Happy Mother's Day

One of the many things my parents have shared with us is a love for music.  With this, there are a handful of songs that move me to happy tears as I think of what my parents have been to me.  One is Josh Groban's - Raise Me Up.  But the song, It's Your Song, by Garth Brooks always makes me think of Mom.

I was always a shy kid who struggled in school and it never once occured to me that God could use me as he has.  But Mom had a different song for me -

It's Your Song

by Garth Brooks

Standing in the spotlight
On such a perfect night
Knowing that your out there listening
I remember one time
When I was so afraid
Didn't think I had the courage
To stand up on this stage
Then you reached into my heart
And you found the melody
And if there ever was somebody
Who made me believe in me
It was you
It was you

It was your song that made me sing
It was your voice that gave me wings
And it was your light that shined
Guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song

Every night I pray
Before the music starts to play
That I'll do my best and I won't let you down
And for all the times I've stood here
This feeling feels brand new
And any time I doubt myself I think of you

'Cause It was your song that made me sing
It was your voice that gave me wings
And it was your light that shined
Guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song

Dreams can come true
With God's great angels like you

It was your song that made me sing
It was your voice that gave me wings
And it was your light that shined
Guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song
It was your song
It's always been your song
