"Love Them Like Jesus"

I've added a couple of new songs to my playlist (at the bottom of the page). Well the first song is not really new, just new to my blog. The song is "Love Them Like Jesus" by Casting Crowns. I love this song because it reminds us that while there's no easy answers to why things like divorce and the loss of a baby occurs, we can help by bearing each other's burden with love. It's easier not to say anything when someone is struggling with a hardship simply because you may not know the words to say to take someone's pain away. But only God and His GRACE can take the pain away. The important thing is to be there for the person facing the struggle, be there daily and surround them with LOVE.

Another song I wanted to add was "Altar and the Door" (not available yet to put on my playlist, but here's a link to it; give it a second to load and then press play button):

This is a new song off of Casting Crown's newest CD of the same name. It's not always easy once you leave through the church doors to stay on the right path as a Christian; what is black and white in church can become gray in the real world as we struggle with our daily lives. We sang this song at church Sunday and let me tell you, this is a WONDERFUL worship song. We have a young teen at church that sounds so similar to Megan Garrett (female lead in this song), she's great. If there's one thing our church can do, it's worship through music, which is such a big part of my worship time.

Melissa - the site is sending up a popup by Wal-mart that the copyright license doesn't exist for that song. So it won't play it. But I did listen to some of it on iTunes. Sounds good.
