About a month ago, I was sitting in my car getting ready to attend a conference when a song came on the radio that made me stop in my tracks.
I’m not sure how long it’s been around, but Mark Harris’ Find Your Wings speaks the words of my heart for my amazing twin nieces and nephew (all currently age two and younger). As tears streamed down my cheeks, I realized that this song gives voice to the prayer my heart prays for these “littles,” as I sometimes call them collectively.
I’m obviously not their parent, but as their aunt I still hope and pray that they grow up with faith, love and joy.
My favorite part of the whole song is part of the chorus:
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams/And that faith gives you the courage/To dare to do great things
I’m here for you whatever this life brings/So let my love give you roots/And help you find your wings
To listen to the entire song (and see a really touching video):
