Still my heart and hold my tongue
I feel my time
My time has come
Let me in
Unlock the door
I never felt this way before

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummer begins to drum
I don't know which way I'm going
I don't know which way I've come

Hold my head inside Your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For You I've waited all these years

For You I'd wait 'til kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done

And say You'll come and set me free

Just say You'll wait, You'll wait for me

In Your tears and in Your blood
In Your fire and in Your flood
I hear You laugh, I heard You sing
I wouldn't change a single thing
And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummers begin to drum
I don't know which way I'm going
I don't know what I've become

For You I'd wait 'til kingdom come
Until my days, my days are done
And say You'll come and set me free
Just say You'll wait, You'll wait for me
Just say You'll wait, You'll wait for me
Just say You'll wait, You'll wait for me

"Til Kingdom Come"

Then Job answered the LORD and said:
I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be hindered.
I have dealt with great things that I do not understand; things too wonderful for me, which I cannot know.
I had heard of you by word of mouth, but now my eye has seen you.
Therefore I disown what I have said, and repent in dust and ashes.

the LORD restored the prosperity of Job, after he had prayed for his friends; the LORD even gave to Job twice as much as he had before.
Then all his brethren and his sisters came to him, and all his former acquaintances, and they dined with him in his house. They condoled with him and comforted him for all the evil which the LORD had brought upon him; and each one gave him a piece of money and a gold ring.
Thus the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his earlier ones.

Job lived a hundred and forty years; and he saw his children, his grandchildren, and even his great-grandchildren.
Then Job died, old and full of years.

from the Book of Job
chapter 42, verses 1-6, 10-12, and 16-17

Don't Worry NY, I Only Like Boston As a Friend

Road trip people!NY to Boston
Boston is only a four hour drive from New York City, so we decided to drive up for the weekend.... the last time I went to Boston was for a high school trip.... and to avoid dating myself, let's just say that was a long time ago....

Let's start our tour at Fenway.... home of the arch-rivals of the NY Yankees.... the Boston Red Sox....

Then there's Harvard University....
and some Boston architecture....
Boston Common....

Boston 033Boston 011
Lots of historical stuff.... sorry, I'm not really in a tour guide mood at the moment.... but here's Larry Bird's shoes, "Union Oyster House" the oldest restaurant in the United States, the Old State House, and Faneuil Hall, the cradle of American Independence....

I've been representin' in NYC! Couldn't be home in Canada for that epic hockey show down last night, so to celebrate Team Canada's awesome defeat of Team USA in OT, I have been wearing my red mittens, raising them in the air, and waving them like I just don't care, all over Manhattan.... did I mention it's too hot to be wearing mittens?.... but like I said... I just don't care....

aside from waving them all over Times Square, here they are at Bryant Park.... Hi Empire State Building!....
here they are at Rockefeller Center.... sup Prometheus....
here they are with Atlas, and the traffic on 5th Ave.... hey Atlas, need a hand....
not only did Canada finally win a gold medal on Canadian soil, but our athletes won 14 gold medals on Canadian soil.... that was more gold medals than any other nation, and the most gold medals won by any nation in the history of Winter Olympics.... Canada also ranked 3rd in the overall medal count.... what?!.... Great job Team Canada!
with glowing hearts an entire nation is proud of y'all, and proud to be Canadian....
