and have a great wekend.

      Oh ImKarn that is probably the best compliment you could have paid me and I am so humbled.

      I often worry that people will think 'oh there she goes again 'as I publish another tribute or another mentioning days gone by.

      That is the last thought I want people to have ;as I share my story to help others!!

      I do not dwell on this but they are just little thoughts coming to the fore every so often;so now after reading this comment I need worry no longer. Take care my friend and have wonderful day.

      it seems to me that the folks who had the toughest upbringings go one of 2 ways..they either become miserable selfish people who feel sorry for themselves - or they become the deepest appreciators of life - and living!

      It's clear which way you've gone..

      Beautiful..

      Beautiful, beautiful article and hub, Eiddwen. I love this song - "All things Bright and Beautiful". I used to practice this song for a choir I sing with to this very video and Haley's rendition. She has a beautiful and angelic voice. I love this video. You have outdone yourself in this - your own poetry is beautiful, too. The photos are magnificent and I love your granddaughter? is she? Your childhood town is lovely. Thanks for sharing this with us. You brightened my day!
