Its been a long time coming
since I saw your face
Since we held it down
Since we were in the chase
It was the road less traveled
The path less formed
A skinny trail
It was barely worn
But we kept walkin'and slippin' and talking'
And runnin' and fallin'
And cryin' and crawlin'
We were in the trenches
On top of the world
Young refugees but we were momma's pearls
Where you been dog?
Where you been?

I thought you fell off the face of the earth
I thought you fell, I thought you fell
I thought you fell off the face of the earth
I thought you fell, I thought you fell

Its been way too long and we've come too far
For you to drop out of my life like a falling star
Right off my radar
Not a sign or a trace
You know I had love for you that's Bigger than mistakes
Now Hope Road is calling
Let's pack you up and move'
Cause real friends are willing to intrude
So I'm gonna push you in because I wanna love you well
Let the ghosts of your past rest

Open up the door
This is the first day of the rest of your life
What are you waiting for?
This is the first day of the rest of your life
Open up the door
To life ...
Behold I stand at the door and knock
If anyone hears my voice and opens the doorI will come in ...

What a promise God gives us when we totally lean on Him during the trouble times we face. I'm thankful I have put my faith and trust in a Savior who cares and loves me. Who doesn't leave me when I'm struggling...Who brings specific people in my life to encourage me...Who not only loves me unconditionally, but also likes me.

I'm learning that in the face of trials and struggles in our lives...God is there...How do I know??? Because of the great examples recorded in the Bible, David, Abraham, Moses, etc. Because in my own family...God has proven Himself time and time again. I'm thankful my parents allowed me to see where God stepped in and totally took control of the situation and trial we faced. It helps me to know that I can trust because I've seen Him come through in another situation.

A friend of mine left a quote for me in an email. It said, "I wish my bra was as supportive as my friends." LOL!! It was a good quote, but seriously...I have great friends...they support me when I'm down...they rejoice in my accomplishments...they are real. I'm so thankful to have great friends in my life.

As for the rest of me...I'm not feeling to well. I came home from work early with an upset stomach and headache. I don't have a fever, so I'm not sure if I'll stay home tomorrow or not. I may if I still have this queasy feeling...I don't think I'm contagious since there is no fever, but I just don't feel well when having to sit up at work.

Continue to pray for my friend. I haven't heard from him and am leaving Him in God's hands.

Until next time...
