Music Monday - How You Live....

Last Friday on Caffeinated Randomness I finished some sentences. One of the sentences I had to finish was Take My Advice: I answered : Laugh at something everyday. It will lighten your mood. Now don't take me wrong I still think this is great advice.

I know everyone has advice to give us along the way:
  • Don't Go to Sleep Angry
  • LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE
  • The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.
However, the best I advice I recently received is through song. How you Live by Point of Grace is a filled with great advice to live by.



Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open
don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
wear your red dress, use your good dishes
make a big mess and make lots of wishes
and have what you want but want what you have
and don't spend your life looking back

Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances
Let it all out
'cause you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
'cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
it's how you live

So go to the ball games and go to the ballet
go see your folks more than just on the holidays
kiss all your children, dance with your wife
tell your husband you love him every night
don't run from the truth, 'cause you can't get away
just face it and you'll be ok

Turn up the music
turn it up loud
take a few chances
let it all out
'cause you won't regret it
looking back from where you have been
'cause it's not who you knew
and it's not what you did
it's how you live

Wherever you are and wherever you've been
now is the time to begin

So give to the needy and pray for the grieving
even when you don't think that you can
'cause all that you do is about to come back to you
so think of your fellow man
make peace with God, make peace with yourself
'cause in the end, there's nobody else

Turn up the music
turn it up loud
take a few chances
let it all out
'cause you won't regret it
looking back from where you have been
'cause it's not who you knew
and it's not what you did
it's how you live

Now share some of your Music Monday advice with Shawntele at Saved by Grace.

Great song. "Have what you want, but want what you have". Do we truly want what we have? I so wish this. That I appreciate and want what I have.

I haven't heard anything from Point of Grace in a long time. Thanks for posting it!
