Hello World

I love Lady Antebellum. Love. And I love this song. But I have never seen the video.

Brenton was grilling food and I decided to youtube some Lady A. This is one of my favorite songs, so naturally, I look it up... and I cry through almost the entire video!

I hope this is for you (as it was for me) a gentle reminder why we are here and how limited our time is.



Traffic crawls, cell phone calls
top video screams at me through my tinted windows
I see a little girl, rust red minivan
she's got chocolate on her face, got little hands

and she waves at me, yeah, she smiles at me

well, hello world, how you been?
good to see you, my old friend
sometimes I feel cold as steel
broken like I'm never gonna heal

I see a light, a little hole, and a little girl
well, hello world

every day I drive by a little white church
it's got these little white crosses like angels in the yard
maybe I should stop on in and say a prayer
maybe talk to God like He is there

oh, I know He's there, yeah, I know He's there

well, hello world, how you been?
good to see you, my old friend
sometimes I feel as cold as steel
and broken like I'm never gonna heal

I see a light, a little grace, a little faith unfurl
well, hello world

sometimes I forget what living's for and I hear my life through my front door
and I'll be there, oh, I'm home again
I see my wife, little boy, little girl
hello world, hello world

all the empty disappears, I remember why I'm here
just surrender and believe, I fall down on my knees
hello world

"For I know the plans I have for you, 'declares the LORD,' plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." - Jeremiah 29:11-13
