When I was about five years old, Mom would let me listen to some records she had. I can still remember pulling those heavy disks out of the bottom of the china cabinet in the corner of the parlor, putting my favorite on the turntable and listening to a little girl sing a song called "Open Up Your Heart." I recently found the lyrics and when I read them, I can still hear the little girl singing. "Mommy told me something - a little girl should know. It's all about the devil and I've learned to hate him so. She said he causes trouble when you let him in the room. He will never, ever leave you if your heart is filled with gloom. So let the sunshine in, face it with a grin. Smilers never lose and frowners never win. So let the sunshine in, face it with a grin. Open up your heart and let the sunshine in. When you are unhappy, the devil wears a grin. But, oh, he starts to running when the light comes pouring in! I know he'll be unhappy 'cos I'll never wear a frown. Maybe if we keep on smiling, he'll get tired of hanging 'round. If I forget to say my prayers the devil jumps with glee. But he feels so awful, awful when he sees me on my knees. So if you're full of trouble and you never seem to win, Just open up your heart and let the sunshine in." Written by Stuart Hamblen, 1954, Sung by Kitty Wells.

Beautiful page. Thanks for sharing those old lyrics. I remember my Mom playing those old records too. Love the strip down the side of the awesome journaling. Great looking page!
