I Can Only Imagine

Seven years ago this week, I was on bedrest, anxiously wondering when my baby was going to arrive.

I had blood pressure problems, and was so nervous about giving birth, the baby being okay, everything going fine.

I was driving in the car somewhere and this song came on the radio. I sang along and had goosebumps. Though this song is about Jesus, I thought some of the lyrics applied to my thoughts on this baby.

"I can only imagine, what it will be like, when I walk by your side..."
"I can only imagine what my eyes will see, when your face is before me..."
"What will my heart feel....in awe of you be still?"...
"Will I sing hallelujiah, will I be able to speak at all?"...

I had goosebumps and tears as I drove, imagining what it would be like to meet my baby after the long road. The crazy doctor. The high blood pressure. I could only imagine. And my imagination did not do justice for just how amazing it was when that little girl was in my arms...

Listen to it once, and imagine meeting your baby for the first time.

Listen to it again, and think of Jesus (the way the song was intended).

Either way...it's moving. oxoxox

Awe, Ang, that's so sweet! I have definitely not every thought of that when I heard the song but you're so right, it fits! I love how a song can just touch us in just the way we need it.
