daughtry rocks with a great message of hope

I wanted to start this week with a message of hope. When we started this blog, we wanted it to be about positive things. Sometimes we can be a bit overwhelmed by just the every day things in life.

The Perfect Moment Project is about stopping for a moment and seeing that things are not so bad. Once you start looking for the positive side of things, it's amazing how much goodness we have in this world!



Today I wanted to share a song with you. I heard it for the first time this weekend, and it really had an impact. It's by a group called Daughtry. Many of you might remember this group from American Idol. This song is a great reminder that we all have a choice to make. We can accept things as they are, or we can stand up, and try to change it. I love this message, I love this song, and I hope it gets your week off to a great start!

Check out Daughtry's 'What About Now?' on VH1. The words are great, but the pictures really add to his meaning.


What about Now?

Shadows fill an empty heart
As love is fading,
From all the things that we are
But are not saying.
Can we see beyond the scars
And make it to the dawn?

Change the colors of the sky.
And open up to
The ways you made me feel alive,
The ways I loved you.
For all the things that never died,
To make it through the night,
Love will find you.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
What about now?

The sun is breaking in your eyes
To start a new day.
This broken heart can still survive
With a touch of your grace.
Shadows fade into the light.
I am by your side,
Where love will find you.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love, it never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
What about now?

Now that we're here,
Now that we've come this far,
Just hold on.
There is nothing to fear,
For I am right beside you.
For all my life,
I am yours.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
Baby, before it's too late,
Baby, before it's too late,


Songwriters: Josh Hartzler, David Hodges, Ben Moody.

My perfect moment was the moment I realized that whatever life brings us, or whatever we create for our own lives (good, bad, and the indifferent), we are all eternal beings. Because I am eternal right now, my choices and associations will dictate my existence throughout eternity. I choose life. Eternal Life. This helps put everything else in perspective, including the issues of life.

My perfect moment...hearing my children call me "mamma"

Much obliged for stopping by SjP's this morning and joining in the efforts of change!

Wonderful post. My perfect moment was when the doctors handed me my perfectly healthy babies. It's an awesome feeling.
