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)

It's Friday!

I usually love Fridays. I usually love everyday of the week.

Sunday - Church and Alive
Monday - Fuel
Tuesday - Nothing! (except once a month we have an Alive Staff meeting)
Wednesday - Church or the girls
Thursday - Nothing!
Friday - Nothing in stone but usually out to dinner
Saturday - No telling it's my day off

Today is Friday and it's someone's birthday so we are having cake. Banana from scratch. Yum! Well, I'm not eating it but everyone else will enjoy it. Except my old boss. I say this because he was let go from out company yesterday. Certainly nothing he did it's just a sign of the times. Smart, talented, great with the customer. And I stood there in shock. I have to tell you that I've seen a lot of people let go in my company, I think I counted 27 or 28 rounds of layoffs. That is just so sad.

Somehow when tragedy strikes you've got to figure out how to deal with it. Me, I just do one thing, I drop to my knees (sometimes literally and sometimes spiritually) and I pray and I praise. Yesterday I just kept humming:

Thank You Lord For Saving My Soul
Thank You Lord for saving my soul,

Thank You Lord for making me whole.
Thank You Lord for giving to me,
Thy great salvation, so rich and so free.

It didn't seem right and it seemed completely appropiate at the same time. Hosanna! God save us! There are days when I know that I don't have it nearly as bad as the rest of the world, but I'm ready for Him to come down and save us. Really all we can do is call upon the Lord to comfort us, protect us, love us.

2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Third Day Lyrics - Call My Name

It’s been so long since
You felt like you were loved
So what went wrong
But do you know
There’s a place where you belong
Here in My Arms

When you feel like you’re alone in your sadness
It seems like no one else in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call My name and I’ll be there
You just call My name and I’ll be there

The pain inside
Has erased your hope for love
Soon you will find
That I’ll give you all
That your heart could ever want
And so much more

You just Call My Name
Call My name say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive
Call My name say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive

The love I have for you is so alive
The love I have for you is so alive
You just Call My Name

I have days where I look up at the sky and say,
"Today would be a good day to return Lord".

I don't want to just hang on until heaven or be limping when I could be leaping; but some days I feel like that's the best I can muster up. I guess hanging is better than falling and if I'm limping at least I'm still moving!
