STAND-Booty Shakin' HOPEfilled music

 So, the move is coming along...quite nicely actually.  There's nothing like having everything fall into place that makes one just SURE that they are doing the right thing.  Not that it's all stress free.  Believe me...feelin' plenty of stress here....but the stress is unmistakeably underlined with peace.  Peace that we are going where the Lord wants us to go.  So many amazing things have happened to attest to this.  I wish I had the time and/or brain power to share them all now.

 But...I don't.   (as I type this while on my elliptical---two birds people)

However, I DO have the time to share another fantastic song with y'all.  It's a goodie.

My sister gifted me this song (from Itunes) saying (and I hope she wont mind me sharing),

"Hey Mel--I heard this song and thought of you for 2 reasons: it's got a great "bounce back" message, and it's fun to shake your booty to. I hope you enjoy! I love you--hang in there!"

Yeah...sister are pretty awesome.  And....she was right on BOTH accounts.  The message IS awesome and I do like me a good booty shaker.  :0

I HOPE you enjoy it too!

Gethsemane song--HOPEful Music

I know I haven't been around much lately.  That's because our lives have been hanging in the balance for the last little while.  But...the jury is finally in.  Now the real work begins.  We are moving.  Yes, moving.  To The Middle of Nowhere, WA.  Okay....maybe it's not THAT bad.  Not really.  The area has about 7,000 people.  Ha ha!  :)  There may not be a lot of people, but the views are beautiful (reminds me of "home" aka Utah). 
 I'm actually excited.  We really feel like this is where the Lord want us to be right now.  As "scary" as it might all be...there is comfort in knowing that it's "right".  I just DREAD having to wash down all these white walls.  Blegh!

Anyway, today I wanted to share a song.  My children are learning it in primary (Sunday school for children 12 and under).  I recently had the chance to hear it myself and it melted my heart.  It's absolutely beautiful.

Gethsemane song

Jesus climbed the hill to the garden still
his steps were heavy and slow
Love and a prayer took Him there
to the place only He could go.

Jesus loves me
so He went willingly 
to Gethsemane

He felt all that was sad
wicked or bad
all the pain we would ever know.
While His friends were asleep
He fought to keep
the promise He made long ago.

The hardest thing that ever was done
The greatest pain that ever was known
The biggest battle that ever was won
This was done by Jesus
The fight was won by Jesus

Jesus Loves Me
so He gave His gift to me

Jesus Loves Me
So He gives his gift to me
From Gethsemane

Words can't properly describe how grateful I am to my Savior for the sacrifices He has made for me.  No pain, hardship, disappointment, or weakness I have ever, or WILL EVER, experience is beyond Him.  He's been there and has a perfect knowledge and understanding of it.  He is able to succor me as no one else can.  I am NEVER alone.

Today my heart is full with this knowledge.  

I hope these words testify this to you, as they did to me.


P.S. I love to hear from you!
