A year ago a song was brought to my attention as I drove to the gym. I had heard it many times on our local Christian radio station. I even knew some of the lyrics. But I never paid much attention to it. Until this day a year ago.
I listened very carefully to the words. As I listened my heart sank. I began to cry. What a sad song. What a heart wrenching song. A father praying for his son, who is apparently sick. But with what?
"Will this be my prayer?" I thought. But I quickly got rid of the thought. Not MY son. But there was that tug...that something or SOMEONE saying "Yes, your son." I tried to ignore it....and I did this day. I took note of the song.....that was all. Took note of it.
What was the song? He's My Son by Mark Schultz. He wrote it after watching a family deal with their son's leukemia. It's a song/prayer any parent would sing for their child...boy or girl. I cannot listen to this song since that day a year ago without tears and sometimes sobs. So please don't play it in my presence just to watch me cry!!:-)
