who's room?

Katelyn and I stopped to look at a house today.  You know, since we'll be without a home in a couple of weeks.  We walked into a boys room and Katelyn said "baby cousins room!"  I said "you mean a brothers room?"  I then asked her again, "Katelyn, who's Andrew?"  Her response, "Andrew is baby cousin Patrick".  I just gave her a kiss. 

new background?

Man, this blog is depressing!  I need some color.  Does anyone know where I can get a better background - one a little more cheery?  I'll find one in the next few days...when I have more time to play around with it.  Stay tuned.  Cheery background coming soon.

a working link

Here's another link to the song - one that I don't think you need a password for.  It has an intro by his daughter.

with hope

"With Hope" by Steven Curtis Chapman.   Seriously, it's beautiful.


With Hope
This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)

There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again
And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears

I see the Father's smile and say well done
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and ...

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so ...

So we can cry with hope
And say goodbye with hope
We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

debbie downer

I've been joking with my sister, Maureen, lately that I should be called  Debbie Downer.  If you remember this skit from Saturday Night Live, you'd understand.  I don't mean to be Debbie Downer, but to be honest, I'm kindof a 'glass half empty' kind of person right now.  Hopefully that will change.  Again, I think it is, just at a really slow pace.  I'm going to post a song in a bit...
