Welcome! Thanks for stopping in. Who knew that just deciding to write a blog would be less than super easy. First you have to chose your url name. Well let me tell you lots of them are already taken. So I did what most people do, I called one of my best friends for advice - unfortunately she was not home. So I called my hip, adult daughter....this was a wash as she was not in a creative mood. Finally I called my baby sister and "she shoots, she scores!" Together, after only 3 minutes, we came up with backrowfaith. Thanks Leigh! Since I knew I wanted to write about a plethora of subjects, I did not want the name to be to concise or "just plain lame" (to quote my oldest). Back Row is the name of the band I'm in & faith is just well faith. Both give meaning & purpose to my life.
I want to make a difference in the world & in my town & in my community & in my home. So I my plan is to do just that - starting here. I'll share my journey (which will at times be very normal aka boring) and my favorite quotes & some actions to take...are you up for the challenge? Will you share your great quotes? and insights?
I absolutely believe words are powerful. They can build up or tear down. Here we will be all about building up, of course occasionally something makes me stumble & I'm sure I'll share those moments BUT know that even though we don't get to choose all of our circumstances, we always get to choose how we handle them.
I took a run this morning...maybe I should start by saying I exercise because I should, not because I love it. So on this very short run I was listening to my ipod, which has a true cornucopia of music, and the Black Eyed Peas - Where is the Love came on. The lyrics pretty much sum it up for me.
Take a minute and listen https://youtu.be/WpYeekQkAdc
Don't get me wrong it isn't easy to love instead of fill in the blank but you choose how you handle situations...
So today, right now are you the LOVE or not?
Are you leaving your mark with words that build up or tear down?
Either way you ARE leaving your mark so BE THE LOVE.
Be Blessed...until later.
