all of me

I dare you to listen to this song with foster parenting in mind (although I am positive the lyrics are about something else entirely) and not tear up.  It might be physically impossible.  Seriously.  Every word was written seemingly from my soul.  God has been busy teaching me many things.  He is working in my heart and My Love's heart and our marriage and our home.  He is turning over the junk drawer and asking us to deal with everything that falls to floor.  It is a strange place to be knowing full well that obedience to God includes our broken hearts.  More than anything God wants us BOTH to die to self and love with reckless abandon.  No matter the tears, the pain, the heartache.  It hasn't been easy.  It won't be easy.  But God is equipping us and I am overwhelmed by his love and gentle guidance.  Completely.  More to come.

I love this song! I heard on KLOVE that this song was written when the singer, Matt Hammitt, learned his son would be born with a severe heart defect. He talks about how he decides to love him completely......I shouldn't have tried to type this while listening to the song...excuse me while I grab a tissue, I can't even see the keyboard...
