Cedar’s Song

I watched the birth video.  I watched it mainly because I wanted to know what song heralded the arrival of Cedar Olivia.  It was “On Your Wings” by Iron and Wine.  Some of the lyrics are perfect for a new arrival: 

How we rise when we’re born
like the ravens in the corn
on their wings, on our knees
crawling careless from the sea

God, give us love in the time that we have.

I’ve always fancied the word “doppelganger”

My husband seems to have several look-a-likes. 

For the longest time, we picked on him because he looks like David Phelps.  Scott HATES southern gospel music.  Passionate dislike.  He cut his curls off once, I’m certain, because I posted a Phelps picture on facebook and tagged him.  Some of our friends really thought it was Scott.   

Now, he has a more appropriate twin.  Check this comparison: 


This one is Sam Beam.  We’re lately loving Iron and Wine so I felt safe to post this one.  Hopefully, he won’t cut his hair in response.  On the other hand, hopefully he won’t grow a beard that long either!  On an interesting note, they were, in fact, born the same year in the same state.  Spooky, huh?  Yeah, not really.  But they could have been classmates.
