and those who love the adventure of loving.”

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6djej1NLk4&ob=av2e - God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You, - Alabama, 1999


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%28God_Must_Have_Spent%29_A_Little_More_Time_on_You

"(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 Son of Other Parents, Joe Mansfield (Stanton College Prep School, FL - '02) of TX - 01/03/18:

Today I found out the the Prophet Thomas S. Monson had passed away. He will be missed. I wanted to share a quote from him that I really love.
 
“God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity in the cloud, the oil in the earth. He left the rivers unbridged and the forests unfelled and the cities unbuilt. God gives to man the challenge of raw materials, not the ease of finished things. He leaves the pictures unpainted and the music unsung and the problems unsolved, that man might know the joys and glories of creation.”

- Thomas S. Monson
(21 Aug 1927 - 02 Jan 2018)


God be with you, Brother Monson, and thank you for your service.

   Thanks so much, Joe!

http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-8185/why-you-need-to-stop-checking-your-phone-all-the-time.html

   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 www.ajokeaday.com - 01/03/17:

Eight-year-old Sally brought her report card home from school. Her marks were good…mostly A’s and a couple of B’s.

However, her teacher had written across the bottom, "Sally is a smart little girl, but she has one problem. She talks too much in school. I have an idea I am going to try which I think may break her of the habit."

Sally’s dad signed her report card, putting a note on the back, "Please let me know if your idea works on Sally, because I would like to try it out on her mother."

(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
You
On you
A little more time on you.
