It feels good to be playing my guitar. I probably should be sleeping. I did nap for about 4 hours earlier so I can probably get away with it. I have this new song that I'm working on that's coming together nicely. It's based on this verse of the bible.
The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. - Matthew 8:8.
It's something that we said ad infinitum in Catholic Mass back when I was a kiddo. It starts of slowly and softly....
Lord I'm not worthy
To receive you
But only say the word, Lord
And I shall be healed
I get down on my knees
I'm giving everything
I'm giving everything
I'm crying at your feet
So cleanse me
It sounds pretty cool to me. I recorded it a couple of weeks ago but I haven't found a way to change it from being a one kind of a file to another kind of file. Grrrr.
My anniversary is today but my love is away at work. I bought her some candy and got her a card after I got off of work this morning. Not just any candy, mind you. Good n Plenty and bubu lubu. Her FAVORITES. Because that's what a man does on his anniversary. He tries to remember what the heck his woman likes and provides her with it. Thank God she's a simple woman. If she loved diamonds and caviar I might be in a little trouble.
In my family I've always been the best card picker. Probably because of having the heart of an artist or whatever they call it these days. Here's the card that I got her, not my words, the card's words but definitely my sentiments.
For My Wife
There are so many things
I love about you.
I love the way your face lights up
When you laugh.
I love knowing that
I can still make you smile.
I love the way you bring out the best in me
And won't let me settle for anything less.
I love the gentle ways you have
Of smoothing out a long day's rough edges.
I love the feeling of contentment
that comes from beginning and ending
each day with you.
Everything you do...
Everything you are....
Everything we have together.
That's what I love...now and always.
Isn't that a great card? Like I said, I can pick 'em.
I can pick wives pretty well also. I love you baby, happy anniversary, hugs and kisses!!!!!!
