Sad Songs Say So Much




Julia-Kate and Rachel.
Tonight as we were driving home from a Father's Day celebration, 13 year old Rachel was listening to her ipod when 2 year old Julia-Kate said she wanted to listen too. Rachel shared one of the earphones and they listened together. Temporarily. I'll let you in on the conversation that ensued:

Julia-Kate: I don't want to listen to this song.
Rachel: Ok, I'll pick another one.
Julia-Kate: I want a sad song.
Rachel: A sad song? Ok, let me find one. Try this one.
Julia-Kate: (listens for a few seconds) That's not sad!
Rachel: Ok, ok, let me get a different one. Ok, this one's sad for real.
Julia-Kate: (listens to new one for a few seconds longer than the first song, and then pulls the earphone from her ear, hands it back to Rachel and says..."I can't listen to this".

I thought I'd die laughing. Where do these people come from?

Ha! That's hilarious! I love it :) Thank you for the kind comments about my blog. It was really nerve wracking to actually tell people about it. Guess it's just another one of those fear tactics satan likes to use to freeze us up and make us useless!
About the book, all I can say is every Christian should read this book. It was wonderful. He is such an honest writer and I appreciated his outlook on life and living everyday with Jesus. And his humor almost sent me off the couch! They guy is a riot. While making you laugh so hard you ache, he pulls at your heart and makes you realize that Jesus is so totally awesome and that we should do whatever it takes to live every breath with him. I hope you read it and like it. If you'd like to borrow it, we can loan it to you!
Love ya!
