something beautiful


something beautiful

your life, sacrifice
your price, poured out for me
the day, love would pay
to take my sin, away

something wonderful
something good
you took my brokenness
when no one else could

something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
of me

two thousand years, and three days
hell’s put under, you were raised
to make, scornful sinner
like me, set free

something wonderful
something good
you took my brokenness
when no one else could

something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
of me

you took my pain, you took my shame
you took my brokenness, from me

something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful

something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
something beautiful
of me

box


box

take this box that is tied with string
inside this box is all I have to bring
hold it with two hands
never let it go

take this box although it’s small
it isn’t much but it is my all
please take the scratches
mend them with patches

when the world stops to mourn
because my box is ripped and torn
paper, string is scattered
you are all that matters

this is my box for you to spend
please take it all, form beginning to end
when this box should break
bend or fall

when the world stops to mourn
because my box is ripped and torn
paper, string is scattered
you are all that matters

when this box should break
bend or fall

i’ll say that I have given you my all
they’ll say that I have given you my all
you’ll say that I have given you my all

mum and harlan

mum and harlan visited here with holly and i recently, their entire stay with us was 6 weeks out of their 6 1/2 months on the road. i had some time off of work as did holly and we made a few really fun trips with them, the other time was hanging out @ home and them being apart of our regular busy life here.

williamsburg va, busch gardens, nyc and gettysburg pa were the biggies.

mazda 3

new car

dodgie neon

sold my neon. i paid $500 for this little beauty nearly 5 years ago against my brother phil's wishes from a guy at church. he was sure it was going to break soon hence the wonderful deal.

the speedometer rarely worked nor the odometer which always made life interesting. there was no air-conditioning and it squealed @ traffic lights when the fan was on sucking the power outta the engine.

despite it's short comings it was a really good car needing a little work over the years but for the most part it treated me well.

barry manilow

if i hadn't forgotten my camera i would of taken my own photo of barry manilow last night (sat feb9th). however the photo wouldn't have been as clear from my seat in row Q up in the who knows where. our friends (die hard bm fans) said there were tickets for $9 available and asked if we'd like to come...sure why not, you can't even see a movie that cheap these days.

to our surprise our seat were upgraded to a better section and although we weren't on the floor rather off to the side, we could see really well as long as the ladies in the row in front of us weren't standing for yet another one of their favorite manilow songs.

my favorite part was when they showed one of his first tv appearances singing 'mandy'. as they showed him singing and playing it on the screen from the 70's he rose from underneath the stage playing the same song on the piano and singing a duet with himself.

holly and i didn't really know any of his songs but it was enjoyable from a purely entertainment point of view. good concert.

angry young man 2

Hey, Joel!

I just wanted you to know that Billy Joel has NOTHING on you, my friend! I loved your version of "Angry Young Man" and knew as soon as you played the first few notes what song you were doing.

My husband and I have seen Billy Joel in concert three times (years and years ago!) and he is phenomenal. He plays that song even faster in concert than he does on the CD, and he's just amazing. I must say, you play a wicked piano and I'm sure Billy Joel would be proud!!!! (In fact, I think Fair Oaks Church has its very own "Piano Man"!!)

Fondly,
Dana Molaski

the nutcracker

anna, the girl holly and i take to school each day is in ballet.
every year they do a performance of the nutcracker. i told her that i was going to be in it this year...i said i was going to be the nut! her parents invited us to go see her perform...she's the angel on the right in the video.

christmas/birthday

why write 2 entries when i can double up and cover christmas and my birthday in one...perhaps if i got double the presents i'd be a little more motivated to write twice as much??

seriously i had a great birthday and both holly and i had a great christmas, not the same as being @ home but thats what you get when you move away.

my b'day kept getting better as the day went on, i worked on the 18th for the first time in my life but wasn't feeling so great @ work so i came home and slept it off (conveniently). holly came home in the afternoon and i opened my gift which was a craftsman's tool chest/cabinet on wheels. now that we have a double carport this was a real appropriate girt from my wife...this R2D2 tool box of course fits more tools than i own. fun nonetheless.

the night wrapped up or got started depending how you look @ it with a surprise party @ some friends house. for some reason i'm always surprised, the 18th is so close to christmas i just assume people have better things to do than jump out and scare me. last time i fall for that "hey come look over here line".

christmas was the morning @ home with just me and holly followed by presents and lunch @ her parents. holly got me a espresso maker which is wonderful and i framed a ken duncan picture for holly among other things...they were the biggies.
