FAITH MY EYES

As I survey the ground for ants looking for a place to sit and read I'm reminded of the streets of my hometown.
How they're much like this concrete that's warm beneath my feet And how I'm all wrapped up in my mother's face
With a touch of my father just up around the eyes
And the sound of my brother's laugh But more wrapped up in what binds our ever distant lives.
But if I must goThings I trust will be better off without me But I don't want to know Life is better off a mystery
So keep'em coming these lines on the road And keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load
And keep me guessing with these blessings in disguise And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes
Hometown weather is on TV I imagine the lives of the people living there
And I'm curious if they imagine me
Cause they just wanna leave; I wish that I could stay
And to visit places from my past But only for an hour or so
Which is long enough to smell the air To tell the tale and find the door
But I get turned around
I mistake some happiness for blessingBut I'm blessed as the poor
Still I judge success by how I'm dressing
So I'll sing a song of my hometown I'll breathe the air and walk the streets
Maybe find a place to sit and read
And the ants are welcome company
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes. And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes. "

So I have been in a Buffalo moody lately. Today I was listening to a song by Caedmon's Call (Faith My Eyes). This song reminds me of Buffalo and Baltimore. I am reminded that my family (everyone that has ever impacted my life) goes with me no matter where my feet lead me. So I put together the pictures and the song. I have some photos from Buffalo and some from Baltimore... I hope you enjoy it! Please let the song play and enjoy the PHOTOS!!!
Thanks for reading

Justin, so very perfect, I could not listen to Alan Jackson, "Remember When" on the way home, still cry when that comes on, this is a very close second.
