How You Live


Turn Up The Music (How You Live)

By Point Of Grace

Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open
Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
Have what you want, but want what you have
And don't spend you life looking back


Turn up the music Turn it up Loud
Take a few chances Let it all out
Because you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
Because it's not who you knew and it's not what you did
It's how you Live


So go to the ballgames and go to the ballet
And go see your folks more than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children Dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him every night
Don't run from the truth cause you can't get away
Oh no
Just face it and you'll be ok


Turn up the music
Turn it up Loud
Take a few chances Let it all out
Because you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
Because it's not who you knew and it's not what you did
It's how you Live


Where ever you are and wherever you've been
Now is a time to begin
So give to the needy and Pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
And make peace with God and Make peace with yourself
Oh yeah
Cause in the end there's nobody else


Turn up the music Turn it up Loud
Take a few chances Let it all out
Because you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
Because it's not who you knew and it's not what you did
It's how you Live


Because it's not who you knew and it's not what you did
It's how you Live


This was on a CD recently given to me as a gift. It brought tears to my eyes. To me personally it says that I an't just give up and let this cancer take over. I have to live my life to the fullest with purpose and meaning. I have to make sure I am following God's purpose. What is important is not popularity, fame or money. It's how I've lived my life....for Him. I can'tjust wait for the next test to see whether or not I hve cancer yet. I need to get out to my kids ballgames and plays and not sit in a corner worrying. God doesn't want me to do that. He wants me to let Hm worry about stuff....to cast my cares on Him. I will probably keep this song handy to play whenever I start to worry about the cancer because with it reocurring in friends that probably won't be far from my mind. I hope you enjoy it. Please keep me in your prayers that I stay healthy as I hope to complete my chemo starting Tuesday.
