Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

What does it take to make life from the ashes?
How can a body burned come back to life?
In a field of death and desolation
How do you measure what living is worth?

What matters most in a heart of stone?
The bleeding center of a soul so cold
Rejection and terror is all that is known
Tell what it takes to make it on your own

What does it take to pay for a life?
What does it cost to spark a new light?
Among the graves where you silently tread
Somber bleakness cannot awaken the dead

What in the world can conquer fire?
What can douse anger and put out ire?
In your heart you feel the unquenchable heat
That from the depths of your spirit you rise up to meet

What does it take to carry one's burden?
Lift to your own shoulders another's load?
When you already struggle with your own sin
When dark is here and you don't know where to begin

What would you do for someone you love?
Would die in their place or is loving enough?
As they walk the road to anguish and pain
And you have the chance step into their place

What will you do when look in their eyes?
How many masks will fall with their the lies?
In the silence of waiting when death is so close
Bringing with it ultimately the ending choice

What does it take to convince you to speak?
At the edge of everything, would you reach out?
Say the words that matter most to those that wait to hear?
In your own voice give the answer to the crowd

What would you say if I told you a story?
Of a man who died not merely for glory
After he died death was then conquered that day
Then he rose to show how his power is great

What would you give to live with him forever?
Is anything thing of worth that you could bring?
When all we have is earthly bodies soiled and broken
Giving him our hearts as an only offering

What can I say to help you understand?
The Savior and Messiah in the body of a man
Will you bring your own soul to lay at his feet?
So you live forever in the halls of the King
