What do I know of HOLY????

These words hit me to the core. These are words that I feel could be coming right out of my mouth these days...thoughts that are in my mind, in my heart.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song.
It speaks my heart.
I wanted to write out the lyrics. To have them to come back too, to share my heart with ya'll.. Raw, honest words to my Lord via the words of Addison Road
Does this song hit anyone else???


I made You promises a thousand times
I tried to hear from Heaven
But I talked the whole time
I think I made You too small
I never feared You at all No
If You touched my face would I know You?
Looked into my eyes could I behold You?


What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know?  
What do I know of Holy?

I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees


What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know?
What do I know of Holy?

 
What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?
And a God who gave life "its" name?
What do I know of Holy?
Of the One who the angels praise?
All creation knows Your name
On earth and heaven above
What do I know of this love?

What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? 
What do I know of Holy?

What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of Holy?

SNOW DAY


The boys had a BLAST playing in the snow! They spent a lot of time sliding down the drive way on cookie sheets! I remember doing that when I was little and it snowed here!! Of course, for some reason no cookie sheet pics...






Caroline spent the weekend in Charleston with Maggie and Papap. When she got home on Sunday she made a little snow man on the back porch!!

Getting Back into LIFE....

Wow, I have to say.... I am now almost 2 months post surgery now. All recovered physically, pretty much anyways. I am freed from my doc to walk for exersize now.
No more sickies.
No more excuses.
I have to say I am finding reentering my life, Our lives, harder than I would have thought.
I am finding it a bit overwhelming.
I think I want to be everything all at once again. I want to do it all, all on my own strength.
One would have thought in these last years that I would have learned this lesson.
I would have learned that Reliance on my Lord is essesntial. That I cannot do it alone.
I cannot do anything alone.
But here I go again, trying and getting defeated...
And I am suprised????
CRAZINESS ERIKA!
I need to realize that I was out of things for a long time and it is ok that its not super simple to just feel normal in every aspect.
I need to realize that I have to cling to my Savior. I need him in everything I do.
I have the head knowledge, I pray Lord Jesus that you would help apply it to my heart daily. That I would daily seek you out first. That i  would walk with you, look to you for guidance, for patience, for help with my days. I pray that you would continue to teach me and grow me closer to you.
