Graduation Season

This is graduation season. Melony and I have been watching students graduate since we began working with them in 1984. It is so exciting to see them walk across that stage, budding like roses, open to the world with the fragrance of hope. They have so many plans and dreams ready to burst into time. Their joy is contagious.  This year the Webers are celebrating the graduation of our own Meagan, the last of our brood to jump from our nest and spread her wings. I see her courage and sense of adventure, and it inspires me to live the same way. The song lyric below describes her impending leap into the sky. Can you tell I am proud?


 

 

SHE HAS WINGS 

  She stands on the edge without trembling. 
A fall now could take her life. 
She steps out in peaceful remembering 
How it feels to feel only wind and light. 
  
There's no suicidal sensation. 
There's no sense of danger at all 
Just a vision of earth moving closer 
As she reaches out and catches her own fall. 
  
She has wings. She can fly. 
It's a long way down, 
But she was born to sweep the sky. 
There may be a fear of falling, 
But hope is a powerful thing. 
Her heart can hear it calling. 
And she has wings. 
  
She thinks of the ones who would join her 
And wonders at the ones who are afraid. 
Did they give in to fear and turn faithless? 
Did their safety net turn into a cage? 
  
She swims on the wind spread beneath her. 
She dances the arc and the dive. 
Her courage, like prayer, soars through heaven, 
Believing it's good to be alive. 

She has wings. She can fly.  
It's a long way down,  
But she was born to sweep the sky.  
There may be a fear of falling,  
But hope is a powerful thing.  
Her heart can hear it calling.  
And she has wings. 

You can hear these lyrics sung with the music on my "Many Mountains" album in the Store.

    Indeed she is ready to fly having been fully equipped to do so by her amazing parents who have lived their lives knowing no fear because walking in faith leaves no room for fear. Meagan will soar in NYC and I can't wait to hear all about her "ventures." Beautiful song written by a lovely man.?
