Music for Moms (Week 5)

I remember vividly listening to this song a few days after we brought our son home from the hospital, him sleeping gently on my chest and singing this song over him-dreaming of the future and what it’d be like to be his mama. It’s easy to giggle now as my husband and I look back at how we had no clue what we were doing or getting into bringing this precious bundle home with us, beginning this adventure of parenthood. But, oh – what a beautiful, difficult, wonderful journey it has been!

This song paints a picture with words of how we may not be able to control what God has planned for our precious little one, but we can teach them to love and choose joy in the midst of whatever life brings them. We teach them by example. In the fun days and in the not-so-much fun, ordinary, everyday moments, days, and weeks of the short time we do have with them under our roof. I pray our children will see in us the Hope we have and the Love we have, that is enduring and unchanging not because we are superwoman or perfect mamas- but because of Christ.

Listen and enjoy sweet friend!

“In Everything You Do” by Jenny & Tyler

I wish that I could keep you from pain

But like a storm, pain will form

But I’ll teach you how to face it

To be weak, yet strong in grace

I wish that I could keep you from fear

But like the night, fear will rise

So I’ll hold till love suffices

To drive far the dark devices and behold

A world that’s full of wonder

Full of laughter, full of life

A world that pulls you under

With the turning of the tide

In everything you do a choice of life or death to choose

And we will try to show you love

I wish that I could keep you from doubt

But like the waves, doubt will rage

So I’ll sail with you through troubled seas

Until we find a gentler breeze and behold

A world so full of wonder

Full of laughter, full of life

A world that pulls you under

With the turning of the tide

In everything you do a choice of life or death to choose

And we will try to show you love

And behold


A world so full of wonder

Full of laughter, full of life

A world torn asunder

Aching for new light

In everything you do a choice of life or death to choose

And we will try to show you love

We will try to show you love
