Life Goes On...


It has been a hard week for our family.  A lot of hard memories have been stirred up.  A lot of questions that may never have answers.  I felt led to share this song with you.  This is not easy for me, and maybe it is only meant for me...but I do hope it brings a blessing of hope to someone else who might be feeling the same way right now. 

I wrote this song 3 years ago.  It was the first Christmas since my brother's death and our new baby was born 2 weeks early.  Christmas morning my father held my newborn and while holding back tears he said, "This baby is helping us see that life goes on...".  God had perfect timing.  He knew we needed that reminder just in time for Christmas.

There are some days where I still need that reminder...


Life Goes On


Springtime flowers only bloom after the rain

Winter's grey skies always make room for the sun to shine


Life goes on, and life goes on

When it feels like I can't get off this floor

Still life goes on


Sweet new baby, comes through labor pains

Happy endings come when you've lived through a story to tell


Life goes on, and life goes on

When it feels like I can't get off this floor

Still life goes on

You gave us a hope

Death could not take away

You gave us hope

When you made a way


So now, my life goes on

and life goes on

When it feels like I can't get off this floor

Still life goes on...and on


Springtime flowers always bloom after the rain...

  2. That was beautiful! Something I needed to hear. It's hard to remmember that their are flowers after the rain. I don't know how much more rain I can handle, but I cling to the hope for flowers. Thank you.
