"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV)

It's been a while since I've posted anything on the blog.  So much has been going on and our family has been extremely busy, so I haven't had much down time. Of course the M&M's keep my life eventful! But this morning, as I was listening to my inspirational music, I came across a CD full of beautiful music by Heather Headley. This lady is an outstanding artist and her CD entitled, Audience of One is a blessing to me. One song in particular stands out and I just had to post the lyrics to my blog. It's a must do.....today....right now. What's ironic is.....I think I've posted this song before. If I didn't post the lyrics....I had the music playing on the blog. One or the other....but anyway, if you haven't checked it out.....(the CD has been out for a while, it's not new) I highly recommend you listen to it. It's so calming, so relaxing and the song "I Wish" from her Audience of One CD- will truly touch you, especially if you have little ones..... if you have any loved ones for that matter. But oh how it blesses me. The lyrics are as follows:

I’d give you the moon
But you’d never know the warmth of the sunshine
I’d give you the world
But exactly what would that do
I’d promise you wings to fly
But how would you ever learn to run
So I wish you all you need
To be more than I could be
This is what I wish for you
I wish you rainy days
So you can know the beauty of a clear blue sky
I wish you falling leaves
So you'd understand that seasons change
And if I gave you the mountains
Would you learn how to climb?
I pray you’ll always see
The forest through the trees
This is what I wish for you
This is what I wish for you
If I could I’d say the word
And chase your fears away
And I’d stay right by your side
And point the way that you should take
But this is your life
This is your story
And when all is done and said
Say you lived with no regret
I wish you ocean breeze
And rivers that bring you everything you need
I wish the air you breathe
Is all that you’ll ever need
And I wish you nights of love
And days of joy
And shoulders when you cry
And just enough hellos
To get you through goodbye
This is what I wish for you
I pray one day you’ll have a home
With arms that open wide
And you’ll have someone who loves you
Always by your side
And when you lose your will to try
I wish you wings to fly
I wish you wings to fly
I wish you everything you need
This is what I wish for you
This is what I wish for you
