Thanks to You, God, for speaking through Hanley at church today (Sunday)!


I came back from Ensenada, Mexico on Friday afternoon.  More detailed details (hehehe) to come later!


American Dream
Mark 8:34-37 / Ephesians 5:25-33
Lyrics: Mark Hall / Music: Casting Crowns


All work no play may have made Jack a dull boy
But all work no God has left Jack with a lost soul
But he’s moving on full steam
He’s chasing the American Dream
He’s gonna give his family the finer things


Not this time, son.  I’ve no time to waste
Maybe tomorrow we’ll have time to play
Then he slips into his new BMW(!)
And drives farther and farther and farther away


‘Cause he works all day and tries to sleep at night
He says things will get better;
Better in time


So he works and he builds with his own two hands
And he pours all he has in a castle made with sand
But the wind and the rain are comin’ crashing in
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands
His kingdom stands


His American Dream is beginning to seem
More and more like a nightmare
With every passing day
“Daddy, can you come to my game?”
“Oh Baby, please don’t work late.”
Another wasted weekend
And they are slipping away


‘Cause he works all day and lies awake at night
He tells them things will get better
Just take a little more time


Chorus


Who’s to say, “Whoever dies with the most toys wins”
But if he loses his soul, what has he gained in the end
I’ll take a shack on a rock
Over a castle in the sand


Now he works all day and cries alone at night
It’s not getting any better
Looks like he’s running out of time


‘Cause he worked and he built with his own two hands
And he poured all he had in a castle made with sand
But the wind and the rain are coming crashing in
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands
His kingdom stands


All they really wanted was You
All they really wanted was You
All they really wanted was You


The picture below is dedicated to Pastor Ted “Drift King” Kau

We actually had a white Chevrolet Express 3500 15-passenger van with a 6.0L Vortec V-8 with 300 horsepower at 4400 rpm and 360 lb.-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm.



On Saturday, August 6, 2005, “Uncle” Tony (Firth) also let me drive his 2003 Ford Mustang GT convertible after our Sunday School teachers’ meeting.  It has a 260 hp, 302 lb.-ft. of torque 4.6L V-8 with a 5-speed manual transmission.  It was so much fun!  I had a smile on my face the rest of the day!
