....So June was riding in her car tonight, and happened to find herself (again) listening to the song, below. A number of members had asked her, over time, why she had discontinued the 'weekend tradition' of "Rock With June." June felt like interest had dropped off, in favor of debate and arguing...BUT!

~As June was driving in her car, listening to the song, below, she couldn't help but wonder to herself why a "nonbeliever" (of all people!) would find biblical undertones and imagery in the lyrics to this song! It struck June that the song's lyrics somehow spoke to the "exaltation" of God, and the risen Christ....Interesting...

So June, (being "just June") felt compelled to re-start this tradition of a thread. Heck, if no one wishes to participate, so be it; June respects that. But for those who "see the millions" at His feet, you are welcomed to post anything here that speaks to...

"Exaltation."

"Listening to you, I see the millions.
Right behind you, I see the glory.
Following you, I climb the mountain...
Gazing at you, following you,
I get excitement at your feet..."




YouTube - ‪The Who See Me Feel Me‬‎



Take gentle listening care.


All are welcome to post songs/music that "speak to them."

This song reminds me of the Creator's love for his creation...

This songs talks about those times when you can't "feel" God's presence, but by faith you know that He's still there and that you're never alone.

Everybody's wonderin' what and where they all came from.
Everybody's worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done.
But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.

June -

How amazing! I am a long time WHO fan. And I'd never listened to this song with God in mind before today. But it fits - it works well. I'm really touched by this. I bought the movie "Tommy" recently. I think this is the weekend that we'll watch it. I've been wondering "where is June" - and viola - here you are! Thanks for sharing this with us!

"Who" knew that 'just June' could know "who" would know that the "Who" knew? ~They obviously did. Try this one on for size:

"Give me a drink and wash my feet...
Gotta get this information through.
I don't know where I'm going, I don't know what I need..."


Jesus called for "action" in order to enable "freedom."

Here ya go:

P.S. Who knew an atheist could know the 'who' behind the Who!?

Love this June...I don't mean just the music...but the OP itself... It reminds me of this: "That that is is that that is not is not it is is it not"
