My new favorite song...

I love all things Sara Groves.  She is an amazing song writer and lyricist.  This is my new favorite song...."Different Kinds of Happy."  You should get the whole album.  It's just great stuff.  That chorus...wow.  It's something I'm learning a lot about in this season of my life.  Bringing our sin, our failures, our temptations into the light is so powerful.  For me, the venue for that is not this blog, but still....there is power in transparency and "there's redemption in confession and freedom in the light..."  It takes away fear and conquers the power of sin and temptation.   The chorus just replays in my head, and I love it.  My hubby loves it.  We include lines from it in emails or texts to each other.  I guess you could say it's "our song."

go on and ask me anything
what do you need to know
I'm not holding on to anything
I'm not willing to let go of
to be free, to be free

I've got to ask you something
but please don't be afraid
there's a promise here thats heavier
than your answer might weigh
baby it's me, it's me

it's a sweet, sweet thing
standing here with you and nothing to hide
light shining down to our very insides
sharing our secrets, bearing our souls,
helping each other come clean

secrets and cyphers
there's no good way to hide
there's redemption in confession
and freedom in the light
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid

better than our promises
is the day we got to keep them
I wish those two could see us now
they never would believe how
there are different kinds of happy
different kinds of happy
there are different kinds of happy
different kinds of happy
