Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Words - 4Ms

I've been sick to death these past few days. Today (Saturday) I feel a surge of healing. I can actually get up and move about. I even went to my daughter's ballet. I'm grateful. I really did not want to disappoint her, so it's a blessing that I feel renewed. I hope it will stay true. The feeling of being ill is mean.

Through this time, I wished for help and was comforted by my mother's phone calls even though she is across the ocean.
We were praying for each other as, she too was also ill. We are both on the mend, I hope.

Then pushing away from myself to help with the kids. I was simply down and out. My husband I think, finally recognized that I was ill. It is not like me to be asleep, laying down. I'm always up, loud, alive and going. He pitched in to help and I was so grateful.

And the precious words from my babies. Healing to the heart.
So I share:

Theme is BRING A FRIEND DAY & YOU GET A  "FREEBIE" & SO DO THEY!   Anything your little ol' heart desires you can post on April 29th, 2013~  Now if you don't bring a friend you have to Post a song about a friend or friends!!!

“Words,” which features vocals by Bart Millard (MercyMe), is a response to “Made”—a building song, layered with fast-tempo strings, that speaks boldly to the listener during the chorus: You’re beautiful, wonderful, perfectly made. “The idea behind that song,” says Steingard, “is that when something is made instead of just happening, everything

about it is on purpose and intentional. If we didn’t just happen, if we were created by someone who loves us and cares about us and has a purpose for our lives, then when we look in the mirror, we should be satisfied with what we see.”

So “Made” tells us we are on purpose, and “Words” encourages us to live life purposefully.

Welcome to today's music.  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps.

  1. What a lovely song :-)

    Have a musiclicious week :-)

  2. What an uplifting song for the heart & soul! Words can build you up or tear you down. How true is that? This should serve to remind us how important it is to choose our words carefully when speaking to those we love to build them up always. Great freebie song pick to share on Monday's Music Moves Me, my friend! You so rock!!! I hope you are feeling MUCH better today. Saying a prayer for you.

  5. I noticed you were not posting as much and wondered what was going on. I am hoping you rested and so glad your husband helped some AND your mother might not have been there in person but her encouraging words gave you just that, encouragement. You keep taking care of yourself and hopefully soon you will be back to being yourself :)
