Savannah's Song

Here we go… July 18, 2011

Well, it’s official.  I’m starting a blog.  This is somewhat awkward for me, considering I am a pretty closed person to most.  This “venture” began after my husband, Chris, recently re-wrote a song about our firstborn daughter that we lost at birth – “Savannah’s Song.”  It’s been 15 years since he wrote it.  We had it duplicated on cassette tapes – yes, you heard that right.  At the time, there were several hospitals and grief centers that used the song to help couples that had recently suffered the same type of loss.  As time went on, people would get in touch with us, and we had nothing to give them.  So, we wanted to “update” the song, and make it available to others.  It might sound strange, but I’m very excited to see this song come back to life.  I find some healing and joy in hearing Savannah’s name.  I’m always glad to tell her story, though many think it might be a tender subject for us.  It has definitely been easier as time has passed, but there will always be an ache for her.

I’m starting this blog in a hotel room in Nashville, TN.  We just finished the song today at the studio.  Kids are asleep, Chris is out, and it’s just me and the computer.  I feel a real sense of excitement – hoping that the song can help others deal with their loss… I want to be a good steward of our experience.  God did amazing things during that season – I wouldn’t trade that time for anything.  Not sure how this blog will “evolve.”  We’ll just see what happens.  🙂

    I’m so excited you are doing this. You have such an amazing story of the faithfulness of God through the difficult times. How He walked with you and gave you and Chris strength for each day is a testimony of what He will do when we allow Him to help us and guide us. May the Lord bless your efforts.

    Welcome to the blogging world. It’s interesting how life twists and turns and the things we do that we could not normally imagine. It is through our sharing in life about the reality of life that new life can be spoken into others. I have a blog but it’s really for me to just get stuff out of my head. Hard to believe it’s been that long….I think I feel old. (c: I’m looking forward to hearing the new release.

  3. Will be interested to see where this leads for you and your family. Love you guy! Susan
