To All Of My More Than Friends

This morning I was driving to the one and only Walmart to hopefully finish up SOME of my Christmas shopping.  There was a song in my head that I couldn't get out.  I was singing it to myself and thinking of all of you dear friends of mine.  Before I left I had checked all of my bloggy friends' posts for the day.  On my music playlist pop up the song that was playing was Watermark's More Than You'll Ever Know.  It is one of my favorite songs of  all time.  It suits so many of you who are near and dear to me.  So I'm going to post the lyrics here and you can click on the song on my player down at the bottom of my blog if you want to hear it.

By Nathan & Christy Nockels

Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it's okay to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I've been near God
And that's the way it ought to be....

'Cause you've been more than a friend to me
You fight off my enemies
'Cause you've spoken the truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
Just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah

You had faith when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing
And all the while I'm hoping that I'll
Do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me
And that's the way it ought to be....

You have carried me
You have taken upon a burden that wasn't your own
And may the blessing return to you
A hundredfold, oh yeah
A hundredfold, oh yeah.

That pretty much says it all.  I love you, my friends!  May you all be blessed MORE than a hundredfold this Christmas.
