Being Pensive...sort of

Sometimes I go through a day where nothing of note really happens. Today was one of those days. I can't say that I really did anything important. The only really notable accomplishment for me today was that I loaded all of my broadcast software onto the laptop that I bought. My ex has my other laptops that had things wrong with them and she fixed them. But when we split up, she kept them for herself. When I asked for them back, she freaked and accused me of more drivel that wasn't true. So I prayed on it and decided that she must've needed them more than me. So I let go and I got another one for cheap and am going on with my life. Or at least I'm trying to. I wrote something tonight. I was just in the mood to write with music in my head and I wrote down some lyrics for it... the sad part is... I can't play or read a note! Ha! How's that for impressive songwriting skills??? But I can hum and whistle the heck out of my songs... LOL... I had this in my head and wrote it down...

There are some days when I look to the sky
I think about the past and I wonder why
When all seems lost and I feel like I can't cope
I can feel you there and you give me a sense of hope

That's why I stand on your name
Others can laugh but I feel no shame
When all seems hopeless and lost
I know the love you gave and how much it cost

When my day seems to go on for oh so long
And I come home alone and I don't feel that strong
I lie awake at night when it seems like it won't end
I Wish the sun would rise so I can do it all again

But then I realized that you've been there too
Nothing compares to all that you've gone through
And through it all, you've never abandoned me
You've been there without a complaint just for me

That's why I stand on your name
Others can laugh but I feel no shame
When all seems hopeless and lost
I know the love you gave and how much it cost

Stacey K huh mik?...........lord, you men.........hehe

I saw Third Day back on the Come Together and Worship tour with Michael W. Smith. I still count that as being one of the most spiritual experiences I've ever had.
Now I want to see Casting Crowns! :) Stained Glass Masquerade is the greatest song ever!
