By the SEA - starring the Carpenter girls

This Is The Time

                                             Superchick

from the album Recollection
                                            
This is the story of your life
A movie starring you
What's the next scene have for you to do?
Leave the dishes in the sink
Leave your fear there too
Live the story you would write for you








Say hey hey wake your heart
And break break break apart
The walls that keep you from being you
And walk walk towards the light
And don't stop till you live your life
Like someone died for you








This is the time to try
Step out your life is waiting
And as you fall you'll find
That you can fly
(Repeat)









You can find a million words
To build a wall of fear
Safe behind that wall imprisoned here
Take that someday step today
To who you're meant to be
And turn your dreams to plans
So you can breathe




 







Prechorus
Chorus

Ask anyone whose time is up
What they'd give for what you've got
And how they'd live your life
Live like your lifes worth dying for
You've just walked out that prison door
And you'll know how to live your life








 
Each day is a gift...
Psalm 52:8 - 9
 
Be blessed...

almost 7 years old
a life changed by love...
 
swimming on a hot summer day!
 

 
 
 
 



I think of the song by Wes King called "Life is Precious"

Life is precious, life is sweet
Like the earth beneath my feet
Though I know, I'm passing through
I know, I belong to you
Life is precious, life is sweet
And this truth makes it complete
Knowing Jesus died for me
Life is precious, life is precious, life is sweet

Psalm 52: 8 - 9
