Another New Favorite..... Naturally :P

So, for Christmas, my Grandma & Grandpa gave me a Celtic Woman CD (along with a CT CD) and this song is on it. "Someday" by Celtic Woman's Chloe Agnew. Hope you like and I'll try to put it on my playlist below. :)


Someday, when we are wiser
When the world's older
When we have learned
I pray someday we may yet
Live to live and let live

Someday, life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
And greed will not pay
Godspeed, this bright millenia
On it's way, let it come someday

Someday our fight will be won, and
We'll stand in the sun, in
That bright afternoon
'Til then, on days when the sun
Is gone, we'll hang on
If we wish upon the moon

There are some days, dark and bitter
Seems we haven't got a prayer
But a prayer for something better
Is the one thing we all share

Someday, when we are wiser
When the whole world is older
When we have love
And I pray someday we may yet
Live to live and one day, someday
Someday life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
And greed will not pay

Godspeed this bright millenia
Let it come
If we wish upon the moon

One day, someday....soon

A Christmas Song....

Hey there!! haven't posted in awhile... I know. I've been super busy with alot of things... check out my blog Texas Flower to see what I've been up to!!!!!!!! :D Here's a song for ya... "Let it Snow" sung by Celtic Woman on my playlist :D Enjoy!


Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I've bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Just for Kristi

I did some changing on my playlist down below..... "Connected" and "Two Voices, One Song" have been added.
Krista, I'll never sing or listen to these songs without thinking of you. <3
Enjoy everyone!


I'm blind-folded on this carriage ride they call life.
Keep trying to make it through the next turn, knuckles white and holdin' tight.
So here I go, takin' a curve,
but I know that I'm never alone.
I think of you, I know you'd never let me go.

I feel connected, protected, it's like you're sitting right with me all the time.
You hear me, you're near me,
and everything else's gonna be alright.
'Cause nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this time.
Connected...connected inside.

It's not an accident, the time we spent apart.
But now we're so close, I can always find you right here in my heart.
You've given me somethin' I need, and I don't ever want it to end.
Because of you, I know I've found my strength again.

I feel connected, protected, it's like you're sitting right with me all the time.
You hear me, you're near me,
and everything else's gonna be alright.
'Cause nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this time.
Connected...connected inside.

Everytime that I breathe, I can feel the energy.
Reachin' out, flowin' through, you to me and me to you. Find your dream,
walk or stand, you are everywhere I am.
Seperate souls, you to find, touching at the speed of light.

I feel connected, protected, it's like you're sitting right with me all the time.
You hear me, you're near me,
and everything else's gonna be alright.
Connected, protected, now you're in my mind, now I'm doin' fine.
You hear me, you're near me, and everything else's gonna be alright.
'Cause nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this time.
Connected...connected inside

My Wish..... A REALLY Good Song!!

Okay, so another fav song!!! :D:D:D:D I LOVE alot of songs!!!! (if you couldn't tell haha) This song is called "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts (See playlist below, it's on there). It's a great song!!! And if you don't wanna listen to it, that's fine, just PLEASE read the lyrics at least!! :D:D:D You'll love it! :) This is my wish to all my friends, so y'all imagine me singing it to you! <3


I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big

Another Really Good Song!!!!!!

Hey there!!!!!!! This song is one of my favorites, it's kinda special to me because it's Sissy's and my song. <3 It's called I'll Stand By You and the only person that I know of that sings it is Carrie Underwood. Well, here's the lyrics, hope you enjoy!!! Here's the link for it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPzAsuWV_XM


Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'Cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

New fav song!!! Of course :)

Hey!! This is my new favorite song!! I have a favorite song everyday, but this has to be my absolutely new favorite!!! It's called "A Bird Without Wings" and the only person/people I know that songs this is Celtic Thunder (which you'd probably hear if you went to my other blog... Texes Chick, it's on my playlist) it's a very nice song and I'll give you a link to the YouTube video of it.
A Bird Without Wings by Damian McGinty of Celtic Thunder with backup from George Donaldson

Like a bird without wings
That longs to be flying,
Like a motherless child
Left lonely and crying.
Like a song without words,
Like a world without music,
I wouldn’t know what to do
I’d be lost without you
Watchin’ over me.

(George sings harmonies here)

I get so lonely, when you’re away
I count every moment, I wait every day,
Until you’re home again
And hug me so tight
That’s when I know
Everything is alright.

Like a bird without wings
That longs to be flying,
Like a motherless child
Left lonely and crying.
Like a song without words
Like a world without music,
I wouldn’t know what to do
I’d be lost without you
Watchin’ over me.

(George sings harmonies here)

You’re my guardian angel
My light and my guide
Your hand on my shoulder
And you by my side.
You make everything beautiful,
You make me complete.
Everything in my world
I lay at your feet..

Like a church with no steeple,
Where a bell never rings.
In a town without people,
Where no voice in the choir ever sings.
If a boat on the ocean
Would be lost with no sail,
Then without your devotion
Surely all that I dreamed of would fail.

(George doing harmonies)

Like a song without words
Like a world without music,
I wouldn’t know what to do
I’d be lost without you
Watchin’ over me

I wouldn’t know what to do
I’d be lost without you
Watchin’ over me

"It Is Well With My Soul" Info

Well, since I haven't posted in awhile, I have decided to post information on the song, "It Is Well With My Soul". I have to go, so I hope you enjoy this!!!!


“It Is Well with My Soul"
is a very influential hymn penned by hymnist Hortio Spafford composed by Phillip Bliss.
This hymn was written after several traumatic events in Spafford’s life. The first was the death of his only son in 1871, shortly followed by the great Chicago fire which ruined him financially (he had been a successful lawyer). Then in 1873, he had planned to travel to Europe with his family on the S.S. Ville du Havre, but sent the family ahead while he was delayed on business concerning zoning problems following the Great Chicago Fire. While crossing the Atlantic, the ship sank rapidly after a collision with a sailing ship, the Loch Earn, and all four of Spafford's daughters died. His wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram, "Saved alone." Shortly afterwards, as Spafford traveled to meet his grieving wife, he was inspired to write these words as his ship passed near where his daughters had died.
Bliss called his tune Ville du Havre, from the name of the stricken vessel.
The Spaffords later had three more children, one of whom (a son) died in infancy. In 1881 the Spaffords, including baby Bertha and newborn Grace, set sail for Palestine. The Spaffords moved to Jerusalem and helped found a group called the American Colony; its mission was to serve the poor. The colony later became the subject of the Nobel prize winning Jerusalem, by Swedish novelist Selma Lagerlöf.

I'm Glad I Know Who Jesus Is!

Hey everyone!! I love this song!!!! And I truly am glad that I know who Jesus is, and I hope y'all are glad and that you do know who He is! If not then go HERE, it'll tell how to become saved, and also, my dad made the website! Well, here it is!

Verse 1: In a little town called Bethlehem so many years ago,
They told them there was no room in the inn
But they had no way of knowing
Who they have turned away
It was the Lamb of God Who would take away their sins.

Verse: I'm glad I know Who Jesus is,
I'm glad I know Who Jesus is
He's more than just a story,
He is the King of Glory
I'm glad I know Who Jesus is.

2nd Verse: So many people still today don't know Who Jesus is
For they have never His peace within their souls,
But I want my life to show them, how His blood can set me free
He's the only One Who can cleanse and make them whole.

Chorus

Coda: He's the Alpha and Omega,
The Beginning and the End,
He's the Counselor, Deliverer to me.
He's the Everlasting father, He is the King of Glory
I'm glad I know Who Jesus is.

Across the Miles...A new favorite! =D

Hey! Well, here's a new one! This song is soo true!! Across the miles, there IS someone praying for me! I love this song! If you want to hear, you can go to my dear friend Rebekah's blog to listen to it! Her address is: http://psalms522girl.blogspot.com Hope you enjoy!


1st verse: All around this world I've traveled
Through it all I've come to find
The ties that bind can come unraveled
I've had to face some lonely times
But when I'm tired and feeling low
Oh what a comfort it is to know

Chorus: Across the miles there's someone praying for me
Across the miles there's someone on their knees
Lifting my name to the Lord above
In joy and pain I can feel the love
And see you smile
Across the miles

2nd Verse: Life can be so complicated
Walking through it on your own
When kindred hearts are separated
It gives love a chance to grow
And even though I'm so far away
Oh I'm reminded every day

Chorus: Across the miles
There's someone praying for me
Across the miles there's someone on their knees
Lifting my name to the Lord above
In joy and pain I can feel the love
And see you smile
Across the miles
Across the miles
Across the miles

A World We Never Touch

Hey! This song is a great song, and I thought that I should share the lyrics! I don't think I have to explain these words, I think it says it all by itself! Gotta go!!!!

1st Verse: He walked along the shores of Galilee
From clay He formed the healing balm
That caused the blind to see
When stones of wrath lay heavy in their hands
He knelt to write His mercy in the sand
Jesus came to set the captives free
Showed us by the way He lived
The way we need to be
Oh love is more than words could ever say
We must touch them with compassion
To help them find their way

Chorus: How can we reach a world we never touch?
How can we show them Christ
If we never show them love?
Just to say we care will never be enough
How can we reach a world we never touch?

2nd Verse: Could we be so busy being saved
Trying to impress a world that's long since lost its way
We pride ourselves in being set apart
Yet we don't have time to touch a broken heart
Even if we found the time to care
Would we take the risk involved in always being there
Oh we hold the very thing they need so much
Sometimes the Word of life can pass
Through just a simple touch

Repeat Chorus

Bridge: We hide behind these walls
And the security of friends
While beyond the stained glass windows
The world is lost in sin

Chorus Once More
