A classic, and one of my favorites of all time

Lately the song "Fire and Rain" has been on my mind in a major way.  It's one of those songs that is part of my make up due mostly to the fact that I was raised on it, and have probably heard it as much as any other song out there.  As I've gone through a few of my own personal struggles lately this was one of the first non-MoTab songs that brought me peace.  I've also thought of it as I consider some of the other bishop lessons I've learned lately.

This lyric in particular struck a chord with me:

I’ve been walking my mind to an easy time
My back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it’ll turn your head around


It seems like when we are in a comfort zone, or in some cases not feeling the consequences for some of our poor choices our we tend to 'turn our back toward the sun' or forget our Heavenly Father.  But when we face great trials, or life gets hard, we seek comfort.  Anyways,  I don't have anything deep or inspiring to say (you surprised?) but I thought I'd throw this song up here, while it was on my mind.

  So Enjoy!
