The Good Life


Here’s a bonus for you this week.  This is a classic song by Audio Adrenaline off their album Underdog.  Here you go, folks, “The Good Life”.

[vs. 1]

I’ve watched my dreams all fade away and blister in the sun

Everything I’ve ever had is unraveled and undone

I’ve set upon a worthless stack of my ambitious plans

And the people that I’ve loved the most have turned their backs and ran


This is the Good Life

I’ve lost everything I could ever want and ever dream of

This is the Good Life

I’ve found everything I could ever need here in Your arms


Loneliness has left me searching for someone to love.

Poverty has changed my view of what true riches are.

Sorrow’s opened up my eyes to see what real joy is.

Pain had been the catalyst to my heart’s happiness.



What good would it be if you had everything, but you wouldn’t have the only thing you need?

My family and I are missionaries in Costa Rica. Before that we lived in Mexico and before that we came from Minnesota. I am a teacher, an artist, a "journaler", a quilter, a cooker, a baker, a hostess, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I like reading and watching movies (ehem, and quoting movie lines). I would love to be in a Jane Austin movie but I don't know how to ballroom dance or play Whist.
