"To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling
Who told us we'd be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
We're asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it's unfair"
"This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We'd be held"
Held, Natalie Grant

What a very powerful poem....please keep in your prayers a family in Grand Junction that has lost their mom. She died of a long battle with cancer. She leaves 4 children and a very special husband.

That song has a totally knew meaning for me now. Wow. It's always been powerful but, I certianly have a deeper understanding of what the words can and do mean.
