my thoughts tonight
The thought has occurred to me that so many times as I’ve gone over the lyrics to Michael’s songs, there were words used that I wasn’t completely clear on their meaning. Since I’ve learned that his writing style is very much like the parables of the Bible, I needed to be totally clear on the meanings of every word.
Today, the word plowshares came to me from lyrics of Heal the World. 8 times out of 10, I’ve found the definitions of words in his lyrics in my Bible dictionary, so I started there, and there it was. Essentially, the word and surrounding lines of lyric are a parable about the restoration of peace.
That’s my Michael!
