My Temporary Home

Sometimes we all need a little reminder that this is our temporary home.

I just cried my eyes out at work watching this video. What the heck is wrong with me??I had never seen the whole thing.

Pull it together LouLou!

Today I am so thankful for our amazing God, and his unwavering love for each of us. Wishing everyone a blessed Holiday season!

This song makes me cry too! I read somewhere that when she sings this song, she has to think of chores she needs to do at home, or else she'll start crying at the end.

My mom works with children like this every day through her job with the state. It's so so sad to see, and I wish I could adopt all of the children who don't have a warm, loving family to go home to. I love this video, it's so touching! And of course Carrie is precious.

I think this is the first time I've ever commented on your blog. ;)

The first time I heard this song was in April of this year. My daughter was born 3.5 months early while we were on vaca 10 hours from home...she was transferred to a different hospital and we were told she would be lucky to survive the transit. I was released a few hours later to go be with her, and this song came on the radio as we were making the drive over. I cried and cried, I felt sure God was preparing my heart for Him taking her back. I LOVE this song, it will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart!

I'll have to get with the program and watch it later. I just love LOVE her! What isn't there to like I mean really though. She is so sweet and seems very down to earth, which being adorable, and making songs that we are either "hell ya!"-ing and fist pumping the air to it, or crying and feeling a little less alone.

Oh goodness, I cry every time I hear this song! Such a beautiful song and video!

I just went to this concert on Saturday and it was so amazing! Love this song also! Isn't it funny how words set to music can really make you think!?

I cry every single time I watch this video, and not just little tears!!

Amber said...

This song always makes me a little misty. Thanks for the great reminder about what truly is important - especially during this time of year!

Jill said...

I should have known better! I'd never seen this video. First I got all teary when she made eye contact w/the Mom and little girl. But when she got to the end, I lost it. Made me think of my Papaw, who passed away this past February :( I do not know HOW she sings this song. I'd cry every time!

Sophie P said...

Gorgeous!! So very cute and definitely shed a tear :'-( XXX

Jess said...

Great song!! Powerful words!

Life, Love, and Labs said...

Okay, so throughout that whole video I kept telling myself I was NOT going to lose it... I think I made it a minute and a half, haha. Such a great song! It's so easy to get caught up in the materialistic aspect of this season and forget what it's all really about. Thanks for sharing this! :)

This song makes me cry too!

I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME this song comes on my iPod. The last bit about the old man always reminds me of my grandfather and I just lose it!
