About: Patriotism in the South

I know I posted this on my Scripture blog, but I was listening to the radio today and this song came on... made me want to repost this on this blog now.

Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John
C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City , Georgia
,just south of Atlanta , on June 11, 2009 . The Henry County Police
Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough ,
Georgia .. A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to
be taken and the approximate time.

Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects
honor and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known
that there are many places in this land where people still recognize
the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one
of those graceful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that
day's remarkable and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish
to have some of your faith in people restored.

Please share widely.

Tomorrow's a big day for me...

So... basically, that I'll pass ;)

About: My Guitar :)

I've been practicing my guitar lately like a madwoman... :)

A Few facts I've learned and things I'm working on~

~I'm hoping to be ready in time for Barberville...
~Working on trying to finish writing a song based off Psalm 18.
~Thinking about learning more chords... :*) I only know 8 right now (self-taught so far)
~I found that I don't think I'll ever be able to play barre chords... my fingers are too small. *ouch*
~I'm looking into getting a capo of my own... borrowing Dad's right now.
~I need more picks... I loose mine like crazy! o.O
~Just enjoying sitting and playing songs I already know and learning new ones.

Not that you needed to know any of that... Just what I was thinking as I sat down to blog :D

About: Someone's Birthday Today

Thirty-four years ago today, someone very dear to my heart was born.
I would love to wish this special someone a splendid birthday...
I would love to call this person and sing it myself...
In fact, I'd love to fly out and see this person to sing myself...

But I can't.

You see, today is my dearly beloved brother's birthday.
He's in Heaven now... and obviously, I can't fly out to see him anymore. *sigh*

Today was a day of happiness 2 years ago...
Now it's just a sad reminder that our Isaac isn't here anymore to celebrate his special day.

Isaac did so much with his life.
I wish I could tell you every major point in his life.
But right now, I don't feel eloquent speech is coming to my mind.

So... simply put, I wish my brother, Isaac Nathaniel Goodwin, a very happy birthday :)
Even though I don't think birthdays are celebrated in Heaven... o.O

Isaac and I in San Francisco, June 2006.

About: My Weird Friends... :P


About: God, My Savior!

Oh, what beautiful titles and names for one who loves me so much!


That the all powerful, Creator of Heaven and Earth would love me so to call me one of His beloved children. That He sent Jesus to take my punishment for my sins... מדהים, unglaublich, incroyable, increíble, INCREDIBLE!

People know me as many things... eccentric, outgoing, spontaneous. However; what I would absolutely love for people to think of as they think of me is my love for, adoration, and seeking to serve our Lord. God gave His Son for me, He took my blame so I don't have to... can't I try to show my gratefulness?

Oh wretch that I am! That I live my life for me. That I don't seek His will in every single aspect of my life!

Amazing isn't it how God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness?!

God is good... THAT my soul know very well!
