2/27/12 - The Road Is Long

Actually, the title of today's blog is from one of the greatest songs ever, IMHO.  I'm waxing nostalgic tonight.  Can't help it.  I'm missing those I've lost over time, male and female, and as was pointed out at the RV Show this weekend, I'm a girl.  LOL. And so, in true typical girl-fashion, I share the song that is on my heart tonight.  Rather appropriate for RV travels too, don't you think?  Enjoy.

(B. Scott and B. Russell)

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother...


  1. Different energy from you in this post Debra. Keep on keepin' on and you'll get there.... we all will!

    1. Just a little ;)

      I'm reminded of the true story where a friend's toddler asked his parents an important question once they brought his newborn baby sister home from the hospital. He looked at the baby, and then at his parents and asked, "Does it bounce?"

      LOL. I bounce pretty good and am a-OK.

  2. Debra, I know the feeling. As Someone born disabled I've gone through four waves in my life of burying friends and loved ones. In 2009 I buried my mother and my aunt who lived next door. In 2010 I buried my father. I've had a lot of experience in losing people to the Grim Reaper. I have a few things that I lean on for comfort during these times I get a touch of melancholy. One time during prayer it dawned on me that if Jesus Christ indwells with in me, if the ones I've lost are with him, then in reality they are not far away at all and are very much with us. Remember time and space doesn't exist on the other side. And I believe that the people I've known are praying for me and I know the people you've known are praying for you. And I also will be praying for you. I hope this is of some help. God Bless

    1. God bless you too Trina. And yes, many angels. Many prayers.
