I am currently working on some old songs, and getting them up to a standard to put into the “maybe I will record this” pile. I wrote a song a couple of years ago for my daughters. It is called “She Is”.
When I wrote it I wasn’t sure what was going to emerge, but what emerged was a song about what makes a woman beautiful and captivating. At the moment I have two girls who love to get muddy and don’t care if they don’t colour coordinate and have brushed hair. They love to laugh and rumble, and dig in the garden and go fishing at the river.
As I have been working through this song again, it has connected to me in a new way. It has reminded me about some truths for myself. I was looking at my hands yesterday, and realising that they look a lot older than the last time I looked! This song has come from deep within, and it is what I yearn to be seen as, regardless of my age or appearance. A woman of faith and substance, a woman of joy and dignity, a woman of God.
My prayer is that this song will connect with my girls when they are older, and remind them of my prayers for them.
