June - FBP Challenge -


Welcome back to the Faith Based Challenges of 2013! 
This year I'm sharing some of my favorite songs with you 
to encourage you to create your own faith based pages
– whether scrapbook pages, art pages, or journaling pages –
create whatever you’re led to do! 
And I’d love to have you share them with me! 
I know I've shared before that
the Summer of 2007 was a tough time for us as a family. 
One or both of our parents was hospitalized for 12 weeks --
before our dad passed away -
The Lord gave this album to me to listen to while on the road 
 back and forth and back and forth
[and back and forth]
 – and it spoke to my heart. 
I love to listen to it still. 
So I want to share some of my favorites with you this year!

Baby Girl
is one of my all-time favorites -
It really speaks to how preciuos we are in God's sight - 
[And I especially love the part about my sister letting me vent my heart - 
I am so blessed to have her in my life!!!]
The lyrics are below -

  I've got a little friend
Her age is 4 plus ten
She calls me on the phone crying now
and then
She says, "My mamma just won't listen
My daddy still is missin'
I don't feel I am nothing of value or worth"

Chorus
I say, "Baby girl get a hold of yourself
Baby girl don't you know your wealth
You're a diamond hiding on a shelf
Baby girl, Baby girl
Baby girl don't you know who you are
God has made you a shining star
A little light is brighter than the dark
Baby girl, Baby girl"
 
I call my sister friend
I'm crying and whining again
She lets me vent my heart
Before the healing starts
(And I say) my children just won't listen
My paycheck still is missin'
And every little thing is working my nerve
(She says)

Chorus
I say, "Baby girl get a hold of yourself
Baby girl don't you know your wealth
You're a diamond hiding on a shelf
Baby girl, Baby girl
Baby girl don't you know who you are
God has made you a shining star
A little light is brighter than the dark
Baby girl, Baby girl"
