My daughter has a favorite song that she plays daily: “Carry On” by Fun. It is her source of inspiration in a time of recovery, while she is mine—
Beneath the surface, a voice is softly singing, enticing me to cast aside uncertainty and freshly mint my life: Carry on, carry on.
Accepting life’s conditions allows us to keep the creative spirit alive—from caringly attending to details to fervently expressing faith. To not spend time in overcoming but to use the gifts at hand, treasuring what we have.
The beauty of life is that illumined songs catch on. What once belonged to the creator belongs to everyone. What once were words of prophets become our own.
I have a beautiful daughter full of light and love. A song inspires her life in trying times while she inspires mine.
