How you live

One of my favorite songs right now is by Point of Grace and it is called How you live:

Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open
don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
wear your red dress, use your good dishes
make a big mess and make lots of wishes
and have what you want but want what you have
and don't spend your life looking back

Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances
Let it all out
'cause you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
'cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
it's how you live

So go to the ball games and go to the ballet
go see your folks more than just on the holidays
kiss all your children, dance with your wife
tell your husband you love him every night
don't run from the truth, 'cause you can't get away
just face it and you'll be ok

Turn up the music
turn it up loud
take a few chances
let it all out
'cause you won't regret it
looking back from where you have been
'cause it's not who you knew
and it's not what you did
it's how you live

Wherever you are and wherever you've been
now is the time to begin

So give to the needy and pray for the grieving
even when you don't think that you can
'cause all that you do is about to come back to you
so think of your fellow man
make peace with God, make peace with yourself
'cause in the end, there's nobody else

Turn up the music
turn it up loud
take a few chances
let it all out
'cause you won't regret it
looking back from where you have been
'cause it's not who you knew
and it's not what you did
it's how you live

Don't know HOW this has happened, but I don't know that song. I feel weird saying that. Oooh, creepy. But I love "By His Wounds", your new background thing. That's a good song. And I really like the new feel to your blog.
