Audrey Assad's new album Heart...

...comes out February 14th!  Pretty excited about it.  Really love Audrey's voice...and her lyrics are outstanding...stories in songs.  Love it.  Here's the promo video.  Check it out and pre-order...or mark 2/14 down on your calendar and then grab it at a music store near you!  Maybe here?

Pretty much all of these pictures are taken up close.  So the perspective of each shot is basically really pulling in tight to something.  I tried to see them from angles that I don't normally look from as well.

I think just seeing things from different points of view helps to appreciate the beauty they contain so much more. Beauty that...I know I often miss out on because I'm too busy looking at things the way I normally do, doing my normal routine, or simply not taking the time to look at things from a different perspective.

So now, I think I'm gonna try to take more time to see things in different lights and perspectives.

Not just pictures...

but life.

How's it going from your point of view?

Did you know me then?

This is 1995. 

Senior picture. 


Castle High School.

For this particular picture, I remember the photographers giving me the shirt and tie (probably a clip on) and jacket to wear...and for my legs, I probably had jeans (or shorts), socks, and shoes (CAUSE I NEVER WORE SLIPPERS).

I played trumpet back then.  Actually not my senior year.  Too much pressure. But back in high school and intermediate...I did.

Do you call it 'intermediate'? or do you call it 'middle school'?

For me?  It was King Intermediate.  Not King Middle School.  I wonder why it's not just one or the other. Do you know why?  What makes one school an intermediate school and the other a middle school? Anyway...

There you go.

Just a random post.

It's good to look back sometimes.  Remember the good/funny stuff...and see how far you've come in life.  I'm gonna try to do that more.

Also, hope the picture made you smile.

Song Time - Revived

UPDATE: changed this song a little bit. You can find the updated version here.

So just wrote a new song...
Calling it "Revived".
Just a simple prayer to the LORD.
Let me know what you think! (but be gentle please)
Here's the lyrics...

breathe Your breath of life
breathe Your breath of life
breathe Your breath of life
into me
(into me)

And I am revived, filled with Your life
Consumed by the power of Your great love
Your mercy Your grace
My redemption from shame
My sins washed away and I am made new
In You
In You

the deaf will hear
the blind will see
the lame will rise up
the captive will be free

Oh Lord we hear You
Oh Lord we see
Oh God we rise up
For You have set us free

And we are revived, filled with Your life
Consumed by the power of Your great love
Your mercy Your grace
Our redemption from shame
Our sins washed away and we are made new
In You
In You

So there it is...
I'm just trying to write songs because all I want is for us to be able to sing and give thanks to our Savior.
Hope it connected with you in some way...hopefully a good way.

If you 'like' the song, you might 'like' my page, too. I have a FB page here.

Thanks...See ya next time.
