Wow - life

Life is crazy, wonderful, up and down, spinning out of control and not moving at all.

There's so much going on with me, with my family, and yet it feels like nothing is going on sometimes. I seem to want to fill every opening and yet, also, would like to sit in a lounge chair doing nothing. Which isn't really possible.

I am thankful for friends who always make me smile, who fill me up, who understand me, even those who maybe who don't understand me, but who accept me anyway. I am grateful for a husband who is always, always by my side and on my side. Even when I'm wrong. Which, he will admit, isn't much. (*just kidding honey*) I am in awe of my children's hearts, their beauty and talent. While I may be strict, I recognise the goodness in their hearts and I am so appreciative.

I am blessed in so many ways.

Lately, I have two songs that have affected me immensely, so I wanted to share some lyrics. I have always listened to lyrics--the songs that touch me the most, really say something. It is more than a good beat, it is a message.

There's no such thing as perfect people
There's no such thing as a perfect life
So come as you are, broken and scarred
Lift up your heart
And be amazed and be changed by a perfect God
(Perfect People by Natalie Grant)


But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!"
The voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth
(Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns)
