Beautiful Song

QUIERO CANTAR

Quiero cantar una linda cancion
de un hombre que me transformo.
Quiero cantar una linda cancion
de Aquel que mi vida cambio.

ES MI AMIGO JESUS
ES MI AMIGO JESUS
EL ES DIOS, EL ES REY,
ES AMOR Y VERDAD.
SOLO EN EL ENCONTRE
LA PAZ QUE BUSQUE,
SOLO EN EL ENCONTRE
LA FELICIDAD.

Translated:

I want to sing a beautiful song
of a man who transformed me.
I want to sing a beautiful song
of the one who changed my life.

HE IS MY FRIEND JESUS
IS MY FRIEND JESUS
HE IS GOD, HE IS KING,
HE IS LOVE AND TRUTH.
ONLY IN HIM DO I FIND THE PEACE THAT I LOOK FOR,
ONLY IN HIM DO I FIND HAPPINESS.


Funny. I started this post before work while I was thinking about my brother. He's going to go on a mission trip to Alaska this summer and just getting to the "want to go on a mission trip" phase of his life was so major I can't even think of how to put it here. (Yet.) And, the song above is the first song I learned on the mission field nearly 18 years ago. (Ask me and I'll sing it for ya sometime.)

So I was thinking of this song because last night The Fig and I were talking about when was the trip, how much money he needed for the plane ticket -- $490 -- who else might be going, etc. What's maybe the coolest thing about this trip is that it's to a church that was planted by someone we grew up with. The same someone who gave us the hardest time possible about going on mission trips as teenagers/college students. (Please don't try to tell me God doesn't have a sense of humor.)

It was time to work and I saved off the song lyrics and knew I'd get back to it this evening. When I was home for an hour or so, The Fig came by with something interesting in his pocket. It seems his birthday card from our Auntie had just arrived, as it had been accidentally misdirected when she mailed it in time for his birthday in mid-December. Her dad, our grandpa, has been gone for nearly 10 years, and they both miss him a LOT. The birthday card contained a note that said, "I was talking to Grandpa, and he said to give you this." It was a check for $500.
