11.30.08

Matt's mom gave me a CD by Sandi Patti called "A Mother's Prayer". I guess my mother-in-law saw Sandi Patti in concert this past summer and fell in love with her sweet personality and pretty voice. The CD has the most beautiful song called "The Cradle Song" that I listen to constantly. The whole CD makes me cry, but this one is my favorite. I just read that she wrote it right after the birth of her daughter, Anna. My favorite part is when she sings, "Your eyes shine like your Father's, That nose looks just like me, I stare in awe and wonder, At such a mystery". It makes me so excited for the day when I'll get to watch my daughter sleeping, carefully admiring each little freckle, eyelash and baby wrinkle.

I really love the whole song-- each word has meaning and just gives me goosebumps!

I watch beside your cradle
Your face touched by the moon
My heart just aches and trembles
With all my love for you
Your eyes shine like your Father's
That nose looks just like me
I stare in awe and wonder
At such a mystery
How God can touch the love of a man and wife
And blossom it into the breath of life

Just look at this life
We want you to understand
You rest in His loving hands
For you are Jesus' little lamb

Our eyes are filled with dreaming
We want so much for you
But we might fail you often
Before your life is through
Only your Heav'nly Father
Can hear you ev'ry prayer
When we are just a mem'ry
Your Lord will still be there
So on our knees we pray this cradle song
That you'll always know the Lord will keep you strong
