Hope, Coffee and Melody

SO, my first blog, Mom will be so proud! I have been to Starbucks and I’m ready to drop some knowledge……HA! So as long as this Chai lasts me, I’ll keep typing!

First… I’m Staci! I’ve been married to Dan, my hilarious and awesome husband, for 5 years this Friday (whoo hoo!!!) We have 2 beautiful babies, our precious Taylor (18mos) and the little man, Bryce (7mos). It has been an amazing 2 years, God has blessed and we are pumped to enter into this new parenting thing. SO scary, but SO worth it! So that’s my home life…..diapers, play, diapers, bottle, diapers, giggles, hugs, love, and more DIAPERS!!!

The Bridge….WOW! I see so many things in the last 2 years that had prepared me for this appointment God had set up. Little did I know, this would become a whole new page for me, putting my worship walk where my worship talk has been living!

So, now we’re here.

I have a new favorite song - A New Day, Robbie Seay, love it, period. The first time I heard it, it struck this powerful chord in my heart. My basement had just flooded the night before for the 2nd time in 2 months (in the house that we bought 3 months earlier). Total bummer, Dan and I were SO down. I was driving my super cool Mom-mobile the next day and I heard these words “Im gonna sing this song, to let you know that you’re not alone. And if you’re like me you need hope, coffee and melody” Isnt it ridiculous how music can change your mood instantly? I listened on….”and it might not be, the prettiest thing that you’ll ever see, but it’s a new day, oh baby it’s a new day!” I looked in the rear-view, my kids were a mess. Taylor looked like we had cleaned the basement up with her hair, Bryce had a onsie on and nothing else, and Im pretty sure I had the same clothes on from yesterday! Peace came like a flood (no pun intended). Taylor laughed and pointed when she caught her reflection in the window, Bryce still had his toothless giggle grin, it was a NEW DAY! We made it through the night and we were still alive! I had my Grande soy no water Chai and we were gonna make it! Isnt that what we all want? Someone to understand when life just stinks? Music is so amazing that way. Sometimes I feel like God spoke words to the writer’s heart knowing that at this exact moment I was going to need those words. He really does care THAT much ;)

So…… need some HOPE? John 16:33 (google it!)

Coffee? Starbucks - Grande soy no water Chai (ok, its not coffee, but you will NOT regret it!)

melody? Check out Robbie Seay’s Myspace page, this guy is amazing!
