Something Beautiful


{Something Beautiful by Newsboys}

I heard this song in the car this morning, it is an oldie but goody.  It is a happy tune but this time I got a bit teary as I listened.

My niece is getting married in 2 days!  We may not be jumping up and down during the ceremony like in the above video, but it WILL be a celebration for sure!

I feel pretty sentimental about it, as I remember her dancing with me at my wedding (16 years ago!) during the dollar dance.  She told her mom "I want to dance with the princess."  Aww.  Now it is her turn to be princess.


She has grown into a lovely young lady whom I admire much.  I am  thankful for her example to my 3 girls, they have always looked up to their "older girl cousin."  I also admire her strength, as she has an autoimmune disorder that gives her pain and issues.  I learn from her, I watch her deal with her health hardships with bluntness and humor and I love it!

Hannah, you did good.  You got a great guy and you are going to make a beautiful bride and great wife. You have made this Aunt proud.  I love you!

The song also made me think of all the beautiful things in this life that I have grown to have the eyes to see.  My eyes are especially open, due to my recent MRI test/scare & my Grandpa's passing.

I love living!  I love life!  I love my family!

I see so much beauty everywhere:

~in my daughters eyelashes resting on her cheek while she sleeps

~in the sun reflection sparkle at the pool

~in elderly men, long time friends, greeting each other at the coffee shop

~in the lines at the sides of my husbands eyes that seem to twinkle when he smiles at me

So. Much. Beauty.

I wanna start it over 
I wanna start again 
I want a new a new beginning 
One without any end 
I feel it inside 
Calling out to me 

CHORUS 
It's a voice that whispers my name 
It's a kiss without any shame 
Something beautiful 
Like a song that stirs in my head 
Singing love will take us where 
Something's beautiful 

I've heard it in the silence 
Seen it on a face 
I've felt it in a long hour 
Like a sweet embrace 
I know this is true 
It's calling out to me 

CHORUS 
It's a voice that whispers my name 
It's a kiss without any shame 
Something beautiful 
Like a song that stirs in my head 
Singing love will take us where 
Something's beautiful 

It's the child on her wedding day 
It's the daddy that gives her away--Father 
Something beautiful 
When we laugh so hard we cry 
It's the love between you and I 
Something beautiful
