Looking up in Muir Woods, north of San Francisco. The centuries old giant evergreen sequoias were first named Redwood, "palo colorado", for the color of their soft bark by Father John Crespi, as precisely dated in his expedition journal on Tuesday October 10, 1769. Moral of the story: keep a journal of your own life explorations, you never know what you will come across!
Heaven Now

back to songs index <== ==> next
This song came to me on the winter solstice of 2011, a year before the big change of 2012. For my sassy take on that foreseen event, see my meetup description where I debuted the song to our ascension studies group. "Heaven Now" gave me courage from a place of inspiration that poured out itself for everyone who looks forward to the future, so I'm glad to share it more and wish all the best to you and yours.

"Heaven Now"

by Carl Johann Schroeder, December 22, 2011

For the dream to belong you seek
the longing in your soul.
It would seem itís a song you seek
to know more of your goal.

Way up yonder thereís a light
beaming in your soul!
For this wonder have no fright;
become still more whole.

United you stood and divided you fell,
your heart grew weary and old.
If you would now leave your hell
to part from those grown cold.

The passion burns for more love
than youíve ever known!
The heart that yearns for God above
has greater seeds here sown.

The Angels race to lead you home
and carry you inside
a place where One shall feed you some
more love thatís deep as wide.

Destined you shall know the truth
of where all good is found!
For this you have set since youth
your sight to higher ground.

For the dream to belong you seek
the longing in your soul.
It would seem itís a song you seek
to know more of your goal.
