For some reason, this song popped into my head today. No, I'm not feeling down or depressed. This is an old song and Peggy Lee did it years and years ago. The Youtube videos of her doing it weren't very good, so I found Bette Midler singing it. I couldn't remember the verses, only the chorus. As I listened to Bette singing, I felt sorry for people who don't have the Gospel in their life. Maybe they are disappointed that "that is all there is" to life. I also felt very thankful for the Gospel in my life. I am thankful that I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and that He died for us so that we could repent and live again after this life. I am thankful that this life is NOT all there is. And I am so very thankful that I will be with my husband and my family in the next life. Listen to Bette's song. How does it make you feel?

You know that first part where she says that if that is all there is, then bring out the alcohol? I do think that's the way people think in this life. They feel like there is nothing else, so it doesn't matter what you do in this life.
I, like you, am really thankful that there is always a way back. And we don't have to be the summation of all of our deeds. The bad deeds can be overcome with the help of the Savior.
I never heard this song before. Thanks for sharing. :)

You know it's interesting because I've been listening to one of my favorite bands lately and they have a song called, "Is This It?" which is also the name of their first album. It's just interesting to me that different generations come to the same conclusions and questions.

I am so thankful that I had a profession that clearly shows anyone that looks at it that this is not ALL THERE IS!

Once someone who doesn't believe in religion said to me, "You are going to feel pretty stupid if you die and there's nothing more to life. You will have wasted your life being good." I thought that was kind of funny, because for one thing, if that's true, I won't feel anything because I will have ceased to be. But I realized even if that was true, I still would want to choose a moral life, because it is true that "wickedness never was happiness". Be good, for goodness sake. :0)
