We have been listening thru the songs for the next kids album, and it is a common consensus... Memorials will be the best one yet. I hope it won't be the best one ever, since I would like to do more. I just got a look at the album cover, and I quite like it, too.
I am hoping to have it in my possession by late April, but my hopes have been dashed many times in my life...

And now, for the fifth time...

I am reading through the Lord Of The Rings trilogy with my kids. The littler ones haven't heard them yet, since it has been about 4 years since the last pass through, but now some of them are grown up enough to sit for long periods at a time. The older ones are all making comparisons/contrasts to the LOTR movies, and having a great time. In fact, one of them is pestering me to read just now...

Good lyrics

Frightened by a world which they will never understand
The masses ride their passions with the throttle in their hands

Mark Heard - "I'm Crying Again"

He really knew how to settle a score
Mercy knocks on the devil's door
When I pray for peace and revel in war
I always wanted a shirt like Mark wore...

The Choir - "The Rifleman"

I have been working on some more Bible story songs. Someone suggested to me the story of Elisha and the two bears. Now, this is surely going to be better than Goldilocks and the three bears...

Here it is;

I hate to be the bearer of bad news
To bear the news that bad news comes in twos
Two bad news bears are giving you the blues
The boys were out engaging in their play
Now forty-two of them have gone away
Your sons are dead, your calf is here to stay
The mocking of a godly man is learned
Your golden idol wins, but you get burned
Consider this the wages you have earned
If boys are being boys it's so extreme
If not, then give a thought what this could mean
When idols paint the color of their dreams
Then boys will be boys will be boys will be...
