East to West

I put Mum back on the plane today to send her home. It was a nice visit, and very good to have her here - there's just nothing like a mommy hug to perk up your day. The last little while has been a bit rough, though I think a lot of the emotional roller-coaster is due to the fact that I'm not sleeping well. I'm running on about three hours of sleep, and I think the only thing that's kept me going is the diet Pepsi (boo. I'm so a Coke girl) I had with my lunch. So, for now, I'm just going to leave you with some of the lyrics of a song I've been loving lately. I just bought the album, The Altar and the Door, off of iTunes. I've loved Casting Crowns since I first heard "Who I Am" and this album is absolutely no exception.

from East to West...

Here I am, Lord, and I’m drowning in your sea of forgetfulness
The chains of yesterday surround me
I yearn for peace and rest
I don’t want to end up where You found me
And it echoes in my mind, keeps me awake tonight
I know You’ve cast my sin as far as the east is from the west
And I stand before You now as though I’ve never sinned
But today I feel like I’m just one mistake away from You leaving me this way

Jesus, can You show me just how far the east is from the west
‘Cause I can’t bear to see the man I’ve been come rising up in me again
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
‘Cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other
