Love song for John Lee....
It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
~(In case you didn't know) Elton John
I got a flower today from a girl on my floor who just found out her mom has AIDS.
We had "testimony night" at FCA and I was shocked to see how many people I share space with regularly are in very real pain. I wish I didn't forget that so much.
I wish I were a better person.
I wish I were a better friend.
I wish I wasn't so afraid to let others get to know me.
I wish I had something happier to write so Riah didn't think I was a whiner.
Thank God his grace is sufficient for me.
So I went to Stand Up this weekend....well, sort-of. Not really I guess. I saw about 5 minutes total of the convention. I don't think I would have really made the effort to go under the current circumstances but I live in Indy so I thought, "Why not?" That question was expediantly answered for me about 2 minutes after walking through the doors.
It was really good to see and talk to those people whom I would not talk to under any other circumstances and catch up on the latest in everyone's lives. However mostly it was the usual "I'm engaged/married/bearing children" or "I'm graduating" etc. etc. None of which are true for myself so I leave feeling like a loser.
There was one development that made me feel a little better though. I found out that all these people from TM (namely staff) are hookin' it up on this e-dating Christian match-making thing. I even got a reccomendation for a book titled along the lines of "Finding Mr Right." I seriously think that is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. It just strikes me as the exact antithesis of what was widely accepted as the "right way" of going about romantic relationships when I was there. Funny.
Anyway, I guess I don't have a whole lot to write and I really need a nap.
