Happy birthday, daddy...

This year was the 20th anniversary of my father's death. Today is his birthday. I'm not sure if it's because I've been singing "Believe in Yourself," so much lately - the song I wrote the week he died - but I have really been missing him this year. It felt today like it was just yesterday that he was here.

The day my father died, I swore I heard him say:
"Beloved, don't you cry, for I'm not far away.
Just keep your honesty
The truth will set you free
And follow all your dreams of who you long to be
Cause if you believe in yourself
Then you don't need anything, or anybody else
And if you believe in your dreams
Then your dreams will come true
So believe in yourself, as I believe in you."

I had a recording session today, recording yep...you guessed it, "Believe in Yourself." Amazing session - we were done in two takes. Go figure.

It was just a weird and wonderful day. I had a great workout, drank 5 liters of water, and food was clean. Now I'm off to bed nice and early so I can get up just before 6 am and call my friend who moved to Australia.

Work is crazy busy....life is good. I'm just so grateful for everything with which God has blessed me. I continue to have faith and move forward. God takes care of the rest.
