The Dr. is in…

seuss

So the verdict is in blogging world…  After much debating and searching we have figured out the “anthem” of our incoming little ones room.  Since we are not finding out what the sex of the little abs will be until the day of birth (roughly January 2) we have decided to go with a vintagy Dr. Seuss look.  Alot of cats, hats, eggs, ham, and horton.  So here’s to you Doc… may you comfort our little one in times of tears… may you keep him warm with your muted shades of reds, blues, greens, and browns… and may you further his knowledge in the area of giving in Christmas time…

She spent the night out with a guy
Who gives attention when she cries herself to sleep
I heard her say
So, she gives him what he wants
As long as he can make her feel okay
But she's not okay

We avoid the topics
We make the kids have secrets
When they are exposed
And everyone else knows
We'll say we never knew it
That they had a problem
'Cause if we would have known
We surely would have solved it
But we can't, it's too late
I said we can't, it's too late

He's skipping classes  'cause he hates them
And hopes he passes not to take them all again
I heard him say
He escapes them with the pills
The ones he takes to make him feel like he's okay
But he's not okay
We avoid the topics
We make the kids have secrets
When they are exposed
And everyone else knows
We'll say we never knew it
That they had a problem
'Cause if we would have known
We surely would have solved it
But we can't, it's too late
I said we can't, it's too late

God, You've got to save us
We hide behind the faces that we make to disguise
The things that we're ashamed of
And all the ugly things that make us close our eyes
They make us close our eyes
Why do we close our eyes?

Lost and Found…

So I found this draft that I wrote in January but never finished…I think it already was though… so here it is…uncut and untouched from January 10th…

Very few things are new when you think about.  Occasionally some genius will come up with a new “Ipodish” invention where I beat myself up for not coming up with the idea myself.  Most things are just a improvement upon an existing establish foundation.  The I pod for example.  The generations will go on and we move from a white screen to a color screen, from a push the button to shuffle to the Shake it like a polaroid picture shuffle now.  But the same underlying theme stands…it plays music.  In my classes we have been discussing the emotional highs that come in our lives.  The times when God feels so close that you can touch.  The times when the band hits the bridge of song, the drum sequentially crash in, and we feel the sudden urge to lift our hands up.  We can walk away from the those moments and say that was the closest to God that I have ever been.  Then 3 days down the rode decide that connection has left us because you don’t feel like raising your hands and singing Mighty to Save in the middle of Burger King (shout out to the whopper).

The question that we asked ourselves is “is God closer in that then He is the ups and downs of the rest of the week?”

hmmm…

ist2_4582167-cool-arrowSo if you haven’t gathered from other posts…I very seldom live in the present.  I am constantly thinking…occasionally dwelling on the next thing…Its a blessing and a curse at times.  I think my biggest problem with these visions are the question of timing.  Is it now or next?  Do I do it now or prepare for it later? So I have to ask the question if these visions I have are now or next?

Vision implies direction. That’s the goal of vision: common movement in a common direction. Direction in terms of progress and momentum, though, is only linear, and “now” ideas get you nowhere.

Today’s now is tomorrow’s yesterday, actually, so if you’re moving at all… it’s backwards. “Next” ideas, however, move our hearts and our eyes and ultimately our hands and feet forward. And that’s the goal…
