Just want to fly music promo by Franny Schultz

Just want to fly

 Music & Lyrics by Franny Schultz ©2015

Angels fly 

in my mind

As I hover over the trees

I see the horizon

I see the sky

I don’t know why, why, why

I just want to fly. But you

Keep bringing me down,

Into the ground,

into the ground

I just want to fly

You just want to

pound me into the ground

I just want to fly

I just want to fly

I don’t even want to cry

Don’t even want to cry

 

Just want to fly

I don’t want to fight with you

Hey, why’d you make me so blue, hey you

Just when you want to go home

I just want to be free,

free

Just let me be me.

I ain’t perfect and who is?

Do you know anybody who is?

Oh, show me, show me, show me.

Don’t push me into the ground

I just want to fly

fly free,

fly away free

Don’t want no more of your abuse.

Tired of your putting me down.

Hey, don’t want you around

Just so you can kick me down

I don’t want you around.

Old Glory Music Promo by Fran Schultz

Old Glory - This famous name was coined by Captain William Driver, a shipmaster of Salem, Massachusetts, in 1831. As he was leaving on one of his many voyages aboard the brig CHARLES DOGGETT - and this one would climax with the rescue of the mutineers of the BOUNTY - some friends presented him with a beautiful flag of twenty four stars. As the banner opened to the ocean breeze for the first time, he exclaimed "Old Glory!”

 

He retired to Nashville in 1837, taking his treasured flag from his sea days with him. By the time the Civil War erupted, most everyone in and around Nashville recognized Captain Driver's "Old Glory." When Tennessee seceded from the Union, Rebels were determined to destroy his flag, but repeated searches revealed no trace of the hated banner.

Then on February 25th, 1862, Union forces captured Nashville and raised the American flag over the capital. It was a rather small ensign and immediately folks began asking Captain Driver if "Old Glory" still existed. Happy to have soldiers with him this time, Captain Driver went home and began ripping at the seams of his bedcover. As the stitches holding the quilt-top to the batting unraveled, the onlookers peered inside and saw the 24-starred original "Old Glory"!

Captain Driver gently gathered up the flag and returned with the soldiers to the capitol. Though he was sixty years old, the Captain climbed up to the tower to replace the smaller banner with his beloved flag. The Sixth Ohio Regiment cheered and saluted - and later adopted the nickname "Old Glory" as their own, telling and re-telling the story of Captain Driver's devotion to the flag we honor yet today.

Captain Driver's grave is located in the old Nashville City Cemetery, and is one of three (3) places authorized by act of Congress where the Flag of the United States may be flown 24 hours a day.  Source: USflag.org

Saint Joan of Arc Tribute Music Promo by Fran Schultz

Saint Joan of Arc Tribute * Music by Fran Schultz * Mine is but a little musical tribute to such a great, courageous and inspiring woman. I hope it serves to shine light on her and inspires you to dig deeper into her mystery, explore the depths of faith she so valiantly and courageously lived in her short life of 19 years. Since hearing the story of St. Joan of Arc when I was a child prior to receiving Confirmation I have been fascinated & inspired by her. Her Feast Day is May 30.  Born in 1412 and Executed on May 30, 1431 AD. Joan of Arc was nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans.” Graphic Music Promo for Saint Joan of Arc Tribute by Fran Schultz.  Upper right: Battle Banner Flag of Joan of Arc, historical account supported by other paintings, as used by Joan of Arc in 1429 AD  * Upper left: Joan of Arc – John Everett Millais (ca.1888 AD) Private Collection * Lower painting: ‘The Life of Joan of Arc’ Triptych, Stilke Hermann Anton (1843 AD), Hermitage State Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia *  Quote by Joan of Arc herself:  “Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, and so they give their lives to little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it – and then it’s gone. But to surrender who you are and to live without belief is more terrible than dying – even more terrible than dying young.” Notes/for further reading:   http://www.knightstemplarorder.org/templar-joan-of-arc  and here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_of_Arc

The Beatitudes Music Promo

 

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.

Blessed are they who hunger & thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you [falsely] because of me.

Rejoice & be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.  Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12
