A few days ago, while driving,
I was trying to listen to a specific song on my iPod.
The song is by Mac Powell off of "The Story Album" called When Love Sees You.
The song is written as if Jesus is singing it.
It is a very powerful song.
For some reason I kept getting static and could only hear parts of the song.
I just wanted to hear those words of Jesus.
It made me think of all the times that I have the chance but don’t listen.
God is communicating with me daily,
But sometimes I have so much static in my life that I don’t hear Him.
I get so focused on the “static” and lose site of what is important.
It reminded me of how important it is to stop and listen.
Does static ever distract you in your life?

A Spring Clean Life Change

As I sat in my living room this morning,
taking in how great it looks, I began to cry. 
It took me a few minutes to figure how exactly what the tears where for. 
I was crying because finally I am home. 
Yes I have lived here for 2 1/2 years and have not really felt at home. 
I have not felt truly at home in a long time. 

See my parents divorced during my freshman year of college
and sold the house I had lived in since 6 months old. 
I had a really hard time with that. 
I struggled feeling like I didn't have roots anywhere. 
From age 19 till 28 I moved a lot, 
never staying in one place too long. 

At my current home 
I have even got that feeling of wanting to run a few times. 
(But thankfully I have learned to work through it)
When I moved here I was down sizing.
I had so much stuff that I could not find a place for everything. 
Over time I let the frustration win. 
Thankfully I am blessed with  amazing friends 
that helped my suffering come to an end. 
I love my place. 
Finally I am home.
