writing for children

Seriously, you have to hear this…

I know I have been off my blogging schedule for a couple of weeks, but I’m perfectly fine with that. I expect that the few folks who read my blog are, too. If not, raise your hand and I will send you a virtual hug and calorie-free chocolate. Then you can’t help but forgive me. 🙂

And since I’m off schedule anyway, I’m sharing a video that has really struck a chord with me. I’m putting the words below the video in case you want to see them. And after you hear the fabulous message of this song – I’ll have a link for more of her youtube music…cause I know you are going to want to hear more!

You can find more of this artist’s music HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM74J0hGoeY

Mud Song Laura Elizabeth Thornton & Timothy Floyd Thornton © 2008 Bricklayer Music Publishing (ASCAP)CCLI song # 5588794
isn’t it just like you to invite me into a warm house
isn’t it just like you to stroke my hair as I fall asleep

Father you made me yours
Found my orphan heart and brought it home
and I’m safe here and I sing

isn’t it just like you to make a slave into your daughter
isn’t it just like you to make wine out of dirty water

I used to live in chains
my wounds bled to the ground
my bed was out in the rain
my hair in knots and soaked in mud

but you took my hand
and you led me in
and you combed my hair
you kissed my skin
and you gave me food
and you made me yours
you made me yours
you made me yours

    1. YAY! The Lord is using this song to minister to me, too…and has been since I heard it a couple of days ago. So many ways this can be “heard”. Physically an orphan and/or spiritually and orphan… wow. Just wow.
