This made me die laughing. Luckily, I revived long enough to post it.

My 2 year old warms up to Anberlin…

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I’m a huge fan of Anberlin. I have their name on my license plate and I even named my daughter after the song “Adelaide.” When Lowborn came out and we watched the videos for “Stranger Ways” and “Hearing Voices”, my daughter loved those two songs. When I play them in the car, she says, “I like this one!” and wants to listen to the other when one of them is done. So funny. When she sees the pic of Anberlin in the “Hearing Voices” video, she says, “Spice Girls!” I correct her immediately of course. LOL Anyway, it warms her mommy’s heart.

LAUGH, LOVE, LIVE FREE, AND SING…

When life is in discord, praise ye the Lord.

~@Anberlin, “Paperthin Hymn”

Let’s sing praise to our God for blessing us with Anberlin and their talent over the past 12 years. We will always love you, Stephen, Joey, Deon, Christian, and Nate.

With downcast eyes…

Listening to @Anberlin all the way home from work… and I can’t hold back the tears.

Dismantled Beyond Repair

My heart is breaking right now, and my eyes are overflowing with tears. My beloved Anberlin is ending after this year. I just can’t express how much they have touched my life over the past 12 years and how much my life will never be the same without them.  I’m beyond speechless right now.

I rediscovered 30 Seconds to Mars today.  I had forgotten how much I loved them… Why did I ever let you go?

A song for Clace and Sizzy (and maybe Malec too)…

"IJSW" by Anberlin

I can’t help but say what’s on my mind 
I can’t help but say what’s on my mind 
How can you say you don’t feel the same 
When I feel the heart of a beat moving with you 
How can we sway and stare into the night 
When you say you don’t want to be mine?

One and only 
One and only 
Got to be my lady
One and only 
One and only 
Got to be my girl

How is this for true devotion? 
Give, I’ll give you all 
I’ll give you all 
Who do you need me to be? 
I’ll be someone 
I’ll be someone for you 
How is this for honesty? 
I need to hear 
I need to hear it now 
Who do you need me to be? 
I’ll be someone 
I’ll be someone for you 

I can only act on
What’s on your mind
(Tell me what’s on your mind) 
I can only act on
What you say is mine 
(I want to know)
Someone’s got to, someone’s got to, someone’s got to give in
Someone’s got to, someone’s got to, someone’s got to give up

How is this for true devotion? 
Give, I’ll give you all 
I’ll give you all 
How is this for true romance? 
I feel I pulled you down 
I pulled you down 
How is this for honesty? 
I need to hear 
I need to hear it now 
Who do you need me to be? 
I’ll be someone 
I’ll be someone for you 

One and only 
One and only 
Got to be my lady
One and only 
One and only 
Got to be my girl

How is this for true devotion? 
Give, I’ll give you all 
I’ll give you all 
How is this for true romance? 
I feel I pulled you down 
I pulled you down 
How is this for honesty? 
I need to hear 
I need to hear it now 
Who do you need me to be? 
I’ll be someone 
I’ll be someone for you

Yeah, this song has grown on me. I listened to it on repeat tonight on my way home. LOL

I don't really have a question, but I just wanted to express my happiness! I feel like Anberlin has changed so much throughout their career and a lot of people have complained, and I have to admit that sometimes I let it get to me. It's nice to find someone who still loves them, and a lot more than me, by the looks of it! I always say that no matter what they sound like, I will always love them, because they have been such a big part of my life! Thanks and keep up the devotion!

I’m glad you feel the same way as me.  Anberlin has been my favorite band for 11 years now, and I haven’t ever been disappointed in them.  Thanks for stopping by!
