Things I Miss

I MISS:

having a REAL job, the kind where you have a routine and your family doesn’t wonder what you are going to do from day to day.

those little boys that loved Thomas the train, throwing the Pooh ball in the house and sitting in Daddy’s lap in Daddy’s chair.

the small town and community I used to live in.

my old dirt bike.  I felt like I could go anywhere at any time.

my grand mother’s (plural) cooking.  There gone, but can you imagine what heaven smells like now?

being in shape.  I actually used to feel like an athlete.

the days when we were not instantly accessible.  No phones, no lights, no motor cars, not a single luxury.

going fishing with my Grand Dad.

being able to stay up real late and sleep real late the next day.

spending the day at Six Flags as a kid.  Riding rides twenty or thirty times in a row.

playing football, baseball and basketball competitively.

some of my hair.

the slower pace of life.

someone being offended because you didn’t wave when you passed them at a four way intersection.

How bout you?  Do you miss anything?

My new favorite band and song

Recently, I have become a fan of Sanctus Real, a new group for me. They have a song that really stopped me in my tracks. Check out these lyrics, I’m sure many folks can relate.

Whatever You’re Doing Lyrics
Artist(Band):Sanctus Real

It’s time for healing time to move on
It’s time to fix what’s been broken too long
Time to make right what has been wrong
It’s time to find my way to where I belong
There’s a wave that’s crashing over me
All I can do is surrender

(Chorus)
Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos somehow there’s peace
It’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
but I’m giving in to something heavenly

Time for a milestone
Time to begin again
Revaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow your will
or just climbing aimlessly over these hills
So show me what it is you want from me
I give everything I surrender…
To…

(Chorus)

Time to face up
Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I’ve wanted to say for so many years
Time to to release all my held back tears

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You’re up to something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This is something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly
Something heavenly

It’s time to face up
Clean this old house
Time breathe in and let everything out
