A Life Built On Lies

This past December Christopher Hitchens died. He did not convert to Christianity before succumbing to death by cancer. He did not renounce a life dedicated to warning others of the danger of religion in our world. He had heard the truth of the gospel many times, from many people. He had read the Bible and he did not allow it to change his heart. He chose a life apart from the love and care of the One who created and loved him the most. He walked away from the offer of forgiveness and open arms of God. And then he died.

It Rained Again Last Night

It rained again last night
You know we used to love that sound
From gentle rhythm to pounding surf
Weaving memories in my mind

I guess you decided to save yourself,
No sense two of us going down
But that's not, had we had it planned
And now you can't be found

The streets are wet again
Used to believe rain brought new life
But now I see when hope is dead
Breathing is all that remains

Raise The Crystal

Through the many years
That have come and gone
We've cherished the laughs
and played our songs

For each of us have been
An anchor for
The memories that bind us
      forever more

This I can truly say
You alone are best
When we share our stories
You rise above the rest
