A week in Review

Phyllis comes home in one week!! I am excited to see her, but sad for her as her mission trip in Colombia will be ending and I know how much she loves it there!

I ran a mile in 12:02 which is my best time yet this competition! I know that its silly but feels like such a huge accomplishment. It felt so good! And I really enjoyed encouraging others to be their best yesterday.

Funeral sucked on Tuesday, I know they are not supposed to be fun, but they aren’t that bad if you know the person is in heaven.

I like that somehow I am inspiring, although I don't get it, if I'm honest, I like when people say I'm inspiring.

I am super hyped up this morning, I think it’s a combination of running so much yesterday and my tea is wicked strong this morning!

Have you ever heard the song ‘Glitter in the Air’ by Pink? I love this song, I mean normally I have to say that I am not into ‘regular’ music that much, 99% of the stuff that I would chose to listen (especially if we had a GOOD Christian music station in Detroit!) would be worship music, but I really love love this song. I feel my heart leap when it comes on the radio. I love the words, the music. I think a lot of the reason that I love it is because almost all the things she says ‘Have you ever…’ are things that you would have to do if you were brave. I don’t ever feel brave, really half the time I am scared to death about everything, I think I might hide it well if you don’t know me, but if you know me, you know I’m scared, but I want to be brave.

Josh 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

Glitter in the Air ~ Pink

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Closed your eyes and trusted, just trusted?
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, "I just don't care"?

It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg
The sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning
The breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
You're whole life waiting on the ring to prove you're not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It's only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table
The walk before the run
The breath before the kiss
And the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?

There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee,
Calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight?
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself will it ever get better than tonight?
