Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

I was walking today. What a gift. The last song to hear as I was walking on my ipod... " I can only imagine". I was thinking about my friend and how he can sing it but he doesn't... (You know who you are).

That song reminds me of Rhonda Hart. It reminds me of her husband, Erik.

It reminded me about some stuff that's had me all nerved up the last couple days.

And as it was playing, and I was walking, I could not help but to put my hands up in the air. I am sure my neighborhood thought I was a koo-koo bird. I don't care. I just couldn't help it. Hopefully their windows were closed because I was singing LOUD (and I can't sing).

I thought about all the stuff that gets me nerved up, it doesn't matter in the big scheme of things. And I seem lately to come back to the same thing... The only thing that matters is Love. Not the kind of love that we can give, but the kind that comes from knowing Jesus.

And then I thought about the video that's below. I remember seeing it for the first time, I remember watching it and the tears just rolling down my face. I couldn't help it.

I wonder sometimes what heaven will be like. I wonder who I will "see" first. I can only imagine.

Thank you Margie ... for the tears that fall, thank you. This video so brings me to my knees in thankfulness and gratitude that my 'cross' isn't nearly as heavy as I thought it was.

There is NEVER a time where I don't watch a video or read about Team Hoyt that doesn't humble me to the core! The dad sure reminds me of my Father's love and how He carries me and will take me across the finish line!

Thank you, thank you.
Thank you for this video, no matter how many times I see it or hear this song it brings a flood of tears.
We can....only imagine!
