A Stolen Life And The Broken Places Soothed With #Music

Between yesterday evening and this morning I read A stolen Life from Jaycee Lee Dugard.  I stopped reading around 1am last night/this morning because I had reached the part when she was about to meet her mother and it was overwhelming for me.

I remember when I first met my mother and all the questions I had about her. I didn't remember her as a child and so it was knowing a brand new mother.

I couldn't believe that God gave me the gift of knowing her. I've prayed most of my life to know her and so it was a gift.

It was February of 2004. A Friday. I remember talking on the phone with my sister too, whom I've never met. It was a voice of echo.

Since then my mother and I have developed a good relationship. Many things have happend since then, but I hope we'll continue to have a good relationship.



Have you read her book?
Will you read the book? It's heartwrenching and still so much hope and seeing the fortitude of human spirit.

A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard.

In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen.
For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse.

For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation.

On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I don’t think of myself as a victim. I survived.

A Stolen Life is my story—in my own words, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.

I"m late with the music, but I"m here and will visit all of you.

And with that I want to find strength in the broken places.




I trust You to heal
I trust You to save
So I'll trust You enough
To get out of the way
To come where I am
To silence my doubt
So I'll forfeit my plans
And let Yours play out

You are strong
In the broken places
I'm carried in Your arms
You are strong
In the broken places
There's healing in these scars

So I'll keep coming back
To what You said first
Beyond what I see
Beyond how it hurts
Whatever You ask God
No matter how hard
The place of my breaking is
Right where You are

You are strong
In the broken places
I'm carried in Your arms
You are strong
In the broken places
There's healing in these scars

You redeem You restore
You make things better than before
You reconcile You resurrect
You speak life over death [x3]

You are strong
In the broken places
I'm carried in Your arms
You are strong
In the broken places
There's healing in these scars

Live Well & Prospurr - Morris The Celebrity Cat Interview - #MorrisFeeds

Live Well & Prospurr

Morris the Cat is known throughout the world as the star of over fifty 9Lives cat food commercials from the 1970s up through today. He gained even greater notoriety when he became an advo-cat for kitty adoptions with his “Million Cat Rescue” initiative, and just this year, he took a trip to South by Southwest as a feline technology correspondent.

It seems America’s favorite ‘charmingly choosy’ feline is always on the go, but I recently had the chance to catch up with him to talk show biz, naps, and how he’s giving back through his new effort called ‘Live Well & Prospurr.’


You’ve been a TV star since the 1970s and yet you look as vivacious as ever. How do you keep your youthful glow?

People ask me all the time if I’ve had work done. But in fact, my whiskers stay perky thanks to a disciplined regimen of napping, sleeping, napping some more, eating (9Lives, of course), and just generally hanging out. I want to emphasize this last one because even though it’s categorically important for our health and happiness, it’s also the easiest to forget as we go about our busy lives. That’s why I developed my Official Guide to Relaxing, Chillin’, Unwinding & More. (I had to take some time away from hanging out to write it, but I hope you’ll agree it was well worth it.)

Are humans allowed to know what’s in this guide or is it for felines only?

Oh no, the guide was written for all species, both two- and four-legged. And let’s face it, cats are pretty good at hanging out already. I know relaxing can be daunting—what with work, kids, errands, and chores—but that’s why I created the 5 levels of hanging out. Even the most stressed out person can master Level 1: Kicking Back. Then, as people get more comfortable with the idea of just relaxing, they can move on to the higher levels and ultimately achieve what I like to call Prospurr.

How does someone know when they’ve achieved Prospurr?

Excellent question, Colette. Prospurr is the Holy Grail of hanging out. It’s not so much an action as a state of mind, but purr-haps I could describe it best like this: It’s like the moment you flop onto the couch after a hard day, mixed with the tingling sensation of getting scratched behind the ears, rolled into the drool-inducing taste of a bowl of 9Lives. You humans out there probably haven’t tried 9Lives, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. For more tips on hanging out, go to this website that I built with my own four paws: www.prospurr.9lives.com

I know working in show biz can mean very long hours. How do you keep to your hangout regimen while you’re on set?

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Just like Brad Pitt or Liam Hemsworth, I have a stand-in who sets up all my shots for me. That way I can rest in my trailer—ahem, carrying case—until the cameras start rolling. My stand-in is polyester and has a tag that says “Made in the USA,” but he does the trick. All I have to do is show up and look handsome… which is easy since I’ve spent the whole day getting my beauty rest.



Certainly the entertainment industry, and the world in general, has changed a lot since the 1970s. How do you keep up with the times?

I chase the times like a red-laser dot, and I’m always on the lookout for cool new tech gadgets that help cats and humans live well. One of my new favorites is the Apple Watch—it lets me track how much time I spend ‘napping’ versus the time I spend ‘sleeping.’ AND, today it told me that I took 19 steps going from my bed to my food dish—nothing like working up a sweat before a big meal.

What is the best advice you could give to someone who wants to live a better life?

Watch cat videos! A recent study conducted by some really smart people at Indiana University found that after watching a clip of Lil Bub, Nora the Piano Cat or of course, yours truly, participants felt increased levels of joy and energy. Science doesn’t lie, people! Bonus points if you watch said cat videos curled up in bed or on a fluffy couch.

If a cat watches cat videos, does it have the same effect?

Yes—in fact, the effect is multiplied. It’s like topping 9Lives Super Supper with even more 9Lives Super Supper. Some days I’ll watch cat videos the entire four hours I’m awake.

It seems like you’ve got a pretty nice life, Morris. 

I’m very lucky, but to me, being a celebricat isn’t about paw-ty hopping or head-booping Hollywood royalty. It’s about enjoying the simple pleasures that let me live well—and helping others to do the same. You may not know this, but I was actually a rescue cat in Chicago before I was ‘discovered.’ This year, with your support, I’m donating a million meals to the ASPCA. Every time you tweet using #MorrisFeeds I’ll donate a bowl of 9Lives to a kitty in need.

And I haven’t forgotten about my human fans: Go to www.prospurr.9lives.com for a chance to win $300 towards a relaxing getaway… You deserve it!

It's Okay To Not Be Okay - Exhale With Plumb

If you visit me regularly at home or on my blog, you'll find that I'm always playing music. Music is so important to me. It helps me through my anxieties, depression, being a mom, feeling alone and all the other daily battles we struggle through as peoples.

When I first heard this song; Exhale, I realize, that's all I've been focusing on doing or I'll simply implode on myself.

But of course, you have to inhale to exhale, except that I tend to hold my breath and things just begin to get worse after that.

This song is most beautiful. It's okay to not be okay.
Let someone know.

I love Plumb's voice and her music. It's so real to the journeys in our lives.  I've listened to her so many times and she is on my list of favorites.
If you visit my blog often, you'll see me sharing her music. It's so very uplifting!

Here is my favorite song so far on her new album: Exhale

It's hard to say favorite because I love so many other songs of hers too! But yes, this new one is just wide open to my heart.


Its okay
To not be okay
This is a safe place
This is a safe place
Don't be afraid
Don't be ashamed
There's still hope here
There's still hope
No matter what you've done
Or who you are
Everyone is welcome
In His arms
Chorus
Just let go
Let His love wrap around you
And hold you close
Get lost in the surrender
Breathe it in, until your heart breaks
And exhale, exhale
Spirit come
Tear down the walls
That only you can
That only you can
Reconcile, this heart to yours
Right now God, right now
Oh God
We breathe in your grace
We breathe in your grace
And exhale
Oh God
We do not exist for us
But to share your grace and love
And exhale





If you haven't listened to any of her music. Please do. You'll definitely find something you love from her album!

I'm so very excited that I now own one of her albums! I enjoyed every single one of her songs!  I 100% Recommend!

Have you heard any of her music? 
What is your favorite music genre? 
What helps you through when your spirit feels overwhelmed? 


About PLUMB:
Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, better known by her stage name Plumb, is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and author. Plumb has sold more than 500,000 albums and over two million singles worldwide, co-penned songs for numerous other artists, including Michelle Branch, Mandisa, Mandy Moore, Jaci Velasquez, and Natalie Grant, and had music placed in many films and television shows.Originally signed as a Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) recording artist in 1997, Plumb is now known as well as or better in alternative rock, electronic dance music, and for the use of her music in film and television than she is in the CCM market.

About the album:
EXHALE, the seventh studio album from acclaimed multi-genre singer, songwriter and author PLUMB, expresses a new focus and vision. After the runaway success of NEED YOU NOW (the album, title track and book), which coincided with her own moving story of brokenness and ultimately healing, Exhale brims with worshipful songs of gratitude and hope.

The defining concept of EXHALE was born from a sermon at Plumb’s home church, wherein her pastor Pete Wilson expressed the notion that the Church doesn’t exist for itself. Rather, believers come to church to breathe in grace and truth, be changed, and then go out and “exhale” that hope into their surrounding community.

“That idea of exhaling hope hit me right away and I couldn’t get to the Notes section on my phone fast enough. I started writing the chorus of Exhale right then and there,” explains Plumb. “I have been made new by the ultimate hope, and I want to share and exhale that hope in every way I can.”


On The Album: 
1. Exhale
2. Lord I'm Ready Now
3. Smoke
4. Ressurrection
5. Great Is Our God
6. My True Love
7. Broken Places
8. Faithful
9. Champion
10 Sleep Will Be Sweet
11. When You Walk Into The Room
12. Restored

Walkin On The Sun #BlogTour #BookBlast

This Walking on the sun #BlogTour #BookBlast was perfect for my blog because it was about music! Y'all know how much I love music!

Come enjoy the tour with us!
walkin on the sun blog tour banner Who hasn't rocked out to the music of Smash Mouth?! Now you can go behind the music with a band that carried the spirit of a generation in Walkin' on the Sun; The Official Smash Mouth Biography.
  IMG_1194.JPG

Hello. My name is Paul DeLisle. I’m the guy who wrote this book. You've probably never heard of me. That's okay. Most people wouldn't know me from Adam. But, unless you've been living in a cloistered monastery for the last fifteen years, you have heard of my band.

          So begins the memoir of the creation, rise, and current state of the multi-platinum recording artist Smash Mouth as told by bassist Paul DeLisle. Well known for their hits “All Star,” “Walking on the Sun,” “Then the Morning Comes,” “Can’t Get Enough of You Baby,” and “I’m a Believer,” the band carried the spirit of a generation, but didn't stop there. Enjoy this behind-the-scenes look from Paul’s unique, there from the start, insider’s view.
smashmouth
Excerpt:
There's an episode of Cheers where washed-up ball player Sam Malone, frustrated with either Diane or Rebecca, proclaims, "Y'know, most people don't know this ... but I’m famous!"
I love that line. I can totally relate. You see, I am a founding and continued member of the band Smash Mouth. Yet I am, proudly and alas, the bass player. I’m not famous. My band is.

From the beginning, Smash Mouth was set up as a democracy between four musicians and a manager, each player having an equal voice on band matters. Yet we were all fully aware and accepting of the fact that, as lead singer/frontman, Steve Harwell would be getting a disproportionate amount of attention. Seeing as he is the face and mouthpiece of Smash Mouth, you may be a little disappointed he didn't write this book.

But stay with me here. Because as you'll see, I have a unique vantage point: as one of only four original constituents, I’ve been involved in every aspect of the band since day one. Only Steve and I have trod every step of this Smash Mouth journey. Also, while traditionally under-recognized, the bass player himself sees everything. Plus I went to college. Who better to write a book about Smash Mouth?

That said, keep in mind this book is solely from my point of view. Steve, Greg, Kevin, and Robert would obviously have different takes on certain events. However, this book is simply intended as a comprehensive account of our rise to fame and continued success.
So without further ado ... here’s what happened:
   
EEP!!! How awesome is that! Pick up your copy of Walkin' on the Sun today and get your own "backstage pass" to the world of Smash Mouth!

Exhale - Inhale - They Work Together In Sweet #Music

Apparently it was Natioinal Ice Cream Day and I almost missed it. The kids had the fun klondike bar they seem to like and I had pistachio in cones. I love icecream in cones!  Oh yea, and I did have two cones at once :D *Big GRIN*

Anyway I wanted to share this lovely song with you.

I have been traveling a rough road for a long time now. I've not let it smashed me into the ground. I crawl up and keep going. I see the blessings. I ask God to sustain me.

I've learned that it's okay to not be okay and let it happen and wait and work towards the change.

A dear friend of mine is going through a terrible time right now and I so wish I could take away her burdens. It's even so much harder with a young child.

I'm here praying support for her and listening through emails. I hope she will see some measure of mercy, love and care as she finds her foundation again. Please lift her up in prayer.

You know who you are. *HUGS* and prayers.



Anyway Our theme for Monday's Music Moves Me is  "80's Music with a twist





Its okay
To not be okay
This is a safe place
This is a safe place
Don't be afraid
Don't be ashamed
There's still hope here
There's still hope
No matter what you've done
Or who you are
Everyone is welcome
In His arms
Chorus
Just let go
Let His love wrap around you
And hold you close

Right now God, right now
Oh God
We breathe in your grace
We breathe in your grace
And exhale

We do not exist for us
But to share your grace and love

Movement And #Music - Let's Do Art!

My kids begin swimming lessons today. I"m so glad for them. I still cannot swim and hope to learn soon. I'm very glad they have this opportunity to learn.  Kids should be able to enjoy swimming.

My daughter also dances.  She loves it! And I hope it is something she will stick with for awhile. When we both watched this video, our mouths were agape! Just Woweeee!

Music is intertwined with dance and someone shared this video with me and I wanted to share it with you.

Have a joyful week and I'll be by to visit y'all in a little while!
