How You Live

A few weeks ago I shared some beautiful lyrics with you from a song that had spoken to me.  It was an oldie, but a goodie and this one today is the same!  One of the things I love about Sirius is the variety of music you can listen to, but I always come back to The Message and this beautiful song by Point of Grace was playing Friday afternoon.  I have heard it more times than I can count, but for some reason it just spoke to me last week and I hope that it will do the same for you today!  To me, this song is the perfect example of how to Enjoy the Journey.

Wake up to the sunlight with your widows 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 ballgames and go to ballet
And 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, oh no
Just face it and you'll be okay


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

Oh, 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 bound to come back to you
So, think of your fellow man

And make peace with God
And make peace with yourself, oh yeah
'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

'Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did, it's how you live
