And you thought it was Spring...

silly rabbit.

I know this is a bit redundant - I've said it a few times today - but seriously? SNOW?? in APRIL??? Nice April Fool's joke for us, as that's the forecast for tomorrow. 

Yeah, I know, I live in Chicagoland and we have 2 seasons, winter & construction. In reality, we actually have a couple weeks of spring and fall - whether you believe it or not. And it tricked us, as it always does. We had a (literally, one) week of beautiful, sunny, mid-50s to mid-60s weather. Then it got colder again as expected, and the threat of snow is always there when the overnight temps lie around 20-25. But as it gets closer to April, we all always hold out hope that it won't snow again. Of course, it always does. How have we not learned this?
Hope springs eternal.

And the sun comes back on Saturday.

I need You

I have not been abandoned, no I have not been
Deserted and I have not been forgotten

I need You
I need You here
I need You now
I need security somehow
I need You
Like you would not believe
You're the only thing I want
Cause You're everything I need

"I Need You" by Relient K

It's all I've got today.

Ditto to what? This.
Probably this too...
Plus, work is ... work.

to quote myself: "Trust on."

to quote David:
"...He is my fortress. I will never be shaken." Psalm 62:1-2

to quote the One Who loves me:
"And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness'... I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me...for when I am weak, then I am strong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Did you?

Did you listen/buy/fall in love with it yet?

If you don't know what I'm talking about, you've missed a couple days with me... and you should check it out.

Sick beats, a great hook, good lyrics, a catchy tune, the rhymes - what more could you ask for??

Sounds good, huh?
You should click this.

B.Reith Single TODAY!!!

Today's the day! B.Reith's new single, "Knockin' on My Door" is out! It's already noon, it's been out for 12 whole hours, so hopefully you've checked it out since my excitement from yesterday, but in case you haven't DO IT NOW!
I was so excited that this morning, I only did one thing before purchasing the single: this morning's Twitter post. :) So so happy!
It was followed immediately by the purchase.
You can do it too! Now! Do it now! You won't be sorry. - Plus, I just found this promo video for the single!! ;)
The sad thing is, once it had finished downloading, I had to bolt out the door to get to my meeting on time (stupid slow computer and it's stupid slow downloading...a story for another day), so I emailed my newly purchased B.Reith single to myself, and buzzed out the door.
This means, my first hearing of the (amazing) song was JUST before this post. I LOVE IT!! It's on 'Repeat (1)' - anyone in my office has no choice but to love it as much as I do, or suffer if they don't, but so far, they all like it - so fun! I believe I'm on time number 4 already - I keep stopping my typing to listen.
Thanks, B, for another amazing song.
Can't wait to hear what's next. :D
