"Psalm 73 (My God's Enough)"

(by BarlowGirl, featuring Todd Agnew)

Well, the Bible study I mentioned here & here is almost over, so maybe you'll get to stop reading about my lack of contentment soon! I'd have to say that my favorite line of this song is, "Cover my eyes now, so that my heart can finally see that in the end only You mean anything". So true...

"Stand in the Rain"

(by Superchick) Stand In the Rain - Beauty from Pain 1.1

"She never slows down
She doesn't know why
But she knows that when she's all alone
Feels like its all coming down

She won't turn around
The shadows are long and she fears
If she cries that first tear
The tears will not stop raining down

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, what's lost can be found
You stand in the rain

She won't make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself
And the fears whispering
If she stands, she'll fall down

She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything
She's running from
Wants to give up and lie down.


OK, so I picked this song for the title more than the words (but the words are good, so I posted them anyways)! What a storm we had today! Apparently, a couple of funnel clouds were spotted in the area towards the end of the school day. So, the kids had a severe weather procedure, and the carpool line didn't start moving until 20 minutes passed the usual time. Craziness! The funnel clouds didn't touch ground, & it sounded like the news guy was a little upset that he drove out here for nothing! What's up with those crazy people who will stand in the rain, hail, lightning, wind, hurricanes, etc. for a news story?!

"God With Us"

(by MercyMe)

My dad & I are singing a couple of songs at my childhood church tomorrow! I've been listening to the songs all week, and this is one of them. My favorite line would have to be, "Such a tiny offering, compared to Calvary. Nevertheless, we lay it at Your feet."

Have a wonderful weekend!

This is me with my dad:

"Friend Like That"

(by Hawk Nelson)

"I like it simple & I'm not a superman
I never said that I was more than that
I'm not a wannabe, I'm who I wanna be
& I intend to be how You created me

I, I need somebody on the inside
I, I want somebody who can set me free
I'm not the only one who feels like this
I've got a few others around me

Hey let me hear ya say
Make some noise if you feel this way
Hey if you got a friend like that
Hey let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talkin' `bout
Anybody got a friend like that?

I once was little, & I always had a plan
You thought my friendliness was just an act
I'll be your friend indeed, & you can count on me
& I can guarantee, your friend I'll always be


Does anyone out there feel alone?
Can anyone hear me?
Down and out, your heart is cold
It's never easy
But if you believe that there is hope
Then sing it with me


Hey let me hear ya say
Does anybody feel this way?
Hey if you got a friend like that
Hey let's scream and shout
If you know what I'm talkin' `bout
Anybody got a friend like that?


4 reasons why I'm a terrible blogger:

  1. I have a lot to say, but not much that I think you'd care to hear...

  2. I set myself up for failure from the beginning by making it about theme songs. Before I started my blog, I ALWAYS had a song of the day. Now, I just feel pressured to come up with one; and when I can't, I don't blog...

  3. I intended it to be upbeat & fun, but it hasn't turned out that way. Of course, I didn't expect my husband to get diagnosed with cancer a couple of weeks after starting my blog...

  4. Let's face it: I'm just not cool (like this, this, this, or this)! I'd love to be witty & stuff, but I'm not naturally that way. So, I read other people's blogs & see how cool they are, and I feel that I just don't measure up!

So, in effort to blog more frequently, I have created “Scrobbled Saturday”.

Scrobbled Saturday

Each Saturday, I will post the song that I have listened to the most that week. These songs will probably be random & not necessarily meaningful to my current life circumstances. So, I won't post the words unless they are warranted. I hope that's OK! ;) If there's a particular reason why I listened to the song a lot, I'll explain why. I may just talk about my favorite part of the song or a memory associated with the song. We'll just see what happens!

I bet nobody was surprised to see a Hawk Nelson song for my very first “Scrobbled Saturday” post! I must say it was amazing when they performed this at The Revolve Tour last year. (I mentioned this in a previous post last year). It was pretty awesome to sing along with them as they said, "I've got a few others around me..." in a stadium of 6,000 or so people!

"My First Stereo"

(by FM Static)

"Somethin' tells me I'll never be close to
Another like you
Helped me through the things that we all go through
Cuz you make every song sound better
Taught me how to write a letter
I think everyone should get along like me and my first stereo

And you used to sing me to sleep
And always stood behind me

Chorus A:
Everyone wants, everyone needs
Everyone hurts sometimes, like me
It never rejects me, always accepts me
Nothing can compete with my first stereo

Green light, outta the way
Seems like just yesterday
That you played me my very first mix tape
Gave me the courage to say what I wanted to say
When it never comes out that way

Oops, I'm in trouble again
Should of listened to them
Back to my room and then we're safe now
Feels like when we were ten, in my room listenin
To some Michael Jackson, relaxin'

And you used to sing me to sleep
And always stood behind me
You saw me off when I had to go
My first true love was my first stereo

Chorus A

Chorus B:
Everyone wants, everyone needs
Nobody's perfect, just like me
Into the stereo is the place I go
I wonder what's playin' next on the radio

Somethin' tells me I'll never be close to
Another like you
Helped me through the things that we all go through

Chorus A

Chorus B"

I'm sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I've had a little dilemma about this blog. My mister is afraid that I could get in trouble for how I have the songs posted on here. He made my little player & showed me how I can upload my songs to a site that will store them for this blog. BUT, apparently anybody who knows what they're doing can access that site & download the songs for free. I certainly don't want to break any copyright laws & be fined incredible amounts of money.

So, I'm not sure what to do...I can find some songs on youtube, but they've been cracking down on the copyright lawbreakers. And again, I don't want to do something wrong by posting an illegal video! So, if I find a video that is legal (like a live recording or something), then the quality may not be so great. I had the iLike sidebar on here in the beginning, but it only played a piece of the songs that I could find. Sites like that only have some of my favorites, because my musical taste can be a little odd.

For now, I've added a player that contains the songs that I can find. I'll work on finding videos (if they're quality and legal) & only use my current little player for songs that you can't buy anymore (or if we know the artist). What do you think? How important is it for you to be able to hear the song that I'm blogging about? I realize that you may not even like my style of music & may not care to hear it! So, if you're not even listening to the songs anyways, then I'm worrying about all of this for nothing! Please let me know how you feel!
