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


Great Week Ahead - Hard Loving + #Music Anniversary #Giveaways

Tomorrow begins VBS. I'll be the leader of the 1st graders. It shall be interesting. Pray for me y'all. I ask God for more babies and he gives me a church full of kids to attend to :)

Today was busy Sunday, definitely not a rest day. After worship, we had a team meeting and now that I'm home, I'll be doing Ms. V's hair and laundry and my son's hair and getting ready for the week ahead.

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend. And if you didn't, take some time right now to appreciate your space. *HUGS*

I'm still going through an emotional overwhelming sadness, but God has been good in granting me peace in keeping on. I look forward to seeing the outcome he chooses.

I've also been doing bible studies with my kids and right now we are on Esther (which we have done before, but it's always fresh learning right?) and indeed we are learning quite a bit.

Now for some hard love.

Trading punches with the heart of darkness
Going to blows with your fear incarnate
Never gone until it's stripped away
A part of you has gotta die to change

In the morning you gon' need an answer
Ain't nobody gonna change the standard
It's not enough to just feel the flame
You've gotta burn your old self away

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

You know the situation can't be right
And all you ever do is fight
But there's a reason that the road is long
It take some time to make your courage strong

When the wolves come and hunt me down
I will face them all and stand my ground
'Cause there's a fire burnin' in me
They will see my strength in this love I found

Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love

It's a hard love...

  1. What a great song, so meaningful & a great beat! It could mean so many things in so many different ways! Great choice my friend! You're always in my prayers! BIG HUGS!

  2. Hi Colette,
    Love the quote you posted! So true!! I'm going to print that out and post it somewhere where I can see it often. Thanks for sharing it.
    Great song too. I never heard "Hard Love" before (or of NeedToBreathe): What an incredible song of strength and perseverance. That's going on my playlist for sure. Excellent song, both musically and lyrically. And I really want to see the movie The Shack. I love Octavia Spencer. And I was surprised to see that Tim McGraw is in it as well. I don't know that I've ever seen him act before...Have I??

    Hang in there Colette. Keep listening to Hard Love! In spite of your sadness, I love how you say you are looking forward to seeing the outcome that God has in store for you. That's a perfect outlook! Hang tough...and have a great week.

    Michele at Angels Bark

    1. Thank you Michele.
      I can't wait to see The Shack also!

      So glad you found a great new song and quote!

  3. Great song to share with us this morning. Have a great week.

  4. Good morning, Colette! What a wonderful song! This really speaks to me to share with DD#1. She has the worse luck hooking up with the wrong men. All she wants is someone to love her equally so the way she loves but the thing is she refuses to see the problems before she gives her heart away. I believe she thinks she can change these individuals but fails every single time which leaves her broken hearted. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed week, my friend!

    1. It's hard when we have to watch our children make these choices. We just continue in prayer for them and support. I hope she finds hope and strength from God in this song Cathy. I have an idea of her broken heart.
      Thanks for sharing Cathy.

  5. Very beautiful songs with a wonderful meaning. I love the quote also. Thanks for sharing it.

  6. Good day, Colette; ☺ Great advice about calming yourself. I enjoyed the song too, which I haven't heard before. Love the lyrics! Wishing you a good week. Cheers!

  7. Hi Colette!

    I don't know that I've heard this song before, but I like it. Great message to it. Hang in there and keep your chin up. Try to focus on the happier things in life and soon the sadness will pass.


  8. I'd never heard this before, but I like it.
