Song Conversations

I love this song because it reminds me of discussions I have had. Only, it wasn’t in November. It wasn’t raining. And he wasn’t 3.

by Building 429

I was standing in the pour raining
One dark November night
Fighting off the bitter cold
When she caught my eye
Her face was torn and her eyes were filled
And then to my surprise
She pulled out a photograph
And my heart just stopped inside
She said He would have been three today
I miss his smile, I miss his face
What was I supposed to say

But I believe always always
Our Savior never fails
Even when all hope is gone
God knows our pain and His promise remains
He will be with you always


… is something I do a lot.

One of my biggies (besides randomly coming into a heck of a lot of chash so I can pay off my school bill) is that all of my friends/family will come to Denver.

Well… in the light of this being AWP week in Chicago, I figured I would do a huge shout out to my prayer answerer in that next year… 2010… AWP is comin’ to Denver.

I am so excited! This makes me want to hug people. A lot. Eeek!

For Good

I finally found a song that expresses my thoughts about all of my friends and family, and while I am trusting, praying, and hoping that I will get to see most of you in Heaven, here are some parting words, this side of Grace (plus, when I get to Heaven, I will probably want to spend more time with Jesus than you… no offense ;))

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend…

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

I have been changed for good

Jack Kerouac

My official Jack Kerouac moment occurs Friday. Milwaukee to Chicago to Colorado to Chicago to Milwaukee in less than 24 hours.

Ideas for books to take on the plane would be useful! 😉
