** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

THEN SINGS MY SOUL SATURDAYS
~ WE LIVE ~

Too Many Heartbeats Dysautonomia

I have truly enjoyed this whole week of Spring Break with my family. We haven't really done anything that special but it has been so awesome having everyone hanging out at home, talking, laughing, watching movies and just being lazy for the most part. I wish we could do this more often but life is just so busy, especially with two teenagers in the house! I also wish I could spend more time with my oldest daughter and two grandsons but they stay just as busy.

The song I chose for today is one that I like to listen to because it reminds me that I should never take even one day for granted. We just never know when it may be the last day we spend with our spouse, one of our children, our parents, our siblings, our friends, etc. We never know when it may be our last day -period.

So, we all need to LIVE!


'WE LIVE'

By ~ Super Chic[k]

There's a cross on the side of the road
Where a mother lost her son
How could she know that the morning he left
Would be the last time she'd trade with
him for a little more time
(so she could say she loved him one last time)
And hold him tight
But with life we never know when we're
coming up to the end of the road
So what do we do then
With tragedy around the bend

We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love
We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love

There's a man who waits for the tests to
See if the cancer had spread yet
And now he asks why did I wait to
live 'til it was time to die
If I could have the time back, how I'd live
Life is such a gift
So how does the story end?
Well, this is your story and it all depends
So don't let it become true
Get out and do what we were meant to do

We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love
We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love

Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The weather in life outside is storming
But what would it take for the clouds to break
For us to realize each day
Is a gift somehow, someway
And get our heads up out of this darkness
And spark this new mindset and start on
with life cuz it ain't gone yet
And tragedy's a reminder to take off
the blinders and wake up
(to live the life)
We're supposed to take up
(moving forward)
With all our heads up
Cuz life is worth living

We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love
We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love


I hope you LIVE your weekend to its fullest!

Blessings,

Teresa

Hi Teresa

This is a new song for me. Not heard this before.Thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by too. So true...so imp to make the most fo each day, the next moment is in God's Hands and we don't know His Plans. Atleast we have the Jeremiah 29: 11 assurance :)

Bunny Boo is due late next month and Bunny Girl is super excited, we're so glad and just praying we'll be a good Mommy and Daddy to both. :)

How is your family? Im so glad you stopped by...will blog stop over more often and bring along a basket full of smiles.

God bless you dear Teresa!
