starting fresh (updated)

update: corrected the hymn name in english.
----------------------------

so it’s taken me longer than i thought to try to figure out a way to transfer all of my old posts from blogger over to this site. so for now i’ll just link to the old posts and continue blogging from this time on here.

so it’s been almost 3 1/2 weeks since my dad died. and i’ve found it interesting that not a day has gone by that i haven’t caught myself singing/humming the song “cuando alla se pase lista” (in english that’s the hymn “i’ll be there”). we sang that song at my dad’s funeral. it was one of his favorites when he was in the ministry. what’s been most interesting for me is that i’ve been singing (in my mind) the words in spanish.

if you didn’t know, i do know how to speak spanish. and even well enough to translate and even deliver a sermon in spanish. but by no means, do i think in spanish. i think in english and then translate it in my mind before i say the words. so it’s really caught me off guard to just start singing this song in my mind in spanish.

anyways, i’m not really sure what to think about that. but thought it would be interesting to share.

oh and my sister and brother-in-law are well on their way to a fresh start in a new home. they’ve had quite a few repairs to do. but they should be moving in sometime next week. :-)
