I Hope You Dance
by LeeAnn Womack

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance...I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance...I hope you dance.
I hope you dance...I hope you dance.

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance...I hope you dance.
I hope you dance...I hope you dance.
I hope you dance...I hope you dance..

The best inheritance a parent can give his children is a few minutes of his time each day.

Thought of the Day - 2/27/09

Busyness ruins relationships. It substitutes shallow frenzy for deep
friendship. It promises satisfying dream but delivers hollow nightmares. It feeds the ego but starves the inner man. It fills a calendar but fractures a family.

Around the Blogosphere #2

Can I make my point any clearer than to direct you to this woman's blog?

Depression is so subtle.
It's scary.
It's lonely.
It's common.
It's real.

This is important. Take a minute and share . . . identify with . . . sympathize.

Family Blessing

May God bless our family,
And fill our home with love.
May we cherish our time together,
And give thanks to God above.
But as for me and my house,
we shall serve the Lord.

My interpretation of Joshua 24:15.
