Connecting with the Current

sue mapleSue Maple

For me, gratitude is like a current…sometimes hidden, sometimes visible, but always there.  I try to connect with it every day, which is easier some days than others.  Many things help with this, one of which is music.  The following song is remarkable in its ability to capture gratitude for this beautiful life. I learned of it when a First Parish friend told me about it during a covenant group earlier this year.  This song itself has been a blessing in my life.

May I Suggest

May I suggest
May I suggest to you
May I suggest this is the best part of your life
May I suggest
This time is blessed for you
This time is blessed and shining almost blinding bright
Just turn your head
And you’ll begin to see
The thousand reasons that were just beyond your sight
The reasons why
Why I suggest to you
Why I suggest this is the best part of your life
There is a world
That’s been addressed to you
Addressed to you, intended only for your eyes
A secret world
Like a treasure chest to you
Of private scenes and brilliant dreams that mezmerise
A tender lover’s smile
A tiny baby’s hands
The million stars that fill the turning sky at night
And I suggest
Yes I suggest to you
I suggest this is the best part of your life
There is a hope
That’s been expressed in you
It’s the hope of seven generations, maybe more
And this is the faith
That they invest in you
It’s that you’ll do one better than was done before
Inside you know
Inside you understand
Inside you know what’s yours to finally set right
And I suggest
Yes I suggest to you
Yes I suggest this is the best part of your life
This is a song
Comes from the west to you
Comes from the west, comes from the slowly setting sun
This is a song
With a request of you
To see how very short these endless days will run
And when they’re gone
And when the dark descends
Oh we’d give anything for one more hour of light
And I suggest this is the best part of your life.
