You Raise Me Up, A Song For Moms

This song was meant for Mothers day so… here it is. Happy belated Mothers day! I hope you were/are blessed!

I want to dedicate this song to all you amazing moms and on behalf of your children I say, “Thank you for all you have done, are doing, and will do for your children. You make the world a better place by all you do. You are the often unsung heroes.”

Well, I’m going to take a moment to sing for you all! I’d like to dedicate this one to my wife who is an amazing mom. I tell her that often. She sacrifices so much (her sleep mostly these days as we have a 3 week old) and loves our children well.

I’d also like to recognize my own mother who helped me be who I am today. (I credit her for all the good and take personal responsibility for any of the bad.)

My day:

It has been a crazy day around here. I got to lead worship for the 11 am 2nd service fellowship at United Methodist Church in Neenah. That was a really blessed time and I really enjoyed sharing music with them.

Then the whole family got together for birthday celebrations and Mothers day. I had a little trouble joining in the fun. Why? Because I was disappointed with myself. I wish I talked more and related better with people. So often I just simply don’t know what to say or how to show these people that I love them. Ever feel that way?

It just felt like a missed opportunity for something more, something better, a deeper conversation or connection or something. I thought about how that could have been the last interaction I had with them. I thought about how it isn’t guaranteed that any of us would make it home alive. We may not have another chance at this. “Seize the day”, right? What will that look like next time?
