These are songs that make me think of Luke.
This is my #1 Luke song. “Nothing is Wasted” by Jason Gray. Nothing, including the unbearably painful loss of my first son, will be wasted in His hands. “Every tear you cry will seed the ground where joy will grow.” “From the ashes, beauty will rise.” “What’s lost will be found again.”
“Homesick” by Mercy Me. The chorus was written after the loss of twins at 5 months by their close friends. He talks about the meaning behind it before they play it in this video.
“Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)” by Radney Foster and covered by the Dixie Chicks. “My love will fly to you each night on angel’s wings.” This one makes me think of the goodnight kisses Sam and I pray for God to send to Luke each night in his night-night prayers.
