#1wordwednesday / the song currently making me {CRY}

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

Every time I get in the car lately, this song on Air1 Radio starts playing and it feels like God is wanting me to pay attention. And it makes me {CRY}.

I think about how one of my favorite authors tells us to always pay attention to the tears.

I don’t wanna miss it 
I don’t wanna look back someday and find
Everything that really mattered
Was right in front of me this whole time
Open up my eyes, Lord
Keep me in the moment just like this
Before the beautiful things we love
Become the beautiful things we miss

Then this part right here y’all…I can’t even.

We don’t get to rewind
There’s no such thing as next time
Help me remember, help me remember, we don’t get this back
They were right when they said don’t blink
It all goes faster than you think
Help me remember, help me remember
The beautiful things we miss

I don’t want to miss my handsome husband reaching over to hold my hand and those eyes that still capture me when they look deep into my soul.

I don’t want to miss turning around in the car to see Brock give me the biggest cheesy grin you’ve ever seen and a big, “My LOVE you, mommy!”

Help me remember, help me remember

I don’t want to miss Kylie coming up with off the wall questions about life and God and love and church and whatever else she can come up with while we ride in the car. This child is my thinker.

I don’t want to miss Kayla learning to ride an adult bike on the long gravel driveway and coming up after a fall with her thumbs up to let us know she’s ok and she’s gonna get right back on to ride again.

Help me remember, help me remember

The beautiful things we miss.

Open up my eyes, Lord.

  2. Best post ever! In this world of social media and always seeing what’s going on in everyone else’s life the Lord has helped me realize to Focus on my life and the moments that will not last! Time is the most important thing we have! I believe that’s why Satan wants to steal it from us! I sure never want to waste one second!! Love this song thanks so much for sharing Starr!!
