Sing a New Song

She is coming to Dubai at the end of the month.

I want to see her.

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

Reckless, Raging Confidence

“For those who feel their lives are a grave disappointment to God, it requires enormous trust and reckless, raging confidence to accept that the love of Jesus Christ knows no shadow of alteration or change. When Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy burdened,” He assumed we would grow weary, discouraged, and disheartened along the way. These words are a touching testimony to the genuine humanness of Jesus. He had no romantic notion of the cost of discipleship. He knew that following Him was as unsentimental as duty, as demanding as love.”

“Wasteland”

I’m the first one in line to die
When the cavalry comes
Yeah it feels like the great divide
Has already come
Yeah I’m wasting my way through days
losing youth along the wayOh if God is on my side
Yeah, if God is on my side
Oh, if God is on my side
Then who can be against me

There was a greatness I felt for awhile
But somehow it changed
Some kind of blindness I used to protect me
From all of my stains
Yeah I wish this was vertigo
But it just feels like I’m falling slow

Oh if God is on my side
Then who can be against me
Yeah , In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to get by
Yeah, In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to shine
All of these people I meet
It seems like they’re fine
Yeah in some ways I hope that they’re not
And their hearts are like mine
Yeah, It’s wrong when it seems like work
To belong all I feel is hurt
Oh, If God is on my side
Yeah, if God is on my side
Oh, If God is on my side
Who can be against me?

Doggy Heaven

I love you, baby.

I will miss you so much.

Things we can learn from dogs:

1. Run, romp and play daily

2. Never pretend to be something you’re not

3. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy

4. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm

5. Take naps and stretch before rising

6. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them

7. Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory

8. Be loyal

9. When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience

10. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it

11. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle gently

12. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

13. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree

14. Never pass up the opportunity to play a game of hide and seek.

15. When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body – and sometimes kick your feet.

16.No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout….run right back and make friends

17. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

18. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

She was this little cute black thing with floppy ears when we got her, and my entire 7 year old self fell in love.

I cant wait to see you in doggy heaven.
