about

In January 2009, Dara Hallett and I toured together for three, very cold Saskatchewan winter weeks. It was delightful. We ended by recording our live concert in Moose Jaw.

Track Name: Love Survives
Daddy walked those country miles to see his blue-eyed blond
The magic in her Texas smile had him spellbound
As autumn leaves were falling, heart-to-heart they pledged
To cherish one another for always

Mama and Daddy loved each other through the good and bad
When they started out together love was all they had
It wasn't always easy, this melding of two lives
But because of their commitment, love survives

Courtship days were spent in spinning dreams that seemed so real
But reality put wrinkles in that fabric of ideals
Many times they'd lay it down and dampen it with tears
Then with the warmth of love they'd iron it out

Mama and Daddy loved each other through the good and bad
When they started out together love was all they had
It wasn't always easy, this melding of two lives
But because of their commitment, love survives

Whatever comes I'll stand by you 'cause I have seen love work
It melts icy feelings and it cools off heated words
It warms the heart with tenderness and binds our hearts as one
This kind of love will always see us through

Our love will go the distance
Though the dusty road is long
May our children and their children sing this song ...

Mama and Daddy loved each other through the good and bad
When they started out together love was all they had
It wasn't always easy, this melding of two lives
But because of their commitment, love survives
Track Name: Let the Rest of the World Go By
With someone like you
A pal so good and true
I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find
A place that's known to God alone
Just a spot to call our own

We'll find perfect peace
Where joys never cease
Out there beneath the kindly skies
We'll build a sweet little nest
Somewhere out in the west
And let the rest of the world go by.
Track Name: Child of My Heart
VERSE 1 (Birth Mother)
When I found out about you, it all felt so wrong
Choosing to give you life, I had to be strong
Unsure of your future and what I should do
I cannot keep you, I want the best for you
I cling to the promise that God will hold onto me
Now my heart is breaking as I wait to set you free

CHORUS
Child of my heart,
You have always been a part of me

VERSE 2 (Adoptive Mother)
I've prayed for this moment, I've waited so long
Yearning to meet you, and sing you your song
Perfectly made, softness to hold,
My gift from heaven, my heart overflows
As she felt you grow inside, Your life was a mystery
Now I'll watch you grow in life, As God holds your destiny

CHORUS
Child of my heart,
You have always been a part of me

BRIDGE
B: So I give you to the One who knows your name
A: And I give you to the One who formed your frame
both: And I give you all that I can give to you
B: In the end I have to give you up to Him
A: From the start I will give you up to Him

(both)
CHORUS 1
Child of my heart ,
You have always been a part of me (x2)
CHORUS 2
Child of my heart,
You will always be a part of me (x2)

Track Name: The Wonder In It All
In the morning light
With the sun streaming in
As I rise in the quiet
I am thankful
And as I enter the day
With a peaceful soul
Pressing close to your heart
I am thankful

Thankful for the little things
Thankful for the ordinary ways
That You put the wonder in it all

When the family's together
And the children are laughing
Oh, the things we remember
And we are thankful
We look back and we see
Just how far we have come
And the grace that has brought us here
And we are thankful to you

Thankful for the little things
Thankful for the ordinary ways
That You put the wonder in it all

And though at times we are sad
And we can't find our way
In the dark we know you are there
And we are thankful to You
So we wait for the dawn
To rise in the morning
Mercy of a newn day
And we are thankful to You

Thankful for the little things
Thankful for the ordinary ways
That You put the wonder in it all
Track Name: Here (I Will Stay)
Like a distant echo from an old desire
The western coast tantalizes me
The place that tempts me is the place that taught me
Taught me to stay and not to go away

And the wind blows down
Howling through the coulees
And the train rolls by
Shaking walls and windows
And it's here, here is where I'm staying
And it's here, here is where I'm living

I remember how I found my voice
In the lovely choir of community
So now I speak and write and I sing my songs
For the place I have chosen to belong

And the wind blows down
Howling through the coulees
And the train rolls by
Shaking walls and windows
And it's here, here is where I'm staying
And it's here, here is where I'm living

When the storms grow
I'll be a tree on the prairie
When the storms grow
I'll be a tree on the prairie
When the storms grow
I'll be a tree on the prairie
I will stand, I will stay strong and sure
I will stand, I will stay strong and sure

When the wind blows down
Howling through the coulees
And the train rolls by
Shaking walls and windows
It's here, here is where I'm staying
It's here, here is where I'm living
Oh it's here ...
