I cried today.

I was driving home from a trip to the grocery store with Noah, pretty random, right? In the car the song "Sunrise" came on by Nicole Nordeman. It took my mind back to how terrible things were just 8 short months ago. My postpartum depression was just starting to get treated so it was still crushing my spirit and my heart.... it was such a hard time.

But today, this beautiful albeit foggy day, is a great day. I love my life. I love my house. I love my husband. I love my son. I LOVE MY LIFE! What a joy it is to feel this way! I praised Jesus all the way home, with Noah saying "Jee JUH Jee JUH" right along with me. I am so thankful to God for bringing me through such a dark valley and taking me into His glorious light. What the enemy intended for evil, God will use for His glory.

Here are the lyrics to the song:
If I had the chance
To go back again
Take a different road, bear a lighter load
Tell an easy story

I would walk away
With my yesterdays
And I would not trade what is broken for beauty only

Every valley
Every bitter chill
Made me ready to climb back up the hill
And find that . . .

You are sunrise
You are blue skies
How would I know the morning
If I knew not midnight?

You’re my horizon
You’re the light of a new dawn
So thank You, thank You
That after the long night, You are sunrise

There’s a moment when
Faith caves in
There’s a time when every soul is certain God is gone

But every shadow is evidence of sun
And every tomorrow holds out hope for us
For every one of us

(chorus)

You alone will shine
You alone can resurrect this heart of mine

You are sunrise
You are blue skies
How would I know the morning
If I knew not midnight?

You’re my horizon
You’re the light of a new dawn
So thank You, thank You
That after the long night, You are sunrise

You are sunrise
