More Beautiful You

Do you know that song More Beautiful You by Jonny Diaz? Well, I really loved some of the lyrics in the chorus so I've wrote a version of the song for Carleigh. I kept the lyrics that I liked the same. Just sing it to the tune of the song (click the video to hear it). Every time I sing it (whether out loud or in my head), it brings me to tears! And these tears are not tears of sadness. They are the tears of a joyful and happy mother! I am so proud of my daughter! I love her so much! No words could ever describe the love I have in my heart for my daughter. :')



Little one in the womb just finding out bout you
Celebrating the great news
Mommy loves all your kicks and Daddy talks to you
But pretty soon we'd have to choose

Well little one growing big I wish the world could see
The joy we have in our hearts
It doesn't matter what they say cause we love you anyway
You're perfect just the way you are

There could never be a more beautiful you
We know that Heaven is your home but know that we love and miss you
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl, precious one, the dreams that we had for you
We'll never see come to be
And it was out of our hand for God had another plan
Only wanting us to wait and see

Well little girl of our hearts we never thought that this would come
The day we'd have to say goodbye
But we can promise you that we'll always cherish you
We just wish we could've heard you cry

There could never be a more beautiful you
We know that Heaven is your home but know that we love and miss you
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

We know that you are not too far
Up in the sky, our shining star
To change our path go another way
We really wish you could have stayed
Carry you to term with no regret
Your little life we won't forget
You disappeared in the middle of the night
But you didn't die you came to life
And by God's grace we'll see your face
You changed the way we look at this big world
And we'll never be as once before
So please wait for us at Heaven's door
Then we'll run at last to the arms of our baby girl

There could never be a more beautiful you
We know that Heaven is your home but know that we love and miss you
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you
There could never be a more beautiful you

Thats really beautiful. I was sucking back the tears the whole way through. I know she hears you sing it for her. I can just imagine what a adorable smile she has on her face.

Your alternate lyrics are really sweet! The theme of Jonny Diaz's song reminds me of Steven Curtis Chapman's song "Fingerprints of God," which really helped me when I was working on self-image problems. ~Debbie

No words can express how beautiful that was and I know she just loves hearing you sing it. You are brought to tears because of how close you are to her when you do, I have no doubt.

You are always in our prayers Holly!

I was wondering if it was ok with you to put a link at The Fort to your blog? Let me know.

Love and Prayers,
