Yesterday (Friday) was a very important day…


Not only were taxes due, but it was also my parents’ 36th anniversary.  The thing that breaks my heart is that my mom and I don’t think my dad remembered.  How can you not remember if taxes are due?!  I really hope he’s aware of going on.  I’ve can’t recall my dad ever saying, “I love you,” to my mom.  I *vow* I will not be the same way with my wife well after we’re married.  I am determined to love her as Christ loves His church!!!


Last night’s message in high school Friday night fellowship was from 2 Corinthians 7:8-10 and was preached by Hanley.


This is the song that came to my mind as Hanley was delivering God’s message to us…it may not necessarily fully pertain to the message, but it’s what came to my mind and heart.


Running to You
Words and music by Geoff Moore & The Distance from the Threads album (©1997 ForeFront Records)


Like the sun on a winter’s day
You can see the light but the heat is so far away
Like a dream of how things should be
Then awaking to a different reality
I’ve grown tired of isolation


I am running to You
Like a prisoner cut loose
In the distance I
Can’t believe my eyes
But You’re running for me too


Like a bird in a guilded cage
Bars of gold that I fought for locked me away
Like a king who’s an exiled man
Waiting to make his break for the promised land
I need to find liberation


I am running to You
Like a prisoner cut loose
And I am reaching out for You
In the distance I
Can’t believe my eyes
But You’re running for me too


There’s a light that is arising
Like a beacon on the horizon


I am running to You
Like a prisoner cut loose
And I am reaching out for You
Like a desperate man will do
In the distance I
Can’t believe my eyes
But You’re running for me
Running for me
Running for me
Running for me too

    Hey, that’s ok. My dad never said he loves my mom. My father doesn’t even hug her! I don’t know how they became a couple… so no worries! I also heard that after marriage, husband and wife usually stop caring for each other… at least romantically.
