The Power of a Song

I heard a song today on the radio, one of many that I absolutely love and it just tugged at my heartstrings so I decided to add it to my list. I have a list compiled in my head and heart that remind me of Grace and Olivia. The list grows nearly every week, as there are always new songs coming out that I can somehow relate to them. I wanted to share my list with you but really, there are so many songs. I do want to share my most favorite one with you. I heard, really heard the words to this song about a year after the girls died. We sang it in my dad's church and I literally had to walk out because I started crying. The words never spoke to me before then. I picked this song also for my cousin Lance's funeral because truly the words just are SO meaningful and powerful. I miss my girls and I miss Lance so very much. Tonight, I just had to share this song and the most beautiful version I have ever heard.
