ALBUM: Amazing God 'n' Camp
Song Story: THE MUSIC
I really don't know where the weird music "in my head" came from, except to say "from God." I was going for a sound that sounded like long-legged spiders dropping down from a wall. The growly noise that starts the song is a loop I just "found" in Garageband (see also my blog dianadeegarageband). Claxton in my 2nd professional studio grabbed his drumsticks and started creating all those weird-er percussion sounds to match the mood!
Sadly... amusingly... this song is a TRUE story. After leaving ALIVE 2009 and driving several hundred miles to the CREATION 2009 music festival, sure enough---a bunch of child's-hand-size white spiders hopped out of my tent case. And I did pray that I had not introduced a new species to the Pennsylvania mountains. However, after having gone to CREATION music festivals for ten years, the year 2010 was the first year I saw albino spiders at my Pennsylvania campsite. As the song says, I sure hope Pennsylvania already had .......!

It surely was not my intent that when I packed my camping tent,
I packed in some albino spiders too!
I drove them for 500 miles, all tucked in my Ohio pile of
gear on my way to my new camp site.
I opened my packed tent case..... Out FIVE albino spiders came.....
I sure was not about to chase them through
Pennsylvania hills and drive them home to Ohio!
I sure hope Pennsylvania had albino spiders before I made
this mistake in taking five to their country side.
God, please forgive mistakes I made and stop any hurt I
made that day. I can't stop spiders, but You can stop the hurt.
God, I sometimes hurt Your heart. I ask “Forgive me” and You do.
But I beg you to heal any hurt I made...
I'm sorry, God, please stop hurt I caused You!
God, I sometimes hurt people. I ask “Forgive me” and they do.
But I beg You to heal any hurt I made...
I'm sorry, God, please stop hurt I caused people!
Romans 7 sure describes me. I keep doing things I don't mean to do.
God, heal the hurt I've caused, I pray! Hurt to YOU, hurt to others,
to Your World! Please heal the hurts I've made!
REFERENCES:God's Word includes these two encouraging passages: From Hebrews 4:16, New KJV:
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. “
From 2nd Corinthians 12: 9... “And He [Jesus] said ...'My grace is sufficient for thee:
for My strength is made perfect in weakness. “
