On the way back to Tuscaloosa Saturday I was tuned back in to WDJC and heard "If I Were Jesus" by Paul Coleman. In the chorus he sings this, " "I'll forgive you and adore you while I'm hanging on your cross." That line gets me everytime. I struggle with unforgiveness. I can hang on to hurt like no other. As a sensitive person I get my feelings hurt a lot. I get disappointed and let down and twist it and overthink it until I convince myself that this look or remark means this person hates me or thinks I am stupid. As I am singing along to this line I think, "Wow, Lord. How many times have done things or said things that hurt You? (Of course God isn't as sensitive as I am.) With my indifference or ways I failed to acknowledge or see Your work in my life. And not only did You forgive me but YOU ADORE ME! Adore me. While you were paying for me sins. " Isn't that just insane when you really start thinking about it??
I am so thankful for music and how it can speak to me.
I am including some pictures because I know that is people want, or at least the grandparents!
Some Brotherly love. Kind of. Miller wanted to show you his new Bebo! (Sandra Boyton is one our favorite authors.)Some may call it gas but I call it a smile! (He's gonna grow into his nose, right:) )
