And so it begins...

I have always wanted to blog, but didn't want the responsibility. I didn't want to have readers to impress on a daily basis. I am not a gifted writer, but I want to remember these years and still morn frequently the lost time since Dominic has been born that hasn't been recorded. When John and I were at the Newman Center, this song was our favorite. It reminds me of our gentle and loving God. The lyrics are beautiful and make me cry when I look into the faces of the gifts in our home. Here are the lyrics:

When My Heart Bleeds
Words and music by Eileen Weber

My child, I love you
I love you, I love you
My child, when My heart bleeds
Then your heart beats
You are mine

My God, I love You, I love You
I give my heart, my mind, my soul, my strength
My God, I cling to You, I sing to You
May my life be Yours in every way

I try so hard to please
And I don't know where to turn
And so I cry, O my God
I don't know what to do
I don't know where to go
Can You please help me?

My child, I'm here, I hear your cry
And you are right here in My heart
And when you cry, my heart is crying too
My heart bleeds just for you, rest in My mercy
