Celtic Woman - A New Journey - You Raise Me Up

For my mom, who died when I was 14. Even though she's been gone for 40 years, her loving presence is still felt in my life. She raised me up "to more than I can be". I hope that you're proud of me, Mom. I miss you, and I sure could use your shoulder to cry on and your guidance right now as I "walk on stormy seas". Someday, we will be reunited - but in the meantime, please keep on praying for me and my family. I love you!

Hey, Miss Improper, I was going to tell her!! But since you're the bride.. I guess it's OK. *sigh*

Hope things are well with you, Val. Peace and blessings to you and your family!

P.S. -- On a personal note: We had to put our loving canine companion down yesterday. She was the sweetest dog I've ever known and whole family is terribly saddened by her passing. She was around before the first child and she was the best dog around kids. With us expecting our 4th in about 6 months, I know life will be different without her there.

Valerie!!! Oh my gosh - I just saw your comment from last night in my haloscan, but it's not showing up on my actual blog...

If you read my Oct 10 post, you'll see that Blogrolling.com went poof a couple of weeks back. I lost my blogroll and have been tyring to piece it back together in Blogger. I didn't necessarily remember all the blogs (or url's) of everyone I had listed. So you weren't not intentionally dropped.

Now that you've posted, I'll be adding you back!

ok... I'm a truck driver and I am not supposed to tear up when I look at video...

but I did...
My mom and dad are in Heaven, but are as near to my heart as can be. What a reunion that will be.

I found your blog through CWO and have been very blessed reading it. I was adopted when I was 6 months - long story - grew up in rough home.

My "adoptive" mom died just over 4 years ago when this song just came out by Selah, and I heard it on the radio as we were driving home from her funeral. It touched me so, as we did not have a good relationship, but God spoke thru to me in this song in Him raising me up despite what I had gone thru.

Isn't it neat to see how God uses the same song, in different and yet in the same way.

Thank you for sharing your story.
