MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

MY HAMMERED DULCIMER
There are various Hammered Dulcimer postings from YouTube of different tunes, and NO I AM NOT PLAYING ANY OF THESE TUNES.Maybe some day when I have the equipment to do so.I have included a link to my You Tube Channel.I invite you to go and watch any of my videos on the site also check out some of the different channels I subscribe to.

ABOUT THE HAMMERED DULCIMER

The hammered dulcimer is an ancient trapezoidal musical instrument played by striking the strings with wooden hammers.

Originating in the Middle East about 2000 years ago, English soldiers brought the instrument back to England after their failed attempt to conquer Persia during the Crusades about 1000 years ago. Dulcimers have many names in many lands: santur in the Middle East, yang q'in in China, hackbrett in Austria, zither in Germany, and cymbalom in Hungary. The name "dulcimer" is derived from Latin, meaning "sweet sound". Hammered dulcimers were popular in England during the reign of James I, when the Bible was translated into English as the King James Bible. The dulcimer was mentioned in the Book of Daniel 3:5 among other instruments "..the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music..." The dulcimer was later mechanized to become what we now know as the harpsichord which later evolved in the piano.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

THE SERENITY PRAYER
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.

A thought

Monday was 4 weeks since my attempt to take my own life. I am Happy to say I am doing better,and I have not had one single thought like that again. I think being off all the darn meds I was taking is helping as well.

Hi, I'm glad to read you're feeling good, thanks for the update and I hope you continue to feel great!

Mike Golch said...

Stephany,I am just gonna keep taking things One day At A Time as I do my soberity.

Mari said...

That's great news! I agree that going off some of those meds probably made a big difference. You're right - one day at a time!

FishHawk said...

I am really glad you are doing better. I have those thoughts quite frequently, and the last 3-4 days have been especially intense. Thankfully, our Heavenly Father keeps from going ahead and taking that final step. For as it is with His Kingdom of Heaven, He hasn't given me a clear picture of what spending eternity in Hell would be like, but He has given me enough to know for certain that even the worst of times in this world is nothing in comparison to the best of times in Hell. Furthermore, the same applies to His Kingdom of Heaven. For even what we would naturally consider to be the best of times in this world is nothing in comparison to the worst of times there.

Yes, there is much about this world that is grossly unfair, and this is by His design. For despite what has been so widely taught in His name about all of the bad things never being meant to happen, be assured that they are all part of the plan that He set into motion even before He created this world. For the apparent unfairness of this world gives us opportunities to give Him the full benefit of our considerable doubts, and He will pour out His gratitude upon all who are willing to do so for all of eternity.

Yes, knowing this makes my own desires to kill myself all the more ridiculous. For I know, which goes far beyond mere belief, that it is all for His glory and our ultimate good, but my flesh is indeed very weak.

I am really glad that you are feeling better and that the thought have gone away. By the way, you are not "stupid," for what you didn't!! Would you call me "stupid" for the same thing? (Thing bothering me from you email)

Clueless said...

I often wish that you and I lived closer and come over and bother you and give you a big hug!!! Somehow, Southern California seems so far away...although, I think the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is there...excuse for a vacation?

Sandee said...

I'm glad you are doing much better Mike. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Have a terrific day my friend. Big hug. :)

Mike Golch said...

Mari,That is how I intend to live from now on.

Fishhawk,all we can do is keep putting everything in His hands. He will help us.

Clueless,I just have to keep living my life one day at a time.Yes the rock and Roll Hall of fame is here.
If we could afford it I would have us come out to CA.I would love to share some of the places that I have been to I think Celestine would enjoy Fisherman's wharf,Whinchester mystery House,Hurst Castle,Cannery Row in Monterey ect.

Clueless said...

Those all sound like great places...I love those areas and places to see. I really want to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...when I am ready. :-)

Syd said...

Mike, I am glad of that. Please let someone know who is close to you if you do have those thoughts again. Take care.

Mike Golch said...

Clueless,the great thing is no matter where you live there are always some fun places to see.

Syd, I intened to.I think the biggest help to was getting off the whole lists of meds and the interections.
