Paula Abdul - "Cold Hearted"

A Change of Pace

Today I want to share with you one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in a really long time. It's been one of my favorites for almost a year (which is saying volumes if you know how much music I listen to.) Every time that I hear it my heart is quieted, my mind is shifted, my spirit is provoked, my belly burns for more of Him, my love is reflamed, and my vision is cleared. I know it's merely a melody of earth, but I'd like to think that Bethany was deep in worship when this song poured out from her heart. I hope that you will enjoy it and be blessed as well!

"The Kingdom" - Bethany Dillon

It tapped me on the shoulder today when I got home
I saw everything collecting dust
It made me hope there was something more
I pour over pages, desperate to find out why
The cripple at your table has what I'm longing to find

Teach me how to hum it
Because I don't know the words yet

Help me see the light
I'm reaching through the fight
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom
Arms open wide
Death swallowed up by life
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom

Why are some women barren
While the wicked's house is full
The stories never seem to end
Give me evidence I'm not alone
You said the weak would be lifted up
But maybe just not yet
So while I wait in this flesh and blood
I'll learn to lean in

Help me see the light
I'm reaching through the fight
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom
Arms open wide
Death swallowed up by life
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom

A Flock of Seagulls - "I Ran"


After spending a couple of days in this great city I am extremely aware that I would never last here.  

1.  I have to have warm sunshine.  The water is brilliant, but I wish for sunshine in compliment. 
2.  My music is too sweet, soft, and honest for this area.  Everything is loud and mean.  Couldn't do it, sir. 
3.  People are hard.  I love people.  It's really tough to keep my head up without them.  The majority of these people will never get to experience the friendliness of Texas.  That saddens me.  I have come to respect Texans so much in the past couple of days.
I want to move out to San Diego soon.  After Nursing School I'll be out here again, but just a bit Southward.
Now, it's off to another museum.  I'm having fun despite my complaints!  Have a beautiful week, friends.

Christa Black

Christa Black is a very sweet girl and talented musician/songwriter.  She's been a wonderful inspiration to me and she's from West Texas too, kids.  This is a cute little ditty from Miss Christa.  Enjoy!

My Dirty Little Secret

...is...I heart Beyonce!

Uh, take that!  That's right, you heard it from Miss I hate pop music, herself - i even own her new album...!
Why, you ask?  She is a fighter.  She can sang.  She is beautiful.  She brings something a little different, fresher than is already out there.  She can shake it.
Time for you to denounce all association with me...(cough, Sam, cough).
