Snow Patrol Chasing Cars

We'll do it all,
everything,
on our own

We don't need
anything
or anyone

If I lay here;
if I just lay here;
would you lie with me
and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
how to say
how I feel

Those three words
are said too much;
they're not enough

If I lay here;
if I just lay here;
would you lie with me
and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told;
before we get too old;
Show me a garden
that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
chasing cars
around our heads

I need your grace
to remind me
to find my own

If I lay here
if I just lay here
would you lie with me
and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told;
before we get too old;
show me a garden
that's bursting into life

All that I am;
all that I ever was;
Is here in your perfect eyes,
they're all I can see

I don't know where;
confused about how as well;
just know that these things
will never change for us at all

If I lay here;
if I just lay here;
would you lie with me
and just forget the world?

Hmm… Time For GongFu?

I plateaued for a while at 260#, 250#, 240#, 230#, and now again at 225#. So I think it is time to add more physical activity to my life to make losing go more quickly again. After all I desire to reach my goal of 199# before the end of this year, if not sooner.

The Repose of my Maternal Grandfather

Last week I was in Nebraska for my mother's surprise 60th party, and stopped to say a final goodbye to my maternal grandfather in the hospital. Yesterday morning he reposed and tomorrow I will start my journey back for the Wednesday funeral. I thank everyone who has prayed for my grandfather, Durward's health, and I would ask prayers for the repose of his soul in addition to prayers for safe journeys for all of my family members and I over the next week. Thank you all in advance.

From the mouth of babes ...

The funniest question came out of the mouth of Derek & Mindy's 5 year old son, Zachary, the other day.

It was, "Dad, why is Nicholas so cool?" I thought it was funny, but also astonished that this 5 year old child looks up to me so much. Kids are so cool. :-D
