Contemporary Christian Music

Recently I have started listening to a lot of contemporary Christian music. I really, really like it. I love how up-lifting it is, and some songs have seriously spoken to me, and made me feel better when I was having "one of those days." Some of my favorites are Third Day, Casting Crowns, Matthew West, and The Sidewalk Prophets. Some of my favorite songs right now are "Born Again," "Lift up Your Face," and "My Own Little World." And one more song that Im not exactly sure who the artist was singing to when he wrote the words, but alot of the song reminded me of how I felt about my children. Things I would want to tell them someday down the road, about life and God, and how things can be so painfully hard sometimes, but God can help you get through anything. Here are some of the lyrics..

"Be Strong in the Lord

and never give up Hope

Youre going to do great things,

I already know

God's got His hand on you so,

Dont live your life in Fear

Forgive and forget,

but Dont forget why you're here

Take your time, and pray

Thank God for each day

His Love will Find a Way

These are the words I would say

Arnold and I are trying our best to bring our children up in a good Christian household. We have a LOT of work to do ourselves, believe me. But the kids really seem to enjoy going to church every week, and Brooke says the blessing for us at dinner every night. And every once in awhile they will say something like "Jesus loves me!" and i just smile.. :)
