New Again

When I became a mother, I suddenly found that I had a fresh appreciation of the cross. I've always been very tender when it comes to Jesus's suffering and death, but realizing that God had sent his only Son to earth - knowing that he would be beaten, tortured and ultimately die, touched me deeply. I can't imagine ever purposely choosing such a fate for my own child.

Music moves me in a way that written and spoken word never have been able to. I ran across this song last Easter, just a few months after I had Peanut. It brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it.

Take five minutes and listen here. It's worth it, I promise.
