When you feel like giving up…


I was watching Country Music Television one day about two weeks ago, and heard this beautiful song. I was feeling a little down, a good friend of mine’s dad was scheduled to have surgery in a couple days… When I heard this song, I was like, “I don’t want to hear another sad song, I’m already feeling sad for my friend and her family.”

As I sat there and listened to the words, it hit me that we are all facing our own journey. No matter what you’re facing: divorce, addiction, a death of a loved one, major surgery, or, like me, a disability that you can’t do anything about, I want you to do me a favor. Get back up, dust yourself off, put the biggest smile on your face you know how, thank GOD for this AMAZING, WONDERFUL life you’ve been given and……..

Journey On (by Ty Herndon)

Sometimes the mountains tower high above you
Sometimes the current’s just too fast to swim
Life can carry you all kind of places.
Journey On.

Sometimes in the moment of your weakness
When you’re on the edge of giving in
You hold your heart before it falls to pieces.
Journey On.

Journey On – hold your head above the water
Journey On – you can weather out this storm
Journey On – there’s a better day coming
A better world than you have ever known

Journey On – someone’s waiting by the river
Waiting there to take you by the hand
So make the most of all that you’ve been given
Journey On.

Anybody’s ship can take on water
You gotta make the choice to sink or swim
Just grab a piece of rubble from the wreckage
Journey On.

Too many times your heart will leave you stranded
You bear the scars of where you’ve been
Don’t be afraid to ask for new direction
And Journey On.

Journey On – hold your head above the water
Journey On – you can weather out this storm
Journey On – there’s a better day a coming
Oh, a better world than you have ever known.

Journey On – someone’s waiting by the river
Waiting there to take you by the hand
So make the most of all that you’ve been given
Journey On.

Journey On.
Journey On.
