Playing my guitar

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 crying at your feet

G D/F#

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 and always.

Happy Anniversary

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!!!!!!

Happy Anniversary to you and Letty! What cute pictures of the two of you. She is gorgeous!

Can't wait to hear your new song someday. :)

I hope you two had a good anniversary. I love the pictures. If Letty was into cavier and diamonds, she probably wouldn't be the right girl for you. You know what I mean. You do have a good picker there, brutha. You look tired, but happy and that makes me happy.

btw, I noticed I have a new follower on my blog. Welcome. :)

Happy Anniversary!! I bet your wifey loved that your gift was so thoughtful and it will probably stand out in her mind over the years. I've been married 21 years and have recieved some incredible gifts over the years from my wonderful hubby, but one that really stands out was on valentine's day, he gave me action figures of Gumby and Pokey cuz one of our early dates was to the contemporary museum of art's animation film festival (a fancy name for watching a cartoons - LOL).
