Circle of Life

Sometimes a song says it better than I can. Today, I've been reminded of the "Circle of Life." It ends and begins, a continuous never ending circle that we are all a part of.

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round.

It's amazing how even in life's darkest hour all of a sudden there is a renewal and the sun starts to shine again.

Ah yes...the Lion King...that takes me back. It is a good song, when you listen to the lyrics, but in my mind it will always be paired with cartoon lions...

You now have Christian on a Lion King craze!!!! He wants to watch this over, and over and over again. So, if you see I am on your page ALL THE TIME---you know why. Oh, maybe I will stop "stalking" you and just hit you tube!!!! haha

I won't lie, I always think about the Lion King with this and feel like that movie kind of killed the meaning of the song, but it's still a great one. Hop you're doing okay.
