my glory baby

been thinking a lot about sadie these past couple of days. i've been remembering her, missing her and praising God for her...even when i don't understand.

those who know me, know that i LOVE music. i'm very affected by it. very. my emotions get entangled with certain songs and whenever i hear them, they bring me back to a certain time, a certain place and the emotions i was feeling at that time.

at sadie's memorial service, good friends of ours performed 'glory baby' by watermark. this song will always remind me of sadie and bring back all of my complex emotions i'm feeling during this time of grief and of the time i got to spend with my sweet girl on this earth. it also reminds me of the truth that jeff and i have been holding on to. i think the lyrics explain it so well...

Glory Baby by Watermark

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear? You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you

But baby let sweet Jesus hold you ‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing- That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know

  1. I LOVE this song. I love Sadie...and I love you. This song makes me think of her and of Aidan too. I don't get sad when I hear it though. It usually makes me reflectively peaceful and joyful. Hang in there are doing so well, even in the darkest of times. God is faithful and makes you stronger than you ever thought you could be, huh?
