Invisible Empires

Oh great. It happened AGAIN. How do her songs seem to articulate exactly what's going on inside me? every time.... Her music never fails to have that effect on me. Sara Grove's new album "Invisible Empires" comes out this October but you can pre-download it from her site (saragroves.com) so I did. I heard this one song and just started crying...again...... great. lol I would really like to listen to at least one of her albums without crying through it but it hasn't happened yet. 
As I was trying to overcome an offended heart today this song just took the words right. out. of. me.

"Open My Hands"

I believe in a blessing I don't understand
   I've seen rain fall on the wicked and the just
but rain is no measure of His faithfulness 
He withholds no good thing from us

I believe in a peace that flows deeper than pain
the broken find healing in love
pain is no measure of His faithfulness
He withholds no good thing from us
I will open my hands, open my heart
I am nodding an emphatic YES to ALL You have for me!!

I believe in a fountain that will never run dry
though I've thirsted and didn't have enough
but thirst is no measure of His faithfulness 
He withholds no good thing from us

Mainly About Maine

Some snap shots from our recent trip to Maine :)

We hit the beach with "Lou", my skim board.
Bubble Tea in Portland
We ate seafood until we couldn't take it anymore.
We made our way up to Bar Harbor and eventually spent a few days in Acadia National Park. One of my favorite places in the U.S.
More Acadia Magic. The bottom left hand picture is the sunrise we saw from the top of Cadillac Mountain. It was worth getting up at an ungodly hour and freezing my butt off for. We also got to explore some remote islands, go on an ocean boat ride, hang out with some lobster fisherman (and a park ranger), and ate the BEST seafood. With all that said I don't want to go back to work tomorrow ;)
