Special song for you this "Fathers Day"

Long ago, in a far away place (okay I haven't really moved and it wasn't THAT long ago :)). Anyhow, some years back, I wrote a song for my daughter Priscilla when she was just an infant. The lyrics talk about how hard it will be for us as parents to watch her grow up, and eventually leave the nest. Well that infant is now 16 years old, and just two years away from High school graduation. My wife and I are definitely starting to FEEEL it as she gets closer to adulthood. On one hand, we love watching our children grow up, and mature into young adults, then on the other hand it's going to be so hard to let them go some day.

"Your Love is a Miracle" is the song I wrote and below is a link a live video recording I did this week in honor of Fathers Day (and the Mothers Day just passed). Some of the lyrics:

"All that I love, now she's grown up...I'll miss the days..when she was here.."

For anyone who is a parent, perhaps you can relate to this. Or maybe you are the son or daughter watching your parents go through these mixed emotions. Either way, I hope you enjoy the song and video for "Your Love is a Miracle".

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there this Sunday - enjoy some extra family time - your kids and you deserve it!

Peace, Love & Laughter,

June is finally here and it's Hot HOT HOTTT

June is finally upon us and the temperature is scorching already. In my blog post just two weeks ago it was barely getting to 60 degrees, and now we've got a mini-heat wave of 90 and above. Would be nice to get some middle ground wouldn't it :)

Prayers for Oklahoma

Speaking of the weather, I was very sad to see that more tornados touched down in Oklahoma and surrounding area's yesterday killing some more folks. Tornado alley seems to be getting hit really hard and early this year. Praying for the families who lost loved ones and all those affected by this.

Love and Kidneys - Match made in Heaven

A Kansas City man proposed to his girlfriend at a KC Royals baseball game this week...this soon after she donated a kidney to him earlier this year (turns out she was a perfect match). This is definitely a feel good story that helps remind us how important organ donation is. Read more about this story here KC Royals fan proposes to donor girlfriend at the game.

PINK having FUN with "Just Give Me a Reason"

When I first heard this #1 song by PINK (and Nate Reuss from FUN), the haunting piano melody drew me in immediately. Then the touching lyrical story reminded me how fragile our love can be at times...lines like "You've been talking in your sleep...oh oh, things you never say to me...about our love..." coupled with the music will just get to you. If you haven't already heard it or want to to hear it again check it out here:

MAY Winners & Voting Charts updated for June
