Being OK with Me — A Theme Song

Being OK with Me.On Sundays during the Being OK with Me series I will post music that speaks to me, and hopefully to you, too.

I thought it was so nice of Laura Story to write a song just for this series and release her new album in conjunction with the series, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I Can Just be Me by Laura Story:


A Reminder

I’m cheating a little today. Sort of. It’s a busy day and week for all of us, I’m guessing. So, I’m going to post a song that I really enjoy, and it reminds me to stop and look to see God in my day. It’s a country song, so some might not appreciate the sound, but listen to the words anyway. Play the song while you bake cookies or wrap gifts or work on your Christmas letter. (Note to self, all of those things are still on my list.)

George Strait’s I Saw God Today:

I’ve been to church, I’ve read the book
I know He’s here but I don’t look
Near as often as I should … yeah I know I should
His fingerprints are everywhere
I just slowed down to stop and stare
Opened my eyes and man I swear
I saw God today.


And, hopefully, as we pause and see God in our days, we’ll have many things to write on Magnificence Monday in the future! (Not that I don’t have anything to report today, really. I’m just too tired to put something together that would be readable.)



This post is part ofย Magnificence Mondays. Do you have something marvelous to share? A story, a picture, or anything that comes to mind. Write a post or comment below! And more importantly, notice and remember.


Day 15: Musical Motivation

It’s forecast to be a beautiful day in Iowa today, so I’ll be out enjoying some time with my family! Before I go, I have a question for you:

What music do you listen to when you run?

Before I ran the 5K with my friends, we had the conversation about how it’s hard to find Christian music that’s good for running. There’s good music out there, but it sometimes lacks the pep that’s needed to motivate one to keep running.ย There was even a post about this recently over at Jon Acuff’s Stuff Christians Like blog recently that addressed this issue.

Maybe you don’t listen to any Christian music, that’s no problem. Feel free to chime in anyway. I’m looking for any music that might keep me motivated to run. Especially as the weather is about to turn towards winter here. Some extra motivation will be required. ๐Ÿ˜‰
