Tuesday Tunage...Addie Edition

So I go to pick Add up from her visit with her Memaw and Papaw's today.  On the way home I turned on Pandora Radio (BEST. FREE. RADIO. EVER...) and tuned it to the VeggieTale station.

She kinda hummed some of the tunes and identified them to shows she has watched over and over.  Then, it happened.  A version of Rich Mullins' "Step By Step" came on.  Addie sang that song like she had wrote it.  I was mesmerized.

To listen to her sing that song with all her little heart was more than mine could take.  I drove the rest of the way home with tears in my eyes.   They were tears of pride, as well as a little sadness.  Here I am, a grown man, who says he is thankful for what he's been blessed with, but I don't say thanks enough.

I sing all the time, but hardly a praise song comes out of me unless I'm singin' in church.  And here is this little girl who has just recently learned to speak fluent English, and she can out sing her Daddy.

Today I learned a lesson about praise music.  You can put it to the most beautiful instrumental backgrounds in the world, sang by the world's greatest singer and it may not reach a soul.  But let it come out of the mouth of a child and the world can be changed.  I know mine was today...

Thank you Addie for touching my heart today, and thank you Lord for Addie.

The New Guitar

That's right folks, I got the new Taylor!!!!  Well...truth be told, it's a used Taylor, but it's pretty darn new to me! I have been eyeballing this guitar for months now and had fully planned on buying it when we got back from our little family trip, but our house was broken into.  Nope, not burglars or nothin'...broken into by termites.  We actually think they were here before we moved in and we just happened to discover them by chance days before I was to spend a nice chunk of change on said guitar.

Luckily through shear strategery...(that's right Dubya, we won't forget), my wife found a way to pay for the termite extermination, reconstruction of our home, AND get said guitar!!!

Daddy's pleased, and so should you be.  I am fully functional in my recording now and will be sharing it with you in the weeks to come.  Cris over at GOODeness Gracious has already put me to work on soundtracks for her blog.  I guess you could say I'm for hire, as long as payment is in awesome meals and lotsa love.  (That's how we do business in our house)  ;P

A Sign???

So I was at work last night when I got a craving for something sweet.  I strolled to the machine and found some Kellogg's Fruity Snacks.

I tore into those bad boys with a mission for a sugar high.

Then, I noticed something a little strange...

Something just didn't look right about one of the candies...

I found this in my bag of gummy candies...I kid you not...

Some folks see the image of the Virgin Mary in a tree trunk, others see the image of Christ in their burnt toast.  I was given the sign of a wiener in my Fruity Snacks...what does that mean???
