Vacation :)

We are leaving tomorrow morning to go on vacation to visit my mom's family! we'll be back by the 21st. I'm looking forward to it but I'm not really looking forward to spending 8 hours in a car with a 2 younger siblings! ;) Oh well, you never know it might be fun ( which is what I friend suggested to me ;)!! I've got my itouch, some movies and a book all ready to go :)

Last night I got really stressed and worried about the trip, making sure I had everything, helping clean the house before we left, how I would feel during the drive there ( I've been having a lot of back pain recently and it hurts to sit for long periods of time and also I get a lot headaches) and things like that. So last night I was going to the different sites I get free music downloads from( so i could put them on my iPod and listen to them during the trip :) and found this song called Restless by Audrey Assad. At first I wasn't really interested in hearing the song but I downloaded it anyway and when it played on itunes I instantly loved it and thanked God I had gotten it. It fit so perfectly with what I had been feeling! I have been really restless and I'm giving it over to God and now I'm resting in HIM :) I have to say its one of the best songs I've ever gotten! :) I'm adding Audrey Assad to my new favorite music artists list :) Here are the lyrics but please still go here ( it wouldn't let me embed the video) and watch the video so you can hear Audrey's beautiful voice! and after you're done listening to that song click on another one of her songs to listen to! you won't regret it!

(I do not own this image)

You dwell in the songs that we are singing
Rising to the Heavens
Rising to Your heart
Our praises filling up the spaces

In between and frailty and everything You are

You are the keeper of my heart
And I’m restless, I’m restless till I rest in You, till I rest in You
I am restless; I’m restless till I rest in You, till I rest in You, oh God

Speak now, for my soul is listening;
Say that You have saved me;
Whisper in the dark, the dark.
I know You’re more than my salvation;
Without You I am hopeless;
Tell me who You are;
You are the keeper of my heart
You are the keeper of my heart.
Still my heart; hold me close; let me hear a still small voice.
Let it grow; let it rise into a shout, into a cry.
