discontentment.....there has to be more....

an oldie but a goodie & totally sums up my feelings of late.....

More To This Life, Stephen Curtis Chapman
(be sure to turn off the music player at the bottom)

Today I watched in silence as people passed me by,
And I strained to see if there was something hidden in their eyes;
But they all looked at me as if to say
Life just goes on.

The old familiar story told in different ways,
Make the most of your own journey from the cradle to the grave;
Dream your dreams tomorrow because today
Life must go on.

But there’s more to this life than living and dying,
More than just trying to make it through the day;
More to this life, more than these eyes alone can see,
And there’s more than this life alone can be.

Tonight he lies in silence staring into space,
And looks for ways to make tomorrow better than today,
But in the morning light it looks the same;
Life just goes on.

He takes care of his family, he takes care of his work,
And every Sunday morning he takes his place at the church;
And somehow he still feels a need to search,
But life just goes on.


So where do we start to find every part
Of what makes this life complete;
If we turn our eyes to Jesus we’ll find
Life’s true beginning is there at the cross where He died.
He died to bring us . . .


And for cuteness:

i found the sweetest baby boy standing in his crib giggling with his big brother who was up in the top bunk when they were suppose to be sleeping. time flies & they grow so fast.

he is so proud of himself (& he should be!) man he cried when i laid him down!! but i'm glad he & asher get along well. it's good to hear them giggling together.
