Construction zone

Well, hello there! If you are reading this at night, Congrats! You have made it through another day of beauty and challenges. And for those morning, folks - put on your armor and jump full force into your day today... you are not alone as you step out. Look for the beauty, its always there.

Hold it all together everybody needs you strong.  But life hits you out of nowhere and barely leaves you holding on. 
So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held.  Your world's not falling apart, its falling into place.  I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held.  Just be held.
If your eyes are on the storm You'll wonder if I love you still. But if your eyes are on the cross You'll know I always have and I always will.
And not a tear is …

Each particle of sand that falls through this hourglass is real life, we cant flip it over and let it come back through again. Its considered the past and that is where it stays. Think about it... that breath you just took.. you took it in the past. That last sentence you read? It was in a past moment, too. Its crazy to think of things like that. 
Just look at this: There are approximately 83 days left until Christmas. That is 1,992 hours, 119,520 minutes, 7,171,200 seconds that will be gone. Forever. Time we cannot get back. That's a lot of time, isn&#…
