My Amazon Wish List

So I was listening to Ryan Adams on youtube performing "When the Stars Go Blue", and I was listening over and over since I am learning to play it, in fact I am listening now or at least trying to as the song loads via air card 10+ minutes outside of Philly on the Amtrak.
(link to song above)

I had noticed this book earlier, something caught my eye from a good distance and I don't know what it was; was it the title, the cover, something....what was it???

Little Princes-One man's journey to bring home the lost children of Nepal-- My kind of book. A book of meaning of substance, a book that makes a difference about a man who did so.

I had set a reminder in my phone with the book title so that when I was training home it would pop up and I could check it out and it did, while I was listening to stars going blue, over and over. I viewed the book decided I wanted it, but first need to finish the book I am reading and the one in the waiting line.

I went to save the book, save it to my Amazon "wish list" and it was then, scrolling through the 43 items on that wish list that I realized...I may not have time to read all of these books. It was then I realized...time, time, time and you.
Do i know you, have i told you, told you I love you?

I love you.

Peace friend peace

take me home

Phil Collins is the type of artist that I have always loathed. He made it successful in the pop world and to me that automatically strikes you from my listening, except I secretly liked him.

In 1985 Phil put out an album called "No Jacket Required" and on it is a song that I find myself singing more times then I care to admit. No it isn't Sussido, thank God, but "Take Me Home" and I think the reason I find myself signing this is I am actually praying/speaking it to God.

I long for crying, no dying, no pain, no more tears....yes, I believe in the good of the God, and I long for it.

Believing in Jesus and heaven is not something I do out of thinking I am imperfect or for reasons of submission; as much as having searched the world, the scholars of the world and the hearts and minds of men and womanI have found few truths of life-- God is one of them.

"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise." Proverbs 11:30
