Over the years that I’ve had this blog I’ve shared favorite recipes, travels, daily life, and stories. So many stories. And often I find myself talking about Jesus here. And the more I tell “my” stories, the more you hear about Jesus. I heard a song recently that really summed this up beautifully.
If I told you my story, you would hear hope that wouldn’t let go
If I told you my story, you would hear love that never gave up
And if I told you my story, you would hear life, but it wasn’t mine…
If I should speak then let it be: of the grace that is greater than all my sin! Of when justice was served and where mercy wins! Of the kindness of Jesus Who draws me in. Oh, to tell you my story is to tell of Him!
This is my story. This is my song. Praising my Savior all the day long.
-Big Daddy Weave
Yes, this. Exactly. I could have written the lyrics to this song. This is my story. It is full of hope and love and grace. When I tell “my” story, really I am telling you about Jesus.

My teen girls have all graduated high school and are headed to college next month. In a couple of weeks we will have our last sleepover together at my house and I am working on what exactly I want to share with them. Choosing parting words after 6 years is no easy task for me. But this song sums up so beautifully all the things I want to communicate to them. I hope that this is what they have seen in me all these years. That “my” stories and life point to Jesus.
Do you have a song you feel like you could have written because the lyrics ring so true for you?
If you were sending a group of girls off to college, what would your final parting words or advice be?
