sharing words

L.K. Ludwig sent out a call for a day of sharing words.

The words I have chosen to share are from a gospel song that my oldest sister shared with me a long time ago when I was pretty young. The words resonated with me so much that I wrote them down on a scrap of paper and kept it in my wallet for years.
I would pull that little scrap out whenever I needed that invisible lift.

“I don’t feel no ways tired,
I’ve come too far from where I started from.
Nobody told me that the road would be easy,
I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me.

~Rev. James Cleveland

You can listen to him sing these words here.


  1. Terrific sentiment, huh? And thank you for introducing me to Ludwig’s site – I have linked her up!

    The idea of sharing words is an amazing thing. It’s why we’re all here in this little/big place called the blogosphere, isn’t it? Our words paint pictures, and it’s all a circle.

    Love the photo AND love the previous post about floating your work. Thank you for your generosity in sharing ideas. Your confidence shines through, you know.

  2. Thank you for sharing words. Thanks for the article on floating panels. I think I’ll try that. I have loved your work since I first saw it on etsy.
    I was recently tagged and now I’m tagging you because I love your work.
    Visit my blog to get all the details.

  3. Deeply moving. Bitersweet and sweetly bitter given the context of those words. How we all need those invisible lifts!
    Now I’m pondering over what words would I reach for? I’ll have to give it some thought…

  4. great to stop by for another visit and this is a lovely idea…and such a wonderful lyric/song.
    hadn’t heard of Rev. Cleveland before but since that’s my hometown I won’t forget him.

    Synchronicity…I had just posted image and song…maybe there will be time to throw my hat in the ring on L.K. Ludwig’s project.
