Reflections on the Fourth of July

mood: contemplativecontemplative

It seems everyone is out partying, having a great time. Such is the way you should celebrate a birth...

The Fourth of July for my family was always somethign a little different. It wasn't just the birth of our nation...but the birth of my grandmother. We always used to say the fireworks weren't just for the fourth of july and our independence. But they were to celebrate the birth of one of the most kind, caring and wonderful woman that God ever gave to this planet.

She was the woman who introduced me to the Catholic faith. Who helped me to celebrate that faith while I was younger. She was the woman who introduced the family to its love of Music. She was the one who taught my family the importance OF family. She taught me that life was not so bad at times. She taught me to be strong as she had survived breast cancer for many many years.

As you probably can tell from the past tense of the words, she passed away 8 years ago this August from complications from a stroke and cancer. And I will always remember and miss her. Our family hasn't been the same since she died. At least not in my opinion. I will always miss my grandma. I just wish i knew if she would be proud of me..if she'd be proud of where I am in life...with what i was doing...with..me..

I love you grandma....

And Yes I wrote this last year, same words and I will continue to write this in memory of my Grandmother..every year..

"And he will raise you up, on eagles wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun. And hold you in the palm, of his hands" - On Eagles Wings

On June 16th, 2008 at 10:10pm my Aunt Mary, my godmother, pass away from Rectal Cancer. She was 50 years old. I will miss her dearly, and regret not being the Godson I should have been. I had told her once out of anger that she had failed as a Godmother. She never failed. I love you Aunt Mary.

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
Who abide in His shadow for life,
Say to the Lord, "My Refuge,
My Rock in Whom I trust."

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
And famine will bring you no fear;
Under His Wings your refuge,
His faithfulness your shield.

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

You need not fear the terror of the night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Though thousands fall about you,
Near you it shall not come.

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

For to His angels He's given a command,
To guard you in all of your ways,
Upon their hands they will bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

mood: cheerfulcheerful

I had a wonderful time with my Ashke. He is such a wonderful lil redpanda :) I got in at around 9am to Nashville, we went back to his place, and spent the whole night together until i sadly had to leave this morning at 630 to get back to PHX for work. I miss him terribly. And to my Pet

I love you very much, and I miss you so very terribly. I can't wait to see you this coming weekend. And this time, without the 'rush' of having to fly me out so soon after getting there *hugs Mi~ke very close and smiles*

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

Personality
You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more atheist than religious, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more engineering mind than artistic mind, more cynical than idealist, more leader than follower, and more introverted than extroverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are outgoing (100%), romantic (86%), slutty (74%), horny (67%).

Stereotypes
Punk Rock67%
White Trash50%
Old Geezer33%
 
Life Experience
Sex38%
Substances68%
Travel24%

Politics
Your political views would best be described as Libertarian, whom you agree with around 77% of the time.
  Socioeconomic
Your attitude toward life best associates you with . You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 100% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated R.
By the way, your hottness rank is 52%, hotter than 23% of other test takers.

On Eagles Wings.

Aug. 21st, 2005 | 12:35 am
mood: depressedLonely

At 3am Eastern Time on Sunday August 21st 2005, Jacquline Christie, my grandmother, passed away. She was 77. She pass from complications from Cancer and a Stroke. Suprisingly I am taking it better then anticipated. Thank God that I have the people around me that I do, that i got to see her one final time before she went, got to see her laugh, be happy, 'talk', and even look at her music. It will be so hard to enter her house again and not imagine her playing her piano. I never thought the day would come when the music of my family was silenced. God watch over her. Keep her safe and make her happy. Welcome her into your Choir of Angels for her voice on Earth was that of an Angel.

Rest In Peace Nana...

Here I am Lord
1. I the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save,
I who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them,
Whom shall I send?

Chorus
Here I am, Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord, If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart.

2. I, the Lord of snow and rain
I have borne my people's pain
I have wept for love of them
They turn away
I will break their hearts of stone
Give them hearts of love alone
I will speak my word to them,
Whom Shall I send?

Here I am, Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord, If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart.

3. I, the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied
I will give my life to them,
Whom shall I send?

Chorus
Here I am, Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord, If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart.




Amazing Grace

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.



T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.



Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.



The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.



When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.



"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see. (end)
