Lyrics
The Impossible

My dad chased monsters from the dark
He checked underneath my bed
An he could lift me with one arm
Way up over top of his head
He could loosen rusty bolts
With a quick turn of his wrist
He pulled splinters from his hand
And never even flinched
In thirteen years Iíd never seen him cry
But the day that grandpa died,i realized

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
Iíve learned to never underestimate
The impossible

And then there was my junior year
Billy had a brand new car
It was late,the road was wet
I guess the curves was just too sharp
I walked away without a scratch
They brought the helicopter in
And billy couldnít feel his legs
Said heíd never walk again
But billy said he would and his mom and daddy prayed
And the day we graduated,he stood up to say:

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
Iíve learned to never underestimate
The impossible

So donít tell me that itís over
Donít give up on you and me
ícos thereís no such thing as hopeless
If you believe:

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
Iíve learned to never underestimate
The impossible

The Birth of Jesus
In the town of Nazareth lived a young woman named Mary. She was engaged to marry a carpenter named Joseph. He was a good man and was a descendant of King David. Mary would often stop in the doorway of Joseph's shop to say hello. Mary and Joseph loved each other very much, and they looked forward to sharing a long and happy life together.

Long before Mary and Joseph had even been born, one of God's prophets made a very important promise to the world. The prophet said, "An unmarried woman will have a baby boy, and he will be called Immanuel which means 'God is with us.' "

One day, Mary was busy at home when God sent the angel Gabriel to see her. "You are a blessed woman," Gabriel said. "God loves you very much." Even though Gabriel was bringing Mary good news, she was so afraid she couldn't speak. Then Gabriel told her, "Do not worry, Mary. God is pleaded with you. You will have a son and you must name him Jesus. He will be called the son of God. He will have a kingdom that will never end."

Mary asked the angel Gabriel, "How can this happen? I'm not married."

Gabriel answered, "God's Holy Spirit will make it happen. Nothing is impossible for God."

Mary thought a moment then said, " I want to please God. If this is what God wants ,then let it be."

Joseph soon heard that Mary was going to have a baby, and he was upset. He still loved her very much, but he decided it would be best to call off their marriage.

One night while Joseph was asleep, an angel from God spoke to him in a dream. "Joseph go ahead and marry Mary. The baby she is going to have is from God's Holy Spirit. After the baby is born, name him Jesus. That means he will save his people from all the wrong things they have done." When Joseph woke up, he went to see Mary to tell her about the wonderful dream he had had. They were married soon after that.

About this same time, the emperor of the country ordered everyone to go to their family's hometown to be listed for tax records. Joseph's family was from a town called Bethlehem, so he and Mary needed to go there to be counted.

They started off on the long journey to Bethlehem. Mary rode on a donkey, and Joseph walked along at her side. The trip was very hard, especially for Mary, because it was time for the baby to come. Finally, they arrived in Bethlehem. Many other people had also come there to be listed for the tax records. The town was very crowded with visitors.

Joseph tried to find a place that he and Mary could stay in for the night, but the inn had no room for them. Finally, Joseph took Mary to a stable because the baby was coming. There she gave birth to a child. She and Joseph named their newborn son Jesus, just as the angels had told them.

Mary wrapped the baby in wide strips of cloth she had brought from home. She gently laid Jesus in an empty manger, a place where the animals ate. Joseph and Mary were very happy.

That same night some shepherds were guarding their sheep out on the hillsides near Bethlehem. All at once they saw an angel from God in the sky. Great light flashed down around them and they were very afraid.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I am bringing you wonderful news. This very night a Savior was born for you and your people. He is Christ the Lord. Go and see him. You will find him in a stable lying in a manger.

Suddenly the sky was full of angels who joined together to sing praises to God. "Glory to God in heaven and peace on earth to everyone who pleases God."

After the angels left, the shepherds were very excited. "Let us go to Bethlehem and see this wonderful child," they said to one another.

They went straight into town and found the new baby with Mary and Joseph. The shepherds told everyone they met what the angel had said out in the fields. Mary knew she would remember the shepherds' words about her child for a long time.

The shepherds went back to their sheep, singing thanks to God for the new baby as they went. Everything they had heard and seen was just as the angel had told them.

A little later some wise men who studied the stars came from the east. When they arrived in the city of Jerusalem, they began to ask questions. "Where is the baby who is born to be your king? We have followed his star from the east and we want to worship him."

When King Herod heard about their questions, he was worried. He wanted to be the only king in the land. He called together a group of important men and asked them, "Where will the Son of God be born?"

"In Bethlehem," they answered.

Then Herod called in the wise men and tried to trick them. "After you find the baby, come back and tell me so I can see him too," he said.

The wise men set off for Bethlehem, following the bright star all the way. The star stopped right over the place where Joseph, Mary, and the baby were staying. The wise men went in and knelt down to worship the new baby.

They opened their bags and took out gifts for him. They brought gold, frankincense-which smells like perfume-and myrrh, which is a spice that can be used as medicine. Mary and Joseph were surprised at these rich gifts for the child.

Later the wise men were warned in a dream not to return to King Herod and tell him about baby Jesus. So when they started toward home, they went a different way.

After the wise men had gone, an angel from God spoke to Joseph in a dream. "Get up! Take Mary and the child to Egypt now. Hurry, because King Herod is looking for the baby and will kill him." Joseph, Mary, and Jesus left that very night for Egypt. They stayed there until the wicked king had died.

Then Joseph took his family back to the town of Nazareth where Jesus grew from a baby to a young man. He became wise and strong and pleased God in all he did.

It's been a long time!
Well hi everybody! I haven't updated in so long that I'm sure nobody even reads this now but that's okay because I wouldn't read it either!

I think my last entry was in January and nothing has really happened since then! I turned 16 in March and I got my license June 7th! My dad bought me a green Ford Ranger but it's a stick shift and he hasn't had time to teach me yet! Just today he traded his black truck for a little chevy that looks pretty bad! It's automatic and it needs a few things done to it but we're gonna fix it up for me! I think I'm going to paint it pink and I can't wait! It's all so exciting! I still can't believe I got my license!

My brother started racing his motorcycle a couple of weeks ago and my dad bought a dirt bike for himself! He taught me how to ride it and it is the greatest! He's thinking about fixing it up so it's real fast and teaching me how to speed shift so I can race drag strip! I'll probably start next year and I am so excited! My dad and Gregory go to the races like every weekend and we've been a couple of times! It's a bunch of fun to watch and sometimes it's pretty scary! There has been some scary wrecks and last night they had to take a boy out in the ambulance! It's pretty dangerous and that's why I want to race drag strip--because it's easier than racing on a track with all kinds of other people! I'm still kinda scared but it will be tons of fun once I get good at it!

If anybody is crazy enough to read this I'm sorry for boring you with the details of my life but hey it's my journal and you don't have to read it! Amber

Bored
I'm like bored to death right now and I hate to say this but I'd rather be at school right now finishing up my finals. I guess I'm weird but I so want to get them out of the way so I can stop stressing. I wish somebody would get online or call me because I have nothing to do. I've already cleaned the house and there is nothing on t.v. so I'm going crazy. Oh well. I don't really have anything else to say I'm just typing stuff because I have absolutely nothing else to do.

Leave me some comments.

Very Amusing!
Okay so I haven't updated in a while but I have been really bored ever since I got back from church so I decided to go back and read some of my past entries! I went all the way back to when somebody was leavin all kinds of anonymous comments! It was so funny! We were like freaking out cause we wanted to know who it was! I'm like so different now then I was last year...it's unbelievable! I found this quote that kinda goes along with all this...

It's funny how you go through a year day by day and nothing seems to change but when you look back...everything's different!

That is like so true! I can't believe I was so different! I think I said some pretty dumb things! I was also kinda mean! I don't think I would go back and change it though even if it was possible because at that time I was having fun and I think it's neat to see how much I've changed almost a year later!

Anyways on to recent things! Nothing really important happened last week except the game which we so could have won...even though we didn't! It's sad that we lost! Yesterday we went shopping because I had to buy a couple gifts for my friends! It was fun...but of course you already knew that since shopping is always fun! Then today we went to church and that's about it! The rest of this day will probably be boring!

I so can't wait until next week is over! That's kinda bad! It seems like I'm always living in the future! It's always I can't wait til this week is over, next we is over,this semester is over, this year is over, or I graduate and get away from this place! Sorry everybody that reads this and has to hear me complain but this isn't exactly the happiest of times!

Well I've said about everything I feel like saying so I'm going to find something else to occupy my time! Bye!

Leave me some comments!

Well Brenda told us the Hoops Classic is next Wednesday! I'm so excited...that means we'll get out of school which is great!

Well this is not interesting anymore! It seems like nobody reads this so I don't know why I waste my time updating it...probably because I don't have anything better to do but right now I could be reading or sleeping so I'm going to go find something to do! Bye!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while and I don't really feel like updating now but I heard this song the other day and now I feel like putting the lyrics on here!!!

(verse)
Every day after Thanksgiving sell,
Malls just ain't complete,
Without a bunch of decorations and a paper angel tree,

(bridge)
There's artificial smiles on artificial tree limbs,
sayin what she'd love to have and what to buy for him,

(verse 2)
Well I hope Maggie likes her new winter clothes,
And her buggie with a baby doll,
And maybe Thomas smile in his new Nike shoes,
When he shoots that basketball,

(bridge)
I can't help but wishin, that I could do more,
But not just while I'm shoping in the department store,

(chorus)
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers,
No matter where you are right now,
Remember God's right there,
He's asking all of us,
To help take care of all his paper angels everywhere,

(verse 3)
Goin through the mail on this stary afternoon,
I see a mom and dad's worse dream,
Their on the back of a money-savin-add,
To get my carpet clean,

(bridge)
Height, weight, hair, eyes, date missin, and D.O.B.
A child's picture and the words Have you see me,

(chorus)
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers,
No matter where you are right now,
Remember God's right there,
He's asking all of us,
To help take care of all his paper angels everywhere

(bridge)
His documented bruises, film, a folder and a file,
She's a second grade self portrait drawn without a smile,
And every town has litter with this kind of debree,
We've got to stop this madness, it's up to you and me

(chorus)
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers,
No matter where you are right now,
Remember God's right there,
He's asking all of us,
To help take care of all his paper angels everywhere,
Paper angels everywhere

I haven't updated in a while! Sorry to all you people who actually read this...if there are any people who read it! I'm like so bored right now! Yesterday I didn't go to school cause i had an eye appointment and Sarah skipped school so we went to the mall then we saw the movie The Polar Express! That movie is so cute...I loved it...lol!!! The mall was like abandoned cause everybody was like working or at school...it was kinda weird...lol! Well I'm gonna go!!! Bye!!!

Leave comments!!!

Here are some lyrics...this song is like stuck in my head cause me and Sarah heard it in the car yesterday!!!

TIM McGRAW LYRICS

"Back When"

Don't you remember
The fizz in a pepper
Peanuts in a bottle
At ten, two and four
A fried bologna sandwich
With mayo and tomato
Sittin' round the table
Don't happen much anymore

We got too complicated
It's all way over-rated
I like the old and out-dated
Way of life

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack's what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when

I love my records
Black, shiny vinyl
Clicks and pops
And white noise
Man they sounded fine
I had my favorite stations
The ones that played them all
Country, soul and rock-and-roll
What happened to those times?

I'm readin' Street Slang For Dummies
Cause they put pop in my country
I want more for my money
The way it was back then

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack's what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when

Give me a flat top for strumming
I want the whole world to be humming
Just keep it coming
The way it was back then

Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack's what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
I miss back when
