End of the Beginning . NaBloPoMo

I probably ought to save this post for the end of the month when it will be the end of posts about beginnings, but I don't want to forget about it, so it comes at the beginning of beginnings instead of a the end =)  Coincidentally (or perhaps not?) a friend of mine posted this song on their Facebook page this morning and I've been thinking about it ever since.  The lyrics are powerful, and compliment what I posted yesterday.  This version, with David Phelps singing, has subtitles so you can really consider the words as well as the music.

End of the Beginning

Interestingly enough, I once overheard a conversation in an airport waiting area that was very similar to the one recorded in this song.  It took place in Boston's Logan Airport between two college-aged guys.  One was telling the other about this "great book" he'd been reading:  the Bible.  "It has everything you want in a good story," he said:  murder, mayhem, mystery, love, know, all the good stuff!"  The other guy didn't know how to respond to this.  He kept saying "The Bible?"  And the first guy would say "I know!  I couldn't believe it either!"  Truth is, of course, that all that stuff is in the Bible, but there is so much more.  So. Much. More.  And it is the more--the end of the beginning--that David Phelps sings about...and that makes all the difference in the world.
