The Afters - Light Up The Sky

My dear brother tuned me into this song. The first time I heard it, I wept. There are so many dear friends of mine, Amber, Johanna, and girls I know of, Kim, and Christie, and Allison, who have lost a child\children. When I heard this, I just thought, "there is nothing that can separate us from the love of God"...Here are the lyrics:
When I'm feeling all alone and so far to go,
The signs are nowhere on this road guiding me home,
When the night is closing in,
It's falling on my skin,
Oh God will you come close
Light, light, light up the sky
Light up the sky to show me you are with me,
I, I, I cant deny
I cant deny,
Oh, I cant deny that you are right here with me.
You've opened my eyes, so I can see you all around me.
Light, light, light up the sky
Light up the sky to show me you are with me.
When the stars are hiding in the clouds
I don't feel them shining
When I cant see beyond my doubt
The silver lining
When I've almost reached the end
Like a flood you're rushing in
Love is rushing in
Light, light, light up the sky
Light up the sky to show me you are with me
I, I, I cant deny
Oh, I cant deny that you are right here with me
You've opened my eyes so I can see you all around me
Light, light, light up the sky
Light up the sky to show me you are with me
So I run straight to your arms
You're the bright and morning Sun,
To show Your love, there's nothing You wont do
repeat chorus

I was so touched, and moved by this song. My brother had told me of his young professor, 37, that took his life last week, and I thought how tragic, how so sad because He's right here, right there, all around us. He loves us more than we can fathom. Here's a verse that Pastor Chris mentioned a few weeks ago, Psalms 71:20 NIV "Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth, you will again bring me up" in another version, it says, "You got me when I was an unformed youth, God, taught me everything I know. Now I'm telling the world of your wonders; I'll keep at it til I'm old and gray. God, don't walk off and leave me until I get out the news, of your strong right arm to this world, news of your power to the world yet to come, Your famous and righteous ways, Oh God!" There's so much pain and suffering here, but as I heard Sherrie Burgess say the other day, God continues to teach me that this world is going to let us down and disappoint us and show us how imperfect it is, and that's true.
Tomorrow the boys are having surgery. Luke is having his ear tubes put in, and Tobi is having the blood vessels in his nose cauterized and they'll check for polyps, hopefully to stop the excessive nose bleeds he's been having over the past year. I know it's minor surgery for both, but being put to sleep is still dangerous. Lord, you are in control and I trust You. They are in your hands, as they were first Yours. Tobi has only been back to school since last Thursday and so it would be a week tomorrow. I'll be getting Luke's birthday party ready, Tobi's after that, planning Kelly's bridal shower at work, while trying to get the house ready to paint and plan to have a yard sale...I'm gonna be busy! I'm still crazy about my Twilight Saga and listen to the books most days while I'm working away, as it seems to keep me at my desk working more efficiently! Well, I know it's been a while since I've posted an entry so my next will be of picks. I still cant get video going!

Faithfully His,
