Cheese cakes and song lyrics

Yes this is the best name for this posting.. Right now I have this cheesecake in the oven it seems like it is taking forever to bake... WOW i typed that and the buzzer went off... LOL It is really taking forever for me to bake it tonight.

So It's around 10 pm and I try to end my day by looking at everyones blog.. HEY its a Saturday Night and I dont have a life. REALLY I dont have a life.

SO I always enjoy the fact that everytime I pull Abby's blog up a song pops up and I listen to it in the back ground as I am doing my blog or reading her posting or whatever it might be. SO tonight I started listening to the lyrics. I do that now and then Hear a song but do not listen to what the song is saying or is trying to say.

OK i know I am getting ahead of myself but maybe I am learning something from this class I am taking right now.

now seeing I have to type the song out bear with me... I still dont know how to copy and paste.
I ate the glue when I was a kid

It started out as a feeling
which grew into a hope.
which then turned into a quite though
which then turned into a quite word
and then that word grew louder and louder
til it was a battle cry
I'll come back
when you call me
No need to say good bye
Just because everything is changing
doesnt mean it never
been this way before
All you can do is to try to know
who your friends are
as you head off to the war
Pick a star on the Dark Horizon
and follow the light
You'll come back when it's over
no need to say good bye.
You'll come back when it's over
no need to say good bye.
Now we're back to the begining
It's just a feeling and no one knows yet
but just because they can't feel it too
Doesnt mean that you have to forget
Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
til they're before your eyes
You'll come back when they call you
no need to say good bye.

I know Abby has a different meaning for this song, and it just hit me some of what the words are talking about. BOY I wish I could write like this about the papers I have to write. It would make my life a lot better.. I guess it is that sometimes I understand things at different times in my life.

But I started to listen and had to re-play the song a few times to get it. I painted a picture in my mind of a war scene. this war scene was not of that of the wars we are having today but it was a war scene of loved ones that had gone before and are fight to keep us (the one here on earth) on the straight and narrow path. Protecting us, helping us, teaching us. I just got goose bumps.
I can see this scene as clear as day. maybe its that ahhh Haaa moment that Oprah always talks about. But I got it.

I know the wheels are always turning but sometimes it just takes a little more work for me to GET IT!

I just put the cheese cake on for another 15 minutes. Thats a total now of 1 hour and 15 minutes of cooking... I am thinking is it done yet.... or can I leave it alone for another 5. But like cooking if I dont do it right it wont turn out right. SO I am off to check the cheesecake and hoping for a great turn out.

Well for now......

Sometimes we all just need a little more baking, a little more time in the heat of the moments, to turn out right!!! Love, mom

Every time I hear that song it sends chills down my spine too. It's a beautiful song for sure, but it's the words that touched my Spirit. Remember all the cheesecake experimenting you did at Ricks and were constantly walking across the street to us? No wonder I gained like 50 pounds in college. No one should live across the street from you...they don't stand a chance of staying skinny...

I like the song, too, Scott. I have no doubt that lyrics like that, and the music that goes with it, come directly from above. By the way, is your car broken? How about a visit? Oh yes, it is winter now so maybe a flight?
