Before the Morning

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song and a friend shared with me the story behind the song today! It makes me think of Julianne every time I hear it. I was just telling Kent about this song the other day and telling him how I can hardly wait for the day that she'll understand that all she's going through is temporary. Julianne and I sing a lot in the car and she knows many of the KLOVE songs, but I can't get through this song without getting choked up. I had NO IDEA until today that this song was about a family with a child with HLHS and just how close to our story it really is! Here's the back-story for this song:

And here's the whole song:

"...the pain that you've been feeling can't compare to the joy that's coming"
Praying that God would give Julianne wisdom beyond her years to understand His love, mercy and promise of a hope and a future through Jesus. :) Hope you enjoyed the song!!!

Thanks for sharing the story behind this song. I remember hearing on KLOVE that Josh wrote it about a sick child but never knew the exact illness. I was just on KLOVE's site a couple days ago trying to search for the story & never thought to check youtube! Just went to a memorial service last night for an 8yo boy w/ HLHS from our church & this song was just the encouragement I needed to be reminded of this morning!

Love the song and love knowing that Julianne is feeling better. What a little trooper she is.

God Bless you all.

Just wanted to add that this is a song that touches the trials not only shared by HLS families but all who are hurting, whether physical, or mental, all ultimately heart related. Grammie

I have heard this song before, liked it and also thought how encouraging it is in all of the trials of our life.

The video about this family was so touching and so very familiar of course. I know that as it was for them it had to be hard to ignore the bleak outlook that some of the doctors were giving you all in the beginning. You all are such a inspiration of what faith in Christ can do. Julianne is such a sweet child of God and you can hear it when she sings her songs etc. This is such a tribute to what you believe and instill in her.

I love you all and can't wait to see you again!

Hugs and kisses,

Aunt Suzette(aka Great Aunt)
