Lyrics to the most influencial song in 2007 for Robert Howard:

When you cry be sure to dry your eyes,
cause better days are sure to come.
And when you smile be sure to smile wide,
and don't let them know that they have won.
And when you walk, walk with pride,
and don't show the hurt inside,
because the pain will soon be gone.

Chorus:
And when you dream, dream big,
As big as the ocean blue.
Cause when you dream it might come true.
So When you dream, dream big.

And when you laugh be sure to laugh out loud,
cause it will carry all your cares away.
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself,
it will help you feel okay.
And when you pray,
pray for strength to help to carry on
when the troubles come your way.

Chorus:
And when you dream, dream big,
As big as the ocean blue,
Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big.

And when you laugh be sure to laugh out loud,
'cause it will carry all your cares away.
And when you see,
see the beauty all around and in yourself,
and it will help you feel okay.
And when you pray,
pray for strength to help to carry on when the troubles come your way.

Graces.

Jesus, I confess my recent blindness to the graces you have blessed me with. Thank you for your grace and hand in my life. You are amazing.

Thank you for the grace of:
  • Dying on the cross for my sins.
  • The Gift of your Spirit to dwell with in me.
  • A great father who raised me in such a way as to be a man and work hard.
  • A great mother who raised me by herself as she struggled against the world to be everything to me.
  • A great wife who loves me more than I know and seeks to serve you in everything.
  • Great girls who teach me more than I have taught them combined.
  • 28 years of great health.
  • Awesome friends who are always there to listen to my wacky ideas, teach me more about you, and rebuke me when needed.
  • A great job that you blessed me with and have shown me favor in.
  • A great church to put my hands to the plow with.
  • Great family to support me in whatever I do.

Thanks for your grace, Jesus. You are my best friend.
