Thanks for mentioning the safety factor in my video! I just added this update:
**

Update: someone mentioned that I am close to the edge in this video, so I wanted to clarify that I am behind a strong metal railing that is the safety marker. People do cross that railing and get swept over the waterfall because the rock is so slippery. I won't be one of those people :).

Thanks for your support and have fun continuing to reach your goals!

During this season of Lent, I always need a reminder to focus on WHO I am living for. This song by Francesca Battiselli spoke to me this week. I hope it will minister in a meaningful way to you also.

"Write Your Story"

They say
You're the King of everything
The One who taught the wind to sing
The Source of the rhythm my heart keeps beating

They say
You can give the blind their sight
And You can bring the dead to life
You can be the hope my soul's been seekin'

I wanna tell You now that I believe it
I wanna tell You now that I believe it
I do, that You can make me new, oh

I'm an empty page
I'm an open book
Write Your story on my heart
Come on and make Your mark

Author of my hope
Maker of the stars
Let me be Your work of art
Won't You write Your story on my heart

Write Your story, write Your story
Come on and write Your story, write Your story
Won't You write Your story on my heart

My life
I know it's never really been mine
So do with it whatever You like
I don't know what Your plan is
But I know it's good, yeah

I wanna tell You now that I believe in
I wanna tell You now that I believe in
In You, so do what You do, oh

I'm an empty page
I'm an open book
Write Your story on my heart
Come on and make Your mark

Author of my hope
Maker of the stars
Let me be Your work of art
Won't You write Your story on my heart

Write Your story, write Your story
Come on and write Your story, write Your story
Won't You write Your story on my heart

I want my history
To be Your legacy
Go ahead and show this world
What You've done in me
And when the music fades
I want my life to say

I let You write Your story, write Your story
Write Your story, write Your story

I'm an empty page
I'm an open book
Write Your story on my heart
Come on and make Your mark

Author of my hope
Maker of the stars
Let me be Your work of art
Won't You write Your story on my heart

Write Your story, write Your story
Come on and write Your story, write Your story
Won't You write Your story on my heart"

You will ALWAYS be too much of something for someone:
Too BIG, too LOUD, too SOFT, too EDGY.
If you round out your edges, you lose YOUR edge.

Apologize for mistakes.
Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone.
But DON'T apologize for being WHO you ARE!!!

- - Danielle Laporte - -


Thanks for being YOU & for being a part of my journey!!
I appreciate your friendship & value your support so much!!
YOU are FABULOUS!!! :) :) :) :) Let's ROCK March!!!
Hugs,

Jes

WHen things are not going our way and we are struggling, I find what I need most is to praise the Lord. The lyrics of this song help me to do that. I pray they will minister to your heart this week.

Russ Taff Praise The Lord Lyrics

When you're up against a struggle, that shatters all your dreams
And your hopes have been cruelly crushed by Satan's manifested schemes
And you feel the urge within you to submit to earthly fear
Don't let the faith you're standing in seem to disappear
Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise
Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
When you praise Him
Now, Satan is a liar and he wants to make us think
That we are paupers, when he knows himself we're children of the King
So lift up the mighty shield of faith for the battle must be won
We know that Jesus Christ has risen and the work's already done
Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise
Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
When you praise Him
Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
Praise the Lord, for our God abides in our praise
Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
When you praise Him
When you praise Him
When you praise Him
When you praise
When you praise, you praise the Lord
Praise the Lord
Songwriters: HUDSON, MICHAEL VINCENT/BANNISTER, ELLIOTT B.
Praise The Lord lyrics Warner/Chappell
