DATE CHANGE! 7/24 Greg Abate Trio (rain date of Monday July 27th)

Update Music Seen Concert #3: GREG ABATE TRIO has been POSTPONED

Greetings LIVE MUSIC Lovers!
I regret to inform you that our GREG ABATE TRIO show for tomorrow has been POSTPONED, due to rain. We hope to present these fine musicians on our rain date, Monday July 13th. Unfortunately, Mother Nature may be our undoing on that day, as well.
IF IT RAINS MONDAY, TOO…
We will move this show to FRIDAY JULY 24th, with a rain date of Monday July 27th.
If you find that you cannot attend when the date is rescheduled, please get in touch with me. I will happily refund your donation OR, if you’d like, apply this donation to a future show of your choice.
We hope this turn of events doesn’t create too much of an inconvenience for you. We hope you can join us, in the driveway, when the sunshine & the show date come together.
Thanks again for supporting LIVE MUSIC!
In Harmony,
Tish Adams, Executive Producer

18. REFLECTION 2020

I sit and think about our world.
And how so much has changed.
How lives are now so different.
Torn apart and rearranged.
What is this unseen enemy.
That threatens life we know?
That slithered surreptitiously,
And handed us this blow?
It creeps through each community.
Concealed and bathed in stealth.
Instilling fear and panic as.
It plans attacks on health.
How can we fight this enemy?
How can we do our part,
To strengthen hope and faith to help,
Us rally and take heart?
Believe in spirit of the soul,
And work to get along.
Communities of people who,
All pull together strong!
Reach out to help a neighbor, or
Talk to a friend you know.
Spend time and share with family.
The seeds that you will sow.
Trust that we'll soon recover and,
Unite to persevere.
To overcome adversity.
And chase away our fear.
So close your eyes and take a breath,
And say a silent prayer.
For those who work to save our world.
And fill our hearts with cheer.
By Janet Barron

2. If I Color The World
If I could color the world with my crayons, I’d
color it so I could see
The colors of beauty and sunshine and
shine gloriously.
I’d color away all the evil. All pain and all fear I’d
erase.
I’d color in courage and caring, with friendship all
over the place.
If I could color the world with my crayons, I’d
color a world filled with hope.
I’d color out jealousy, anger, and hate, and I’d fill
it with strength to help cope.
I’d color a world without sickness, where tears
were a curious thing.
I’d fill it with laughter and positive thoughts and
encourage all people to sing.
If I could color the world with my crayons, I’d
color and fill it with dreams
And faith to succeed and believe in ourselves, with
a confidence reining supreme.
I’d color a world filled with happiness, a future all
shiny and new,
envisioning promise tomorrow may bring to
inspire all things that we do.
If I could the world with my crayons, I’d
color and world that would care.
I’d color in giving and helping mankind in a place
Where all people would share.
I’d color a world with a rainbow to see and admire above
And smile understanding that life I a gift we are
Given because we are loved.
By Janet Barron

29. THE MAGIC Gift Of You
If you're feeling stressed and lonely
And you don't know where to turn.
If your head is pounding madly
And your chest aches with heartburn.
Try to stop and take a deep breath
Watch the bird light in a tree.
Try to listen to the melody.
He sings so beautifully.
Peel the breeze as it is blowing.
Let it hiss and lift your hair.
With the power it has carried.
Prom a distant land so fair.
Raise your face up to the sunlight;
Warming rays that shine so Bright.
Try to think about life's magic.
That it soon will help ignite.
Just remember what's important.
In the larger scheme of life.
When you're stressed and feeling harried
As frustration adds to strife.
por happiness stems from within,
Accepting as you go.
The challenges you face in life
With all you come to know.
As you learn to compromise and grow.
Through all you come to do.
When your heart can sing believing in.
The magic gift of you!

Now is the time to show our love and gratitude by supporting not only them and their amazing employees, but also a phenomenal Providence establishment that’s been around more than a quarter of a century.

Even if you’re not ready to go out to eat yet, hopefully you will be soon. Or maybe you need a great gift for someone.
