My Boy, He is Song-Worthy.





I wrote this song last night for Ezra.

This is really rough recording of it... It's called 'A Different Tune'. Enjoy!




**edited to add lyrics**

You're dancing to a different tune
Yes you are, Yes you are.
You're swaying to a different tune
Yes you are, Yes you are.

And all the people in the town will know
there's the boy who walks a different road.
All the children in the street will see
that there's the boy with magic dancing feet...

Because you're dancing to a different tune
yes you are, yes you are.
And you'll lead them in a different tune
yes you will, yes you will.

Don't forget about your different song,
honor it with all your life.
And teach them all a different sway
transforming mourning into light...

This dance will take your life away
to the most amazing place!

This tune will set your life apart-
and it will make room for your heart.

All the lonelies in your path will cry.
Your simple dance will open their eyes.
All the people will gather just to see
the little boy who's lost in jubilee.

Emery--this is the most beautiful son g I've ever heard in my entire life! Seriously--what a beautiful song. It's amazing to me how much of an encouragement you are through your blog...you touch hearts. While I was listening to this song...I had this image in my head of Jesus singing this song over all his children...

absolutely beautiful.

I'm not a mom yet to my own children (I have grown stepchildren), but I hope to share something priceless like this to all of my kids. Emery, you are creative and you inspire me as I follow your adventures on your blog. Thanks for opening up and sharing. You call it vulnerability but I see you as courageous!

Emery Jo,
You make my heart smile. I love listening to your voice and I think Ezra is a very lucky boy to have such an amazing mother...who has taught him how to dance to a different tune. He is only who he is in part because of you my darling....A-M-A - Z-I-N-G...amazing!

Love you...LOTS Harmony
