Slow Fade by Casting Crowns

Do you ever look at circumstances in your life and wonder, "How in the world did this happen? How did I (we) get here?" I know I have! Being a single mom, I wonder how this ever happened to me. My 16 yr old daughter is living with a friend of ours because she's had such a hard time with certain things in life I knew this would be the right thing for her.

But of course, none of this just happened with the flick of a switch. Much of what happens to us occurs over time. We slowly fade into what "happens". In this Casting Crowns video, it's obvious what they're talking about, infidelity. But I think we have to pay attention to how we are with the people we love.

Do we create an environment that will eventually lead to estrangement and a complete breakdown of the relationship? We have to pay attention to the things we say and do because it's not all about us, it effects those around us profoundly either in a positive or negative way. We need to be Jesus as much as we can to those around us.

The following are only some of the words to the song "Slow Fade" with the chorus in bold.

Slow Fade by Casting Crowns

Be careful little eyes what you see

It's the 2nd glance that ties your hands

As darkness pulls the strings

Be careful little feet where you go

It's the little feet behind you

That are sure to follow

It's a slow fade

When you give yourself away

It's a slow fade

When black and white are turned to gray

And thoughts invade

Choices made, a price will be paid

When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little ears what you hear

When flattery leads to compromise

The end is always near

Be careful little lips what you say

For empty words and promises

Lead broken hearts astray


Be careful if you think you stand

You just might be sinkin'...

Daddy's never crumble in a day...

Families never crumble in a day...

I love this song and especially the lyrics. I had been meaning to look at the lyrics more closely and here they are!

This song really hit home for us when we had something extremely hurtful happen in our family. "Families never crumble in a day..." Wow. It wasn't overnight. It had happened over time.

The hardest thing I did was praise God through our "storm". "Praise You in the Storm" was my song. My heart is still torn, but God has held me so tight. He has never left our side. I don't know why difficult things happen, but I am glad it strengthens my faith.

Hugs and Blessings,

P.S. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new website.
