Do you have enough hats?
I had to drop records off at the doctor's office yesterday afternoon and stopped in Target to look for new tennis shoes.  A lady stopped me and said "Do you mind if I asked you a personal question?"  Uh no.
(thinking, okay I wonder what this is about??)

She asked "Do you have enough hats?"   {grin}  She is a 3 year breast cancer survivor.  Young lady with 3 little people in her cart.  She said she has about 50 and is looking to share them.  How nice.

I've been having a pitty party lately -- and she really brightened my day yesterday.

Of course this morning, we are back to the party.   I didn't turn the radio on until I made it to the front gate of post because I spent the time talking to the Lord. 

Do you know, its NOT very nice to lie about your brother or sister.  Not nice at all.  God don't like ugly, as Ann would say.  You are supposed to prefer your brother.  Enough said.

Anyways -- this song came on.  I've not ever heard it before.   The video is a little rough, but the words spoke to my heart.  I cried.



Three in the morning,
And I'm still awake,
So I picked up a pen and a page,
And I started writing,
Just what I'd say,
If we were face to face,
I'd tell you just what you mean to me,
I'd tell you these simple truths,

Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

Last time we spoke,
You said you were hurting,
And I felt your pain in my heart,
I want to tell you,
That I keep on praying,
Love will find you where you are,
I know cause I've already been there,
So please hear these simple truths,

Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

From one simple life to another,
I will say,
Come find peace in the Father,

Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
Thank God for each day,
His love will find a way,
These are the words I would say
