in the arms of the good Father
you can go to the deep water
where the questions we have left unspoken
come out in the open

we will find shelter here

so i lay down what i cannot hold in my hands
every sorrow and hope spinning out of control
and here i find sweet resolution comes in letting go

and we will find shelter here

when i look back i can see
and when i am old i'll remember these things
like a mountain of stone
and the longing that makes me believe

there is a tree by the blue river
where the shade stretches wide over
in this breaking we are hand and glove

we will find shelter here

start again

I tend to spend too much money on music. Thank goodness for Noisetrade and Daytrotter, or I would surely be broke. How behind am I on The Head and The Heart? Just found their CD for $7 on iTunes. Totally worth it. If you haven't listened, go! If you have, humor me!

For those of you who know me a little better, I booked my first counseling session today. It's been a long time coming - I'm ready.

I have a job interview next week - it's encouraging to feel like I may actually have a shot at being employed. Seeing as how I took over my student loans for good, I need to be making money soon.

I met the newest addition to the Parsons/McElroy clan yesterday - Zion. I can't get over him. He has the most perfect mouth. In Charlie Brown O shape 80% of the time. Eeeeeee!

Today is the first day in my new old home. It's good to be back.
