That’s what I’d tell you if you asked, “how are you?”.
Life seems to be piling higher and deeper – McBaby comes in less than 2 months, Dad started chemo and is experiencing severe side effects, and the house is a mess because I can’t seem to pull it together. My thoughts are all over the place and I’m just trying to keep them from wandering too far. Not much I can do but wait, pray, and listen to some good music.
[Healing Begins – Tenth Avenue North]
Oh man, this song gets me every time. It is responsible for bringing on the tears after several weeks of eye dryness.
[You Never Let Go – Matt Redman]
Thankful for a song that I can close my eyes and just feel a big hug. I’m definitely feeling the “storm and rain” part of the lyrics.
[All My Fountains – Chris Tomlin & Passion Band]
I can’t describe why I love this song so much. It makes me happy. I think it’s the clapping.
[Beautiful Things – Gungor]
This song is really deep and powerful. If you’re only going to listen to one of these songs, this is the one. It’s all about how God redeems every situation. Nothing is too messy or too ugly for God to make something beautiful. What a different perspective!
So, for now I’ll just be sanding the crap out of the dresser for the nursery (yes, I said a “bad word” – I’m all about being honest about how I’m feeling). Whether or not you’re a praying person, would you pray for my dad and would you pray for Keith and I as we are so far away?
Linking up to Friday Favorites because I don’t know what I’d do without these songs!!
