Oh, Happy Day...

Oh happy day (oh happy day)
Oh happy day (oh happy day)
When Jesus washed (when Jesus washed)
When Jesus washed (when Jesus washed)
Jesus washed (when Jesus washed)
Washed my sins away (oh happy day)
Oh happy day (oh happy day)

...from the movie, "Sister Act"

"And all the windows of my heart, I open to the day." -John Greenleaf Whittier
Sunday blessings!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

May each of our days be happy and may we shine (inside and out) with good health! Just like this lovely flower you captured with such skill!
(I don't know HOW MANY times I watched SISTER ACT and its second part...and every time it was a delight!)

@Japanalia: Thank you so much ... and I couldn't agree more ... shining inside and out with good health! I'm happy that the Sister Act lyrics touched you! ♥

Do you know that the original words that were replaced by Oh happy day (oh happy day)
When Jesus washed (when Jesus washed), were "O happy day, that fixed my choice" Either way round, a happy day!

@CElliottUK: I'm happy you know the original words, but appreciate the ones I posted. ;D

I love spirituals and I certainly remember that spiritual, having FIRST heard it sung, oh so many years ago, by the Edwin Hawkins Singers whose music still sends me soaring. And speaking od soaring, this is a cracker of a shot that sors as well..Beautful image, Judy...have a Happy Day yourself in every sense of the word. :-) dj

@Denny Jump Photo: Oh Happy Day ... I am so happy you were touched by my use of these lyrics. Our souls touched today; nothing could be better. ;D

Don from Spokane, United States

This is a gorgeous image with such strong color and detail. A very attractive image. I recall my "happy day" when at about 16 I became a believer. The song is a wonderful gospel song used by many singing groups.

@Don: Oh, Don ... what a blessing to hear this touched a cord to your heart! Bless you for your testimony!

Carol from Leamington, Canada

I loved the movie 'Sister Act'..... and that is a great song too, it's so upbeat! What they call a 'good movie' today doesn't do it for me, it's a new generation thing I guess. :)) I love the photo, coneflowers are so pretty.... and the insects love them too. Sunday blessings to you too Judy, enjoy your day!

23 Sep 2012 4:11pm

@Carol: Thanks, Carol, and I couldn't agree more about the movies today. I'm happy you enjoyed my photo. ;D
