Breath of Heaven

Christmas is over. I am hoping to put the Christmas tree away soon along with all the other Christmas decorations. I cannot believe that it has come and gone. Time flies by. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were putting the Christmas tree up... listening to Christmas music. My favorite Christmas CD is Amy Grant, Home for Christmas. I have listened to it every Christmas for the last 12 years and I know all the songs by heart. But this year, it was different. As Breath of Heaven started to play, and I started to sing along, tears started coming, "This is my prayer." The Lord knows what an amazing journey He has for me, He chose me to be Nichole's mom, and for that I am deeply thankful.
Breath of Heaven (Ellen's song)
I have traveled, on a selfish life
Now I am weary, with a babe with Downs
So I wonder, what good I've done
Holy Father, you have come, and chosen me now
to love on Nichole
I am waiting, in a silent prayer
I am frightened, by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now, be with me now
Breath of Heaven, hold me together
Be forever near me, breath of heaven
Breath of heaven, lighten my anxiousness
Pour over me your holiness, for you are holy
Breath of heaven
Do you wonder
As you watch my faith
If a wiser one, should have had my place
But I offer all I am
For the richness of your plan
Help me be strong, help me
Isaiah 41 :13 says "For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, 'Do not fear; I will help you."
I offer all that I am, and I am certain that the Lord will be with me, He is my help. What a comfort to know that the Lord holds me by my right hand.


  1. Love all the pictures and your song Ellen! I thought of you often while I was in Iowa for Christmas. I wish we could have somehow seen each other but Christmas is about family which is great but makes life crazy. Love you all lots and lots! I'm continuing to pray for you.

  2. Ellen,
    This is beautiful! It is touching to see how you changed the lyrics to fit your life with Nichole. What a blessing.

  3. That made me cry. I love that song, too. -- And on a lighter note, I need to take my Christmas tree down, too! hee's only February!
