Three degrees of seperation?

So … you may have heard of six degrees of separation or better yet, six degrees of Kevin Bacon.

No? Read all about it … I aim to educate.

Well, today while driving my brain had a quick ‘three degrees of separation’ that went something like this::

This week I REALLY heard this song. Sure I’d listened to it before, I’ve probably even sang along … but this week those words hit my heart and I can’t shake it.

Love Take Me Over by Steven Curtis Chapman

I hear the clock beep, pull me out of my sleep
Tell me there’s a day ahead of me
Trying to wake up, sipping on a hot cup
With the little lady in green

And I’m praying ’bout the man I wanna be
Saying, God, please take all of me
And fill me up with Your love

Love, take these words that I’m speaking
Love, take these thoughts that I’m thinking
Love, take me over
Love, fill up all of my space and
Love, stand right here in my place
Love, hear this prayer that I’m praying
Love, take me, love, take me over
Love, take me over

This is what I’m sure of, I can only show love
When I really know how loved I am
When it overtakes me, then it animates me
Flowing from my heart into my hands

So I’m praying, Father, help my heart believe
That right now You’re singing over me
And fill me up with Your love

Love, take these words that I’m speaking
Love, take these thoughts that I’m thinking
Love, take me over
Love, fill up all of my space and
Love, come stand right here in my place
Love, hear this prayer that I’m praying
Love, take me, love, take me over
Love, take me over

(Take me over, take me over)
Let Your never-ending, never-failing, all-consuming love
Take over me

So I am praying, Father, help my heart believe
That right now You’re singing over me
And fill me up with Your love

Love, take these words that I’m speaking
Love, take these thoughts that I’m thinking
Love, take me over
Love, fill up all of my space and
Love, stand right here in my place
Love, hear this prayer that I’m praying
Love, take everything that I’m doing
Love, like a river, flow through me
Love, take me over

Love, fill up all of my space and
Love, stand right here in my place
Love, hear this prayer that I’m praying
Love, take me, love, take me over
Love, take me, love, take me over
Love, take me, love, take me over
Love, take me over

That part in italics? My favorite. My new prayer. Sweet simplicity that He pours out His love and we mess it all up instead of just believing and letting it fill us up.

That part in bold? The little lady in green … bring me to::

Starbucks‘ Chocolate Chai Tea Latte

These are BAD news people for this un-sweetened iced tea loving girl. I happily drink my iced tea free of calories all day long. I don’t like chai and I don’t like milk in my tea. So there is no reason I should like, let alone LOVE, the new chocolate chai tea latte. Curiosity {and a 50% off coupon} got the best of me though and I took the bait. Oh.My.Stars! So good!! Like it tastes like the liquid form of chocolate chip pumpkin bread {which I’m also not a fan of … confused much? Yeah, my poor husband, I’m a complex creature} in the best possible way.

While I’m not a huge fan of mixing pumpkin + chocolate. I do love almost all things pumpkin, like::

The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

My new creative outlet to give myself a ‘break’ from sewing, but still keep my creative fingers busy. I know, call me 80, but I don’t care … this is too much fun. I’m doing the ’12 Days of Christmas’ pattern and I’ve finished my interior grid and I’ve started the border {which is also proving to be good exercise for my eyes & brain}. I can’t wait to show you the finished piece. You can follow my progress through my Instagram feed.

Did you follow that? If so, go you … we could be friends because you just got a taste at how my brain works.
In fact, I was so smitten with myself, I am post-poning my Insta-Friday post to bring you this enlightenment.

Happy Friday!
