It's How You Live

I don't know about you, but I love music (country, southern gospel, jazz, big band, and, thanks to raising teenagers, some rock and contemporary music). This morning on the way to school Lyle had the radio on KLOVE, and we heard this song by Point of Grace. I loved it!! Take a minute to read through the lyrics. It's really not about who you know or what you do, it's about how you live!!

Wake up to the sunlight
With your windows open
Don't hold in your anger
or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress
Use your good dishes
Make a big mess
and make lots of wishes
Have what you want
But want what you have
And don't spend your life lookin' back

Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances
Let it all out
You won't regret it
Lookin' back from where you have been
Cuz it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live

So go to the ballgames
And go to the ballet
And go see your folks more
than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children
Dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him
every night
Don't run from the truth
'Cause you can't get away
Just face it and you'll be okay


Oh wherever you are
and wherever you've been
Now is the time to begin
So give to the needy
And pray for the grieving
E'en when you don't think that you can
'Cause all that you do is
bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
Make peace with God
and make peace with yourself
'Cause in the end there's nobody else


'Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live
