I heard a great song yesterday that I wanted to share that was sung by a group of men and women recovering from addictions (Voices of Recovery) by Kirk Franklin called "Imagine Me". Apparently when he was a young teenager he'd overheard his mother saying she really had not wanted him but wanted an abortion, and this is of course, affected how he perceived himself growing up. ********************************* Imagine me loving what I see when the mirror looks at me cause I, I imagine me. In a place, of no insecurities and I'm finally happy cause I imagine me. Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me cause they never did deserve me, can you imagine me. Saying no to thoughts that try to control me, remembering all you told me, Lord can you imagine me? Over what my momma said, and healed from what my daddy did and I wanna live and not read that page again. (Chorus) Imagine me, being free, trusting you totally, finally I can imagine me, I admit it was hard to see you being in love with someone like me, finally I can imagine me. Imagine me Being strong and not letting people break me down, you won't get that joy this time around. Can you imagine me? In a world, in a world nobody has to live afraid, because of your love, it's gone away, can you imagine me. Letting go of my past and glad I have another chance and not hard to dance cause I don't have to read that page again. (Repeat Chorus 2x?s) Kirk talks: This song is dedicated to people like me, those that struggle with insecurities, acceptance and even self esteem, you never felt good enough, you never felt pretty enough but imagine God whispering in your ear letting you know that everything that has happened is now..Gone, Gone, Its? Gone, All Gone Kirk?s remarks ( Um It?s All Gone. Every Sin, Every Mistake, Every Failure Its? All Gone! Depression Gone By Faith It?s Gone Low Self Esteem, Halleluiah Its Gone, All Gone, It?s Gone All My Scars All My Pain It?s In The Past , Its? Yesterday Its? All Gone( Can?t Believe Its? Gone) What Your Mother Did, What Our Father Did, Halleluiah (Its? Gone All Gone Oh Whoa)) Oh na-na-na Oh na-na-na-na-na-na Oh na-na-na-na-na-na

Oops. I was edited. Sorry. Try looking at the Space that starts with My which is very popular amongst the young folk. True - one thing you can do is search music for the artist. They usually have some of their songs on there that you can listen to - this one might be there and it would save you a trip to B&N.

This is a powerful song. I hope everyone that feels low sometimes will really read these words. Everyone out there keep hanging there and things will get better.

I'm just now getting back to music (my ex would not allow us to listen to the radio in the house...). I've actually purchased two CD's in the last few months ( a HUGE change). I used to buy music all the time, before marrying the tyrant, but somehow the joy just got sucked right out of it...hmmm. Anyway, this is something I would DEFINITELY go to Barnes and Noble to listen to and see if I wanted it. Thanks for the lyrics--that's what I look for in a song, anyway. Will look for it at B&N.

Wonderful message!!! The truth is that it was his mom's issue not his issue to bear. Getting over things like that for any and especially a child is like climbing mount everest, there are times when you have no breath and you feel like the world is squeezing you into nothing. Thanks Wanda !!
