lyrics revisited

Wes King is one of my favorite Christian songwriters. I have grown up with his lyrics and perhaps some of you have as well. I posted these lyrics when we started our blog but for some reason the song is in my head again.

I know some of you are feeling or have felt this way before. Sometimes we just really miss LynnMarie and we can not wait to make her smile and hear her laugh and just enjoy her in her life. I can not imagine! Well, yes I can. I think bdAy parties and staying up late waiting for Santa, and going to church and her first prayers and meeting her cousins and our first Disney cruise and going to First Friday and her first day of school and playing the piano. Ok, I obviously have no problem dreaming and wishing.HeeHee!Until then, we will pray for her!

Once again over 10 years ago I heard this song and I cried. I prayed and hoped this would not be my song. Little did I know how these words would capture my heart and it would indeed become my song. I am thankful for songwriters and music who seem to put my thoughts on paper!

Thought You'd Be here by Now by Wes King (CD Room full of stories)

We thought you'd be here by now
Your mother and I
We're praying through our tears that somehow
We might hear your sweet cry
Have we waited too long
It's getting harder to be strong
Is there something we've done wrong

But if you like dancing
I'll make it rain rhythm, and rhyme, and melodies, child
And if you like dreaming
Your mother will make your imagination run wild
Somehow, we thought you'd be here by now

We have a room just for you upstairs. It's right down the hall
So we'll be close should you ever get scared
We'll come when you call
It's a room full of stories
Waiting to be told
Longing to behold

And if you like laughing
I'll paint you a circus of smiles and ferris wheels, dear
And if you like living
Your mother will fly you to worlds both far and near


I never knew the silence could make me so deaf
I never knew that I could miss someone I've never met
Miss someone I haven't met yet

We'll be waiting

Oh how I remember God speaking to me about infertility long before I knew....Yes, the wait is long, but you will get there and it will all be worth it. We have been home with Emily for 6 months. I almost cried when we did our first family portrait, she called me momma;and REALLy understood that I am her mommy,she walked to the car from church holding mommy and daddy's hand.

God prepares us for our journey even before we know what is in store for us. The lyrics are wonderful. I can see how you would be touched by them.

Ok, I'm now a big pile of Goo! Praying that the time goes quickly till LynnMarie is in your arms. If you want a chuckle check out our grand daughter eating strawberries from the field.

Oh those lyrics do describe waiting mother's heart so well. Still praying and hoping for a speed up, but trusting that God's timing and plan is perfect.
