Casting Crowns Rocks!!!

We went to see Casting Crowns last night!
It was just what my heart needed! The lyrics to their songs were like a salve to my battered heart! I so enjoyed every song. I don't normally listen to them except when they play their music on the radio, but I will be downloading their songs for sure! If you ever get a chance to see them in concert, I highly recommend it!!! One of the songs that hit home was Slow Fade. All those little concessions that you make over time add up. I just have to post the lyrics to this song. Maybe it will touch you like it did me.

Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow
It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade
Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray
It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
The journey from your mind to your hands Is shorter than you’re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand You just might be sinking
It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day
Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
"This song was inspired by the spreading cancer of moral failure in the fathers of this generation. As believers, we must guard our hearts and understand the no one crashes and burns. They just slowly fade away one little compromise at a time.~Psalm 1 / 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 / James 4:7-10 / Proverbs 4:23-27 / 1 John 2:15-17 / James 1:12-15 / Isaiah 59:2 / Matthew 13:16-23 / 1 John 2:3-6, 15-17 / Romans 12:1-3 / 1 Corinthians 15:57-58"
We have to live lives of no compromise. Jesus is the only way!!

Today we went to Virginia City and spent a lazy day walking around and checking out all the history there. I didn't know we needed to make reservations to see the play, so we will have to do that another time. Here are a few pictures from the day.




Of course our favorite stop was the candy store and the boys had to climb the trees!! All in all, it was a fun day!!

Oh and by the way!!! I won a Love Elsie package from Kendra McCracken's Blog!!! Whoo hoo!!! Thanks Kendra!! You rock!!! What a very awesome surprise!!!

Have a great night everyone!!

Our whole family LOVES Casting Crowns - all of them from the 7 year old to the 11 year old sing at the top of their lungs when we pop in the CD or hear them on the radio! Their lyrics are powerful! Thanks for sharing - so glad to know you're a sister in Christ :)
