"Designed by God"...
hear people talking about the flood gates opening up,
and every once and a while, you get to experience the
phenomenon for yourself. This was surely one of
was playing piano on a usual day in my usual “Getting
ready for Sunday mode.” Suddenly, this beautiful
music began to come from my tired fingers, and I began
to sing to the melody I was hearing. What was
this?... I thought.
my….the next emotions were so intense I nearly fell
off my bench!!! The Lord was giving me a graduation
song for my daughter and her classmates. With
graduation only a few weeks away, I thought…..Lord!
I didn’t think of this, and of course He said
“I DID.” My goodness, did I become emotional,
because surely…this was one of the most beautiful songs
that God has ever given me. I just sat there and
sobbed like a baby. The flood gates let loose
and I allowed myself to think about the things my heart
wanted to say, but I was too busy to hear. Once again,
God was in control. Our babies were growing up
and they needed to be blessed. I called the song
“Designed by God.”
a funny thing that I knew God was in control, because
my next thought was HOW oh HOW will I ever get this
done in time??? Enter Sharon Taylor and my husband,
Joe. Sharon did a record breaking, heart throbbing
job on the tracks and vocals, and Joe created the
beautiful video. This was nothing short of miraculous.
I scanned and tweaked more photos of the
graduates than I thought possible, and we had ourselves
a video for presentation at graduation. The only
way I can describe it is to say that it’s a “Ten Tissue”
song…. extremely moving and hauntingly beautiful.
a tremendous gift God has given to each of us. The children
and their families were blessed indeed, and it’s beyond
amazing to me.
