"Shine On"

(by NEEDTOBREATHE) Shine On - Daylight





As you know, I LOVE NEEDTOBREATHE  I was listening to all of their songs on repeat this week, and this oldie came up several times. I forgot how good it is! I love the reassurance that we're not alone. God is with us, whether we feel like He is or not.

Whether you're in the valley or on the top of the hill.

I also love the encouragement to shine on & let others see our victory. And to remember that it's because of Jesus. My favorite part of the song is the Bridge:

Can you see My hands are open?
I am waiting just ahead
And you think you need it all now
But you needed Me instead



The kids & I went to see my mom today. My step-dad didn't tell her I was coming so we could surprise her! The kids stayed in the hallway, and I walked in & surprised her first. Then, she was doubly surprised when the kids walked in a couple of minutes later! She's doing much better & should get out of the hospital by Wednesday. Thanks so much for your prayers! A funny thing happened on the way there ~ while driving on the Tollway, I looked up & saw "www.BlingAndBowLady.com" on the vehicle in front of me. That just so happens to be my step-sister's business! She wasn't in there (it was her husband), but I gave her a call anyways. As often as I see people I know when I'm out & about, I must say that I rarely (if ever) see anyone on the Tollway that I know. So that was cool!

I hope the rest of your weekend is super great!

I am glad to hear you had a nice weekend. I did too! I saw one of the Lewiston & Sons trucks in front of me in Cedar HIll Friday, but I didn't even know which one it was :)

Glad you got to see your mom and even more glad that she is going to get to come home soon.
