While this last week was spent reuniting with my husband and saying goodbyes to his family... and 3 of the most amazing brothers anyone could ever ask for... We were dealing with hurricane Irene.... seeing so many trees were ripped up and torn apart... things that you thought were firmly rooted. Crazy. We certainly can choose, unlike a tree, what winds we allow to uproot us... and what winds we do not. And if I'm going to be broken... I'm praying it's from His amazing, hurricane-like love blowing all over me...

He is jealous for me
loves like a hurricane
I am a tree
bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy

When all of a sudden
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
I realize just how beautiful you are
and how great your affections are for me...

oh... how he loves us...

We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking

So heaven meets earth with a sloppy wet kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about...

The way he loves us...
