No April Fools - We're Going Home!

So this will be my last post from the hospital today - no jokes here! We're going home soon :)

I wanted to leave you all with some song lyrics that have been coming to my mind a lot lately. Sometimes I sing them to Skylar (until she starts crying when I get out of tune or she gets bored, lol) but I thought they were worth sharing as Easter approaches... It's a song by Ginny Owens called "If You Want Me To" (Ginny Owens has a really cool story too, being blind and writing her own music and playing the piano - I was actually lucky enough to get to see her live at Clemson of all places and talk with her afterwards... a really cool experience). Anyway, enough rambling, lol. Here's the song:

The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise
You're not through with me yet
So if all of these trials bring me closer to You
Then I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When You lead me through a world that's not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'll never go alone

So when the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the sufferin' Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to

When I cross over Jordan, I'm gonna sing, gonna shout
Gonna look into your eyes and see you never let me down
So take me on the pathway that leads me home to you
And I will walk through the valley if you want me to

Yes, I will walk through the valley if you want me to
