4 am singing. "Just The Way You Look Tonight" Caraoke Karaoke

 4 am driving home from work I decided to sing a song.

It's not a well lit video. There's not a lot of light at 4am. But the city does provide moments where you can see me. Anyway here I am belting out "Just The Way You Look Tonight." Thanks for putting up with me. 🙂

Beyond The Veil - (by Tom Balistreri)

Beyond the veil,
behind the screen,
lies life and wonders,
not yet seen.

There is love,
and great rewards,
in the world to come,
from the Lord.

It Moves Slowly - (By Tom Balistreri)

Life's trials seem to move slowly.
One grows weary as they pass.
But our lives are but moment,
and not long do they last.

The tests that one goes through,
we endure and not succumb.
But they are not worthy,
compared to the glory that's to come.

Why Did No One Tell Me?

 At my age, when I stand in front of a mirror primping or combing my hair, I'm not trying to make myself look attractive or handsome,

I'm just trying to make myself not look disgusting.

This morning I accidentally wore my reading glasses into the bathroom instead of my regular glasses.

To my surprise I saw two hairs growing out of my earlobe that were at least 2 inches long. They were even curling!

Why didn't anybody tell me! Do people enjoy seeing me look like a human insect with antenna coming out of the sides of my head.

And why does hair grow there anyway?

There's plenty of room and empty space on the top of my head where hair could grow. I wish it would feel free to do that.

Anyway if anyone ever sees anything like that happening on me please feel free to tell me about it.

I'd rather be slightly embarrassed and fix the problem than walk around looking like some unkempt freak.

From now on when I appear on video as a public service there will be no close-ups.



You Know Best - (By Thomas Balistreri)

I know You hear my every word.
You know deeds to come,
and what has occurred.

Even when my prayers seem deferred,
You give the best,
not what I preferred.

What Profit A Man? - (by Tom Balistreri)

To gain the world,
but to lose one’s soul,
has no profit,
down in Sheol.
To possess earthly kingdoms,
moments in history,
then a life of regret,
for eternity.
