Missing Christa on a Rainy Day

Chloe is playing Chris Tomlin's CD again. It always reminds me of the last few weeks , and days we spent with Christa. So many of the songs were so appropriate for what we were experiencing then. This song "The Way I Was Made" always makes me think of our last day with Christa and how I need to continue living my life.

Caught in the half-light,
I'm caught alone,
Waking up to the sunrise and the radio,
Feels like I'm tied up, what's holding me?
Just praying today will be the day I go free

I want to live like there's no tomorrow
I want to dance like no one's around
I want to sing like nobody's listening
Before I lay my body down
I want to give like I have plenty
I want to love like I'm not afraid
I want to be the man I was meant to be
I want to be the way I was made

Made in your likeness,
Made with Your hands
Made to discover who You are
And who I am
All I've forgotten help me to find
All that You've promised let it be in my life


"Clearly, accomplishement in life cannot be measured in terms of years alone. It often happens that those that die young have accomplished more than others who live to old age. Even infants, who sometimes have been with their parents only a few days, or even hours, may leave profound influences that change the entire course of the life of the family. And undoubtedly, from the Divine viewpoint, the specific purpose for which they were sent into the world was accomplished. It is our right neither to take life prematurely, nor to insist on its extension beyond the mark that God has set for it."
