How You Live

on November 15, 2011

Well the results are in on the vote for "Turn up the Music". "HOW YOU LIVE" was the winning vote!! It is a well deserving song for sure:) I think that song resonates with so many of us because it's one of our biggest struggles..... Living in the moment. Or maybe it's just my struggle. I'm always thinking about what I need to do tomorrow or looking ahead to getting ready for the next tour. Worrying about my boys futures instead of just enjoying them today. Thinking about what Stu and I will do when boys go off to college instead of just loving each other moment by moment. My pastor said this weekend in his sermon. "Worry and anxiety steal and borrow from our future, always leaving a debt behind.

God gives us a very special gift called today. I'm tired of letting worry rob me of that gift. How we live today is what matters. We have the opportunity to be a blessing to our husbands, wives, kids, friends, and others. People matter to God, not our "to do lists". Listen to the song once again today. As you head into the holiday season. Don't rush through it to get it done. Enjoy it. Put out the china, love those around you the way God intend you to. AND most of all remember to sit at the feet of Jesus to remember how much you are loved.

As in the story of Mary and Martha... Luke 10:41 Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.


Turn up the Music, turn it up loud
Take a few chances, let it all out.
You won't regret it, looking back from where you have been
It's not who you knew, it's not what you did, it's "HOW YOU LIVE".

Love you,


....I got the goose bumps, hair raised on my arms experience as I read it. Just what I needed to hear today....

Thank you and God bless.....
