give us faith so we’ll be SAFE

“The Prayer”(featuring Josh Groban and Charlotte Church)

I pray you’ll be our eyes

And watch us where we go

And help us to be wise

In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer

As we go our way

Lead us to a place

Guide us with your Grace

To a place where we’ll be safe
La luce che tu dai

I pray we’ll find your light

Nel cuore restera

And hold it in our hearts

A ricordarci che

When stars go out each night

L’eterna stella sei
Nella mia preghiera

Let this be our prayer

Quanta fede c’e

When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place

Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we’ll be safe.
Sogniamo un mondo senza piu violenza

Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza

Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino

Simbolo di pace e di fraternita
La forza che ci dai

We ask that life be kind

E’il desiderio che

And watch us from above

Ognuno trovi amore

We hope each soul will find

Intorno e dentro a se

Another soul to love
Let this be our prayer

Let this be our prayer

Just like every child

Just like every child
Needs to find a place,

Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we’ll be safe
E la fede che

Hai acceso in noi

Sento che ci salvera

Call it GRACE

Loving this. It isn’t crazy or foolish to look on the bright side. It’s just an understanding of grace.

Unspoken-Call It Grace

It’s the light that pierces through youTo the darkest hidden place

It knows your deepest secrets

But it never looks away

It’s the gentle hand that pulls you

From the judgment of the crowd

When you stand before them guilty

And you’ve got no way out
(chorus)

Some may call it foolish and impossible

But for every heart it rescues it’s a miracle

It’s nothing less than scandalous

This love that took our place

Just call it what it is

Call it grace

Call it grace
It’s the breath that’s breathing new life

Into what we thought was dead

It’s the favor that takes orphans

Placing crowns upon their heads

It’s the hope for our tomorrows

The rock on which we stand

It’s a strong and mighty fortress

Even hell can’t stand against
(chorus)

Some may call it foolish and impossible

But for every heart it rescues it’s a miracle

It’s nothing less than scandalous

This love that took our place

Just call it what it is

Call it grace

Call it grace

Call it grace
Amazing, Unshaking

This is grace, this is grace

Unchanging, Unfailing

This is grace, this is grace
(chorus)

Some may call it foolish and impossible

But for every heart it rescues it’s a miracle

It’s nothing less than scandalous

This love that took our place

Just call it what it is

Call it grace

The Facebook Marriage Photo Challenge. Keeping it REALĀ 

Some days we are a glittery wedding cake and some days we are a busted can of biscuits. Right now we are more like a pretty anniversary cake that slid a little on the way to the party. I love seeing everyone’s pictures because it’s a great reminder that they know exactly what it takes to be smiling and together at the end of the day ~Meg Webber, author

Love is a condition in which the happiness of another is essential to your own. ~Robert Heinlen, author 

let it BE

It is enough to admire and enjoy something naturally beautiful. To let it be. To see the gift it is. To let it be. Catching it, caging it, poking and prodding and taking it apart may get you the answers you need… but in the process, you have altered and tamed and destroyed it as it was. Putting it back together, however carefully, renders something different. Beautiful still, but never the same.Author~Meg Webber 

  

10 things not to say to someone who works from HOME

1. Since you are “just at home” can you bring me this, launder that, cook this, etc. (Ummm can you cook me a meal while you are at work? No? Exactly) 

2. You work, but it’s not like you’re at the office or have jackwagon co-workers to deal with. (Chill. We all have our jackwagon days. Even you. If you hate your office staff so much then find a new job. And, co-workers would mean I have help and resources, which would be great on some projects FYI) 

3. You’re so lucky. (No I’m not, I chose this. I’m brave and confident. I’m smart, dedicated and a great multi-tasker) 

4. You can sleep in every day. (Not touching this one. Moving on) 

5. You can take off any time you want. (So can you, but if know why you can’t, you should know why I can’t) 

6. Can I come by at 6:00-7:00-8:00pm, or can you just bring it to me because I work all day. (Please extend the same respect to my work day and evening) 

  
Ok, a couple of things are ringing loud and clear. 

1) If someone doesn’t value your work day as much as if you are in a rented office location… you have no responsibility to honor their request. Ever. 

2) I’m quitting before I get to ten things. It’s excessive already. If you work from home and someone has to be told to respect you and your work, simply because of the location, there are bigger issues and none of them are yours. 

3) For every one inconsiderate comment, there are 20 complimentary ones. Cherish the compliments, they will be your fuel on a hard day. 

My goal to work from home is fueled by the love of my grandson, the respect of my family, and my work ethic that allows me to have laundry spinning and the dishwasher running while I conduct a conference call while the baby naps. 

Cheers to the home work force. Your decision to do so is valued, brave, confident, and respected by this Mimi.
