I have missed blogging very much and thought I might start a post here or there again.
Maybe someday I will even let you know some of what's been going on since last Fall when I posted last.
Today, I just want to share some lyrics with you.
Lyrics from the most inspirational singer to my life.
Here are the lyrics to "If I Stand" with a link to RICH HIMSELF playing and singing it for us on April 11, 1997, the year he died. Man, I miss you Rich.
If I Stand
There's more that rises in the morning
Than the sun
More that shines in the night
Than just the moon
There's more than just this fire here
That keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger
Than this room
There's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiment
A music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of earth competes
For the allegiance
I owe only to the giver
Of all good things
So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That You will pull me through
And if I can't let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
If I sing let me sing for the joy
That has bornin me these songs
But if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home
There's more that dances on the prairies
Than the wind
More that pulses in the ocean
Than the tide
There's a love that is fiercer
Than the love between friends
More gently than a mother's
When her baby's at her side

And then I accidentally flipped onto another video from the same performance in Wheaton. He had just put down a milk shake and then said,"They always say you should never drink milkshakes before you sing. And I didn't. I just think that morning is worse than a milkshake and if I had my options I'd rather be hoarse because of a milkshake than because of morning. If you want to know the whole truth about it.
