The Most Unexpected Of Comments

These days I’m getting used to waking up at random hours in the morning, it’s become the norm for me. Like many I guess one of the first things I do, especially in these days of smart phones, I check my social networking accounts.

Usually it’s Twitter or WordPress then maybe Facebook, although to be honest I don’t spend much time on there these days, I only check to see if I’ve become a target for more veiled attacks from people I once called friends.

I’m aware of late I haven’t been responding to any comments on my blog, to be quite honest I’ve been posting, but not really interested in my blog of late, I’ve not been too positive over the last few months, which is not what I set out to be. I haven’t been visiting many of my followers either,interactive blogging has been a chore and one of many things that have slipped over the past weeks.

But one comment this morning has breathed a bit of new life into my blogging life. When I checked my interactions this morning I had a notification to approve a comment, not from a fellow blogger, not even one of my recent posts either, but from a search which found a post of mine from back in March.

Back in March just three days after my Nan died the song that I wanted as a tribute to her I couldn’t find on YouTube to go with a post about her, so I made a lyric video for the song Mama by Flyleaf.

So I was amazed this morning to find a comment from Lori Mosley, the Mother of Lacey Sturm, the former lead singer of Flyleaf.  Not only that but Lori wrote and sings the last part of the song.

I still find it unbelievable that in this day and age of technology, that not only does my blog and testimony reach out across the world, but it was also found and commented upon by the Mother of someone I admire and respect, in fact for nearly two years Flyleaf’s song All Around Me was the ringtone on my phone.

That got me thinking again though, that was way back in autumn 2008, at the time I was far from a Christian and thought that the song was about a relationship, now when I hear it I understand that yes it’s about a relationship, but one with God (although I still want to answer my phone we it comes on). There are many Christian songs I listened to before I was saved, many I heard and never understood, that’s all changed a little bit now.  Music is a big part of my life and Christian and inspiring music is something I listen to a lot, especially when walking.  My current favourites aren’t hard to spot, they tend to accompany my recent posts, over the last few months the music of Jesus Culture and associated artists has been my go to music when I’m low and in need of lifting, but the music of Flyleaf and other artists still make up my regular daily playlist.

Thank you Lori for your kind comment and encouragement, I really appreciate it, as I do all the comments I receive, I read them all and appreciate everyone of them, thank you all so much.

As things improve each day and I feel more positive as each one passes, maybe I can get back to the more positive and hopefully inspirational posts.

ALL AROUND ME by FLYLEAF
My hands are searching for you…
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips…
My tongue dances behind my lips for you
This fire runs in through my being…
Burning…
I’m not used to seeing you

I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me,
thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling,
savoring this heart that’s healing

My hands float up above me….
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade…
Into our secret place
The music makes me sway…
The angels singing say
We are alone with you…
I am alone and they are too with you

And so I cry…
The light is white…
And I see you…

I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me,
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling,
Savoring this heart that’s healing

Take my hand I give it to you
Now you own me , all I am..
You said you would never leave me
I believe you, I believe…
I can feel you all around me
thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling,
Savoring this heart that’s healed

    Hi Wayne, thank you for all your encouragement on our Christmas Blog, good to see you Posting again and I’m pleased you were encouraged by Lacey’s Mother. I’m sure she must be a very Loving person to reach out to a stranger, she will be blessed for doing so.

    When we give of ourselves to others, it is always returned but not perhaps by the person we help but God keeps it all equal,,,, the good feelings we have, are much better than earthly Treasure and stay for eternity He created us that way as we give we receive.

    Christmas Love from both of us – Anne

    I’m so sorry that you’ve had ‘attacks’ from former thought of as friends… We do find out who true friends are… those who accept who we are and where we are at anytime in our lives…the highs and the lows….. Take heart and take care… Diane
