Verse of the Day:
“How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the LORD’s praise,
for he has been good to me. ”
~Ps 13

Lyrics of the Day:
“Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself, that’s enough for now
Happiness has a violent roar”

So incredibly proud!  Beautiful my friend…the album is a work of art.
come quite a ways from playing on the hill at carpenter park.

Quote of the Day:
“You Found Me is a tough song for me.  Its about the disappointment, the heart ache, the let down that comes with life.  Sometimes you’re let down, sometimes you’re the one who lets someone else down.  It gets hard to know who you can trust, who you can count on.  This song came out of a tough time, and I’m still right in the thick of it.  There’s some difficult circumstances my family and friends have been going through over the past year or so and can be overwhelming.  It wears on me.  It demands so much of my faith to keep believing, keep hoping in the unseen. Sometimes the tunnel has a light at the end, but usually they just look black as night.  This song is about that feeling, and the hope that I still have, buried deep in my chest.”

“Indian Schoolboys” by h.wilson

Lyrics of the Day:
“Half way around the world lies the one thing that you want
Buried in the ground, hundreds of miles down
The first thing that arises in your mind when you awake
Is bending you til you break, let me hold you now

Baby close your eyes, don’t open til the morning light
Baby don’t forget, we haven’t lost it all yet

Don’t know what you’re made of til the one thing that you want
Is coming with the dawn and suddenly changes
The Monday syndicate meets everyone the same
All we’ve lost to the flame, listen to me now

Baby close your eyes, don’t open til the morning light
Don’t ever forget, we haven’t lost it all yet
All we know for sure is all that we are fighting for
Baby don’t forget we haven’t lost it all yet

Someday when this is over
We may still have no answer
For now its when I hold her
We are closer, we are closer

Baby close your eyes, don’t open til the morning light
Don’t ever forget, we haven’t lost it all yet
All we know for sure is all that we are fighting for
Baby don’t forget we haven’t lost it all yet
We haven’t lost it all yet

We are closer, we are closer”
~ “Syndicate” by the fray

Verse of the Day:
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. ”
~I Cor 13:1-3

Quote of the Day:
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours…”

Lyrics of the Day:
“Trying not to lose my head but I have never been this scared before
Tell you what I’ll do instead, lay my body down on the floor
To forget what I’ve done, silhouette til the good lord come
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
Trying not to lose your own, boxing up everything, you’ve got
All you ever knew of home, you’re scared scared to see
Your mother there in the door, you wonder where did the years go
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is how the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
The violins make no sound
And I begin to feel the ground
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is where the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one”

Verse of the Day:
“The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight for living.”
~Ps 19:7-8

Quote of the Day:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves,  Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ “Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson

Verse of the Day:
“May your ways be known throughout the earth,
your saving power among people everywhere.
May the nations praise you, O God.
Yes, may all the nations praise you.
Let the whole world sing for joy,
because you govern the nations with justice
and guide the people of the whole world.”
~Ps. 67:2-4

Video of the Day: both of these artists rank in my favorites category because they both sing with such conviction and honesty…so to see them together is a joy

Lyrics of the Day:
“Happiness is just outside my window
Would it crash blowing 80-miles an hour?
Or is happiness a little more like knocking
On your door, and you just let it in?

Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can’t make it come or go
But you are gone- not for good but for now
Gone for now feels a lot like gone for good

Happiness is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Happiness was never mine to hold
Careful child, light the fuse and get away
‘Cause happiness throws a shower of sparks

Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself, that’s enough for now
Happiness has a violent roar

Happiness is like the old man told me
Look for it, but you’ll never find it all
Let it go, live your life and leave it
Then one day, wake up and she’ll be home
Home, home, home”
~ “Happiness” The Fray
