“Mary Catherine”

I’ve gotten good responses from this song so I figured I’d post it online. Basically it’s just about a guy telling a girl his idea of what their relationship would look like if the girl just said “yes”. Enjoy!

 

“Mary Catherine”

chorus
Mary Catherine
with your beautiful grin
oh how I’d like to be
your one and only
Mary Catherine
who’s beauty never ends
will you be mine
till the end of time
 
we’ll be young and free
living all happily
where the picket fences are
underneath a sky of stars
or maybe build a cabin
warm, cozy, and wooden
on a moonlit lake
for just you and me babe
but no matter where we go
we’ll make that house a home
 
chorus
 
we’ll be every good cliché
growin’ closer everyday
each and every year
you and I my dear
we’ll never shut our eyes to sleep
with our hearts not at peace
we’ll talk it out
and we’ll work it out
 
chorus
 
we’ll treat this like the gift from God it is
and we’ll show the world how beautiful His love is
 
chorus

One Minute Blogs-The Gift of Thankfulness

One of the things that attending college has taught me is how blessed I am. That statement is not backed by an impressive bank account, it’s not backed by having millions of adoring fans, it’s simply backed by thousands of little things. Little things such as plumbing, health, clean water, friends, a caring family and etc… things that are taken for granted by our society, a society that views the “1%” as evil, yet fails to realize that compared to the rest of the world, many of those people are close to being in the “1%”. When it comes down to it, thankfulness is not a destination made of things, but rather by choosing thankfulness. For me it even means even being thankful for the hardships and the not so good times I’ve had in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that we should view bad things that happen to us untruthfully or ignorantly, but rather we should view them as things that can help to define us and help us. Because being thankful is all about viewing things, as the blessings they are.
