After receiving Gabe's fatal diagnosis, Kyle made a cd of music that really got us through that time. We often hear the same songs on our favorite station, The Word FM, but there is one song in particular that I would define as our Gabe Song. Our church started playing it, Revelation Song, during worship a few weeks ago, and the first Sunday we heard it, Kyle couldn't even stand. He quietly sat down and just wept. He later told me what he was thinking about, and it was so profound to me that I've been meaning to get on here to share it all with you...
First, here are the lyrics, straight from the book of Revelation:
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, Holy, Holy, is He.
Sing a new song, to Him who sits on Heaven's Mercy Seat
Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come.
With all creation I sing:
Praise to the King of Kings!
You are my everything,
And I will adore You.
Clothed in rainbows, of living color
Flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor, strength and Glory and power be
To You the Only Wise King.
Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your name
Jesus, Your Name is Power, Breath, and Living Water
Such a marvelous mystery.
So, after church Kyle explained to me that singing the song obviously made him think of our Gabe. But, more than that, it made him think about the fact that Gabriel is in Heaven, and all he does all day everyday is worship God. Kyle said that singing the song, and worshipping God, made him realize that he and Gabe were doing the exact same thing at the exact same time. To him, it made him feel closer to Gabriel than ever before. It took my breath away...
Here's the video, a beautiful version, in case you've never heard it:
We miss you, sweet baby Gabriel. Momma still thinks of you all the time. I cannot wait untit the day when we can all be together as a family again. KISSES.
