I know that there’s a war going on. I hear the constant political bickering. I feel the weight of the rising gas prices. I, too, wonder about our future in light of rogue nations and their nuclear armament. So many, many problems.

However – this video has got to be up near the top of the list of human atrocities.

My sweet Lord, make it stop!

I know a lot of things differ according to a person’s taste but that song/video is objectively bad. You know it is, Sir Paul… and you were supposed to be the last Beatle with talent.

If you think that song is terrible nod your head.

Last week, my good friend Aaron Svenby told me about a worship band from a church in California known as Bethel Church that was quite fantastic. I didn’t get a chance to check it out right then but a couple of days later Neil Miller showed me the following video on YouTube and it turned out to be the same group.

I can’t get over how good the song and how much I love it. I really do. And just to show how great I think the song is, the first three people who comment that they want it, I’ll gift them the song from iTunes. I like it that much.

I’m sitting here on a couch next to my long-lost friend Pete. You see, Pete and I lived on the same floor in college (actually, I lived on the same floor for four years and Pete just lived there for only one year. Traitor.). There was a special bond that grew during that year, one that couldn’t be broken by time or distance though that’s exactly what we faced.

Let me tell you a little about dear Pete. He’s 27 28, he’s married to a lovely lady named Marie and has two kids, Chandler and Addy. They live in Tulsa. Which is not near Houston.

Pete’s real name is Realto. Reall(t)y.

I haven’t seen Pete in two years.

Pete looks exactly the same as he did two years ago.

Pete asked me to play guitar at his wedding two years ago. That was the last time I saw him. Another guitarist and I practiced for the wedding but at the last minute he backed out. So I found my friend Charles Hofer to save the day. We met and rehearsed the morning of the wedding and I think Pete and Marie were pleased with how it turned out. I don’t think I ever told Pete that story. Sorry, buddy.

Pete is diehard OU fan though he really studied at and graduated from ORU (Traitor).

Pete is deathly afraid of/vehemently hates cashews.

Pete is here in Houston for work. Or so he claims.

The Houston Rockets have now won 19 games in a row.

OU’s basketball team haven’t won 19 games in a row.

Pete once tried to teach me how to drive a car with manual transmission.

I promised Pete that during my time at ORU I would attend at least one ORU sporting event.

I ultimately broke that promise.

Pete, our floor chaplain, Jon and I would occasionally have a night during a semester where we’d spend the night in someone’s room and talk and laugh and do other manly things. We may or may not have called it a “sleep-over.”

I once hid cashews on Pete’s pillow before he went to bed. He didn’t like that.

I don’t remember what he did in return but I somewhat remember a ton of papers scattered all over my room.

I may have then spread shaving cream all over his room.

All that to say, I’ve missed Pete and it’s good to see him again. It’s midnight but he’s hungry so we’re going out to eat.
