Tenth Avenue North

First, check out my new "gadget" on the side... a direct link to a thesaurus!!! Just type in your word and you're good to go. This is going to come in so handy for me!! So useful... so available... so convenient... so facile... so nearby....

And, just so everyone knows- Sam's okay. He ended up having to get the penny dislodged from his esophagus! Poor little guy. I'm supposed to see him at some point today... I'll get the full story from him then and let you know how he's doing! :-)

Until then... I wanted to tell you about my new favorite Christian band: Tenth Avenue North. Wow ! They are really good! I first heard their song "Love is Here" on the radio a few weeks ago and the lyrics really resonated with me. I couldn't remember the name of the song or any of the lyrics by the time I got home (that's middle age!)... but I just knew I had to find out more about that song so I just waited patiently to hear it again. One night, right at the right moment when God knew I needed to hear it, it came on the radio. I wrote down the name this time and went and got the CD (by the way, it was on sale for $6.99 and I didn't know this until I got up to the register! I was expecting to pay $12.99! Don't you love it when that happens?!) . The whole CD is just so good! I love every single song- the lyrics are so powerful. My two favorites are "Times" and "Beloved". My third and fourth favorites are "By Your Side" and "Let it Go". I would describe the CD as being all about God's personal, unfathomable and unending love and concern for us. Not to mention his forgiveness. Who can't use more reminders of that? I find myself not wanting to listen to it too much because I'm afraid the songs will become old to me and I want them to stay new and powerful!

(From "Love is Here": And to the bruised and fallen, Captives, bound and brokenhearted... He is the Lord, He is the Lord!")
