Georgia on My Mind

Q: When traveling to London, how do you steal a blonde’s window-seat?
A: Tell her that only the middle row seats are going to London.

We’re traveling to Georgia this week. Byron’s speaking at a youth camp, and while there we hope to see some friends we haven’t seen in years. They have been to us the kind of friends that you can not see for a long time, and yet when you’re back together, you feel like you’ve never been apart.

They walked through some dark days with us many years ago, and we developed a “bond” that is burned deep in my heart. Until that time, we had never had friends as close and as loyal as Dave & Karla were to us. And now, as Byron and I have learned how rare such friendship really is – I feel like we can appreciate them even more.

I wish for everyone to have friends like these even if it’s only for a little while – because it’s really forever.

“I’ll Stand By You” – Carrie Underwood

“Oh, why you look so sad? Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now.
Don’t be ashamed to cry, let me see you through
Cause I’ve seen the dark side too.
When the night falls on you, you don’t know what to do,
Nothing you confess could make me love you less.

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you,
I’ll stand by you.

So, if you’re mad get mad, don’t hold it all inside,
Come on and talk to me now.
And hey, what you got to hide? I get angry too
But I’m alot like you.
When you’re standing at the crossroads, don’t know which path to choose,
Let me come along, cause even if your wrong.

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you,
I’ll stand by you.
Take me into your darkest hour, and I’ll never desert you.
I’ll stand by you.

And when, when the night falls on you baby, you’re feeling all alone,
You won’t be on your own, I’ll stand by you. I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you. I’ll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour and I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you.”

Peace and love (and twizzlers) to you, Angie and Byron
