An Explanation....

Almost two months and the blog has been quiet. I owe you an explanation.

I was sitting in an airplane for the second time in a day. With tears running down my cheeks I heard the stewardess say "If we should lose cabin pressure an oxygen mask would drop from above. Please secure your own mask before helping others". That was it. I hadn't secured my own mask. I was weak. I stumbled.

I wish I could give more details but it would take days and lots of tissues. It has been a long summer and one I won't soon forget although I would love to.

The good news is I am getting back up. I feel like I had created this house of cards and I placed one the wrong way and the whole thing collapsed. The awesome thing is even in the rubble God's grace finds us. Not to mention the grace that has been bestowed on me by my husband, my children, and my friends.

As I continue to rebuild I really hope to be back on here. I hope to have something to say. All summer my words were gone but they are back:)

I want to tell you all about my family trip to California and all the things I learn in this process of rebuilding. One thing I do know is I will be once again securing my mask. I heard this song today in the car while I was traveling and it says it all. I will post the lyrics and then the song from you tube if you have time to listen:

"Get Back Up"

You turned away when I looked you in the eye,
And hesitated when I asked if you were alright,
Seems like you're fighting for you life,
But why? oh why?
Wide awake in the middle of your nightmare,
You saw it comin' but it hit you outta no where,
And theres always scars
When you fall back far

We lose our way,
We get back up again
It's never too late to get back up again,
One day you will shine again,
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever,
Lose our way,
We get back up again,
So get up, get up,
You gonna shine again,
Never too late to get back up again,
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever
(May be knocked down but not out forever)

You're rolled out at the dawning of the day
Heart racin' as you made you little get away,
It feels like you've been runnin' all your life
But, why? Oh why?

So you've pulled away from the love that would've been there,
You start believin' that your situation's unfair

But there's always scars,
When you fall back far

We lose our way,
We get back up again
Never too late to get back up again,
One day, you gonna shine again,
You may be knocked down but not out forever,
Lose our way, we get back up again,
So get up, get up
You gonna shine again
It's never too late, to get back up again
You may be knocked down, but not out forever,
May be knocked down, but not out forever!

This is love callin', love callin', out to the broken,
This is love callin'.
This is love callin', love callin', out to the broken
This is love callin'.
This is love callin', love callin',
I am so broken
This is love callin' love callin

Lose our way, (way way way ay ay ay)
We get back up, (get back up again)
It's never too late (late late late ate ate ate)
You may be knocked down but not out forever!

Lose our way,
We get back up again,
So get up get up
You gonna shine again
Never too late to get back up again
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever,

This is love (lose our way) callin' love callin' (get back up again)
To the broken
This is love (never too late) callin'
(may be knocked down but not out forever)
This is love (lose our way) callin' love callin' (we get back up again)
To the broken
This is love (never too late) callin'
(may be knocked down but not out forever)

This is love callin' love callin'
Out to the broken,
This is love callin'....



Have a blessed day.....I really missed telling you that, I hope your still out there!
