I wrote a new song a couple days ago and was messing around with it in Garage Band (I so wish I knew how to better use that program! The quality of this recording it terrible!)
I just wanted to thank Jesus for all the things He is to me. Hope if you listen, it will help you do the same. :)

You know my two favorite stars? The ones whose names I never forget and I saw them in the constalation Orion?
Not so much.
Reading in my (aptly named) "Astronomy For Dummies" book today, I realized that when I thought I was looking at Sirius I was actually looking at Rigel.
Now Rigel is a REALLY cool name for a star too.
It wasn't Sirius!!
And here I was so impressed with my stellar skills. Epic fail.
*Sigh!* I still have a lot to learn....

Just a few hours ago, I was on the beach in Naples, Florida. With my toes dug into the cool sand, I watched as the last orange, searingly brilliant sliver of sun melted into the sea.
Breathtaking. There's not much that makes me worship quite like a sunset in Florida.
After the show, I trudged up the soft sands to where my Grandpa Oriti sat on a bench. The breeze was constant but gentle, and the palm trees were now silhouetted black against the tangerine sky. I sat next to Grandpa and we were quiet for a while. Then he inched his arm gently around my shoulders and broke the silence.
"You know what, Dani?"
"I think I could sit here with you for....
....for another three minutes or so."
