My Life Song

I love a good song. I'm inspired by a song I heard recently by Bethany Dillon called:  "You're the best song I've ever written"

I started thinking about my life as a song. My song started when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I had accepted Christ as a child; my mom made sure of that. But at sixteen I wanted an all-consuming relationship with Jesus. My husband Nick is a melody sung in harmony with my song. My kids, Nathaniel and Heidi, sprung up as minuets to my song as they dance into their own families and careers. I thank God for giving me a new song all those years ago. I'm thankful to God's spirit for keeping me in tune. My heart leaps when I think about the day when I will sing my song before My Jesus the Lover of my soul.
