Just in time for Christmas toys

Have you heard Sara Grove's song about Toy Packaging? It's this beautiful, lilting song, but when you listen to the words, I'm sure you'll relate. You can download the MP3 at INO Records By the way..I have something in common with Sara. We both graduated from Evangel University. Her Dad (Dwight Colbaugh) was our campus pastor. Sara was 2 years behind me, and as far as I know, we never met.

Sara Groves - Toy Packaging
From the album O Holy Night

Nothing makes me lose my cool like
Toy packaging
Ask the kids to leave the room for
Toy packaging
I have no choice the money's spent
I've worked for hours to make a dent
I guess it's anger management
Toy packaging

Nothing makes me lose my cool like
Toy packaging
Ask the kids please leave the room it's time for
Toy packaging
I'm drawing up a battle plan
to extricate this robot man
My self-esteem is in the can
Toy packaging

In the old days you could hold a box and shake it
And hear the pieces rattling around
My eyes tear up with these grommets, tape and twisty ties
Remembering their beautiful sound

Toy Packaging
I love Toy Packaging
(Mom! Honey!)

Nothing makes me lose my cool like toy packaging
Kids you really need to leave the room, mom's opening toy packaging
I'm sorry you have to see this sight
You must be brave, no please don't cry
I promise it will be alright
I hope to have it by tonight
Nevermind this dynamite
Toy packaging

and you have something in common w/ my pastor's wife! she went to evangel too - way back in the early 70s!! then she married our pastor (before he was a pastor) & "became" Baptist! I drive by Evangel all the time (we go to Springfield to shop since it's one of the closest cities to us)....I don't know if I knew you'd gone there....or if I'd just forgotten. How neat though :)
