Rich (Music Moves Me Monday)



Do you ever catch yourself in conversation saying, "If I were rich I would......" or "When I win the lottery I will....."   I find myself doing that at times.  It is okay to dream sometimes, isn't it?

When I think about this question, I can't help but to think of poor Tevye in Fiddle on the Roof.  He wanted so much to be wealthy.  Here is the song from that movie.  (this is my part of Music Moves Me Mondays)





Does being rich just mean that you have a lot of money?  Can it mean that you are rich in other ways?  Wasn't Tevye really a wealthy man ?

In the dictionary one of the definitions of rich means well supplied, abounding or valuable.  Didn't Tevey really have wealth?

As I look out on my life I too find that I am rich.  I have a wonderful life, not perfect, but rich in so many things.  I have a good husband who loves me and has a good heart and character.  I have the best family and friends in the world.  I have always been blessed to have good people in my life.  I am very grateful for that.  I also have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life.  I would be lost without it.  I live in a great country.

So, therefore, I ask you; Are we all not rich?

I think if we look closely at ourselves, we are indeed rich! Great reminder!

Yes, I feel rich in friends and family but the stress of finances can weigh heavy. Publisher's Clearing house can come to my door anytime! :)

Seldom in conversation but in my mind I 'say' that all the time, like I'm planning what to do if I were rich- silently. Oh I miss Fiddler on the Roof. Your post made me count my blessings anew and yes, maybe I am rich :)

I love Fiddler on the Roof. Oh, yes, we should find the joy in our lives but when struggling to put food on the table,or pay the rent, well, sometimes you just want a little more of the wealth, as far financial desires to help lighten the load. As my son said, "It easy for those that have money or financial stability to say money means nothing."

I love this show, movie, and the character. The lyrics are great and this actor is phenomenal. Great choice. It sure put a smile on my face I'll tell ya.

I have to agree that we are rich. I remember once I was awfully poor that I'd go to bed hungry many nights so yes, rich.
Just like you describe it. Not perfect, good husband etc.

I did enjoy this song.

Have a great week.
