I woke up singing this song this morning so I thought I should share.
I was feeling a bit down last night, so it was such a blessing to wake up with this song in my head! In addition to being a beautiful song in itself, it has such significant meaning in regards to a place that I am so passionate about.... The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp . Okay, so call me crazy--but I saw this as some kind of wonderful sign! About the crazy part--it wouldn't be the first time someone called me crazy, and raising $10, 000? Together, with LOVE-PATIENCE and FAITH--WE'VE GOT THIS!!
Wonder Natalie Merchant
Doctors have come from distants cities, just to see me Stand over my bed, disbelieving what they're seeing 1-They say I must be one of the wonders Of God's own creation And as far as they see, they can offer No explanation Newspapers ask intimate questions, want confessions They reach into my head to steal, the glory of my story (repeat 1) Ooo, I believe, fate, fate smiled And destiny laughed as she came to my cradle Know this child will be able Laughed as my body she lifted Know this child will be gifted With love, with patience, and with faith She'll make her way, she'll make her way People see me I'm a challenge to your balance I'm over your heads how I confound you And astound you To know I must be one of the wonders (rpt...1) Ooo, I believe, fate, fate smiled And destiny laughed as she came to my cradle Know this child will be able Laughed as she came to my mother Know this child will not suffer Laughed as my body she lifted Know this child will be gifted With love, with patience and with faith She'll make her way, she'll make her way
