01/04/15 - NNHS Newsletter - God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You

“There are two sorts of romantics: those who love,
and those who love the adventure of loving.”

- Lesley Blanch
 (06 June 1904 - 07 May 2007)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

    What a great song!

BONUS #1 - - God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You - 'N Sync, 1998

BONUS #2 - - God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You, - Alabama, 1999


"(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time On You" is the sixth and final single released from 'N Sync's self-titled debut album. While the previous singles were released in Europe, this one was not, and subsequently only charted in Australia and the US, reaching #46 and #8 respectively. The single included a live version of Christopher Cross song "Sailing", as well as a limited edition postcard. Some versions of the single included the track's video.

The video was directed by Lionel C. Martin.[3] The video shows the band performing around one single mike, while showing footage of a mother and child, from birth right up to old age, including childhood memories, having grandchildren and getting married. All the footage of the mother and child is in black and white, whereas the footage of Nsync is in full colour...

In 1999, country music band Alabama recorded the song, and released it as a single from their second studio album.[2] This version peaked at number three on the Billboard country singles charts and at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was Alabama's final Top Ten hit on the country charts, as well as the only country chart entry for 'N Sync.[2] The song was later included as the B-side to Alabama's next single, "Small Stuff."[2]

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 12/28/14:

“I will tell you how I feel on a Sabbath morning. I realize this is a day set apart to worship Almighty God: now I ought to worship God myself, and I ought to look after my family and discover whether they are engaged in the same thing or not. For we are commanded to keep holy the Sabbath day and to rest from all our labors, as God did when He created the earth upon which we dwell.

He has given us six days to attend to the various labors and duties of life, and if we [undertake] to keep the Sabbath, let us do it acceptably to God our Father, dedicating ourselves to him at least, for that day, and placing our feelings and affections upon him.”

    Thanks so much, Daniel!

  You live what you do.

      ABSOLUTELY! Thanks, Jim!


From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/03/15 - "Trouble Free?"


AMEN! Thank you, Susan!


    From My Daughter-in-Law, Laura Adams Harty (Cardston HS, Alberta - '95) of LA - 01/03/15:

  This made me laugh so hard... I imagine if I had a cat I might get this look every now and again... Lol

     Thanks, Laura! I can certainly identify with this. At the height of my illness I chanced by a mirror and screamed at the dreadful apparition myself!


From My Friend, Debbie, of NC - 01/03/15

     Thanks, Debbie! What a great resolution!

From My Friend, Hannah, of NC - 01/03/15 - "Why You Need To Stop Checking Your Phone All The Time":

   Thank you so much, Hannah! This has become a personal peeve of mine in recent months; however, being a grammar freak, I must admit it pales in terms of what this error in the fourth paragraph - which regrettably seems to have become almost universally accepted in recent years - does to me:

"There’s a heap of people....."

   ARGHHH! Whatever happened to the very nice plural contraction, "there're?!?" Would people really say, "There is a heap of people...?!?"

   Oh, the humanity! What would our splendid English teachers have to say about this degeneration of American society?!?

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 12/22/14 - "Modern Times (#11 in a series of 30)":
  How sad!   

     INDEED! Thanks, George!

(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You

Recorded by 'N Sync, 1998

Recorded by Alabama, 1999

Can this be true? Tell me, can this be real?
How can I put into words what I feel?
My life was complete, I thought I was whole
Why do I feel like I'm losing control?
I never thought that love could feel like this
Then you changed my world with just one kiss
How can it be that right here with me
There's an angel? It's a miracle

Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep
When I look into your eyes, I know that it's true
God must have spent a little more time on you
(A little more time....I'm sure he did....yes he did, babe...)

In all of creation, all things great and small
You are the one that surpasses them all
More precious than any diamond or pearl
They broke the mold when you came in this world
And I'm trying hard to figure out...just how I ever did without
The warmth of your smile, the heart of a child
That's deep inside, it leaves me purified

Your love is like a river, peaceful and deep
Your soul is like a secret that I never could keep
When I look into your eyes, I know that it's true
God must have spent a little more time on you

God must have spent a little more time on you
On you
A little more time on you.
