Our Anniversary!

Standard

Today, 9 years ago, I married the most wonderful man on earth.
This morning, I woke up to the mix on my iPhone playing "our song".
Again and again I choose to throw my arms open to Dancing in the Minefields.
Again and again Satan throws his flaming arrows, and tries to make me fear the Gift.
Again and again and **yet again** I choose to embrace the Gift.
That's what the Promise is for.

love, The Happiest Wifey :0)

Here are the lyrics, for those of you (like me) that need to "see" the song:

Prepare ye the way of the Lord

Standard

I was listening to this song this morning on the way to dropping Rena off at band… it’s one I’ve been listening to lately… I don’t listen to music often, maybe a couple of hours a week, since I hit sensory overload fairly quickly; once I do listen to something, I listen to it over and over, wanting to “get it”.
This song is sobering, a reminder of how we can’t just jump on the bandwagon of “joining church” and figure it’s all good after that, that we’re “in”: in Revelation, the message from Jesus **to the church** is to repent!
But this morning, as I was realizing the seriousness of the shortcomings and failings of us, the Church, and the NEED for us to repent (or else), I was so tremendously blessed by the realization that the call, in this song and in the Bible, is an *invitation* as well as a command!
We *can* repent! It’s not just that we see our fallings and have to stay in regret and shame, He is calling us – inviting us- to repent! And to remember what repent means: NOT to regret and apologize, as we so often tend to think, but to **turn away and go in the opposite direction**! To STOP what we are doing and do the right thing instead.
I’m not getting into bare words the beauty and excitement I feel this morning; I hope you can take this little kernel of a thought I’m sharing with you and run with it. Let me know what all He shows you!

Our Song

Standard

Well, I think Jeff found “our song”…Free Valentines Smileys doesn’t every couple have one?Adult Smileys
And, for those of you who know us personally, Yes, it’s a Jeff-n-Shannon type song! Smiley Faces
It’s called “Both of Us’ll Feel the Blast” and it’s by a band called Waterdeep that we just discovered. We both really like the sound of the band; we haven’t listened to all their stuff yet, but we’ve enjoyed what we have listened to. For the adventurous (or curious) among you, you can go here and listen to #9. Enjoy!
