Be Still

I usually leave religion and my views on the subject off this blog; not because I'm ashamed and not because I'm trying not to offend people.  I leave religion largely out of my blog because it's a very personal thing for me that I like to keep close to the vest.  I've always believed in God and gone to church on and off most of my life but never understood what it really meant to me until some very challenging things happened in my life.

I went through some really rough times in 2009 and then again when Munchkin was born and struggled in the NICU.  Through these experiences I became dependent on my religion and really started to understand how it fit in my life.  I don't know about heaven and hell, and your definitions of things are most likely very different from mine, but in my heart things are very clear; I don't walk alone.

I'm not a perfect perfect person and I'm far from a perfect Christian.  We're all a work in progress and I just try to be a good person everyday and teach Munchkin to be kind to others, as you never know what fight people are fighting inside.

Sometimes life gets heavy and things seem to be crashing down wherever I look.  When I feel overwhelmed with life and feel like I don't know where to turn, I just close my eyes and be still.

This song is amazing.
