Anyway, I was reading one of my favorite blogs Clover Lane when she posted about her friends who just had a baby who was in need of prayers. My heart breaks for so many families out there right now that are in tough places with their wee ones. I can't imagine being in the place that they are and staying so strong. So, Sarah at Clover Lane posted a link to Bowen's Heart which is dedicated to Matt & Sarah Hammitt's baby boy who is suffering from a heart condition. Incidentally, Matt is the lead singer for Sanctus Real, a Christian band I happen to love. While I love their popular songs, I had no idea of any of their personal lives.
Oddly enough, I just heard their latest single for the second or third time on Sunday and I loved it so much that I actually stayed in the car an extra three minutes to listen to it. Does anyone else ever do that? Brandon is always wondering what I'm doing in the driveway. "Just jammin' to some tunes baby!" Ok, I don't say "jammin" nor do I ever call Brandon "baby." Ha! This was the first time I was actually listening to the lyrics and not just enjoying the melody of this song. I found myself tearing up when I was realizing how I could relate to the song, in some ways. I try to be such a strong woman that has her own goals and dreams in life.... but in reality I need Brandon to be strong and I need his help when I feel weak or off course. I just have a hard time asking for it.
A lot of Christian songs do that for me... bring me to tears. I'm not usually a gushy person and I'm not even overly open and loud about my faith. Every church service I attend, you can bet I will be shedding tears during the worship service.
Ok, one last video of my other favorite Christian band, Casting Crowns. I love this song... I love lots of their songs.
That's all! I was feeling moved tonight... so I felt like sharing. :o) Everyone have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
