"Your Hands"

Today is Mikey's birthday. She would've been 30 years old today. It's weird to know she will always be 19 in our mind's eye. Neil and I wonder what she would've looked like now, where she'd be living, what she'd be doing, etc. I know she's in a better place and I can't wait to see her again but sometimes I wish we could have just had one more birthday together.

I've fallen in love with a new song on K-LOVE called "Your Hands" by JJ Heller and it's awesome. The simple text, sparce chords of the guitar, hint of piano and ease of her voice. The chorus is such a great reminder that even when we are shaken, we never leave His hands.

"When my world is shaking, Heaven stands.....
When my heart is breaking, I never leave your hands."

I think about the time in my life when Mikey left and even though I strayed and turned my back on Him, He never once left me. Thank God He is such a forgiving, faithful Father who welcomed me back with open arms.
