Several years ago, "Blessed Be Your Name" became the Schwamb theme song. I remember singing along to it on a new CD the night that Tim and I rushed to the NICU to see Lauren before she had emergency surgery.
Later, we used the song to help tell Lauren's story for Defining Moments. (The video is included on my very first blog post here. If you haven't seen it before, I'd highly recommend grabbing the nearest box of Kleenex before you watch.)
When Lauren and I were in the hospital, it was one of the songs on my iPod that I played most frequently. While I was singing last week, I remembered the state-of-the-art audio equipment I used for our Sunday morning worship times in the hospital:
Last Sunday, I was surrounded by hundreds of people worshipping God. Lauren had hurried happily down the hall to her Bible class, Brennan had joined a handful of friends in Kids' Worship, and Addison was singing with Tim on the praise team. I am truly blessed!
