Fool For You by Nichole Nordeman

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.25.2008

Some of the worship scenes in book 2 of my Sushi series were inspired by this song. Trish is torn between her desire for abandoned worship and the censure (real or perceived) of others around her, something I’ve struggled with myself. Trish is braver than I am, though. It was fun to write these scenes.

Fool For You
By Nichole Nordeman

There are times when faith and common sense do not align,
when hardcore evidence of you is hard to find.
I am silenced in the face of argumentative debate,
And it's a long hill, it's a lonely climb.

’Cause they want proof,
They want proof of all these mysteries I claim,
’Cause only fools would want to chant a dead man's name.
Maybe it's true. Yeah, but
I would be a fool for you
all because you asked me to.
A simpleton who's seeming naive,
I do believe You came and
made Yourself a fool for me.

I admit that in my darkest hours I've asked what if,
What if we created some kind of man-made faith like this,
Out of good intention or emotional invention,
and after life is through there will be no You.

’Cause they want proof of all these miracles I claim,
’Cause only fools believe that men can walk on waves.
Maybe it's true. Yeah, but
I would be a fool for you
all because you asked me to.
A simpleton who's seeming naive,
I do believe You came and
made Yourself a fool for me.

Unaware of popularity,
and unconcerned with dignity,
You made me free.
That's proof enough for me.

I would be a fool for You,
Only if You asked me to.
A simpleton who's only thinking of the cause of love.

I will speak Jesus name,
and if that makes me crazy,
they can call me crazed.
I'm happy to be seemingly naïve,
I do believe You came and
made Yourself a fool for me.

  1. I think many of us experience the same struggle as you, Camy. Sometimes it seems that the only time hands are raised is to clap for a performance! I'm usually on stage playing the piano, but am free to worship however I feel led when we go to something accapella. However, I'm usually thinking, "People are watching me; what will they think?!"

    My only comment is that if we can't worship with abandonment here, whatever will we do in Heaven? So thank you for your thoughts and the words of that beautiful song, Camy.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
