Just a little bit of guns & dresses

Ben Rector. Thank you.

So I sometimes process things in different ways.  At times I may need to talk it out with someone or several people.  I may need to keep it to myself and let it soak it in.  Sometimes I need to go somewhere on the water and think.   It could call for serious G-chat with Stephen (we solve all the world's problems). Other times I will write or play guitar.  But sometimes I just need a song.  That is all it takes.  Just one song can sum up how I feel about something or it just puts my feelings in check some how.  Or I guess it can make me feel better.  Well, lots of things have been taking my thoughts captive.  Well, really just one thing.  A very hard thing/news.  Shocking actually.  And I have tried praying (I'm sure it's working) but I just can't wrap my head around it.  And I am not sure how to process it yet.  In fact, it stirs up many different emotions.  Which can be good I guess.  I literally can't get it off or out of my mind.  I have been trying to figure out how to write about it, but I don't know if I can in a positive way yet.  So I won't.  Tonight, on my way to Tyler "the real" McCoy's for non-year team Tues, one of my favorite songs came on.  I have listened to this song and this artist an embarrassingly large amount in the last month and it never caught my attention.  But tonight, it hit me differently.  I'm not trying to be corny or anything, but I just had to listen to it over and over.  I don't even care if this is weird.  So I'm going to share it.  Don't judge, but seriously-this pretty much sums me up at this present time.  For the most part.

Hide Away Lyrics

I got a mind full of questions that just won't let me be. I am weary from the restless heart inside of me. I never cared about believing until I see I've lost my way and then my troubles all around me, and all that I can say see me through another day though the devil’s calling. 

I need a place to hide away from the storm. When the water's rising, when the sun don’t shine, I need a place to hide away and some peace tonight.

Found out life was complicated, all gray and black and white. Sometimes I want to follow Jesus, but sometimes he’s hard to find. I never cared about believing until I see I've lost my way and then my troubles all around me and all that I can say, you see me through another day cause the devil’s calling.

I need a place to hide away from the storm. When the waters rising, when the sun don’t shine, I need a place to hide away and some peace tonight.

When the waters rise around me, when my worry is all I see, oh yea, I call your name and you came and found me. Through the darkness I can see ohh I can see ohh won’t you lead me through another day cause the devils calling. 

I need a place to hide away from the storm. When the waters rising, when the sun don’t shine, I need a place to hide away and some peace tonight. I need a place to hide away could you bring me some peace tonight.


I should also add that I absolutely LOVE Ben Rector.  It's true.  Want to change your life?  Get Ben Rector Pandora.  Yeah. I said that. And it's true.  100%.  And because I love you a lot-if you click HERE you can hear it.  If you hate it (we won't be friends) and your money back....

If this post is bad, I blame it on the emotions.  Or the lack of Dt. Mountain Dew.  Or any sodas actually.  This is day 2 of no sodas.  It was tough, but I haven't cheated yet...

Happy Hump Day manana,

SRS

PS- Tomorrow morning is the annual Sass, Herrin office photo shoot.  I'm sure I will have some stories to share.  I have no cool clothes and it will be cold.  And there will most likely be arguing and lots of passive aggressiveness.  I can't wait! SIKE.
