Life and Lyrics

If you know me at all, you know that I go around singing all kinds of random songs. All the time. Well, most of the time. Consider yourself lucky if you’re not around me when I have this one particular kid’s club song stuck in my head. (I drive even myself crazy then!!) Or if you’re anything like my brothers, you wish you weren’t around me when the moon is shining. (Hey I can’t help it there’s all kinds of great moon songs ;))

Music speaks. Volumes. To me, anyway. A few phrases have been great company lately. 😀

 

And when my sun goes down, I know You’re around
Shining Your grace on me…

The sunshine was beautiful today after so many days of rain. I like the sun. I wish it’d shine a little more! I wish grace would feel a little more real.

Since by man came death
By man came also the resurrection of the dead!
For as in Adam all die…
Even so in Christ shall all be made alive!!

I thought of this after running into my old manager in Walmart last night (right after Messiah practice). I hadn’t seen her for over two years and I’ve often wondered if it would be awkward or not to see her again. (A few not-so-nice memories come to mind) She smiled and acted happy to see me and chatty. Remembering past encounters made me think of the difference between being dead in your sins and ALIVE in Christ. There is a huge difference.

Hope is rising
It’s a sunrise for the end
Hope is rising
And it’s breathing for me again

[Insert picture of sunrise. I don’t seem to have any… which means I’m either snoozing when the sun is rising or I’m driving to work with no camera]

Does strength grow in our greatest fears?

Does it? Really? People tell me that I am enduring and persevering.  And that my heart is patient. Sigh. I don’t know.

You and I met passing by
And now our spirits feel warm
… so I’ll spend my Christmas with you!

Sappy Owl City. 😀

Anyone can feel the ache
You think its more than you can take
But you’re stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining

This song popped into my head this morning… then the opening strains came on the radio just as I turned my car on to leave work. Must’ve been meant for me to hear. 😀

I know. Most of the songs sound quite similar. They help me live!  This blog post that Esta wrote last spring describes it perfectly. If you’re looking for happy cheery blog posts, well sorry. I don’t have them right now.

Back to my peanut butter apple and the room that needs cleaned and the words that are begging to come out in the trusty journal. 😀
