All I can say is my life is pretty plain...

One bright Sunday afternoon decorated with ice water and soul baring information; deep conversations and laughter that builds in the pit of your stomach and erupts from your mouth; kisses from two year old Marko who plants his mouth on your cheek, squeezes your neck and says goodnight later...and that brings us to today.

and today is good. not any different than yesterday really, and I reckon it's really not that different then last Monday, but you know what is new and real and completely break taking every single morning? His faithfulness.

and that, my friends, is what we must hold onto.

So, someday I may tell you kids this little story I recall as a young teenager meeting a certain celebrity on the streets of Lawrence, Kansas (Rachel, please keep it down. On the DL, please.) but for now, I'm off to class and I will leave you with a song for you to chew on:

"Years ago my heart was set to live on
And I've been tryin hard against unbelievable odds
Gets so hard at times like now to hold on
Guns they wait to be stuck by
And at my side is God

Ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round

People round you tell you that they know
The places they have been, and it's easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down, and stand you in their role
You know you don't have to
You can just say no

And there ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round

I've been built up and trusted
Broke down and busted
They'll get theirs and we'll get ours if you can just
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

Years ago my heart was set to live on
And I've been tryin hard against unbelievable odds
Gets so hard at times like now to hold on
Gonna fall if I don't fight it
And at my side is God

Ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round
Ain't no one goin to turn me round"

Ah...Tiny what a brilliant song...."Hey what was that song you sang before"....A man with crutches strides as smoothly as he can over to the two young gilrs in the corner of the smokey bar....never braking eye contact with the girl who asked the question. The older girl sitts in wonder as the gimp man gets so close to her firends face he's sure to lay a big lip smack on her. He leans in and says "This song"... quietly and seductivly he lays out a tune.girls face is inches away and her eyes are as big as plates...with in amazed grin she say "yaeh thats the one...It was really good" The man stops smiles knowing that he has her in his hand says thanks and tells her song title and who does the best vertion. Still grining as if he controles everyone around him he backs up and leaves the two girls in silince feeling as though they've just had brush with one from Mt. Olympus. (Good times MEL!!!)
