He Carries Me

In Honor of one year without Olivia (05.14.09) ~

There were photographs I wanted to take; things I wanted to show you....

:: my niece and daughters, except for Olivia ::

:: an (almost) family Christmas picture ::

People say that I am brave but I`m not. Truth is I`m barely hanging on.
But there`s a greater story, written long before me, because He loves you like this.


So I will carry you, while your heart beats here.
Long beyond the empty cradle, through the coming years.


I will carry you, all my life.
And I will praise the One who`s chosen me to carry you.


Such a short time, such a long road. 



All this madness, but I know 


 that the silence has brought me to His voice and He says....


I`ve shown her photographs of time beginning, walked her through the parted seas, 


 angel lullabies, no more teary eyes.





Who could love her like this?




P. S. These words are taken from the lyrics of the song "I Will Carry You" by Selah based on Audrey Caroline's story, which you can read about at Bring the Rain. I think these simple words sum up the course of this last year better than any earthly words written by me could.
