As lightening flashes over somber planes,
          as dawn breaks,
My soul crashes against the shore,
          my soul awakes.

My heart cries out for answers
                              for peace
                              for hope
oh God                   for love.
                    All I get is love...
          and hope...
and peace...

Answers elude me, same as the questions.
          As certain as I am about this,
                    I doubt.

Life crashes, flashes, breaks, dies.
The same my soul, but doesn't die.

The promise, the certainty, the God of all
I beg, I plead, I push, I claw
                    won't let go,
          won't leave me,
won't break.

          The light shines in the darkness,
     but I do not understand it;
it overcomes me.

My Things to Do list (in no particular order):
clean my room
clean the house
mow the lawn
study the Bible
get the "Blue" DVD done
finish my To Do list
do the dishes
pick excursions for the cruise
learn how to write iPhone programs
start working on my To Do list
wash clothes
take care of the puppy
think about starting to work on my To Do list...

*sigh* if only the list weren't so long...


Good Eats!

Friday, May 22, 2009
Out of 210 "Good Eats" episodes (including three specials), I have 142 on my hard drive (including the first), and my collection is growing!

Oh, and they have all been recorded via my DVR, there are no downloads in that collection.

I just found out that an amazing friend from middle school, Kellie Shehan, took her own life over the weekend. She was an amazing spirit full of joy, but also full of great sadness. Please pray for her family and those that knew her.

I just spent 11 hours in the sound booth at church cleaning it from top to bottom... I will do a full write up with lots of pics tomorrow.

EDIT: Here is the link to the post.

Good morning!

Well, I hoped it would be. I went to bed slightly early last night, trying to get a good night's rest. But then I couldn't fall asleep right away, so it didn't help. Plus, it didn't help that this morning I got two phone calls, a roommate that wonders in and out of the house for an hour, and a dog that needs to go out, and in, and scratch scratch, and lick lick... Oh well, I am awake now.

Oh, and lesson learned: using a set of store-bought hair clippers upside down gives you a shorter haircut than you wanted... plus it just looks bad.



A few weeks ago my sister posted a satellite view of our grandmother's house.

I just found, thanks to Google Earth, a satellite view of her house from 1995, complete with full orchard and the road going directly to the tank:

I am frustrated at lots of things today... I am just having a bad day. I am sad.

Then I read my second to last post... that makes me slightly happier.

According to Google Analytics, visits are down on this blog 46.21%. Hmm, think if I posted more it would go back up?
