My Song for Bright

Yesterday we got to Eric's work about 20 minutes early to pick him up. The kids had fallen asleep on the way there and so I had 20 reflective minutes of silence. I put my head down on the steering wheel and put the christian radio station on softly. This song--"Find Your Wings"--came on and I of course began to think about our amazing little Bright in Ghana. I feel these things for all of my kids, but especially so for Bright right now.

Listen to and/or download this song

Find Your Wings - Mark Harris

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold

The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
And If I never told you I want you to know
As I watch you grow


I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories


It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly
