Movie making 101

First lesson: Windows Movie Maker is a pain. LOL!

Seriously, the video part is finished for Eddie's birthday video. I am working on the audio now. I think I will use Great is Thy Faithfulness sung by Selah (my most favoritest group in the WHOLE entire world) for the segment of the video from the NICU.

I found another Selah song that I like and am contemplating using. It's definitely a message I want to convey to Eddie, but it's about being in pain. The lyrics go like this:

One Thing I Know
Jason Alan Whitmore, Joel
Lindsey

Something in your eyes I see
Reminds me of what used to be
When i was still uncertain of the truth
Sleepless nights that turn to days
Alone inside an endless maze
Counting on someone to see me through

Chorus:
If there’s one thing I know,
You are never left alone
‘cause You can always call on Jesus’ name
If there’s one thing I pray,
It’s Jesus helps you find a way
To make a change and listen to Your heart
God will take away your pain
If you choose to let it go
If there’s one thing I know

How can I convince your heart
His light can find you in the dark
And only He can make your blind eyes see
For if we speak of lost things found
Of lives that have been turned around
Then tell me who knows better, child, than me?

(Repeat chorus)

Bridge: I would never stake my life on any lesser thing Than the cross of
Christ where he gave His life to ease my suffering.

(Repeat chorus)

Breaking down why I like this song... The something I see in Eddie's eyes; besides the fact that Eddie definitely physically has my eyes, while he has not yet committed an outright act of sin, he is sinful in his nature. And sadly, he gets that from me also. I know his dad contributed too, but...

Sleepless nights... hmmm, that's too easy of a joke.

Right now, Eddie does count on me and Ed to see him through. The only way we can do that is to point him towards Christ. God forbid something should happen to me or Ed or both of us. I want my son to know that no matter what, he can call on Christ. Even when Ed and I fail him, he can call on Christ.

More than anything though, if there's one thing I pray, it's that God will save my son and help him find his way to becoming a godly man.

Because I don't have godly parents and didn' have that growing up, I do wonder how I can convince Eddie's heart that His light can find him in the darkness. I have no clue. I can only share what I KNOW. And what do I know better than how my life has been changed -- hence the name reformed mama.

So, I can see how the song fits. Thoughts from the peanut gallery?

The song you picked sounds good.

I love Selah, too! They have great voices and they have the Hymn album which I love. I love, love old hymns and I am very happy when I can find currrent groups who remix them a bit.

I love it. And I love Selah too. Scary how much we are alike. Scarrrry.

And putting this comment here to save time LOL---but I'm totally ready for an 80's flashback. Big old sweaters and leggins??? Hide my fat. smack me silly, and call me Judy! :) I love it.

I will draw the line at leg warmers though.
