When Love Takes You In

The song When Love Takes you in by Steven Curtis Chapman stirs my soul. I can't help but get teary eyed every time I hear it. It makes me think so much of our girls -- especially as the photos sent to us by my bloggy friend Renee are still so fresh in my mind. Seeing photos of our wee girls holding the dresses we sent, bright pink hairbands in their hair and studying the photo album we sent them has me wondering what they are thinking. Bella is so serious! Being the oldest, I think she feels very strongly that she is in charge of her sisters. (We're going to have some work there on teaching her is okay to be a kid). I'm not sure Bright Eyes fully comprehends what is going on, but you can see that she's definitely thinking. She's far more serious than wee Peanut who is all smiles. I'm sure Peanut grasps more than we realize, but she's young enough to just roll with whatever comes her way. I know it's pretty hard to tell from photos what they're actually going to be like, but it's kind of how we feel when we look at their precious faces. We are all very much taken with our ebony haired daughters/sisters.

Anyways, the lyrics...

I know you’ve heard the stories
But they all sound too good to be true
You’ve heard about a place called home
But there doesn’t seem to be one for you
So one more night you cry yourself to sleep
And drift off to a distant dream

Where love takes you in and everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in

And somewhere while you’re sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like the rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost in what will be

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart

And this love will never let you go
There is nothing that could ever
cause this love to lose its hold

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in it takes you in for good
When love takes you in


And here's the video if you care to watch it...

  1. I love that song! We used it as the song for Jay-R's dedication at church. With that song playing and pictures of our first experiences with him, it was very touching. It still brings tears to my eyes. I hope your adoption process moves along quickly!

  6. Oh Deborah,

    What an emotional journey for me to see these beautiful photos along with this song! Then I must wonder how much more heightned your emotions are or have been for quite some time as you wait for your daughters to join your family.

    Praying for you.
