Oh Happy Day!


This morning’s sunrise (March 4, 2018) reminded me of the gospel song, “Oh Happy Day!” by Edwin Hawkins (sung by Edwin Hawkins, Lynette Hawkins Stephens and the Edwin Hawkins Singers) which goes this way:

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

Edwin Hawkins is considered to be one of the originators of the urban contemporary gospel sound. “Oh Happy Day” was popularized (at least to me) by the movie, Sister Act II.



Happy Earth Day!

I really needed to get out …


… even if it was snowing heavily.

Sunday Photowalk

sunday

Having cabin fever cooped up in the apartment.

So instead of working, I took a walk on the beach, despite the wind and the cold but the sun was shining though. It was a nice brisk walk from Thorndale to just about Foster Ave. Beach and back with plenty of photo stops. Took me about an hour. Surprisingly, lots of people were up and about, probably they felt the same way as I did.
