Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile know I desperately wanted a baby for a long time. There were many days of longing and tears of wanting before God brought Melody into my life. Now each day I breath words of thanksgiving as I hold her close, see her smile and hear her laugh.
(It is similar to my first year of college. I had finally found "my place." Each day I woke up with a song in my heart and a smile on my face, because of the drastic difference from the previous year at a rural high school where football and trucks were the main things. But I digress...)
There is a song that tells the story of Melody. It is by Waterdeep. We sing it in church from time to time. I seldom make it to the end of the song without tears streaming down my cheeks. Before Melody, I cried because I wanted her so much. Now that she's here, I cry for thanksgiving and awe. The words go:
You are so good to me
You heal my broken heart
You are my Father in heaven
They are simple but powerful. Another neat thing about the song is the bridge. It contains Melody's name, which seems fitting.
You are my strong melody
You are my dancing rhythm
You are my perfect song
And I want to sing forever
I want to make a something to hang on her wall that says,
"You are my strong Melody."
She has changed my life so much, and she is only five months old. I cannot imagine how I'll feel in the years to come as she continues to grow up.
