Miles between us,

But now the sky has cleared and it’s blue,
And I see my future in you,”

I have been a HUGE fan of Adele since the summer of 2008, and FELL in love with her album “21” the week it came out.  So incredibly happy for her tonight.

Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.

O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!”

Verse of the Day:
“Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.”

Lyrics of the Day:
“Can’t seem to hold you like I want to
So I can feel you in my arms.
Nobody’s gonna come and save you,
We pulled too many false alarms.

We’re going down,
And you can see it too.
We’re going down,
And you know that we’re doomed.
My dear,
We’re slow dancing in a burning room. ”
~ “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” by John Mayer

Verse of the Day:
“I was so foolish and ignorant—
I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you.
Yet I still belong to you;
you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
leading me to a glorious destiny.”
~Ps 73:22-24

Poem of the Day:
“Daughters of Time, the hypocritic Days,
Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes,
And marching single in an endless file,
Bring diadems and fagots in their hands.
To each they offer gifts after his will,
Bread, kingdom, stars, and sky that holds them all.

I, in my pleached garden, watched the pomp,
Forgot my morning wishes, hastily
Took a few herbs and apples, and the Day
Turned and departed silent. I, too late,
Under her solemn fillet saw the scorn.”
~“Days” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lyrics of the Day:
“Then there was rain
The sky wore a veil of gold and green
At night it was the bright of the moon with me
Time is just floating away

Then there was rain
The sound foundations are crumbling
Through the ground comes a bit of a-tumbling
And time was just floating away
We can watch it and stay
And we can listen”
~ “Rainy Day” by Coldplay

01/05…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.”
~Col 1:15-17

Poem of the Day:
“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dim stream that seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deeds redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare,
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.”
~”Concord Hymn” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lyrics of the Day:
“Something ’bout the way you looked at me
Made me think for a moment,
That maybe we were meant to be
Living our lives separately
And it’s strange that things change
But not me wanting you so desperately

Oh why can’t I ignore it?
I keep giving it in but I should know better
‘Cause there was something ’bout the way you looked at me
And it’s strange that things change
But not me wanting you so desperately

You looked my way and said “you frustrate me”
Like you’re thinking of lines and times
When you and I were you and me
We took our chance out on the street
Then I missed my chance
And chances are it won’t be coming back to me ”
~ “Desperately” by Michelle Branch
