Say what you need to say....

I saw a video over at one of my favorite blogs a week or so ago and I'm stuck on it. If you don't know Pete Wilson then I'm going to highly suggest you pop on over to his site and read daily. His blog and church is a blessing to me.

The particular video that he posted was something he and someone else from his staff made together for a sermon. The video also happens to have the cool John Mayer song "Say what you need to say" behind it.

I'm going to make you watch the video at the end of this post. Trust'll want to. And, you'll be glad you did.

You'll even find yourself singing along. So, in the spirit of this fabulous song, I'm going to say some things I need to say.

1. I need to be a better wife. And 101 things that fall under that.

2. I don't need to be so selfish with my time and my own desires.

3. I need to let my friends know how much I love them and need them.

4. I want my kids to know that they mean the world to me. TRULY.

5. I want to work harder than ever at whatever God is calling me to do.

6. I want to give relationships (personal, professional, acquaintances) 100% of me...being fully present.

7. I want to take it to the next level with God.

8. I want to be generous in my life.....with my words, my time, my finances, and my self.

9. I need to branch out and do something completely "non Fran!"

10. I need to laugh more than ever. LAUGH OUT LOUD!!

So, what do you need to say or do? I pray this song and video sticks with you as much as it has with me. gotta do it!

In the spirit of Nike....

Just do it!!

Hugs and blessings~

Hey Fran,

Just wanted to let you know that I have a video post of my boys doing the "Chest bump" thing... I am sure you can appreciate it since you have all boys... You have inspired me to do more video posts :)

This was a great video. I checked out his site and you are right it is wonderful.
Your number 1&2 really hit me as they would be at the top of my list also.
Thanks for sharing.

How funny, Fran! This pastor is my sister-in-law's pastor. Pete's becoming quite the blog rock star these days as I've been forwarded several of his posts by people who don't know my connection with his church.

Have a great blog break, friend!!

this type of video always gets me all choked up. *wipes tears* sheesh.

I think that I have nothing unsaid that I need to say-but DOING? ugh. so many things I need to do... cutting back my presence in blogland myself, until I catch up a bit.

you can still twitter, right?

Say what you need to say:
You give me hope!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
