The Sunday Morning Tune-up, November 6th Edition!

“Tip Jar” by Chip Murray
From Webster’s-

Prov-i-dence (n.) 1. Often cap. The care exercised by nature or God’s will over the universe. 2. Care exercised for the future; foresight.

Prov-i-dence (n.) God; the Deity.

From Wikipedia-

Providence may refer to:

Good Sunday Morning Dear Friends! And a very interesting week it’s been! We lost power during last Saturday’s record snowstorm. Isn’t it amazing, the things we take for granted…until they’re gone! It’s kind of like God! Those of us who grew up in the world of Webster lived in a well-lit home…even before Consolidated Edison and Orange & Rockland. In the Godless world of Wikipedia however, there isn’t enough wattage in all the power stations combined to remove the creeping shadows at our door.

Fortunately for most of us, just as Dylan pointed out, we don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows…and, we don’t need a Wiki-man to hide what the heart already knows! I want to dive into Providence on this beautiful and glorious Sunday morning…the way a two-year-old dives into a birthday cake! I want to breathe this place in through every pore, and dive down deeper and deeper for more and more and more!

Only in this place can you stand on the gallows, with a noose ‘round your neck, a smile on your face and love in your heart for the man in the black hood!

Only in this place can you write the words that nobody reads, and sing your songs for an audience of one…as if they were everyone under the sun!

Only in this light could you stand naked on a cold winter’s night, because a thousand suns burn so brightly within you!

The rest of the world thinks your crazy, but that’s OK! The rest of the world is snug as a bug in a comatose rug with an MSM Mantovani IV Drip! They have been so anesthetized, they wouldn’t know Jesus if he…brought them back to life! Our challenge is to love them! You and I are taking some serious flak while they are eyeing the buffet table with one eye and searching for the next handout from their host with the other! Who wouldn’t think we’re crazy?

Well I’m here to tell you that we don’t eat at this table! If honor is the gift a man gives to himself, then I am doing myself no favors by accepting the hospitality of dishonor! Spread the word, the time is near for you to choose your way. Providence will know…and hold you so. Know your teacher! Know your friend! Above all…Know yourself!

I wanted to dedicate this edition to some special friends who have stepped up to the plate of Providence at risk and discomfort to themselves and their families;

Lisa Douglas- Hudson Valley Patriots!

Lisa Mei Norton- BigDawg Music Mafia!

Michael & Patty Smith- BigDawg Music Mafia!

Toots Sweet- A Singer-Songwriting, Freedom Fightin’ Brother!

Jimmie Young- A Musical Giant-Patriot Friend!

Ron Adcox- Traditional American!

And a very special Sunday Morning Coffee Shout-Out to a very special man, BigDawg Drew and all my friends and family at BigDawg Music Mafia!

Tip Jar is for you guys! It’s about us! It’s about the glue that holds us together! I love you!

I am a blubbering fool right now, Chip....I have had the most frustrating past 15 hours or so trying to figure out my sound issues...trying to record a song....of all things....


Drew told me to take a breather...and read this...and listen...and the tears spilled over....


It is friends like you...lile all our wonderful Brigade members and all the great talent we have here at BigDawg's....that keep me going...


Much love and respect for you my friend...

Big hugs...
