One of my dearest friends in the whole world became an ordained minister yesterday. We sang the following song during the service and it moved me so much, I felt compelled to share it here.
"I Am Willing"
There is hurting in my family There is sorrow in my town There is panic in the nation There is wailing the whole world round. Chorus (repeat after each verse): I am open and I am willing To be hopeless would be so strange We remember those who go before us So lift me up to the light of change. May the children see more clearly May the elders be more wise May the winds of change caress us Even though it burns our eyes. Give me a mighty oak to hold my confusion Give me a desert to hold my fears Give me a sunset to hold my wonder Give me an ocean to hold my tears.
