For Friday, August 5: Lifesong/And Now My Lifesong Sings

I don't mean to be morbid.  Well, maybe I do because we all die.  We can't and won't get around that.  Anyway. 
Today's song(s) are to be on my memorial service playlist. For real.  Yes, I'm being 100% serious.  I've actually told several people that and now I'm telling you so there's no reason they won't appear.  Today's song(s) are a twofer...sort of.  The second one is a sequel to the first.  They go together so together they must stay.  :)
If (ha, I totally used that word again and we all know it is a gross understatement when it comes to who I'm about to mention) Steven Curtis Chapman is my favorite solo artist then Casting Crowns is my favorite group.  By far. Their lyrical content is rich, deep, and resonates with me on so many levels. 
Lifesong/And Now My Lifesong Sings is my heart's cry.  I want my lifesong to bring pleasure to God's heart.  I want my lifesong to bring knowledge of him.  I want my lifesong to be a reflection of what God has done in me and how I chose to live that out.  And Now My Lifesong Sings is an update of sorts of my most favorite song, Amazing Grace.  At the end of my life I want to be marked by God's amazing grace.  I hope I am.  See God's amazing grace is available to all of us but only some of us will actually allow our lives to be marked by it.  Oh that at the end of my days people will be able to look at me and know that my life was marked by his amazing grace.  And while I'm living I want all that I do and say to be marked by his amazing grace as well, that's the melody AND harmony of my lifesong.  I sure don't get it right all the time, some days I am really out of tune - painfully so but it is my heart's desire and mission. 
So, what's the tune and theme of your lifesong?  :)

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
