Connected


"Connected", my new single, is finally finished!  Connected is a special song meant to encourage those who have lost a child. In 2007 I miscarried two babies and as a way to grieve, I started to write a song. Unable to finish it, I put it away until 2010 when a friend had a stillborn baby boy named Liston.  I was asked to sing at his memorial service and knew I had to finish the song.  This year I was finally able to record it. It's my prayer that God uses this song to encourage anyone who has lost a child or is grieving.  I believe God will make good out of what Satan meant for harm!

I would like to make a free download of "Connected" available to anyone who has lost a child.  To receive your free download, simply email me at pointpromotions@windstream.net and I will send you the link.  May you be encouraged!

Connected (lyrics) 

The first place you call your home will be heavenly...why did you leave me suddenly?                            The first face you'll recognize will not be mine but you'll be mesmerized by someone so divine
            The first meal your mouth will taste is fit for a king, you never will go hungry
            The first sound your voice will make will not be a cry, they'll never pacify.  Let your praise song amplify  
             But my heart is aching I don't want to let you go but it comforts me to know

Chorus- The tender fingers that touch your face are the same gentle ones that will wipe my tears so far away...I know you're okay

The loving arms that are holding you are the same strong ones that will carry me through the darkest night...I will be alright

You're in good hands and so am I...as we cling to Jesus...and hold on tight...we'll stay connected

The first steps your feet will take will be strong and sure, no wobbly knees but steady
The first time you laugh out loud will be so sweet you'll have joy complete never pain, tears or defeat

Chorus- The tender fingers that touch your face are the same gentle ones that will wipe my tears so far away...I know you're okay

The loving arms that are holding you are the same strong ones that will carry me through the darkest night...I will be alright

Bridge- I can just imagine you singing in the children's choir, running down the streets of gold.  And as you're laughing with your new friends and swimming in the crystal sea, please stop!  And think of me.

Chorus- The tender fingers that touch your face are the same gentle ones that will wipe my tears so far away...I know you're okay

The loving arms that are holding you are the same strong ones that will carry me through the darkest night...I will be alright

You're in good hands and so am I...as we cling to Jesus...and hold on tight...cling to Jesus and hold on tight...we'll stay connected...We'll be connected
