Love Them Like Jesus

Many of you know our two oldest girls were involved in a near fatal rollover back in August. Some of the lyrics in this song speak to the path Donna and I have been walking (Okay, crawling) the past few months...

By Friday August 20th I started to wain I was so tired, anxious, heartbroken and it was the first time I let it slip into thought that Donna may not live through this.

Donna woke up to my tear streaked face, I was holding her hand pushing her hair out of her face. She looked at me for a few seconds then asked if she was going to die? How are you supposed to respond to that when you are physically and mentally caving on the inside? Well my answer was don't cave, suck it up put the tears away and SHOW SOME FAITH. I did manage to find something to say, "God had his chance to take you home on Monday, you are stuck with me for a long time better get used to it. God has a wonderful plan for your life he is shaping you right now, figure out why!" She smiled and went back to sleep. She was looking to me, if she was going to make it she needed my help.

Lyrics...
The love of her life is drifting away
They’re losing the fight for another day
The life that she’s known is falling apart
A fatherless home, a child’s broken heart

You’re holding her hand, you’re straining for words
You’re trying to make sense of it all
She's desperate for hope, darkness clouding her view
She's looking to you

Just love her like Jesus, carry her to Him
His yoke is easy, His burden is light
You don’t need the answers to all of life’s questions
Just know that He loves her and stay by her side
Love her like Jesus
Love her like Jesus


The gifts lie in wait, in a room painted blue
Little blessing from Heaven would be there soon
Hope fades in the night, blue skies turn to grey
As the little one slips away

You’re holding their hand, you’re straining for words
You’re trying to make sense of it all
They’re desperate for hope, darkness clouding their view
They’re looking to you

Just love them like Jesus, carry them to Him
His yoke is easy, His burden is light
You don’t need the answers to all of life’s questions
Just know that He loves them and stay by their side
Love them like Jesus


Lord of all creation holds our lives in His hands
The God of all the nations holds our lives in His hands
The Rock of our salvation holds our lives in His hands
He cares for them just as He cares for you


So love them like Jesus, love them like Jesus
You don’t need the answers to all of life’s questions
Just know that He loves them and stay by their side
Love them like Jesus
Love them like Jesus

Happy Stamp Day, God Bless.
