"It's a Slow Fade..."

I just wanted to share this very powerful song with all of you. Many of you may have heard it already, but for those of you who have not, please see/listen to the video on YouTube. It is called "Slow Fade" by Casting Crowns. Even if you have heard the song, just take a minute if you can to read over the lyrics - very powerful! I have also added it to my playlist so you can hear it while you read! :0)

Here are the lyrics:

Slow Fade
By Casting Crowns

Be careful little eyes what you see

It's the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it's the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

Chorus
It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It's a slow fade, it's a slow fade

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

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

Bridge
The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you're thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see

Our choices truly affect other people, whether we realize it or not. Secret sins don't stay that way. We have to live a life of no compromise every day, knowing that our children are watching and following our every step.

Good song April. It is so true that secret sins don't stay that way! And even if they did, they are never really secret anyway because God sees....
I love ya!

How often to we or someone we know say things like "but it's not hurting anyone else, I can do what I like".

It's just not so!
