Hey everyone!! Sorry i haven't posted in a while... But now i am going to tell you a story!! :)

Yesterday was Thursday. (DUH!!)
I went with Anna to TC at about 1:30 and we went shopping, and we went to the Mall.
After that, we went to Goodwill, and after that we went to eat.... CHINESE FOOD!! :) (My favorite!!)
And then we went on to Church. Well, we were the first ones to get there!! And it was cold outside. So we got into the old Church Building and i turned the heat on. Well, the furnace never works for me, so it just blew out cold air.
We watched a Movie for Church, because Pastor wasn't here. It was VERY good!! It is called "Return of the Daughters". I am reading the book which has a different name "So Much More".
After that, Jaina came and wanted me to play the piano for her. I told her that i would as soon as people moved to the other building so that i didn't have so much of an audience. Then Bethany Millen came up to me and wanted my help with the Violin. So i helped her with that. And after i helped her, almost everybody was gone, so i called Jaina and played the Piano for her. And then Marty comes in and askes to talk to me. (ODD!! Marty never does that!!) So i get up and he starts walking away.( He always talkes to me where i am!!) So i tell him:
"Marty, you are being suspicious.... What do you want to talk to me about??"
Marty replys: "It's about Saturday"
Well that was normal at least. Saturday i wanted to have Mike and Becky and the Kids and Marty and Rachel over for dinner. So i follow him to the other building. And as soon as i walk in the door, everybody starts singing Happy Birthday to me. I was So Shocked!! I had never had a suprize Birthday Party before in my life!!
Anna and Hannah T had aranged the whole thing and made the cake. (Thank you Anna and Hannah!!) My Friends were there, except Bethany and Lydia, my Family, (Part of them) i was totaly blessed!! All of everyone was singing Happy Birthday to me, Except Ken Templeton.......He was singing his own version...
"Happy Birthday to you!! Happy Birthday to you!! Happy Birthday dear BUZZARD!! Happy Birthday to you!!"
Well, that is my Story. Hope you enjoyed it!!


"Go down, Death." By James Weldon Johnson

Weep not, weep not,
She is not dead;
She's resting in the bosom of Jesus.
Heart-broken husband--weep no more;
Grief-stricken son--weep no more;
Left-lonesome daughter --weep no more;
She only just gone home.

Day before yesterday morning,
God was looking down from his great, high heaven,
Looking down on all his children,
And his eye fell on Sister Caroline,
Tossing on her bed of pain.
And God's big heart was touched with pity,
With the everlasting pity.

And God sat back on his throne,
And he commanded that tall, bright angel standing at his right hand:
Call me Death!
And that tall, bright angel cried in a voice
That broke like a clap of thunder:
Call Death!--Call Death!
And the echo sounded down the streets of heaven
Till it reached away back to that shadowy place,
Where Death waits with his pale, white horses.

And Death heard the summons,
And he leaped on his fastest horse,
Pale as a sheet in the moonlight.
Up the golden street Death galloped,
And the hooves of his horses struck fire from the gold,
But they didn't make no sound.
Up Death rode to the Great White Throne,
And waited for God's command.

And God said: Go down, Death, go down,
Go down to Savannah, Georgia,
Down in Yamacraw,
And find Sister Caroline.
She's borne the burden and heat of the day,
She's labored long in my vineyard,
And she's tired--
She's weary--
Go down, Death, and bring her to me.

And Death didn't say a word,
But he loosed the reins on his pale, white horse,
And he clamped the spurs to his bloodless sides,
And out and down he rode,
Through heaven's pearly gates,
Past suns and moons and stars;
on Death rode,
Leaving the lightning's flash behind;
Straight down he came.

While we were watching round her bed,
She turned her eyes and looked away,
She saw what we couldn't see;
She saw Old Death. She saw Old Death
Coming like a falling star.
But Death didn't frighten Sister Caroline;
He looked to her like a welcome friend.
And she whispered to us: I'm going home,
And she smiled and closed her eyes.

And Death took her up like a baby,
And she lay in his icy arms,
But she didn't feel no chill.
And death began to ride again--
Up beyond the evening star,
Into the glittering light of glory,
On to the Great White Throne.
And there he laid Sister Caroline
On the loving breast of Jesus.

And Jesus took his own hand and wiped away her tears,
And he smoothed the furrows from her face,
And the angels sang a little song,
And Jesus rocked her in his arms,
And kept a-saying: Take your rest,
Take your rest.

Weep not--weep not,
She is not dead;
She's resting in the bosom of Jesus.
