Sing like no one is listening

Even though sometimes I get tired of driving the same route back and forth to Rolla everyday (usually twice) I do look forward to singing loudly in my car with no one to hear. Well unless it’s warm outside and I roll down the windows…lol.

Or I sing Worship songs for God to hear. :)

I always listen to the same songs over and over, and yes I’m stuck in the ’90’s. But honestly I don’t care, because that’s what I like. I love “slow jams” and just other random songs from the 90’s.
A couple that have been playing over and over are…

Crash Into Me by DMB—My favorite song right now.

You’ve got your ball,
You’ve got your chain
Tied to me tight, tie me up again.
Who’s got their claws
In you my friend?
Into your heart I’ll beat again
Sweet like candy to my soul
Sweet you rock,
And sweet you roll
Lost for you, I’m so lost for you

Oh, and you come crash into me
And I come into you
And I come into you
In a boy’s dream
In a boy’s dream

Touch your lips just so I know
In your eyes, love, it glows so
I’m bare-boned and crazy… for you.

Oh, and you come crash into me
Baby, and I come into you
In a boy’s dream
In a boy’s dream

And if I’ve gone overboard
Then I’m begging you
To forgive me
In my haste
When I’m holding you so girl,
Close to me

Oh and you come crash into me, yeah
Baby, and I come into you
Hike up your skirt a little more
And show the world to me
Hike up your skirt a little more
And show your world to me
In a boy’s dream
In a boy’s dream

Oh, I watch you there
Through the window
And I stare at you
You wear nothing, but you
Wear it so well
Tied up and twisted,
The way I’d like to be
For you, for me, come crash into me, baby
Come crash into me, yeah

Crash into me…
Crash into me…
Crash into me…

You know, I’m the king of the castle,
And you’re the dirty rascal, crash into me.
Please crash into me, baby…

Oh, no no no…
I see the wave come and crash into me.
I See the wave come and crash into me.
Crash into me.


I Wanna Make Love To You by Boyz II Men — An awesome remix to “I’ll Make Love To You”

Close your eyes
And tell me what dreams run
through your head (of you
and me me and you)
I’ve got some of my own
that I want to share
Here and now babe
Don’t say a word (10, 9)
I’m like a rocket on a rise (8, 7)
I’m ready to explode (6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1)
Take control of my love
and feel the passion
‘Cause I will do anything,
girl you need only ask it

I wanna make love to you
Holding you all night long
I wanna make love to you
And I will not let go
‘Till you tell me to
I wanna make love to you
Holding you all night long
I wanna make love to you
And I will not let go
‘Till you tell me to

Girl relax
Let me near your body so I
can do the things, oh
I’m gonna concentrate on you
That’s all I wanna do
Are you ready, it’s gonna be a long night
Throw your clothes on the floor
‘Cause I took mine off at the door
So hit the lights babe and explore
Girl when you ask me
inside, you don’t have to
ask anymore


Baby tonight is your night
And I will do you right
Just make a wish on your night
Anything that you ask me
I will give you the love of your life

So incase you ever see me driving and it looks like
I’m talking to someone in my backseat or to myself,
I’m really singing ;)

Are you bored with random facts yet?

First 10, then 20

…and now I have 30 random facts posted about me.

1) I’m horrible at swallowing pills (I think because I’m scared of choking). I have recently improved because I have to swallow acid reflux meds.
2) The most money/biggest prize I’ve ever won is $500 in a Dairy Queen picture contest. It took some effort though. Oh and I had to split the money with Ryan. lol
3) I’ve never broken a bone… unless you count two of my toes that I think I broke when I ran into a wall. Yes I ran into a wall while walking in my house in the dark (many years ago).
4) I earned 100% on my driver’s test.
5) Sometimes it looks like I am winking at you, but I’m not doing it on purpose unless your name is Ryan Cannon Ray. I really just blink my left eye randomly & unknowingly. Especially when I’m tired (observations credited to Nour Sadek).
6) I don’t eat foods that have sodium nitrite in them (bacon, hot dogs, etc). I made this decision after first hearing about it in both biology and chemistry around the same time. It is used as a preservative in processed meat and is a carcinogen. Google it.
7) My comfort zone is very small. =(
8) If it is true that twins skip generations, I may have twins because my mom is a twin and she has twin cousins. Heeelllpppp me if they’re 9 lbs. lol.
9) I can name the countries of Central America in order from north to south very quickly. I learned that from Mrs. E and I have no idea why I remembered it.
10) I usually don’t like surprises! I really don’t like unwrapping gifts.

God Story

This is a random post about a short story that happened about 2-3 years ago. I just thought it’d be fun to write down.

I began attending youth group at the First Church of God during the fall of 2005.
I believe at this point I had been going for at least several months, maybe longer. I can’t remember when it was exactly. One Wednesday night I was getting ready to go to youth group and I decided to pray by myself beforehand. I went into my room, shut the door, and prayed about the night ahead of me. That was the first time I had ever done that specifically and strangely enough I remember that short moment with God quite clearly.

That night at youth group, just like every week, someone read a verse from the Bible. Just a random verse that someone would choose I suppose.

Guess what the Scripture was that night?

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6 (NIV)

I knew that was not a coincidence. I still love thinking about this simple, yet powerful “God story.”
