I have rewritten this post so many times since… January!  How QUICKLY time has flown, and it is now APRIL!
Because so much with Cre8 is shaping up and specific posts will come soon, I’ll keep this brief.

“By the time you knew what to call it, you were neck deep in it…  Complete with summers and songs and gray skies and tears…  Didn’t request one, but you have one.  A first day.  A final day.  And a few thousand in between…This is called life.  And this one is yours.” ~Max Lucado

Mike and I are about to walk into some risks.  Risks that began to consume us around the time I wrote this song.  It is the title track of the collection 40,000 Reasons, and you can send me an email at ami@wideopenhome.org and I will send you the song file FREE through Easter.

You can TAKE A LISTEN, and I would love to hear how the lyrics strike you.

If I had 40,000 days
What would I do with them? How would I spend my time?
If I saw 40,000 faces
How would I look at them, notice them passing by the 40,000?

You’ve given me reasons to rise to the day
Reasons not to think about my way
Reasons for seeing beyond me
Seeing beyond me to You
And the 40,000

If 40,000 coins fell from the sky
What would I do with them? How would I spend my time?
If 40,000 torn paper dreams passed by my window this morning
What would I see in 40,000?

You’ve given me reasons to rise to the day
Reasons not to think about my way
Reasons for seeing beyond me
Seeing beyond me to You
And the 40,000

40,000 – 40,000 dreams, 40,000 days
40,000 – Reasons to love, Reasons to give

If I had 40,000 stains
How would I see myself, who would I blame?
If I had 40,000 erasers
How could I free myself, who would take my place
For the 40,000?

You’ve given me reasons to rise to the day
Reasons not to think about my way
Reasons for seeing beyond me
Seeing beyond me to You
And the 40,000 Reasons to rise to the day
Reasons not to think about my way
Reasons for seeing beyond me
Seeing beyond me to You
And the 40,000 
TIME—We appreciate your prayers to be clock WISE, making the most of every minute, with wise life-decisions in it!  We are eager to forge ahead with Cre8.  We know that God is asking us to be faithful with daily small steps of obedience.  The clock is ticking and we don’t want to give time to things that will only delay what is in God’s best interest to accomplish with the time lived between our first and final days.  I look forward to filling you in on what’s Nexxt.

Thanks for being ONE of our reasons.
