“Tough” by Kellie Pickler

I wanted lace, I wanted pearls
To be a princess like the other girls
But life came hard to my front door
And I grew up tryin’ to even up the score.
–Tough; I ain’t never been nothin’ but tough.
All my edges have always been rough
But Jesus loves me anyway; oh, back off
There ain’t nothin’ wrong with a woman who got a little backbone
Just wait till you taste her kind of love.
–You want a shy little thing
A pretty little high-heeled thing
You’re gonna cry if I don’t polish up
Tough.
–The way I see it, the hand of Fate
Did me a favor with the cards he dealt my way
Found out fast life is a game
You’re out real quick if you don’t know how to play.

Sidewalk Prophets “Words I Would Say”

growingupdad:

Sidewalk Prophets “Words I Would Say.”  Listening to this dropping off the kids I was struck with the thought that this is what my dad would say if he could emotionally verbalize his heart.  Tears have come as I have meditated on these simple truths in song.  Sometimes it’s so hard to receive, even if that is the first step in growth, but this song had a way of connecting me and my dad in a special way.

“Anchor” by Mindy Gledhill

© 2010 Blue Morph Music (BMI)

When all the world is spinning round
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down

I am nearly world renowned
As a restless soul who always skips town
But I look for you to come around
And anchor me back down

There are those who think that I’m strange
They would box me up and tell me to change
But you hold me close and softly say
That you wouldn’t have me any other way

When people pin me as a clown
You behave as though I’m wearing a crown
When I’m lost I feel so very found
When you anchor me back down

When all the world is spinning round
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down
