Comments

Wow! What meaning in a song I've never heard on radio. This comment will get as old as today's news, but I hope an NBC sports commentator seeking meaningful comment from a hurting Olympian recently might get a blessing, rather than a "social media curse" from hearing this poignant, Godly piece...and have her life changed
I can't help but to keep saying something about this song. I rarely listen to gospel music, but this is a great song. My comments may get old, but the song doesn't.
I just heard this song again. It's been a year. I forgot how powerful this song really is.
@ Mr Gibson - The service will be hard either way. Play the song if it is meaningful to you. It's a beautiful song. May you find peace and see the beauty of her transition when it happens.
It was written just for you Mr. Gibson! Hang in there.
This song epitomizes my wife's struggle with Alzheimer's for the last 12 years. I am considering using at her memorial service though know it would be hard for some to hear. I just wonder the story behind why the song was written and for who.
Here's a song that breaks your heart and makes you feel better all at once?
