Rise Up by Andra Day (Live Acoustic Version)

We help one another RISE UP each time we take the time to listen when one of us is having a tough day. Each time we say, I care about how you're feeling. Each time we pray for one another. Each time we speak words of hope and encouragement. Each time we allow someone's tears to fall, and we cry with them. Each time we support one another through setbacks, challenges, and struggles. Each time we rejoice and celebrate milestones and victories together. Each and every time. 

Sometimes, we rise up in grand ways. 
Other times, we rise up in small ways. 

Either way, it matters. 
You matter.

This song is for you, my friends. 
Be lifted up and know you are deeply loved and cared about.

Hold Onto Hope

My story's not over.
And neither is yours.

Keep holding onto hope, friends.

Sisters and Brothers by The Vespers

I like to share music occasionally here on My Lyme Symphony. I'm a music lover from way back and believe it's good for the soul and the body. There's nothing quite like a good song that can express our hearts, move and inspire us, or lift our spirits. Music is certainly a language we all understand.

I've been listening to Americana singer-songwriter band, The Vespers for a couple years now and have been a big fan from the start. I find their newest song, "Sisters and Brothers," to be particularly meaningful.

So my Lyme sisters and brothers, this is for you. Hope you enjoy this live session.

"Look out for your sisters, don't forget your brothers. 
Gotta take care of each other."
