Audrey, Selah

Slideshow

A few weeks ago, I mentioned a song that I had written with Todd and our friend Christa Wells. Amy Perry (who sings in Selah) has a sweet, talented husband named Jake who is pursuing video production in California (in addition to being a Mac genius. I’m not kidding-that’s his title. 🙂 ), and he was kind enough to put these pictures into a slideshow for us to show at Audrey’s memorial service.  you can contact him at archiveproduction@gmail.com if you are in need of video help (or just to tell him how great he is!)

It has been a prayer from the deepest part of me that God would use these words to minister to people who have experienced loss similar to mine. Although this is just the demo of the song (the final version will be recorded on my Birthday-May 19th!), I hope it speaks into any hurts that it finds.  You will probably want to pause the music.  If you double-click the video screen, it will take you to the youtube site and then you can click “watch in highest quatlity”…that seems to be that best way to see it:)

I am daily mindful and thankful for your prayers…they have convinced me to put my feet on the floor morning after morning.

I Will Carry You

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I’m not
Truth is I’m barely hanging on
But there’s a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who’s chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says…

I’ve shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the One Who’s chosen Me
To carry you
