Today, I am thankful for music.
Our quote of thanks is from Shakespeare. He said, "Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart."
Our Bible verse of thanks is Romans 1:8. It reads, "First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world."

This week will be a special episode dedicated to the greatest playwriter, William Shakespeare and his mysterious life.
The Playwright Romantic: William Shakespeare
Known as the greatest poet and playwrighter that ever lived,
William Shakespeare lived in United Kingdom full of wit.
Born on April 23, 1564, the date believed to be,
Most historians cite his life as a great mystery.
He lived in a large home with his older brothers and sisters
Where he initially found his golden, dramatic writing key.
At first glance a poet, yet expanding to plays,
Shakespeare wrote Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, and Henry the 8th.
Because of his works and contributions to theater,
Shakespeare was nicknamed Bard of Avon and The Bard.
His plays filled with emotions, conflict, and love
His works have long captured the hearts of all doves.
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" or sonnet eighteen,
Describes the eternal beauty of his love, creating a beautiful scene.
It compares her long lasting beauty to a short summer day,
Allowing us to picture her gleaming in the sun,
Away from the rest of world's gloomy dark bay.
Unfortunately to the world of prose a light dimmed shut,
When Shakespeare left the world with a hint somewhat -
His death is cited as April 23rd in 1616,
Exactly the day of his birth from down within...
Barbara and James explore the question of just who was Shakespeare.
On Tuesday night July 28th at 8 pm est James Luse and I will be doing a blog talk radio show on the question "Who the heck was Shakespeare" . There are many opinions on this from one very talented man who wished to be anonymous to a group or perhaps several or even the work of many. The bulk and scope of his work and the fact that there are no hand written manuscripts also not to mention that the Stratford man's parents and children were all illiterate does seem to beg the question. Call in and give your opinion or just listen to the facts and questions and make up your own mind.
