Here's the rules: If you had to pick three songs to listen to--before never being able to listen to music ever again--what would you pick? Please note - you’re not dying or going deaf or anything like that.. you can just never listen to music ever again. It can be anything you like. For any reason.
Jenny tagged me back in February so you know I've been thinking long and hard about this. Hey, I take my homework assignments seriously! I had one song picked out like that *snapping fingers* but the other two took some time.
The first song is One More Day by Diamond Rio and features the poem: The Last Time. In some ways I am fortunate enough to have a daughter who has almost lost her life numerous times and is considered terminally ill because it causes me to pause and think "what if this is the last day I have with her here on earth?" My husband's job is a dangerous one and he has come home many times and has said, "God protected me today". We should all live life as if it is our last - smell the flowers, enjoy the beauty in nature, spend time with our loved ones, smile more and say "I love you" as often as we can.
The next song is You Raised Me Up. I love this song - it not only reminds me of my family but of my faith in Christ. He raises me up whenever I feel overwhelmed. He has comforted me during the darkest times when my daughter has been fighting for her life and He has assured me that even if she does pass on, she will be in a wonderful, peaceful place and He will sustain me.
And lastly, this song could have been written specifically for Jessica and me. I sang this song to her at a church talent show several years ago and dedicated it to her on our family website. JENSENLAND- Jessica's journey with CHD "
