Moving Forward

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Tonight we had dinner at Chick-fil-A.  They had the a/c on and it was REALLY cold!  Sweetpea was sitting on my lap and letting me snuggle her.  As we sat there, I sang her a song that I used to sing her when she was a baby.  

You are my sunshine.
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
when skies are gray.
You'll never know dear.
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

Tonight those lyrics had a new meaning for me.

Tonight I want to share with you a few songs that I've found and really like.
The lyrics speak to me.

So tonight, instead of ME talking.  I'm going to let the lyrics do the talking.

Take from it what you will.  

I let these songs build me up and make me stronger.

And I MUST get stronger.  Because there is a battle going on.  A battle I can't afford to lose.  A battle that requires all of my strength. 

Tomorrow I will fight.  Educate.  Advocate.  
Today I listen.  And regroup.


Amy Grant - Better Than a Hallelujah

I LOVE these lyrics....

We pour out our miseries.
God just hears a melody.
Beautiful the mess we are.
The honest cries of a breaking heart.
Better than a hallelujah.

Casting Crowns - If We've Ever Needed You
(This song is from their new album, Until the Whole World Hears.  I thought that was an appropriate title!)



  1. Love both of those songs! Lyrics and music speak so much comfort to my soul. Thanks for this post.

  2. Thanks Hallie!!! I am with you, I am ready to continue what I have been doing and more. Love to you and Sweet Pea!

  3. When I pulled your blog up today, Chris Tomlin's "Amazing Grace" was playing. That song always gets me and I feel the lyrics to my soul. I had that play in the background of a slide show I put together of our Walk to Cure in September. Music can really speak to and heal the soul! I have the privilege of being blessed to be married to a man with an amazing voice and he still gives me chills when I hear him sing in church.
