I am beginning a new journey, on Instagram, to walk with you along the path of mercy and the tenderness of God.

You need this @rhiminee post in your life. Trust me.
It’s really too bad this girl is already married, they have so much in common! Both beautiful, both wear shirts buttoned right up to choking level, both cap-wearers, and she brings him food … more specifically, “simple but good” pizza (as opposed to the dreaded, complicated bad pizza). And he did want to learn a new language, why not Kyrgyzstanian… Kyrgyzstanish? And seeing him look so dang happy warms my cold, cold heart, yes it does.
I couldn’t get the link to this article to work for me (even though I RT’d it, lol) so just read the whole thing now. #fanfail Love what the Idol backup singer said about David… I remember seeing her tear up but had never heard exactly why. The Power of The Archuleta strikes again.
This @rhiminee post is a must-read too. It made me think of a convo I had with my dad yesterday. He rarely asks me about work or life, or anything, lol, but all of a sudden he blurted out: “So how is Mr. Archuleta?” Like we’re buds.
I said, “um, fine I think. He’s working on new music.”
Dad: “What kind of music does he do exactly? How would you describe it?”
Me: “He calls it ‘soulful pop’.”
Dad: “Soulful pop??”
Like I’d said ‘existential Klingon rap.’
Me: “Well, it’s pop music but he sings with a lot of soul, so it has a soulfulness to it.”
Dad: “Can you hum me a few bars?”
I contemplated humiliating myself by belting out Elevator but reconsidered.
Me: “He writes his own songs but you’ve probably heard the songs he covers… do you know Peter Gabriel’s ‘Don’t Give Up’?”
Me: “Everybody Hurts by REM?”
Me: “The U2 song Pride?”
My dad only listens to classical and opera, so I finally saw the futility of listing every song on BEGIN… Oh wait, he also likes Spanish music.
Me: “He speaks Spanish so he’s written some really good Spanish songs too.”
Dad: “Spanish? Oh, that’s nice.”
My dad likes to tease us a lot so it took me a while to realize what he was doing. He was trying to understand something that he knows is really important to me…the music I love.
Yet another special moment brought to me by David Archuleta.
