I Hope You Dance

I've realized today that I've been sad. People generally know me as a very bubbly person, but lately life has been getting me down. I've been bitter, I've been trying to lead my life instead of letting Jesus. But Jesus is amazing and by his grace, I have amazing people around me to pick me up, brush me off, and tell me it's ok.

My best friend send me a book in the mail today called "I hope you Dance" going through each one of the lines in Lee Ann Womack's song. It really spoke to my heart, reawaken it. Just cause things don't go my way, doesn't give me the right to stop looking at the world with wonder in my eyes.

This is a pretty amazing place. There are stars that come out every night, there is a great big world and life out there, and I'm young. I have my whole life to enjoy it. Thank you Jesus for waking up the quiet and sad places of my heart.

I wish I could post the entier book on here, but I'll leave you with the quote that really got the tears flowing.

"Loving might be a mistake but it's worth making. Love. Love. Love. You have to love, and if you don't get love right, you have to move on and forgive. And then you have to remember that you've forgiven, or else you can't move on. And if you don't move on, you'll surely end up...bitter. There are too many people too angry at a world that isn't in the least bit angry at them."

  1. i love this song. it is mine and my mom's song. it has so much wonderful meaning behind it!
    don't we all forget all too often that we need to just let God and Jesus take the wheel and let them guide us? i know i do!
    thank heaven for daily reminders such as these.
