The preacher, the man, my friend...Grandpa

I thought I'd reminisce a little this morning.  

Sure miss grandpa who passed Sunday a week and a day ago.  What a special, unique guy!!!   Pancakes...he could make some pancakes now.  Super thin and just a little crispy on the outside.

And love...he had some love for everyone.  Hugs that were genuine and tight, so you really knew how much he meant it.   

I think he was probably the last of the true believers.  You know the dedicated kind of believer who doesn't need to entertain any other belief system. Sure,  that made him simple, but he was simple by choice...choosing to believe in a personal relationship with God as he understood him.  And it was that unique and very special relationship that shaped his character and life for 93 years. 

You could believe in God it seemed a little easier when you were around him, I think.  Not because of what he preached, but because of how full his own life seemed to be, and rich the surroundings of other people seemed to make him.   

After all, we love others because the love of God is in us.  If that is the measure of a man and  his spiritual condition, then grandpa was in great shape.   I never knew anyone who took so much joy from knowing and loving others.  

There are people who touch your life while they live.  And then there are those whose death creates the spirit of their life in you.  For me, that's evidence eternal.  

The greatness of his life is the impact he left on all of us.   What a man...what a friend...what a grandpa!!!

Friday, March 2, 2012 is for New Artists is a fun website where people can send the most lyrically meaningful part of a song to convey a message.

A song text, or song message, is like an e-card with a few major exceptions that puts it into its own category.  A Song Message is not designed to be emailed.  It is a small lyric video clip designed to be sent from mobile device to mobile device as a text message.  There are still a few kinks and quirks to work out, but the system and method works really well, especially on Android and iPhones and over 200 other handheld devices.  

We create song text messages using popular songs from every musical genre.  In the future, however, we see it becoming a valuable way for NEW ARTISTS to promote their own music, using mobile texting technology and our unique patent pending service.  Each song text sent to a mobile recipient can be linked to the artist's iTunes account or website.

Currently, we have over 450 popular song texts on site.  Reasons to send one are similar to why you would send a card through the mail or an e-card through an email.  You can search through our list of song texts to find the song whose message says what you want to convey, then text it onto your friend's mobile phone to say, Happy Birthday, I Love You, I Miss You, and anything else you can find the right song for. 

Be sure to check it out and text a Song Message to a friend sometime throughout the day.  It'll make 'em smile!!!
